There are several things to think about when choosing taps for your kitchen sink – with the main two factors being style and usability.

Apart from the basic style considerations, there are also loads of fancy taps on the market with extra functionality – from hot water taps to with built-in drinking water filters – so have a look through our round-up of the best designs before going shopping.
