One thing to remember is that kitchen faucets and tap fittings are not just casual fixtures or additions to a kitchen. Rather kitchen taps enhance the décor of the kitchen as it certainly occupies the centerpiece of any kitchen. It is after all, not just an ornamental fitting but has practical usage. Due to the availability of several types of kitchen taps available in the market today, we must do some investigation to select the right one as it is a messy job to replace or redo in case of faulty selection.
Guidelines in buying the perfect kitchen tap:
Firstly, you must have an idea about the right number of holes that can be drilled in the sink for the tap to be fixed. Those taps that require just a single holed installation come with the spout and handle joined together. Sometimes, a three holed installation is required and the tap models that require these have a couple of levers and the spout. Also keep an idea of the height of the sink and a deep sink may require a shorter spouted tap as this can reduce water splashing. In case of shallow sinks or double sinks, pull out faucets will work best. Apart from this you should also know the level of water pressure that is present in your house. Coming to the styles of kitchen taps, there are a lot many out on the stores these days. Some of them are fusion style, separate spray, touch less/motion detection and two sprayed taps.
