Kitchen mixer tap features to look for

The guide to selecting the best mixer tap for your kitchen.

The balanced breadth and depth of the range of BLANCO's kitchen taps and the many different designs and endless new shapes ensure the largest choice for our customers. The models are all perfectly designed for the modern household: Spray features, faucet height, color and finish are just some of the things you want to consider when selecting a mixer tap for your kitchen. Below are some helpful tips on how to choose the right kitchen mixer tap for you:

Water pressure

Water pressure

Something you need to consider first, though, is your water pressure. Cold water should be direct from the mains, but the hot water pressure can make a big difference to how well the tap performs, and that's down to your individual system. Please contact your local retailer to find out more

Single-lever or twin-handle tap

Single-lever or twin-handle kitchen tap

The single-lever kitchen mixer tap is becoming increasingly popular. Both the temperature and flow of the water can be regulated with just one hand; a crucial advantage compared to traditional, twin-handle kitchen taps . Another plus point is that a single-lever mixer uses less water than twin-handle mixer tap because the temperature is adjusted quickly without having to run the water for a long time. Nevertheless, twin-handle kitchen taps are still very popular in the UK and BLANCO offers a wide range of both, single-lever and twin-handle taps.

Extendable spray

Extendable spray

A pull-out spray increases the working radius considerably compared to kitchen taps with a cylindrical spout. Your cooking vessels do not have to be in the kitchen sink for you to fill them, you can rinse dirt away from the bowl or clean the sink drainer. Many sprays can be switched from a normal jet to a spray jet especially relevant when cleaning vegetables. Mousseur (aerator) sprays are ideal for kitchen taps with an L-shaped or U-shaped spout.

Filter taps

Filter taps

WIth today's emphasis on healthy lifestyles demand for fresh filtered water is increasing. The BLANCO FILTRA FLOW and the BLANCO FILTRA FRESH models combine both the standard supply and fresh filtered water in one tap. The under-sink filter cartridge of our filtered water taps acts against potentially undesirable elements to supply top quality drinking water on demand. As well as removing sediment and dirt, the filtered water taps are effective against a wide range of contaminants including chemicals, toxins and heavy metals, without removing essential minerals.
