KITCHEN TAPS & SINKS A sink is a bowl-shaped plumbing fixture used for washing hands, dishwashing, and other purposes. Sinks have taps that supply hot and cold water and may include a spray feature to be used for faster rinsing.

What to consider before buying a kitchen sink tap?

Where the tap will be mounted

This is dependent on where your tap hole is currently. There are two different mounting types, sink mounted or worktop mounted. You’ll also need to make sure that the tap you choose has a spout that reaches the centre of your sink to ensure full functionality of your tap, so have your measurements to hand before you shop.  

Style of tap

There are U or F shaped available in top or side levers, or spring-neck and pull-out options if your sink is often full with plates and pots that need cleaning.

Water flow & temperature control

Single lever taps are easy to control with one hand. Twin levers on the other hand allow you to mix in hot & cold water separately.

Color & Finish

It’s a good idea to coordinate the metal elements in your kitchen, like cabinet handles and appliances. If there is a particular kitchen style you are interested in, research its colors, elements and details to get an idea what you’d like your kitchen to look like.

What styles and shapes are taps available in?

Single-Hole Kitchen Faucet

This type of kitchen faucet requires only one hole in the countertop for installation and has a fairly simple design.

Kitchen Faucet with a Side Sprayer

While both the faucet and the side sprayer will use the same water pipe, the sprayer will extend similarly as a detachable spray head. It will have its own features like 360-degrees swivel, adjustable aerators, etc.

Double-Hole Kitchen Faucet

This type of kitchen faucet is also known as a double-handle faucet or a center set faucet as it features two separate handles for controlling hot and cold water.

Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet

The spray heads of the Pull-Down kitchen faucets are located in a downward direction and used as an extension of the faucet. They don’t have a separate hose which can make them less flexible. This means that there are fewer chances of splashing as well.

Wall-Mounted Kitchen Faucet

This is ideal for small homes or small counter space as it clears more elbow space for you.

Widespread Kitchen Faucet

While the center set faucets have a single metal plate connecting all the parts, widespread kitchen faucets have all the pieces separated which need to be installed individually.

You can space them anywhere between 6-inches to 16-inches so, proper planning is required. So, you can customize the faucet according to your needs and requirements.

Touchless Kitchen Faucet

This is a comparatively newer style of the faucet which employs sensors to start the water flow.
