Kitchen tapware comes in a range of designs from beautiful ornate styles, elegant curved edges and practical mixer taps. The kitchen sink is the center of all kitchen activity and has different needs compared to your bathroom and laundry taps. Here is a guide on how to choose the right kitchen tap to suit your lifestyle that is not only practical but also stylish.

Single and Double Handle Mixer Taps
The most common type of tap you will find in a modern kitchen is a mixer tap with a single control handle which is great for multi-tasking. Single handle taps enable you to get your desired water temperature faster than one with a double handle, are the easiest to use and install and are available in most contemporary designs.

For a more traditional design, a double handle tap often comes in ornate designs and is suitable for French provincial kitchens. Two handle faucets have a dedicated hot and cold control and due to this, have a higher level of control for desired water temperature and flow.

Pull-Out and Pull-Down Spray Tap
Oversized spray taps with a long hose and multi-function spray head are great for frequent cooks who often use a large variety of pots and pans. Pull-out spray taps make it easier to fill up large pots and allow you to maneuver the flexible hose around your kitchen pans to spray off food scraps. Spray taps make cleaning dishes and washing vegetables easier as you can control the direction of the water and their pull-out nozzle function allows more freedom and space in your basin.

Mixer Tap with Water Filter
Kitchen taps with water filters allows access to chilled, filtered water right from your kitchen sink and offers a cost effective solution to buying bottled water. They can be finished in designs matching your regular kitchen tap and are a great investment.

With many factors to take into consideration, choosing the right kitchen tap comes down to your personal requirements and taste. For guidance on choosing the right design that best suits your needs, seek the advice of the professionals in kitchen design.
