I don’t know about you but, I find it very hard to look at items online and know what to choose. When you’re after a specific style/colour scheme, the options seem endless! We have created this as a guide on how to build your perfect kitchen by colour. This blog handpicks some of our favourite taps, sinks and accessories that we know would look great in your kitchen!
Back to Black…
A timeless, classic black kitchen will never go out of style. If you are looking to create a luxury, feel this is a direction to go in. With black being one of the most versatile colours, it will suit almost every design.
One of our bestselling sinks is the Astini Elmo 100L 1.0 Bowl Granite Nero Black Reversible Kitchen Sink & Waste. Astini is a company that offers great value for money, and you will not have to worry about breaking the bank! Made from granite, the sink is scratch, heat and stain-resistant. The use of three unique drainer groove patterns on the draining board adds a touch of class. Its simple, elegant design is sure to take your black kitchen to the next level!
Make a statement with the ‘Vibrance Single Lever Kitchen Sink Mixer Tap‘. With this tap, you can completely customise the levers. There are many options to choose from whilst still having that sleek, matt black finish to the body of the tap. The colours range from cotton candy pink to neon green. This makes it a fantastic way to add some quirkiness to your black kitchen theme. All this whilst keeping it classic and elegant – How great is that! And with a mid-range price, you can’t go wrong.
Why not tie your whole kitchen together with the ‘Inmotion 50L Black Stainless Steel Auto Sensor Kitchen Waste Dust Bin’? Combining ease and style, this bin is top of the range. Simply wave your hand above the sensor located at the front of the lid to automatically open it using infrared technology. Although subtle, this accessory will make a huge impact on the overall finish. It will combine all the matt black accents to create the perfect, black kitchen.
I’m dreaming…of a White Kitchen
All-white kitchens do not get the appreciation they deserve! They are a blank canvas as to which you can add your own personality with splashes of colourful accents. Choosing to have an all-white kitchen is very brave but, it could be one of the best decisions you will make. It will add brightness and can open up your kitchen space.
If you are looking for a white sink, we recommend the RAK Jennifer White Ceramic Belfast Butler Kitchen Sink. This would fit in perfectly with a country-style space. It has a weir overflow giving it that complete rustic feel. It also comes bearing a huge 10-year manufacturer’s guarantee against manufacturing defects. Therefore, it looks super stylish, and you can enjoy it with complete peace of mind!
Now, you may need a tap to go with your Belfast sink. Our choice is the Astini Colonial Chrome & Double White Ceramic Handle Kitchen Sink Mixer Tap. Although this is a chrome tap, it is very subtle when paired with the ceramic sink. It also has white ceramic handles to tie things together nicely.
However, if you are not completely sold by the chrome, we do have the ‘Franke Pola Fragranite Polar White Single Lever Mixer Tap‘. This is ideal to suit more of a modern style kitchen and would pair well with a synthetic sink.
Pushed aside in the world of decor for far too long, natural shades are finally making their way back into people’s kitchens. And let me tell you…we are here for it! Tranquil and sophisticated – cream/beige shades are perfect if you want that luxury look.
Some of our best-selling neutral sinks are the Shaws of Darwin in ‘biscuit’. These are higher-end products, but you do get premium quality. They’re an off-white, beige shade that would look great in a minimalistic, traditional style kitchen. Perfect for adding warmth and creating your perfect cosy space! They also do a ceramic drainer in the same shade to match.
We also have a range of cream/beige taps available with one of the best-sellers being the Blanco Mida Champagne Beige Single Lever Mixer Tap. Demonstrating sophistication and elegance, you can really see why this tap is a favourite. I mean you could even say it is the ‘crème de la crème’.
How to be bold with gold…
Adding metal features into your kitchen can be really striking. It is an easy way to create dimension and add pops of colour. By adding gold furniture/accessories you can bring warmth and lavishness to your kitchen.
The LSC Kensington 1.5 Bowl Brushed Gold Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink is the perfect addition to make your gold kitchen look striking. This contemporary sink comes complete with a waste kit and overflow – all in matching gold. Although not for everyone, it does add a luxurious effect to your kitchen that will leave your guests wowed.
Now for the showstopper, the ‘Villeroy & Boch Umbrella Brushed Gold Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink Mixer Tap’. This tap is made from high-quality stainless steel, making it more robust and long-lasting. The simple design demonstrates class and elegance. Making it a perfect addition to your sophisticated, gold kitchen. Why not pair it with the brushed gold soap dispenser to match!
500 Shades of Grey:
Grey is one of the most popular shades that people choose for their kitchens. It is easy on eye and is such a good base colour. You can layer up different shades of grey – making a monochromatic masterpiece.
One of our bestselling sinks is the Schock Formhaus D100L 1.0 Bowl Croma Grey Granite Kitchen Sink & Waste. This sink has a classic design and an easy to clean surface, making it extremely user friendly. This sink would work well in a modern kitchen but will not look out of place in some more traditional style kitchens. The sink has a unique, patterned drainer and a 5-year guarantee against manufacturing defects. What’s not to love!
Another way to add grey to your kitchen is with the Caple Avel Brushed Gunmetal Dual Lever Mixer Tap. The colour is on the darker side of the grey spectrum and would look bold in a modern, minimalistic kitchen. The brushed finish looks great and gives a fresh, clean look.
Over the Rainbow…
Another great way to add pops of colour and personality into your kitchen is with the Tap Factory Vibrance range. Sometimes it can be really hard to know how to make your kitchen look more unique and stand out from the crowd. Well, we have a range of products on offer that are manufactured by The Tap Factory. They come in plenty of colours ranging from burnt orange to bright, neon green so there really is something for everyone!
The Vibrance radiators are especially popular and are one of our favourites here at Taps UK. The innovative design is completely original and we have never seen anything like it!
