There’s a wide variety of tapware to choose from therefore you should be aware of a couple of things. Although you may assume that picking out tapware is as easy as browsing our selection you will need to also consider the following:

Style of Tapware:

Whether you’re looking to update the aesthetic of your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry, tapware is available in various designs to meet your needs. Consider the room’s existing finishes and colours while deciding how to decorate it. Tapware with minimal design is a good choice for a modern bathroom, while the separate hot and cold designs are more suited for a traditional look.

  • Pull-out taps:

Need to be able to wash big pots or the kids’ dirty athletic gear by hand? To facilitate the cleaning of large objects, a pull-out tap is attached to a hose that can be retracted. These pull-out types work well in a big and deep sink.

  • Mixers:

This tapware model uses just one lever to regulate the water’s flow and warmth. Modern kitchens, baths, and laundry benefit from the sleek, compact design of mixer taps for easy installation.

  • Duo function sink mixers:

Spray function lets you modify the water flow, so you can switch between a broad spray for washing veggies and a narrower spray for focusing on specific areas.

  • Stand-alone shower taps:

To add a style to your bathroom, consider a freestanding bath mixer set. A bath mixer that is floor-mounted and freestanding is preferable if the tub is set in an area without easy access to the wall.

Value and Performance:

Both quality and cost should be considered when making a purchase decision. Low-priced tapware is attractive for short term use. Quality tapware at a reasonable price might not be trendy but it should provide you a peace of mind for durability. It would be best if you didn’t compromise on tapware because the kitchen and sink are two of the most-used fixtures at home.


Think about how the tapware functionality, quality and design before you make a decision has different types of brands and design to suit all needs.
