Proud of its progressive design and product quality: Abode to showcase 2016 range of taps
In the 14 years since Abode made its first entry into the UK market, it has become renowned for its progressive design styles at all budget levels. The company's focus on innovative kitchen sinks and taps has been recognised many times - with a cabinet full of industry awards which reflects Abode's ethos towards investment in design and product quality.
Kitchen taps have changed dramatically over the past few years and there is now an even wider range from which to choose. At this year's KBB, (Stand I91) Abode is launching 22 new styles of taps which - if previous collections are anything to go by - are going to be very well received.
There has also been a growth in statement mixers, ranges of professional and semi-professional design-led taps which have become popular in modern homes and kitchens. These taps are cleverly styled with good looks and with the hidden benefit of pull-down spray functionality, working silently and invisibly together to create a practical multi-use mixertap. Abode has grasped this theme for its 2016 products, bringing new levels of flexibility and functionality to its designs.
There are five new professional and semi-professional taps being launched, including the Virtue range with black Teflon coated spouts and chrome/brushed nickel bodies, which will co-ordinate with most modern kitchen appliances.
Pull out spray taps have always been popular in modern kitchens as they are especially practical in food preparation - and with Abode's extra long pull out hoses, the spray can reach into the corners of most sinks. To enhance the company's tap portfolio, a further seven new models are being launched. These are available in a range of durable finishes.
A further 10 new contemporary taps, including the new Althia, Spruce and Mercury ranges, feature both single lever and monobloc models and make up the full complement of Abode's exciting new kitchen tap ranges for 2016.
All new taps will be available, from stock, from April.
