Choosing the Right Kitchen Taps

Choosing the right kitchen tap is essential as it is the hardest working appliance in your kitchen. This guide will help you choose the perfectly designed tap for your kitchen.

We offer an extensive range of kitchen taps with the perfect balance of design and function. As the hardest working tap in your home, your kitchen tap needs to be robust, have smooth handling to ensure a precise adjustment of temperature and water flow, as well as being easy on the eyes. We have put together a selection of taps that have all of these attributes in hopes that you'll find the right one for you.

If you're after the technical types, we stock an array of kitchen taps including modern kitchen taps, boiling water taps, pull out kitchen spray taps, stainless steel kitchen taps, kitchen pillar taps, traditional kitchen taps, LED kitchen taps, 2 tap hole kitchen taps and water filtering kitchen taps.

What should I look for?

When looking to purchase a new kitchen tap we would recommend a tap with a solid metal body featuring modern ceramic disc technology. A good quality tap should last a lifetime so it is worth opting for a tap that offers a timeless appeal.

Before you purchase a kitchen tap it is important to check that your water pressure system is compatible for your choice of tap, as many taps require a minimum pressure of 0.1bar. If you require some guidance working out what bar pressure your home has, please refer to our Guide to Water Pressure.
