Kitchen faucets come in a range of styles, and contrary to what most homeowners believe, their differences aren’t restricted to how they look. Faucet styles range from traditional to contemporary, and each one performs distinctly from the other.
In this post, your experts at Handyman Connection® of Citrus Heights discusses how to pick the right kitchen faucet style for your home.
This is the most common faucet style and has just one handle that you use to adjust the water flow and temperature. This is the perfect faucet style if you need your other hand free to do your kitchen duties. They also don’t take up any extra space on the sink, which is always a bonus. These faucets usually have an integrated spray head that you can pull out and bring along, hence the name.
The opposite of the pull-out faucet, the pull-down style droops downwards, ensuring one fluid movement when you turn the faucet on. This design makes it a great choice for bigger and deeper sinks.
Separate Spray Faucet
This is essentially a pull-down faucet, but it has a separate spray and (usually) a separate lever or knob. This is a great choice if the more common integrated faucets clash with the design, and you’d rather have a downward faucet with an extendable spray.
Two Handle Faucets
This is the classic faucet design with two handles for hot and cold water. While many consider it dated, they’re a great fit for homes who want to keep that timeless and traditional kitchen appearance.
Motion detection faucets are the newest style and, as their name suggests, don’t require you to turn on a knob or pull a lever to operate. Simply hover your hand near the faucet, and it will turn on. This is one of the pricier faucet styles, but it’s a great investment if you want things seamless in your kitchen.
