We are in the process of redoing the bathroom, and currently there is a freestanding tap for the bath.

Ideally we want to keep the tap to keep costs down, but we need to move it around to the other side of the bath.

It is probably max 1m away from where we want it, but I'm a bit overwhelmed with options to extend the pipes.

Could I just use these 1500mm flexible tap connectors?

I've attached a picture of the current connections.

It is pretty much why they make flexi hoses, however you really want to be able to access the hoses easily to keep and eye on them for leaks etc. This is why they are seen under sinks etc, they let you install taps easily but are still easy to access should they leak.

Will I be able to just undo the existing flexi pipes from the copper and put these in place without any other connectors?

Yes but as advised flexi can get damaged or torn I have replaced many times, I would suggest using copper or polypipe to extend and use short flexible tails lass chance of them getting ripped off by kids or damaged
