Our Top Tapware Picks

Choosing the right tapware for your kitchen or bathroom project should be a well thought out decision. The range on offer is extensive and there is a huge difference in price and quality.

At Retreat Design, we are proud suppliers of European brands such as Gessi, Zucchetti, Hansgrohe, Armando Vicario and KWC to name a few. In our experience, we believe paying that little bit more for a top quality product will ensure your tapware is designed to last.


  • Choose quality tapware that will stand the test of time

  • Avoid gimmicky trends and finishes which will date quickly

  • Know where your tapware is manufactured and what the warranty is

  • Consider a filtered hot/cold water tap for the kitchen

  • If your opting for a minimal bathroom design, why not choose a feature tap

  • Choose finishes that are easy to clean and maintain

  • Opt for ‘continuity’ throughout your house so there is a design story
