The kitchen faucet is an extremely busy part of your home. Your faucet has been used more than many other parts of your house, from washing hands to scrubbing vegetables to cleaning up dishes and so much more. With such an overwhelming workload, redesigning your kitchen faucet must work in the right way for you. And don’t forget-it will look very good too! Think about those features when selecting your home’s ideal kitchen faucet.
Single lever faucets are perfect to monitor both the temperature and the volume of water. Quickly turning on or off the water is a breeze, and you can change the flow and temperature to suit your current needs. They’re also aiming for a more improved kitchen look. Two-handled faucets give a classic look and make the water temperature and water flow easy to control. Hands-free faucets provide exceptional convenience, particularly when your hands are covered with flour or chicken grease and you don’t want the mess to spread.
A Spray Features
A spray feature on your faucet is beneficial for more than we can describe here. It lets you decide where you want water in your tub, helping you to reach hard-to-reach places, push the faucet for a little guy who can’t quite reach to wash hands, fill a bowl, and so much more. Most spray features have two controls — one provides either a steady jet or a spray. It is helpful when you turn on the kitchen sink between needs. As part of the faucet, you can have a spray option or get one added on the faucet side. If the spray feature is part of the faucet, you can choose from an option to pull out, coil, or pull down.
You can let your faucet make a statement, and display your kitchen’s style confidently. The right style will improve the space’s whole look. Choose a finish that fits perfectly in your kitchen with other appliances, features, and hardware. Fortunately, stainless steel, polished chrome, polished nickel, wrought iron, and more are several options. Got a traditional kitchen? Look modern? Farmhouse? Make sure you select a theme that ties in with the rest of your kitchen.
It doesn’t matter how much you love a certain look if it doesn’t match inside the space of your kitchen. Make sure that you first calculate window sills or kitchen cabinets to ensure that the height of your chosen faucet does not conflict with what already exists.
The Nuts and Bolts
Not every faucet will fit in with any sink. You need to see how many holes in your counter-top you already have. You can add a faucet, an accompanying spray tool, and even a soap dispenser if you have three holes. Want to go from three holes to a faucet with one handle? The extra holes are hidden by a deck at the base of the faucet, thus giving you a seamless look. You’ll have to pick a faucet with a spout that nearly matches the middle of your sink. If the faucet just reaches into your shower, it’s not going to do you much good.
Some Extra Features
Consider installing a filtration faucet next to your sink to give you a convenient place for clean, filtered drinking water. Or how about a faucet above the stove with a pot filler? To keep extra things off your shelves, lotion, or soap dispensers? Make sure you take some time to explore additional features that can save time, add convenience, or make your kitchen time more enjoyable.
