HOW TO..... CHOOSE THE RIGHT TAPS
Today I went out in search of some new taps and I appreciate how daunting it can be for some of you so here are a few top tips to help you out.
TIP 1 = IDENTIFY WHAT YOU DON'T WANT (MODERN or TRADITIONAL)
If you know what you definitely don't want then it's easier to find what you do want.
For example, if you're creating a modern look and feel in your bathroom or kitchen then you can exclude any traditional looking styles. Whereas, if you're putting together a farmhouse kitchen then modern taps can be excluded from your search.
TIP 2 = IDENTIFY THE FINISH
Again, you're narrowing down your search by specifying the material or finish of the taps, eg: chrome, brass, copper.
TIP 3 = IDENTIFY THE DETAIL
Once you've decided on the finish and the overall look (modern or traditional) that you require, you can start looking at the detail of the taps.
Do you want a single mixer tap or separate hot and cold taps?
TIP 4 = IDENTIFY THE STYLE
Once you've worked through the previous tips you'll have a good idea of the overall look and feel that you're working towards for your kitchen or bathroom.
You can then apply these ideas and start to single out taps within this overall look and feel. Do you want a linear, square look or do you prefer more rounded fittings?
Remember, Design is in the Detail, so it is worth giving some time to this part of your search.
TIP 5 = WORK WITHIN YOUR BUDGET
Your budget is the last consideration as many tap styles are now available in all price ranges.
Work within your budget to find the best taps that fit into your requirements for all of the above tips.
