Pronteau by Abode – for every style of kitchen

Paul Illingworth, design manager at Abode says, “Recognised as a must-have kitchen appliance, the hot tap is reportedly fitted in 40% of new kitchens, fast becoming the go-to kitchen assistant when brewing hot drinks, and preparing and cooking food. As part of today’s home-centred lifestyle, we are finding that homeowners are keen to personalise every room. Given both the rich variety of housing stock in the UK and how varied personal tastes can be, the market needs to ensure that this in-demand small appliance can be a seamless part of every architectural setting as the days of ‘one shape and size fits all’ are officially over!”

Whatever your preferred kitchen style, there is a Pronteau tap which will deliver water the way you want it, as well as complementing your furniture, appliances and worktops Breaking away from generic forms and colours to explore the latest brassware options is key to choosing a hot tap which will enhance your unique interior style as well making your life easier.


Eclectic, farmhouse and Shaker-style kitchens remain popular style trends and in 2023, new traditional interior spaces are focussing on a thoughtful presentation of high performance taps this year. Defining characteristics like ceramic lever handles, period style spout collars, and classic finishes are now a unique feature of the traditionally styled steaming hot water tap, able to convene modern lifestyles yet remain 100% on theme.

Ideal for homeowners who want classic style with contemporary convenience, ProTrad is available in 3 IN 1 and 4 IN 1 models, and three high fashion finishes – Antique Brass, Chrome and Brushed Nickel. Quintessentially classic by design, ProTrad is designed to sit perfectly in a traditionally styled kitchen scheme and is inspired by the bestselling Astbury and Ludlow collections also by Abode. It is supplied with a PROBOIL.2x under sink boiler and is priced from £949-£1049.

If you have a young family, take advantage of the added safety benefit of the classically styled Province HotKey®. Part of the Pronteau HotKey® 4 IN 1 Collection, patented sensor technology makes this tap one of the safest ways to dispense steaming hot water, as without the HotKey® fob in range, the tap will only perform as an ordinary 3-way mixer tap. Prices start from £1249.


The kitchens of the future will major on ergonomic designs, which are deluxe, efficient and practical, and trends are reflecting the best of Nordic inspired design with clean lines and trustworthy functionality. Handleless cabinetry, integrated appliances and monolithic kitchen islands contribute to this cool, calm and collected look and have fast become design icons in the contemporary kitchen.

Get the contemporary look in your kitchen with the Profile HotKey® and Project HotKey® 4 IN 1 models, available in both monobloc and 3-part options for even greater flexibility. Profile HotKey® (pictured top) is a robust swan design in Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Matt Black and Antique Brass. Project HotKey® is a quad-style tap available in Chrome, Brushed Nickel, Matt Black and Brushed Brass. Each tap in the range is supplied with the ultra-compact Proboil.4E with large 4L capacity, which delivers up to 100 cups per hour! Pronteau HotKey® is also great for anyone with dexterity difficulties or conditions such as arthritis, so users can avoid pushing down, turning and sliding the handle to trigger the water flow. Prices range from £1149-£1349.

Pronteau by Abode Industria


Incorporating the look and feel of the professional kitchen has prompted a greater appetite for industrial-style interiors where mixed materials are met with more urban design qualities in the kitchen space. Upcycled raw elements and designer details are taking this type of design to the next level and knurling has become a popular technique for introducing texture into an industrial style scheme.

Industria 3 IN 1 instant hot water taps (pictured left) capture this trend perfectly, designed with two diamond knurled lever handles and matching spout collar to provide a direct contrast between the smooth body of the tap and functional elements. The deep knurling also helps to provide extra grip if your hands are wet and soapy, and the insulated 180° swivel spout ensures maximum flexibility for the busy family kitchen or keen cook. Industria offers a contemporary monobloc design and is available in Brushed Nickel and a combination Matt Black & Antique Brass finish. It is supplied with a PROBOIL.2x boiler and is priced from £749-£799.

So, whether you’re a traditionalist at heart, love the evolving nature of contemporary design, or prefer more industrial-style schemes, Pronteau has a design that’s right for you and your kitchen.
