To think we've made a mistake and return this tap

I think it may be too big and in your face. Does it?

Also can I return it as it's been fitted? Not really used it other than to check it works.

I love it. I don’t think you can return it after fitting unless it was faulty.
I am sure you will get used to it, might seem in your face if your old one was small.

No I don't think you can return it I think it looks fine though

Name it and talk to it, then you'll never want to get rid of it.

I think it looks like a Georgio

Looks o.k.!

Looks good and very practical

Since taking the photo it seems to be leaning forward quite noticably. I think it may be too heavy for my sink. Sink also just been fitted.

If you're not happy with it get it returned now and explain your concerns

Is your sink deep enough for the splash it will make? It looks like a catering type one and the sinks are usually a bit deeper.

NotAgainYoda Mon 30-Oct-17 06:14:05

I see what you mean

That Industrial style tap was invented for a much bigger (restaurant) sink, so it does look a bit out of place

But if it's practical and doesn't send water all over the kitchen then I don't think you'll notice it after a while

I think it was designed for a bigger sink too. A deeper one or at least a double sink.

But I don't think you can return either and it looks fine

I love the tap but it doesn’t go with the sink. The sink doesn’t do the tap justice if that makes any sense grin

I agree Durham. Not wishing to be rude, but that looks like the cheapest sink in the shop, that you would expect to be accompanied by a basic mixer tap.

But I don't know if it can be returned. Depends on the shop - somewhere big like Screwfix, Ikea or B&Q are often more relaxed about these things than small places.

I have that very tap and also thought it looked giant when it first was fitted. However, I don’t notice it now and it’s hugely useful! Blasting dishes with it is ace, and it means that the sink is always clean because you just squirt that at it and it blasts any bits away.

fucksakefay Mon 30-Oct-17 06:23:08

On a different point, I love your tiles

Worriedobsessive Mon 30-Oct-17 06:23:36

TBH I’d change the sink and keep the tap. The sink looks far lower quality than the tap.

NotAgainYoda Mon 30-Oct-17 06:24:04

Reminds me of my job at McDonald's as a teenager. Massive sinks though. Dangerously boiling water got stuff clean in moments

flissfloss65 Mon 30-Oct-17 06:29:13

Try and take the sink back, it looks way to small and not deep enough for the tap.

Goldenbug Mon 30-Oct-17 06:32:01

Looks very ugly industrial. You could ask to exchange it but I don't think the company will have too, so don't faucet.

CatsRidingRollercoasters Mon 30-Oct-17 06:34:16

I have that tap and I love it! It's so useful how it bends.
