Choosing Taps To Match Granite Composite Sinks
The kitchen has long been the heart of the home, a place where we gather, cook, and create lasting memories. A dream kitchen is a kitchen where functionality meets aesthetics and where every detail is carefully thought out.
When it comes to designing the perfect kitchen, there's one element that often takes centre stage: the sink. We have already dwelled into how granite composite kitchen sinks can be a game changer in your kitchen design in our blog What Are Composite Sinks? If you have chosen a granite composite kitchen sink as the centrepiece, it’s already a promising choice to exude elegance and durability. The decision-making process does not end with the sink. It is also crucial to select the right tap to match the beautiful granite composite kitchen sink as it contributes to the overall aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen. It is an opportunity to infuse your kitchen with style, personality, and sophistication. A well-chosen tap can either harmonize with the sink's design or create a bold contrast that adds drama and character to your kitchen.
So, if you are wondering which tap to style with your granite sink, this page will serve you well.
1. Steel Taps in Chrome or Brushed Finish:
First up is to style your granite sink with steel taps in either chrome or brushed finish. What was once considered modern is now conventional and found in most kitchens across the UK. The steel taps offer to seamlessly match to other stainless steel elements in your kitchen such as the cooker hood, the hob and other stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. This uniformity can create a cohesive and contemporary look, promoting a sense of unity within your kitchen's design. Moreover, steel taps are often a suitable choice if you prefer a coordinated appearance, as they can match the default provided waste and even the hinges in the same finish. However, it's essential to note that the gloss and stainless steel combination, which was a massive trend in kitchen design in the UK and Ireland in the 2000s, may be considered somewhat outdated by today's design standards. While they remain a practical choice for your kitchen, you may need additional design elements to bring life to your kitchen aesthetics. Tak a look at our chrome and brushed kitchen taps.
