Before you begin

Single lever taps are often sleek and modern in their design and can be a fantastic choice when space is tight. They can easily be used with one hand, so work well in busy kitchens.

Two handles – known as twin lever taps, their handles can be lever, cross or knob-shaped, and might offer a quarter, half or full turn. They re a versatile choice available in traditional or contemporary styles.

Pillar Taps

Pillar taps come in pairs, with a single tap used to control the cold and another to control the hot water supply. They re a great budget option, and are available with lever, cross or knob-shaped handles to match your kitchen style.

Deck/Bridge mixer taps

Deck mixers use two tap holes but have one spout. Bridge mixer taps are similar; only instead of the mixer section sitting flush to the surface of the sink, the spout is raised above the surface, giving a bridging effect.
