    New! Filter taps from Brita

    by  • January 18, 2012 • taps, • Kitchen Sinks & Taps • 0 Comments

    If you’ve ever had a filtered water jug, you’ll know how convenient it is to have chilled, filtered water on demand. But finding somewhere in the fridge for it can be a challenge.

    Your other option is a water filter tap – one that provides normal water but also filtered at the twist of a lever.

    Brita, the people that brought you those still incredibly handy jugs, have brought out a new range of taps that are as attractive as standard taps but with the added bonus of filtered water. The filters are easy to change and recyclable. Here are some of my favourite designs:

    Struana tap in chrome by Brita

    Perfect for a modern kitchen, Struana has sleek, angled side levers that give it a designer look and would equally be at home on an island.

    Ceto tap in a brushed finish

    Longer levers and a fuss-free brushed look enables the Ceto model to sit happily alongside more classic kitchens.

    Kelda tap in chrome by Brita

    Traditional without being fussy, I love the white levers twinned with the chrome of this elegant Kelda tap. Price from £199 for all the taps.

    Love the look but not ready for a new kitchen yet? You can replace your existing tap with one of these right now.

    Why we love this new kitchen tap

    It’s not often we pick taps as things we love on the blog but I thought this latest offering from Carron Phoenix deserved your attention. And here’s why.

    Trying to get your other half interested in kitchens is often a struggle. Beyond wine coolers and coffee machines, which are the gadgets that usually capture their attention, most men don’t have a lot of enthusiasm for colour schemes and pretty fabrics.

    So, when I saw this Bali tap, I knew instantly how I could ‘sell’ it to my husband.

    Carron Phoenix’s stylish new Bali tap

    Its sleek levers remind me of the paddle gears in a Ferrari (not my usual ride but I’ve seen pictures). On top of that, it’s slightly angular for a modern look but not over-the-top boxy. In much the same way as I promoted my vacuum as sounding like a jet engine, it’s a done deal.
