Whether you’re redecorating your kitchen or doing it up for the first time, the kitchen is one place you DeltaKitchenFaucet156SSWFxLargeneed to pay a lot of attention to kitchen doors, Cabinets, counters, sinks, and of course taps, are the most important elements that go into making a great kitchen. Let’s take a look at the most popular models of kitchen taps – by style, material and functionality.


One of the latest and best-selling taps are PVD, or physical vapour deposition finish. These are highly scratch resistant, as their exteriors are bombarded with charged metal atoms that bond chemically to the base metal surface; corrosive drain cleaners however, may end up staining them a bit.

Chrome is perhaps the most popular finish, and while it is pretty durable, it can be scratched a heavy duty scouring pad.

Stainless steel is more scratch resistant than chrome. If you want a rustic look, then bronze is what you want.


A single handle tap is easy to install and use; the handle can be attached to the tap or installed to the side, and a sprayer can be installed to be part of the deck or the spout.
If you need to have both hot and cold water in your kitchen sink, you may want to consider the two-handle model which allows more accurate temperature adjustments

Spout styles

If you need compact and economical taps, then straight is what you need; fitting big pots under them maybe a tad tricky though. Gooseneck spout taps can accommodate large vessels under them, but make sure your sink is not very shallow, otherwise you might have to bear with a fair amount of splashing.

Pull-out Taps – These are gaining popularity rapidly, and are flexible and convenient, as they combine spray head and spout; the spout usually pulls out of the tap on a hose or pipe, with a counterweight facilitating its neat retraction. This kind of spout is useful for rinsing produce and even the sink. Just make sure that the hose length is sufficient to reach every corner of the sink.
