Kitchen taps come in a wide range of styles, sizes and formats. There are twin taps, mixer taps and some with rotating spouts. Optionally, they can have stretch hoses, aerators and other fitments.
Choosing A Tap
When choosing a tap, it advisable to fit a quality item that suits the sink (and surrounding worktops). There is nothing more annoying than a leaking and dripping tap.
Kitchen taps need to be fitted properly. They generally require a suitable hole with lugs or opening to ensure they don't move or rotate when operated. If there is one thing more annoying than a dripping tap it's a tap that moves when you try to use it!
You need to make sure no part of the tap fouls the surfaces behind it and that out can operate it without you hands hitting the surfaces too. A decent space behind taps is also advisable to ensure you can clean behind them. Generally, the gap behind a tap is dictated by the sink location, so check this before the sink is fitted.
