5 Great Black Kitchen Sink Mixers

Black Kitchen Sink Mixers

The emergence of colour tapware has created huge opportunities in Kitchen and Bathroom design. Coordinating benchtops, appliances and tapware is now a designers dream. Black tapware has been a major contributor to bold imaginative kitchens. True black taps have been around a while now but they are definitely here to stay. They match similar colours in kitchen appliances now and remain a stunning contrasting colour that creates a modern chic look. Black remains the New Black and will for a long time.

Maintaining black tapware is pretty simple. Only use soapy water and a soft cloth and the finish will last for years. If you use chemicals or scouring materials you run the risk of damaging the finish.

MYTAP have selected 5 of our favourite Black Kitchen Sink Mixers from our stocked brands. Any one of these will be a great purchase replacing your old mixer or complimenting your new Kitchen design.

All of our selections are single lever mixers so you can control the temperature and flow with one hand.

Things to consider in choosing Black Kitchen Sink Mixers

 

1.Functionality and Compatibility 

The truth is, no matter how attractive black kitchen sink mixers appear, if they don’t fulfil your requirements, then they are probably not the right tap for you. No matter how tempting it might be to get caught up in the style and look, it is vital to consider functionality and compatibility.

If you are building a new kitchen, you will have the luxury of choosing whatever taps you like. Compatibility is not an issue as you have total control over the plumbing.

When renovating or simply updating your old tap, however, you’ll need to make sure the tap matches your existing kitchen plumbing and measurements. How many holes have already been drilled into your sink or countertop? Are you looking for something tall above your basin or is it wall-mounted? Does it need to be in the middle, or on the side?

You should also choose the tap that matches your lifestyle and needs. A kitchen tap with a wide range of movement and flexibility, a pull out spray, is probably the best solution for someone who does a lot of cooking, rinsing and veggie washing. A simple pillar mixer is the budget solution without any frills.

2.What’s the difference between a single lever mixer and a 3 piece set?

Mixers as the name implies, combine both hot and cold water flow in a single spout. A single lever mixer controls both the flow of water and the temperature – vertical movement regulates water flow and horizontal movements control temperature.

Three-piece sets come with one tap or lever for cold water and another for hot water. The temperature and flow is controlled separately by each individual tap.

3.Pull Out Spray Taps

Pull out taps have an extractable flexible hose that allows you to direct the water spray where you need it. This can be really helpful when washing large pots and pans, washing vegetables or cleaning the sink. Some models have the ability to control the spray effect and strength making it easier to remove stubborn deposits from plates, pots etc.

4.Ceramic Discs

The latest ceramic disc technology replaces the traditional washer and feed pipe. Water flow is controlled by the rotated positions of 2 ceramic discs. When the discs align properly the water will flow. They are more durable and promote water conservation. They are also easier to operate as the flow can be controlled in as little as a “quarter turn”.

5.WELS efficiency rating

The WELS rating system is an Australian Government initiative to measure the efficiency of plumbing fixtures. It provides a star rating based on the water flow per minute of the fixture. The more stars the more efficient the the fixture is. This not only saves water consumption but also can save the user money on water usage and energy consumption too.

6. Colour

Black Kitchen Sink Mixers are a strong bold statement and can look stunning in the right design concept. They will go with most colour schemes but if remaining tapware in the same space or in the rest of the home is of a different colour it can look a bit out of place – too bold a statement. If that is the case then models are available in other colours. You can always match the Black Kitchen Sink Mixers with other black products in our catalogue
