“Stepping away from the demanding world of events,
it was time to tap into something new.”
A shift in décor
Life gets busy with two boys. Travelling 130km per day as the Owner of an Events and Décor Hire Company, on top of the demands of the industry is no easy task. In 2016, after eight years serving my business I knew it was time for a change.
I sold my Events Business with the best intentions to be a Stay-at-home Mom. After six months I started to get itchy. I love working and have no great interest in hobby-making. I decided an online business with little to no overheads, and flexibility to be present for my busy boys was my next move.
During this time I started an interior project at home, renovating the guest bathroom. Interior Design and decorating is something I have always been passionate about. Amped and excited by all the beautiful prospects and my ideas, I was quickly introduced to a world of frustration. There is nothing worse than not being able to find what you are looking for, and when you do, having to wait a long time to get it. I couldn’t find the taps and accessories that I wanted, and figured I couldn’t be the only one.
Whilst doing some research and sourcing myself, I soon realized that a new business idea had struck, one far beyond only my own home! In early 2017 Trendy Taps was born. I sought through different suppliers and stock, holding on to only the very best.
By September 2017 after sourcing and buying small batches of stock, a curated collection of premium quality bathroom and kitchen taps and accessories were united, and ready to be launched online.
With a passion for service delivery, the Trendy Taps approach is different. All catalogue items are kept in stock, which means no waiting periods on orders, and special control over the quality and pricing of all products. The biggest perk is the free nationwide shipping, regardless of the order value. All products comply with ISO9001 quality standards and come with a five-year guarantee. Any fault or defect with the product will result in a complete replacement.
Being an online store, I ensure to always keep the one-on-one connection with customers. The response to the products is overwhelming, and most of the buyers become repeat customers.
This is the best job in the world! It is most rewarding to experience the excitement and beauty that our products bring into homes.
I really do believe that a home can make you happy, even if only a tap at a time. Changing only one small item, like a new basin mixer can transform a room completely!
With this year being such an uncertain one, I have spent the downtime sourcing products to introduce new lines to the collection. I am so excited for the launch of our new hand-painted basins and range of extractor covers!
