Selecting the Best Faucet for your Kitchen
You’ve just spent weeks renovating your new kitchen, pouring over every last detail from the handles on the kitchen cabinets, down to the soft close drawer slides. Everything is coming together seamlessly with the exception of the kitchen faucet. With the ability to impact the overall look of the space, you want to make sure the hardware you select aligns with your functional needs as well as your personal style.
Let’s face it. The kitchen sink is one of the most used spaces in the entire home, which means great functionality and design can be a lifesaver. From sleek and sophisticated to touchless or traditional, you won’t run short on great options. Here are a few of our favorites to consider before making your next purchase.
It’s All About Function
Pull-out faucets are great for achieving a wide range of motion with the detachable head and sprayer. It allows access to the hard-to-reach areas of the sink and makes cleanup a breeze. The gooseneck spout of a pull-down faucet makes it easier to spray every corner of the sink, as well as get into large pots and pans for hand washing.
Keeping it Classic
The most classic kitchen faucet is the standard single handle design. This makes it easy to move from left to right for hot or cold water. (Has anyone else used their elbow to turn on this type of faucet when your hands are messy? It makes life so much easier than having knobs to turn!) Another plus, these faucets are reliable, easy to repair, and are simple enough for DIYers.
Look Ma, No Hands!
If you have ever tried to cook fried chicken at home, you will understand why this next faucet is a dream come true. Touchless faucets turn water on automatically with the wave of your hand in front of the sensor (think: sinks in many public restrooms). This means you never have to touch the hardware with messy hands ever again!
