Fitting a Kitchen Tap or Faucet



Fitting a Kitchen Faucet (or Tap)

Fitting a new faucet to your sink in the kitchen is a lot easier than you may think. As a DIY excersize it’s an project that almost anyone can do. With a little knowledge and advice the job becomes quite easy for the average DIY enthusiast, and we’ve included all this knowledge in the video.

When choosing your faucet have a good look at what’s available in the stores. It’ll save some money to compare pricing from store to store. There are many great looking faucets that won’t cost an arm and a leg, but of course it’s always a good idea to buy quality. The faucet will be with you for many years, so don’t go for the cheapest model unless you’ve assured yourself that it’s well made and will last for at least ten years without rusting or giving other trouble.

Choose a style that you like and that will fit in with the look of your kitchen. Colour and size are two important factors when making your choice. If you select a large faucet and the basin in your kitchen is tiny, the mismatch might be glaringly obvious.

Take your time when doing the installation, there’s nothing that ensures a better finish than spending a little time along the way to think about the next step and look over what you’ve done.
