If you plan to remodel your kitchen, paying attention to the kitchen faucet is essential. It is one of the most frequently used fixtures in the house and serves a vital function. You use it to wash your hands, rinse dishes, and clean cooking equipment that cannot enter the dishwasher. Each kitchen faucet style has unique advantages, so choosing one that suits your kitchen’s needs is essential. Here are some of the most popular kitchen faucet styles to consider.
Pull Out Faucets
If you have limited deck space around your kitchen sink, pull-out faucets are the perfect choice. They feature an integrated adjustable pull-out sprayer, eliminating the need to drill another hole for a side spray. With a pull-out faucet, you can quickly fill large pots and pans from the countertop without worrying about the size of your sink. Additionally, if you have a single wide sink or multiple bowls, the pull-out feature will enable you to reach every corner of the sink.
Pull Down Faucets
Pull-down faucets are a popular and unique high-arc style that can make any kitchen look majestic, especially if you want a professional kitchen design. If your kitchen sink is large, this style of faucet may be more appropriate in size. However, be careful of height restrictions if you have cabinets above your sink.
Dual Handle Faucets
Some customers still prefer the traditional dual-handled faucet style because controlling the temperature from separate handles is convenient. Dual-handled faucets also provide a classic look. One of the popular dual-handle looks is the “bridge style faucet,” where decorative pipe risers are visible above the sink or counter and connect to the spout rather than being kept out of sight below the sink.
Touchless/Motion Detecting Faucets
Kitchen faucets have seen significant advancements in technology in recent years. There’s no need to touch the faucet to operate with motion-activated taps, which is especially helpful when you have dirty or messy hands. Touchless faucets also help conserve water by turning off automatically when not in use. If you’re unsure about this technology, don’t worry; you still have a manual control to override the motion option.
A side-spray faucet includes a separate sprayer from the main faucet and is usually a less costly option for those on a budget. Higher-end faucet lines, however, feature elegant pistols that match the faucet and other sink accessories like soap dispensers to achieve a more stylish look.
