Sinks and Taps Buying Guide

Sinks and Taps Buying Guide

 Sink and Tap Buying Guide

The sink and tap you choose for your kitchen can be the perfect finishing touch, not only by enhancing the overall look, but also by making everyday tasks easier. The sink is an essential appliance that you use regularly, so selecting the right tap or mixer can be challenging due to the vast range of finishes and types available. The tap head or handles can have a single lever, crosshead, dual lever or knob design, making the decision even more difficult. However, with the broad range of sizes, styles, and colours available, finding the perfect sink and tap combo to suit any kitchen has never been easier.


Ceramic sinks are a popular choice for homes because of their robust and heat-resistant build. They come in a wide variety of colours, shapes and styles, making them easy to clean and an excellent addition to any kitchen. Stainless steel sinks and taps are durable and practical, with a low cost and easy installation. Their clean and neutral look makes them a great fit for any kitchen's design. Granite sinks are superior to other types in terms of heat, scratch, chip and stain resistance, and are available in a variety of colours. Chrome taps have a beautiful finish but require maintenance to maintain their shine. Brass taps are ideal for a country-style home and can become a focal point of your kitchen. Brushed, matte, and satin taps offer a sleek and shiny finish to give your kitchen a modern look.

Number of Bowls

A single sink bowl is useful if you don't have a lot of washing up to do, for example, if you have a dishwasher. They come in a variety of shapes and have a single drain. One and a half bowl sinks have a large bowl for washing up and a smaller side bowl for rinsing dishes or draining liquids without dirtying the larger bowl. Two-bowl sinks allow you to wash and rinse dishes simultaneously, saving time if you have a large amount of washing up.


A pull-out spout is similar to a showerhead and allows you to control exactly where the water flows. It is unbeatable for rinsing and washing off food, making it a handy extra for any kitchen.
