If you’re planning to refurbish your kitchen, don’t forget to set aside some of your budget for new kitchen taps. While you may think that all taps are equal, you’ll soon find that if you spend money on cheap taps you’ll have to replace them far sooner than your next kitchen refurbishment.
That’s why we always advise that when you’re looking to buy kitchen taps in Melbourne, you should invest in the best quality tap your budget will allow. Not only will a quality tap make your refurbishment look more impressive, but it will stand the test of time, no matter how many times you use it.
After all, the kitchen tap is the most used tap in your home. Just think about all the times you turn it on to wash a piece of fruit, to draw water for washing up, to fill your kettle, to water the plants or to get a drink of water. As you can see, you need a robust tap that can cope with all the use that it will get, and that won’t seize up when you need it most.

The importance of quality when it comes to kitchen sink taps is one of those often overlooked things. If people knew what a big difference quality makes, they would never overlook it, but unfortunately, they usually make the discovery when something has already gone wrong.
If something goes wrong with a tap, that something will often prove to be very costly. At the very least, any repair or replacement is likely to involve time and expense, and that's when there's no water damage.
This is where the investment in quality makes a really big difference. The price may be a little more, but compared to something that has been poorly manufactured, a quality kitchen sink tap is likely to save you much more in the long run, and that's more of an issue with taps than with most other kinds of things you might purchase.
Quality products are made with skill and care. The materials are usually better, too. Many of the cheapest bathroom fittings are made from a horrifically cheap alloy that is extremely brittle and breaks easily. This is a favoured material for many Chinese manufacturers because it allows them to rapidly cast products that look like solid metal while actually being made from a substance that is easily shattered and has almost no strength. It's also incredibly cheap, which lets the manufacturer set the price very low.
Those on limited budgets could easily be tempted by these low-quality products, but they should definitely be avoided because they just break too easily. Also, if they don't break completely, they may end up contaminating the water with tiny alloy particles. Some of these alloys can be made with metals that have toxicity potential, so it makes this concern more serious.
Quality products are made with real metal or real ceramics. There are no tricks used just to create a metallic look or ceramic look. The manufacturers care about creating a quality product, so they make sure the interior components are precision engineered for consistent, reliable performance. The quality of the manufacturing also helps ensure the product will be easy to install. These products are then backed by rock solid warranties that can be trusted to keep you covered long after the product has been installed.
We take taps seriously because kitchen sink taps are important. They are the guardians that let water into our homes when we want it and keep water out at all other times. Choose a product that can be depended on to do the job properly.
