Which style of tap can I choose from?

What style of tap are you looking for? We have 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. If you don’t have a dishwasher, these options are perfect as they make it so much simpler to shift any grime.

Which type of kitchen tap can I choose?

Consider how you want to control your water flow and temperature. Single levers make it super easy to control the water flow and temperature with one hand, whilst our twin levers allow you to mix in hot and cold water separately, depending on which you’d prefer. 

Which tap finish can I choose from?

Think about what colour and finish will match your kitchen. It’s a good idea to coordinate the metal elements in your kitchen, like cabinet handles and appliances. Have you found a cabinet handle you like? Is there a particular kitchen style you’re after? We probably have a tap to match it. It’s these small details that will really help your kitchen stand out.
