The Perfect Kitchen Tap3 min read

To choose the perfect tap for the kitchen it should consist of a wonderful balance of design and function. A single-lever mixer is perfect for an open-plan space, as it balances the purity of the room, as well as redefining the lines within the kitchen style. A two-handle mixer is an ideal choice for a more traditional kitchen.

Are you short on space? A wall-mounted tap is a perfect option, as these are plumbed into the splashback freeing up your work area to prepare for that tasty dish. Are you looking for a professional look? Opt for a 360 spout and pull-out attachment. How about adding the tap to the island?

A two-handle tap adapts to any kitchen environment with their classic styling. They look sophisticated but also appear stunning amongst a lovely granite or quartz worktop. They also feature individual levers or handles to control the hot and cold water, ideal for a multi-functional space.

With a single-lever tap, you control the level of the cold and hot water as well as the flow with just one hand, the other hand is available to use the rinsing spray. The levers can either be mounted on the top or at the side of the tap body. Rinsing sprays are perfect for enthusiastic and keen cooks as they make the cooking the easiest of work and do look great.


Choosing stainless steel and chrome taps complement all kitchen styles. A sparkling chrome will add a highlight to the kitchen area and enhance the look, while sleek stainless steel gives a professional look and has amazing anti-bacterial qualities.
