When you’re designing your kitchen, designer style and high tech appliances will often be high on your wishlist. But have you thought about what you want from your kitchen taps? While you might think you tap needs are insignificant to your other kitchen wants, choosing the right tap can make a major difference to your kitchen living. Find out how as we explore some of the best kitchen taps on the market right now…
Say goodbye to filter water jugs with a tap that dispenses regular water and filtered water with just one fitting. The Blancofiltra flow tap is just one example of the new multi-directional tap and operates in two directions – giving you mains water when pulled one way, and filtered water when pulled another way.
Ditch the kettle and adopt the ultra modern boiling water tap. At Kitchen Design Centre we’re big fans of the Quooker tap. In fact, it features in many of our designs. Unlike a regular hot water tap it can deliver steaming hot water instantly, allowing you to make your cup of tea or boil your rice and veggies in an instant. What’s more, the Quooker tap saves energy and water, and costs you just three pence a day to have boiling water whenever you want it.
If you’re looking for a tap to complement your kitchen design you’re in luck. You don’t just have to stick to stainless steel silver designs these days; kitchen taps are available in a variety of colours, including black. One of our favourites has to be the BLANCOELIPSO-S II, from Blanco, which features one of today’s in-colours. And for the popular industrial style kitchen, why not opt for brass or chrome?
If you’re a keen cook, or use a basin rather than a dishwasher to wash up, you’ll love the cleaning power of the spray tap. Its flexibility means washing and rinsing is easy, allowing you to clean at a variety of angles with ease. What’s more, the design of the pull-out spray tap is pretty stylish too!
If you’ve got a soft spot for gadgets, you’ll love Grohe’s Minta Touch Tap. Simply tap it with your wrist to turn it on and off. This clever feature also ensures you’ll avoid getting your tap mucky or covered in germs and bacteria.
