When remodelling your kitchen, don’t forget about your kitchen faucet! It’s one of the most important features of your home. It is where you clean the dishes, wash your hands, or scrub vegetables and fruits. It is being used more heavily than any other kitchen feature.
That’s why it is important to choose the right faucet that works best for you. When choosing a faucet, here are important factors to take note of:
What To Consider
It’s not always about how the faucet looks. You need to consider these when choosing a faucet:
There are three kinds of handles to consider. The hands-free faucets are convenient to use. It has an infrared detector, which means you just have to move your hand in front of it to turn on the faucet.
Single lever faucets are best in controlling the water volume and temperature. You can also easily adjust the water flow and temperature according to your needs. While a two-handled faucet offers a more classic appearance. It’s also easier to control the water flow and temperature.
Do you have a modern or traditional kitchen? Or a farmhouse kitchen? Faucets come in different styles too and it’s vital to choose the style that will complement your whole kitchen.
Most homeowners don’t realize that the right style will enhance the overall look of your kitchen. Luckily, there are many options to choose from like polished chrome, stainless steel, wrought iron, polished nickel, and many more.
A spray feature is convenient and helps you control where you want the water to go. It also allows you to reach every angle.
Most faucets with spray features have two controls—a spray or a steady jet. You can either buy a faucet with a spray feature or have it installed on the side of your current faucet. If the spray feature is part of the faucet, you can choose from coil, pull-down, or pull-out options.
Nuts and Bolts
Faucets come in different sizes, that’s why not every faucet will fit every sink. Before choosing a faucet, you need to check how many holes there are in your countertop.
With three holes, you can install a faucet and spray feature. If you prefer a single-handle faucet, you can use a deck plate at the base of the faucet to cover extra holes.
To get the correct faucet, you need to measure the kitchen cabinets or window sills to ensure that the height of your faucet will not cause any problem with other features you already have,
