Quick question (with pictures) how would you place this tap at an angle or straight. We’re fitting tomorrow!

Sorry forgot my question mark!

I think angled looks better.

So do I my husband (who is also my plumber) needs convincing

Myself and partner think angled.

Straight then angle the spout. The angled turny bits would drive me mad.

Check that the tap levers can fully open if it is angled. Mine annoyingly hits the granite upstand and wont therefore turn on fully which is annoying!

Straight blush

Oh and I prefer straight.

Straight. More classic.

Straight definitely

We have same sink and similar tap - straight. It'll be annoying having to reach slightly further for that further back tap.

Straight. It looks smarter somehow. Nice sink.

Straight for me.

Thank you. Goodness I'm hopeless with decisions. I'm away overnight so am now demanding more photos from DH to make my mind up.

Could you ask for a photo of the tap straight on but the spout turned towards main sink - that might make the straight option look better (at the moment straight on looks weird to me).

randomthoughts Mon 13-Nov-17 22:05:57

Here’s a straight with twisted spout one...

Flamingale Mon 13-Nov-17 22:35:57

Straight looks best.

HouseworkIsAPain Mon 13-Nov-17 22:36:26

That looks good. I thought angled looked better than straight initially, but this looks ok. I think angled will make tap handles hard to use.

I’ve just gone down to check my sink and tap - I have straight with the spout angled over main sink just like your last pic. And this is from a woman who thought that your straight pic looked weird at first grin

Definitely angled. Straight looks odd

Think I'll go for straight with twisted spout.

Another vote for straight.
