We are sure to have the style and finish for your new faucet that fits you and your new kitchen.
Kitchen faucets should be more than just functional; they set the style of the kitchen and for a unified look are usually selected to coordinate with the kitchen appliances and cabinets. You will find that no matter your style and taste, there is a faucet design for you. With the choices available in the market today, making a decision can be overwhelming. As you design your kitchen, there are several function and style options you’ll want to consider to ensure you choose the right faucet for you. Here are the most common kitchen faucet styles available and each has many features providing different functionalities to your dream kitchen:
- Single handle
- Two handle
- Single handle with pull down or pull out spray
- Wall mount
- Pot filler
- Water filtration
What Kind of Handles Do You Want?
With styles that range from traditional to modern, a single handle kitchen faucet allows for one-handed quick water flow and temperature adjustments. Single handle kitchen faucets use just one control to adjust water temperature as needed and most models are available with or without side sprays.
Traditionally, a kitchen faucet is paired with two handles – one for cold water and one for hot water, allowing you to adjust separately or both together for warm water. This is a great style to consider if you’re creating a traditional or period-style kitchen.
What Kind of Sprayer Do You Want?
You can choose a spray that comes with the faucet that can be either a traditional side spray or a more modern pullout spray. A traditional side spray, sometimes called a vegetable spray, is mounted on the countertop or sink.
Some newer faucet models have sprayers integrated right into the faucet itself. A great mix of style and functionality, pull-out kitchen faucets have a faucet head that pulls out and with a touch of a button the water pattern switches from regular flow to spray. These faucets typically feature a tall spout height deliver a high volume of water when sprayed.
What Do You Put in the Sink?
Wall-Mount Faucets actually mount to the wall above the sink. This is a great option if you’re looking for an antique style kitchen and can help you achieve that clutter-free look.
Pot Filler Faucets are for the serious cooking enthusiast. This cold water faucet is installed in addition to a regular kitchen faucet and mounts on the wall behind a stove or on a countertop near the stove. It is used to fill a pot that is already on the stovetop.
Spout height and reach varies on each faucet. If you wash a large number of bulky pots and pans, choose a high arch faucet with a tall, curved neck. The standard arch faucet spout is generally 3-5 inches high and is best for smaller sinks and everyday pots and dishes. The faucet reach should be considered as well and should direct water into the center of the sink.
Do You Want a Filter?
Dispensing clean, filtered drinking water, beverage faucets bring a new level of convenience to the kitchen. A water filtration faucet or water filtering system is one of the ways that you can save tons of money over the cost of buying bottled water.
There are accessories in styles and finishes that complement faucets and add to the functionality of your kitchen. Soap/lotion dispensers, side sprays, drains and strainers, as well as air gap and faucet hole covers are all available.
As you can see, there are many styles of faucets to choose from. Whatever you have in mind for your new dream kitchen, 5 Day Kitchens™ is here to help.
