Kitchen mixer tap features to look for

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

Our vast range of BLANCO kitchen mixer taps come in a variety of colours and styles as well as boasting a host of different features. Each model is perfectly designed for the modern household as well as traditional kitchens. Spray features, height, colour and finish are just some of the things you need 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

Water pressure is an important factor to consider in UK households. Cold water should flow directly from the mains, but the hot water pressure can make a big difference as to how well the tap performs. Find out more about high versus low pressure taps here. If you have any questions or concerns please contact your local BLANCO retailer to find out more.

Single-lever or twin-handle tap

Single-lever or twin-handle kitchen tap

Single-lever kitchen mixer taps are convenient as both the temperature and flow of the water can be regulated with just one hand. Twin-handle kitchen taps can be both traditional and modern in design and while they offer less convenience in terms of temperature control, can look just as striking. Our VICUS® range offers both single and twin lever options, in a range of finishes.

Extendable spray

Extendable spray

A pull-out spray increases the working radius considerably compared to kitchen taps with a cylindrical spout. Your pans and dishes do not have to be in the kitchen sink for you to fill them and you can easily 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

The BLANCO FILTRA Pro kitchen tap combines both a standard water supply and fresh filtered water in one tap. The under-sink filter cartridge acts to remove impurities, supplying top quality drinking water on demand. As well as removing sediment and dirt, our BLANCO FILTRA Pro kitchen mixer tap is effective against a wide range of contaminants including limescale, toxins and heavy metals, without removing essential minerals.
