I won’t lie to you. When it came to selecting a tap for our laundry sink, I was overwhelmed with the amount of options on the market. Spoilt for choice some might think? Dazed and confused others might be? I think I landed somewhere in between.
Did I want a standard set of taps and a spout, a goose neck spout with a mixer, a straight edge spout with taps, a standard mixer, a tall mixer, a tall mixer with a fully flexible retractable pull-out hose, swivel or no swivel…? I think you get the picture.
I love my magazines. Reading about all the latest tips and trends in house design and styling. I’d noticed a couple of taps in one particular feature by a brand that I’d heard of before, Methven. I thought this was as good as any place to start to do my research. As it turns out, it was the perfect place.
After thinking about how I use the laundry space and what’s important to me, I knew I wanted a laundry sink mixer that swiveled. I just felt that there was more flexibility with this option rather than having a spout that’s fixed. Also, I like the ease of using a mixer rather than turning two taps on. Minor I know but, more time spent in the laundry means less time doing more appealing things.
Keeping these things in mind, I was drawn to the Methven Waipori Swivel Sink Mixer (product code: 01-8222). It ticked all the boxes for me.
As the product is described, “its curved edges soften the geometric styling making it a modern and attractive alternative to square styles.” Which translated beautifully to me as it’s not too feminine, not too masculine and just the perfect balance of style. What’s more, as the name indicates, the tap conveniently swivels so tick, tick, tick. I was also very impressed with the price point given such a reputable brand.
Having used the Methven Waipori Swivel Sink Mixer for over a year now, I'm still very happy with my choice. I think if ever I needed a new laundry mixer, I would very much keep the Methven brand in mind.
The only other inclusion I would look for if purchasing a new laundry sink mixer, is perhaps one that did have a retractable pull-out hose. This is only because we recently adopted a dog and come bath time in winter, having that hose would be more convenient than an ice-cream bucket!
