Tips to Choose Right Taps For Your Bathroom and Kitchen
The devil it is said is always in the details and when it comes to bathrooms and kitchens, nothing could be truer. Bathroom taps and kitchen faucets are a big part of our lives. We use them every day almost unconsciously without stopping to think too hard about their dynamics. However, if you’re renovating your kitchen or bathroom, then you’re probably on the hunt for good quality bath taps.
Fortunately, we’ve put together a guide to help you know how to choose kitchen taps and bathroom faucets.
1. Look for durability and functionality
While it is important to consider the look of the taps it is just as important to also consider the durability and functionality of the faucets you’re opting for. You don’t want to be replacing your taps anytime soon. Find out what material the taps are made of before purchasing them. Good materials include brass and chrome. In order to get a good assessment of what’s available in the market in terms of durable taps, check out Christopher Alexander’s product range.
2. Get your measurements just right
Before heading out to buy your taps, take time to measure the hole where the taps will be installed. Measuring this will give you an idea of the size of the taps you should purchase. The last thing you want is to find the taps you love, buy them and then discover that they don’t fit in the holes that have been left for the installation of the tap.
3. Select a style that complements the space
The tap you choose should be able to fit right in with the current theme of your kitchen or bathroom. It should merge well and look aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. It shouldn’t draw too much attention to itself. The best styles are those that complement the theme in a subtle manner in both the bathroom and or kitchen.
4. What type of finish do you want?
When choosing kitchen taps, one of the most fundamental things to also factor in is the finish of the tap. Now, there are different types of finishes from coloured lacquer which can be satin-brushed or polished and made to shine brilliantly. It’s always a good idea to ensure that the chrome plating is of a sufficiently thick nature too for the best look.
5. Buy trusted brand names
The market is now flooded with products from all sorts of bath ware retailers. When purchasing kitchen and bathroom taps we always recommend that you purchase from reputable and trusted brand names that have been around for a while.
