Whether you are looking to simple update your kitchen, doing a total kitchen remodeling project, or replacing an old leaky kitchen faucet, choosing a new faucet can be a lot to do.
It’s not just a simple decision anymore. With all the features such as the finish, the number of handles, or pulling the faucet out or down, it can be overwhelming to say the least!
embee & son is here to help you with things to consider before buying a new kitchen faucet. We hope these 5 things can help you with your options before you even leave the comfort of your home.
- What is your style?
When you start shopping, it’s good to know what is your style and the style of your kitchen. Look for shape, design, and lines that reflect it. For example,
- What are your uses?
Are your large pots and pans constantly filling up the sink? Then maybe a faucet with an arched neck might be the right choice. Do you wash most of your dishes with the faucet or do you mainly use it for rinsing?
- Is a sprayer a necessity?
This question addresses mainly the functionality of the faucet. Keep in mind how you are using the faucet will help in the decision if you should chose a multi-function spray faucet, a side sprayer, or no sprayer at all.
- How many handles do you like?
One handle will allow you to adjust the water temperature and the amount of flow with a single motion while two handles will allow you to mix the hot and cold water.
- How many holes are in your existing sink?
Keep in mind what is already in your kitchen unless you are doing a remodel with a new sink. Knowing how many holes your current faucet has will determine your search a bit more. Keep in mind many manufacturers offer optional deck plates so if you currently have 3 holes and want a single hole faucet, you could cover it up if that is the look you want.
