Few items in your kitchen receive as much as daily use as your tap. So, we place great importance on tapware solutions that stand the test of time. We partner with the world’s leading providers of taps to ensure that both cooking and clean-up is a breeze – and that your tap looks great while doing so.
We have a wide range of tapware that perfectly complement the unique style of your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry while also meeting your practical needs. For modern spaces, opt for sleek and minimalist tapware, while more traditional style homes will benefit from rounded and intricate designs.
Here is our tap style and finishes guide:
Three-Piece Tap Sets: For those seeking a classic finish, the timeless three-piece tap set is the perfect choice. Consisting of a hot tap, a cold tap, and a spout, these taps are traditionally installed independently on or above the benchtop, making them a popular option for traditional bathrooms.
Spray Mixer Taps: These taps have an adjustable faucet so you can alter the water pressure to suit the task.
Gooseneck Taps: Elevate the finish of your kitchen or bathroom with the trendy shape of gooseneck taps. Their height not only adds a striking focal point but also allows easier cleaning of larger items. Choose from high, curved styles or tall, square designs. Gooseneck taps are best suited for spacious kitchens, bathrooms, or generous kitchen islands.
Mixer Taps: Have complete control over water flow and temperature with the convenience of a single lever. Mixer taps have a sleek and minimalist design that effortlessly complements contemporary kitchens, bathrooms and laundries, particularly shallow sinks and basins.
Pull-Out Taps: This style of tap includes a retractable hose. These taps are ideal for large, deep, or double sinks and make washing big pos and pans effortless.
Swivel Spout Taps: Eliminate the frustration of a spout that falls short while cleaning large pans. Opt for a swivel-spout tap that can be rotated left or right, providing maximum reach and convenience. When it comes to selecting the right style, draw inspiration from the room’s colours, finishes, and overall aesthetics.
Chrome: The timeless appeal of shiny chrome tapware is still a popular and practical choice because of its durability, easy maintenance and rust resistance. With a wide array of styles available, chrome taps offer great value for money.
Matte Black: It’s difficult to resist stylish and affordable matt-black tapware. Make a bold statement by matching it with other black elements in the room, such as appliances, mirrored splashbacks and light fixtures.
Copper/brass: Offering a softer and slightly warmer finish compared to stainless steel, copper for brass add a striking touch without being overly flashy. Choose from a polished (shiny) or satin (brushed) finish. Over time, copper or brass develops a lovely, aged look, further enhancing its charm.
Grey: Stay on-trend with the sleek and dark-grey allure of gunmetal finish tapware. Its smooth, metallic lustre beautifully complements modern spaces and is a nice alternative to black.
The most important thing to consider when choosing your tap is the proportion to the space it’s in. Consider a smaller tap for a small sink, while larger or double basins require taps of taller heights or lengths. Additionally, ensure your chosen style directs water to the centre of the sink or basin, to optimise functionality and convenience.
