Selecting Your Ideal Kitchen Faucet

There are several factors to consider when deciding on your next kitchen faucet.

The kitchen faucet is a crucial part of your home. It is one of the most-used elements of your kitchen, from washing hands to scrubbing vegetables and cleaning dishes. Considering the heavy workload of your kitchen faucet, this faucet must work for you the right way while adding to the style of your kitchen that you have worked so hard to design. When selecting your new kitchen faucet, consider the following factors to determine what will work best for you. 

The Handles

Single lever faucets are good for efficiently controlling the temperature and water volume of your sink. It’s easy to turn the water on and off, and you can adjust the flow and temperature as your needs change. Two-handled faucets can be equally easy to use, although slightly less efficient than single-handle faucets. However, two-handle faucets provide a more classic look compared to the somewhat more modern single handle. 

Hands-free faucets are also an option and provide the highest level of convenience. This can be especially useful for busy chefs who often have their hands covered in grease or other ingredients and don’t want to touch the faucet handles before washing their hands. 

Spray Features

A spray feature on your kitchen faucet is helpful for numerous things. It can help you control where you want water in your sink, allow you to reach difficult angles, fill a pot, move the faucet for a little one who can’t quite reach to wash their hands, and more. 

Many spray features offer two controls: a steady jet or a spray. This can be hopeful as you switch up your needs. You can typically have a spray feature installed as part of the faucet or have one installed to the side of your kitchen faucet. If the spray feature is part of the faucet, you can choose pull-out, coil, and pull-down options. 

Faucet Style

The right style for your kitchen faucet can influence the entire look of your kitchen. When selecting your faucet, find a finish that works well with other appliances, features, or hardware in your kitchen. You can choose stainless steel, polished chrome, polished nickel, wrought iron, and more. If you have a traditional, modern, or farmhouse kitchen, select a kitchen faucet that matches your design

The Extras

You may consider adding a filtration faucet next to your sink to give you cold and filtered drinking water in a convenient place. Or, you may install a pot filler faucet above the stove. You can also consider adding lotion or soap dispensers to keep those bottles off of your counters. Take time to consider any extra features for your kitchen faucet that may save you time, add convenience, or just make your kitchen experience more enjoyable.
