When creating a new kitchen, or renovating an old one, choosing the right taps for your kitchen sink can be an important small detail that makes all the difference to the end result. But what are the important considerations for your new kitchen taps? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals, and this is our guide to everything you should consider when choosing new kitchen taps.
Considerations for your new kitchen taps
When choosing new taps for your kitchen, there are a number of things to consider, including:
- The style of the taps
- The type of tap fitting
- The water pressure
The style of the kitchen taps
From modern pillar taps to traditional mixer taps, there are a range of taps available to choose from, each with their own unique style. You will need to choose an option that suits your kitchen, especially your kitchen sink, if you want to achieve the best aesthetic results. This can even include considering the colour of the taps, from contemporary stainless steel, to more traditional brass or brushed copper colours.
The type of tap fitting
If you need kitchen taps to fit your existing sink, you need to consider the tap holes. Sinks with 2 tap holes can have the option of installing two separate taps, like pillar taps, or installing a bridge or 2 tap hole mixer tap. While sinks with only one tap hole will be better suited to a single mixer tap.
The water pressure
If you are looking for kitchen taps to suit your water pressure, you could opt for a low pressure kitchen tap. Available in a range of styles, to suit a range of properties, this type of tap is economical and environmentally friendly.
