What are the Types of Pillar Taps?

Have you ever stood in the aisle of a hardware store, bewildered by the variety of taps before you? Or perhaps, while renovating your bathroom or kitchen, you were puzzled over which pillar tap to choose. Why are there so many types? Do they serve different purposes? Or is it all just about the aesthetics?

Pillar taps are a staple in residential and commercial plumbing systems, offering a mix of functionality and design that caters to various preferences and needs. These taps stand independently, often in pairs, for hot and cold water supply, making them popular for sinks and basins. But with the array of options available, making the right choice can seem daunting.

What makes Pillar Taps unique?

Pillar taps operate on a simple mechanism, each controlling either hot or cold water. This traditional setup allows for precise temperature control, a feature much appreciated in both household and industrial settings. But what sets pillar taps apart is their versatility in design and application.

How do material and design affect your choice?

A pillar’s material and design dictate its appearance, durability, and suitability for specific environments. Brass, stainless steel, and bronze are popular choices, each offering unique benefits. For instance, brass taps are known for their corrosion resistance, making them ideal for hard water areas.

Why consider Plumberstar for your Pillar Taps?

Choosing the proper manufacturer for pillar taps is as crucial as selecting the tap itself. Plumberstar, with its integrated production line and professional quality products, stands out as a reliable choice. Specializing in lead-free brass/bronze castings and stainless steel linear drains, Plumberstar ensures that each product meets the highest standards of quality and customization.

What Types of Pillar Taps are Available?

Pillar taps come in various types, each designed to meet specific needs and aesthetic preferences:

  1. Traditional Pillar Taps: Featuring classic designs, these taps fit perfectly in homes or establishments with a vintage or rustic theme.
  2. Modern Pillar Taps: With sleek lines and contemporary designs, these taps are suited for modern bathrooms and kitchens.
  3. Swivel Spout Pillar Taps: These taps offer added flexibility, making them ideal for sinks that require a more comprehensive range of motion.
  4. Eco-friendly Pillar Taps: These taps are designed to conserve water and are perfect for environmentally conscious consumers.

Which Pillar Tap is Right for You?

When choosing a pillar tap, consider the style of your space, the water pressure system, and the tap’s material. Whether you prefer a traditional look or a modern aesthetic, there’s a pillar tap designed to meet your needs.

Understanding Pillar Tap Sizes

When it comes to pillar taps, size does matter. The tap size can significantly affect both its functionality and fit with your sink or basin. Typically, pillar taps are available in various sizes, from compact designs for small hand basins to more substantial sizes perfect for kitchen sinks. The tap’s height usually determines the size, the spout’s reach, and the base’s dimensions.

For instance, a standard size for bathroom sinks might have a spout reach of approximately 100mm, while kitchen taps might extend to DN15, DN20, and DN25 to 150mm or more to accommodate extra space for dishwashing and other activities. Measuring the area where your tap will be installed is essential to ensure a perfect fit.

Deciphering Surface Finishes

The surface finish of a pillar tap not only contributes to its aesthetic appeal but also plays a crucial role in its durability and ease of maintenance. Common finishes include:

  • Chrome: Shiny and reflective, chrome offers a sleek look that complements modern interiors. It’s also easy to clean and resistant to tarnishing.
  • Brushed Nickel: This finish provides a softer, matte look. It’s less prone to showing fingerprints and water spots, making it a practical choice for busy areas.
  • Oil-Rubbed Bronze: Offering an antique vibe, this finish adds warmth and character to traditional spaces. It’s relatively durable but may require more upkeep than chrome or nickel.
  • Matte Black: Bold and contemporary, matte black finishes have become increasingly popular. They are great for creating a statement but may require specific cleaning products to maintain their look.

Choosing the right finish involves considering your space’s overall style and how much time you’re willing to dedicate to tap maintenance.

Selecting the Right Manufacturer

Choosing a manufacturer for your pillar taps is critical. Here’s what to consider:

  • Quality and Durability: Look for manufacturers with a strong reputation for producing high-quality, durable products. Plumberstar, for example, specializes in lead-free brass/bronze castings and stainless steel linear drains, ensuring top-notch durability.
  • Customization Capability: If you have specific design requirements, choosing a manufacturer that offers customization services is beneficial. This allows you to get the exact size, design, and finish you want.
  • Certifications: Manufacturers with ISO 9001 certification, like Plumberstar, have met international standards for quality management, ensuring reliability and consistent product quality.
  • Customer Reviews: Check customer reviews and testimonials to gauge the manufacturer’s reliability, customer service quality, and product satisfaction.


Selecting the right pillar tap involves balancing aesthetics, functionality, and quality. With Plumberstar‘s commitment to excellence and customization, finding the perfect pillar tap for your project is easier than ever. Dive into the world of pillar taps and elevate your space today.
