Deck Mounted Tap Levers

Im installing a 4 hole deck mounted tap system and have put the tap with the red sticker on its base on the left hand side as per convention. However, the tap levers will only turn forwards if i point them inwards towards the spout. (Picture 1). All the brochures showing this type of tap show them pointing outwards away from the spout which affords more room to get hold of them and looks better (Picture 2). Can I just swap the taps round so they look right and send hot water to the left hand tap which will has the blue sticker on its underneath? - Or are the ceramic discs/valves different for each tap? Regards Steve
