How to choose kitchen taps: 5 designs for 5 styles

¿Qué se debe tener en cuenta a la hora de seleccionar la grifería de cocina perfecta? Te proponemos cinco modelos.

You are going to design your new kitchen. Or, on the contrary, you are going to refurbish your current kitchen. To find oneself between one of these two cases is to consider, inevitably, what equipment and kitchen taps will be chosen. But, what should be taken into account when selecting the perfect taps?


1. Functionality. The culinary experimentation requires practical kitchen taps and comfort in relation to their handling. Therefore, the chosen design should guarantee aspects such as being able to move better while cooking, improving hygiene for the kitchen equipment, as well as washing food or making the opening of the taps easier.

2. The quality of the materials. Durability is something highly valued by users. If you invest in high-design kitchen taps, the requirements are: a durable piece that is resistant to use, taps that stand the test of time, along with easy maintenance.

3. Design. Taps are the main element in the kitchen, a piece that usually catches the eye, although a priori it does not seem so. They are usually located in a privileged place, near the workspace. Therefore, tap design is crucial and they must be chosen conscientiously: do they fit the kitchen style? Do they meet the expectations of breaking with the design by achieving an eclectic style?

In Noken, we respond with our kitchen taps to all these aspects, and we do so with cutting-edge and high-quality pieces that delight the space and adapt perfectly to everyday use. In fact, all Noken kitchen taps are protected with 'Maximum Chrome' and they are subjected to periodical controls and certifications.

However, as we know that each design is for a kitchen, we combine numerous designs in our product catalogue, always with the maximum guarantee in materials and manufacturing processes provided by the PORCELANOSA Grupo. Are you clear about the kitchen style of your dreams? Our proposition:

Five taps for five kitchens

Bridge Slim offers a finer and more stylised design, in Finish Studio chrome, copper and titanium finishes. We're committed to revolutionising the functional aesthetic in the kitchen, with striking pieces that will add character to your kitchen space.

Tips when opting for the best taps for your kitchen

Apart from the design, we suggest taking into account a series of tips that favour opting for the most practical taps for your kitchen:

1. The high-spout taps are very useful for bulky containers, opt for them for greater comfort on a day-to-day basis.

2. The flexible spout and a greater water flow jet favour the cleaning and filling of the containers.

3. If you have an island or a double bowl kitchen sink, opt for a 170º swivel spout with a security stop that avoid overflows like those offered by Noken. The flexible hand shower will also help.
