Top Tips for Buying Taps Your Ultimate Guide 1


Choosing the right taps for your bathroom or kitchen is essential not only for the functionality of your space but also for its aesthetic appeal.

At Tapron UK, we offer a wide selection of taps, from sleek modern designs to timeless traditional styles, ensuring there's something for every taste and requirement.

This guide provides top tips for selecting the perfect taps to complement your kitchen and bathroom, enhancing both their utility and style.

Understanding Your Needs

1. Assess Your Space: Consider the size and layout of your bathroom or kitchen. A large, freestanding basin might suit tall, deck-mounted taps, while a compact sink could benefit from wall-mounted or monobloc options.

2. Match Your Style: Whether your space exudes contemporary chic or traditional charm, choose taps that align with your aesthetic. Explore our collections, including modern basin taps for a sleek look and traditional basin taps to add classic elegance.

Considerations for Functionality

1. Water Pressure: Ensure the taps you choose are compatible with your home's water pressure. High-pressure systems work well with a wide range of taps, while low-pressure systems may require specific models to function optimally.

2. Type of Tap: From sensor taps that offer hygiene and convenience, to bath mixer taps that provide a seamless blend of hot and cold water, select the type that best suits your daily needs.

Installation and Compatibility

1. Fitting Type: Decide between wall-mounted and deck-mounted taps based on your basin or bath setup. Wall-mounted taps can save space and create a clean look, while deck-mounted taps offer versatility and ease of installation.

2. Number of Holes: Check the number of pre-drilled holes in your basin or bath. Single-hole configurations are ideal for monobloc basin mixer taps, while three-hole setups may accommodate bath fillers or basin pillar taps.

Aesthetic Appeal

1. Finish and Material: Taps come in various finishes, from chrome to matte black. Consider a finish that complements your bathroom or kitchen's color scheme and the durability of the material for long-lasting beauty.

2. Design Features: Look for taps that offer both style and practicality. Features like swivel spouts for kitchen taps and thermostatic controls for bath taps can enhance usability while adding to the overall design of your space.

Sustainability and Efficiency

1. Water-Saving Features: Opt for taps with aerators or flow limiters to reduce water consumption without compromising performance, contributing to a more sustainable home.

2. Maintenance and Care: Choose taps that are easy to clean and maintain, ensuring they continue to look great and function well over time.


Selecting the right taps is a crucial aspect of designing your bathroom or kitchen, impacting both the look and functionality of these spaces. By considering your needs, style, water pressure, and installation requirements, you can find the perfect taps to complement your home.
