How to Choose the Right Taps For Your Kitchen
Most people think that choosing kitchen tapware is easy but oftentimes it’s a daunting task. The tap you choose must look good, suit the style of your kitchen and increase the efficiency of your kitchen. There are so many options on the market and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and just choose the first one that you see. That is not the smart approach instead you must take your time considering options before you choose one.
1 Your Kitchen Style
The type of kitchen space you have should determine what kind of taps you consider buying. The design style of your kitchen and the space around the sink are all important factors to keep in mind. For example: small sinks do not work well with retractable taps in such case a high spout single lever tap would be preferable.
2 Get a Good Finish
When it comes to tapware finishes, the options are endless. Polished chrome, matte black, brushed nickel, rose gold, gun metal, and brushed gold are just a few of the top choices that are very popular at the moment. The finish you choose must be cohesive with your appliances and kitchen hardware. If you want something more daring, coloured tapware may be a better choice.
3 Consider Shape and Size
Getting the right shape and size when choosing tapware is just as important as the design and finish of the tapware. Taps that have medium or high spouts are very appealing and practical and can accommodate large pots. However, if you have a small sink this may not work for you and it’s better served by tapware that is smaller in shape and size.
4 Consider the Mounting Style
There are many tapware mounting styles and each of them are more suited to a specific type of tapware. Some kitchen taps are mounted on the wall, some on the benchtop and some directly above the sink. The tapware that complements these different mounting styles has different pros and cons for example: sink mounted tapware are generally less expensive, easier to clean and to replace.
5 Consider the Ergonomics
Finally, before you choose a particular tap for your kitchen you must think of how easy it will be to use. Children and people with hand mobility issues may have problems using taps that have rounded handles. To make it easy for anyone that decides to use the sink lever handles are the smarter and more ergonomic choice.
With many options available you need to consider your needs before choosing a particular style. If you need more help, don’t hesitate to consult the professionals for expert advice.
