There are many important aspects to your kitchen. Picking a faucet that's right for you is an often overlooked, but very necessary part of your kitchen layout and functionality. Whether you’re washing dishes or simply pouring a glass of water, picking out a faucet for your needs can be tricky. Let’s make it easy.
Just go through the list below and you’ll be on your way to buying a faucet of your dreams.
How to Pick A Kitchen Faucet Right For You
What type of activities do you mainly use your sink for? Will you be doing heavy-duty washing with cast-iron pots? Or will you just be cleaning the china that won’t fit in the dishwasher? Getting a faucet with different the right spout options and pressure control may be necessary.
If you will be washing large items like pots and pans, you may need a high-necked faucet to reach every dirty spot. To attack that grease and grime more effectively, you can get a spray nozzle faucet.
Are you concerned about placement of your faucet? Maybe you are a cook who simply wants to turn around from the stove and be at the sink. If that’s the case, you may want to consider where you set your faucet, whether it’s near the stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.
You should also keep in mind that your sink is able to go wherever a waterline can, so you can place it on the sink itself, on the wall above, or even on the countertop. This may be necessary if you want to save room in your kitchen sink.
You never know what could be in your water these days. And buying a new filter every week for your water jug just isn’t cutting it anymore. You can now get a water filtration faucet system that will solve all your hydration problems.
