Taps aren’t usually worth writing home about.  After all, their purpose is primarily functional.  You press or twist something and water comes out.

But the appearance and design of your taps can count for more than you may expect when it comes to the kitchen or bathroom.  But choosing tapware that complements your home’s décor, you may even increase the value of a home.

Don’t believe me?  Think about it – many articles on “How To Sell Your Home For Fat Stacks Of Cash” (or something similar) recommend improving the little things around the house as an effective and relatively inexpensive way to motivate an on-the-fence buyer into committing to a sale.

Fresh coats of paint or tidying up the garden can help, but one of the best ways to give your home an attractive appearance without overcapitalising is to smarten up the home’s fittings, from light switches and lamps to doorknobs and, yes, taps.

A designer tap with a unique and attractive look can transform a merely functional bathroom or kitchen into a splendid one that buyers and renters are more likely to value.  But it takes more than just a pretty tap to provide real value to a home – it needs to be functional as well, going above and beyond just having water come out.
