How to choose the perfect laundry tap

If you're on the search for the perfect laundry tap, read our helpful guide below to understand the essential features you should look out for to create the ideal trifecta of functionality, practicalty and design!


3 Features to Consider:

1.  Consider your space:  Are there any potential obstructions that will interfere with tapware functionality?

2. What style and size tap do you need: Will a wall mounted set be best or does a pull out tap take your fancy? Pull out tapware in the laundry can come in handy for washing pets or rinsing larger items.

3. How will your laundry design fit in with your home:  Much like designing a new bathroom or kitchen, the laundry space could have a style of its own or be a continuation of the rest of your home. So, are you wanting ultra modern and sleek or something a little more traditional and classic?

Choose a Tap Mounting Style!

Where you mount your taps is the first factor to consider before choosing a tap design. The two tap mount styles include;

Wall mounted taps: Are taps that are off or in the wall, offer more bench space and create a more streamlined look.

Hob mounted taps: Are taps that are mounted on the benchtop or on the sink, can allow more flexibility with retractable options available.

Remember to check heights and measurements of any overhead storage or cupboards that may interfere with certain tap styles.

3 Piece Tapware…

Going for that classic, clean style or something a little more rustic and farmhouse? A traditional three piece tap will be the perfect option to achieve this look. A three piece tap set includes a separate spout with two handles either side, creating a classic look that is especially typical of provincial or farmhouse style homes. 3 piece tapware sets come in a variety of finishes and styles. Opt for styles similar to the Caroma Coolibah Classic Cross Laundry Tap Set for a clean and minimalistic look, or the Fienza Lillian Shepherds Crook Basin Set to perfect that country style aesthetic.

Modern Tapware…

Wanting to pull out all the stops? A mixer tap will do just the trick to keep your laundry looking fresh and modern without compromising on performance. Unlike more traditional styles, a mixer tap utilises one lever for both hot and cold flows. Mixer taps easily control temperature and allow access to additional functionality with retractable and dual spray options available. Similar to traditional tapware, this modern style can be ordered in a number styles and finishes from brands such as Caroma, Greens and Phoenix.

No matter if you’ve chosen a three piece, wall mounted set or a hob mounted mixer tap, your choice of colour and finish is not limited.


Chrome Tapware…

A classic look! Suitable for nearly any style of laundry, chrome tapware adds a touch of timelessness to a space, while it elevates and completes a modern/contemporary vibe. This versatile finish is available in a number of styles and fits suited to your laundry space.  


Black Tapware…

The height of tapware fashion. Black tapware is here to stay with its bold and sleek look. The stark contrast elevates a space and creates a modern look that will never date. Love the look in your bathroom?

Champagne Tapware…

Adding a touch of class and chicness to any space, champagne tapware is the perfect finish sure to impress.
