One very important part of any kitchen is the kitchen faucet, the fixture that perhaps receives the most use in the room. A good faucet will offer form and function - meeting both the usage needs of the household and the style of the kitchen. ModSaunas.com has a wide range of styles and designs to suit the needs of any kitchen.
Types of Kitchen Faucets
When buying a kitchen sink faucet, first make sure to determine the type installation required. How many holes are drilled into the basin or countertop? This can be anywhere from one to five depending on the design. For spaces with only one hole, look for single kitchen faucets that that have the handle(s) attached the spout. This designs saves space and can provide a more contemporary look. Spaces with two holes or three holes will need to use faucets with a similar number of components. Additional holes may also be present for sprayers and other amenities. Another option all together are wall mount faucets, perfect for creating vintage looks or small counters. If you are not replacing a faucet or have the option to customize the mount, then consider the needs of your kitchen. Would you prefer two handles for hot cold, or one single adjustment? Would cross or knob handles be preferable, or would you prefer levers?
Kitchen Faucet Features
Modern kitchen sink faucets can have many other features besides a simple a water spout. One commonly desired feature is a pull down or pull out faucet, where the spout has a hose that can extend it's reach. These are perfect for sinks without extra holes for sprays. Sinks that have extra holes can consider a kitchen faucet with spray, where the the extendable sprayer is installed apart from the faucet. Both the pull out and sprayer designs make dishwashing and cleanup more efficient. Some faucets also have touch and motion sensitivity for less hands-on control and variable options for water output.
Kitchen Sink Faucet Designs
Last but not least, the aesthetic value of the faucet is also important. The finish should match other fixtures in your room, with options like brushed nickel, stainless steel, chrome, brass and more. The style of the faucet also affect function, with standard spouts reaching a few inches above the sink. High-arc, or gooseneck kitchen faucets extend up and over the sink several inches which allows larger objects to fit in the sink and offers a modern look.
