A perfect way to finish a sleek and contemporary kitchen design off is with a modern kitchen tap and there are hundreds of different styles to choose from.
You can really spend as little or as much on your kitchen taps as you like, but to make a real feature of them you'll probably have to pay slightly more. However, by shopping online you can not only get the best range, but also make the best savings.
Most modern kitchen taps are 'mono' which means they only have one tap which swivels or rotates to provide hot and cold water. However, if you prefer to have two seperate taps there are still a host of different designs to choose from. This is something you might want to think about in advance before the choice becomes even more confusing.
A new feature that is appearing on more moden kitchen taps is the rinser. The rinser is a seperate device that is attached to the tap and can be manually picked up and moved around like a detachable shower head. Although it isn't particularly sleek and minimalist, it does provide excellent functionality for washing up and other tasks.
The most popular modern kitchen tap design is the loop tap that looks like an upside down U. This normally has seperate hot and cold knobs that feed into the one tap. This offers great functionality but also makes a bold and dramatic feature of the modern tap.
One thing you're unlikely to see in a modern kitchen is a two tap design. Despite many people preferring this more traditional method, manufacturers don't design this style for modern kitchens frequently any longer.
