Although tapware may be one of the smallest things in your kitchen, don't forget its importance. First think about functionality - especially if you will have two sinks side by side.

Traditional kitchens should look for rounder, more traditional styled taps.
A rangehood needs to match the width of the cooktop below or larger, to pick up steam and odours from cooking. The most common sizes are 60cm and 90cm. Before selecting a hood you need to determine whether the exhaust will be vented to the outdoors. In this case, you will need a ducting kit. If you can’t vent the steam, you need a recirculating model. These filter and clean the air before recirculating it back into the kitchen.
Key considerations when purchasing a rangehood are the noise level and the extraction power. Fully concealed in-built hoods are known as power packs that are integrated as part of the décor for a modern streamlined look. Stainless steel is the most popular finish for rangehoods today
