ABOUT KITCHEN TAPS
Kitchen taps divide into modern and traditional designs. Modern kitchen taps are usually in chrome, but are also available in stainless steel, in black, and with parts of the kitchen tap in a colour to match a composite kitchen sink. Modern kitchen taps may have single or dual handles, and may have a flexible hose with a spray rinse. Traditional kitchen taps are suitable for use in farm-house-style kitchens. These kitchen taps are available in chrome, and also in antique finishes such as brushed nickel and bronze. Some traditional kitchen taps feature decorative ceramic parts.
