Not only highly-functional items in the kitchen that serve a very important purpose, the right tapware (taps and spouts) enhances the sink area and adds style and character to the entire kitchen. That means it’s important to select the right tapware for your kitchen by considering a number of important points, including the following three which aren’t to be overlooked.
There’s tapware for every style of kitchen, from country and traditional-style kitchens for which tapware with gentle, graceful curves are a great choice to modern kitchens in which sleek tapware with sharp, defined lines and shiny finishes is understandably very popular.
This is one of the most important issues to bear in mind when selecting new tapware for your kitchen. As taps are purchased separately from sinks, you need to consider features such as:
- The diameter of the tapware – is it designed to exclusively fit a single sink style?
- The area behind the sink – does it provide ample space for the tap to be fitted?
- The configuration – is the sink designed for separate taps or a mixer tap?
If you’re planning to visit us at our showroom, please take a few photos of the sink area so that we can help you make the right decisions about the tapware you select for your kitchen.
Spouts come in different shapes, sizes and styles, so you need to consider the layout of your sink area and the style of your kitchen, along with the logistics of washing up – will the spout selected provide ample space to place large pots, pans and trays underneath when washing up?
As you can see, there’s a lot to consider when selecting new tapware for your home, so please don’t hesitate to visit our showroom in Charmhaven or book an appointment to have one of our kitchen design and supply consultants visit you at home and advise you on the wide range of premium-quality kitchen tapware we supply.
