The mixing faucet is the best known and the most used among kitchen taps. It can be one-hole or three-hole. The difference is in how the features are positioned. A three-hole mixer tap has the two taps separated from the faucet, whereas a one-hole mixer tap has all three elements incorporated in a single block. The valves of this type of taps can be easily taken apart individually using only a traditional screwdriver.
There are two more types of mixing taps: the classic mixer tap and the thermostatic mixer tap. The first one is distinguished by its single lever that allows the user to control both the flow and temperature of the water. Assembled with ceramic plates, its lifespan increases significantly. As well as easily replaceable, the ceramic cartridge varies from brand to brand. The thermostatic mixing tap for sinks and basins allows to maintain a constant temperature to guarantee optimal comfort and safety for the most sensitive.
Our team recommends a few points to take into consideration before adding your choice to the basket. The height of the tap needs to be carefully considered, especially if your sink is positioned under a window. The nature of your pipes is also an important element to consider. For instance, nylon pipes are extremely quiet. We also recommend investing in a water saving device such as a foam device or an aerator in order to reduce your water bill.
Finally, don't forget the style of your kitchen tap! Stainless steel, chrome or black brass would fit right in in a practical and modern kitchen. A bronze finishing or in antique copper would be instead a better fit for a rustic style kitchen.
