A guide to buying and maintaining gold kitchen taps

Gold kitchen taps are a popular trend in kitchen design, bringing a touch of luxury and sophistication to any kitchen. Whether you are looking to update your current kitchen or are starting from scratch, incorporating gold kitchen taps into your design is an excellent way to elevate your kitchen's overall look and feel.

This guide will help you choose the right gold kitchen taps for your kitchen and provide tips for keeping them looking their best.

LINUS-S Satin Gold

Matching your gold taps to your kitchen

When choosing gold kitchen taps, it is essential to consider the style of your kitchen and its other metal finishes, such as your sink, light fixtures, and cabinets, and select a kitchen tap that complements these elements.

Choose taps with a classic design in a warm, yellow-gold finish for a traditional kitchen. For example, our VICUS range offers a timeless style with modern functionality. In polished gold and with a choice of the twin lever, the bridge twin lever, and the single lever mixer taps, they add a touch of glamour to any kitchen.

For a more modern kitchen, opt for brushed gold kitchen taps for a subtle, soft finish. Choose clean lines, such as those in our popular satin gold LINUS and LINUS-S mixer taps, to complete that minimalist, contemporary look.

Selecting the design of your taps

There are several options when choosing the design of your gold kitchen taps. Some popular styles include single lever taps and bridge twin lever taps.

Single lever taps are the most common, offering easy and convenient control over the water temperature and flow. Meanwhile, bridge twin lever taps are a great option if you have a traditional or country-style kitchen, as they feature two separate handles for the hot and cold water.

Measuring function

Kitchen taps special functions

Today's kitchen taps can come with various special functions that make using your kitchen sink and accessing water much more convenient.

For example, your gold kitchen taps can include a pull-out spray hose to extend your work area and make rinsing your dishes and cleaning your vegetables effortless. Or a high spout could be helpful, enabling you to wash oversized items or fill buckets easily.

You can also have 4-in-1 gold kitchen taps, such as our drink.hot EVOL-S Pro mixer tap, which provides cold, warm and filtered cold and boiling water from a single mixer tap. These also offer an intuitive measuring function and touch control for improved efficiency.

Taking care of your gold kitchen taps

If you want to keep your gold kitchen taps looking their best, take a look at our simple tips for maintaining them properly:

  • Dry your taps after use: Use a microfibre cloth to dry water drops and avoid leaving any limescale behind.
  • Clean with care: Use a soft cloth and mild or natural cleaning solution to regularly wipe down your taps, avoiding harsh or acidic chemicals that may deteriorate your taps' finish.
  • Remember the aerator: Clean the nozzle on the outlet of the faucet (the aerator) regularly to remove limescale deposits.

Gold kitchen taps can add elegance to any kitchen. Take time to consider how their design and finish will work with your kitchen style and what functionality you require, and they will be a feature you will enjoy using for years to come.
