When you’re designing or remodeling a kitchen, attention needs to be paid to every last detail. Even though the faucet is a small part of the makeup of your kitchen, it’s a feature that will be used everyday. That’s why we developed this short read to guide you through the various kitchen faucet types you will find at the hardware store.
At Satin and Slate, we focus on every last detail of your home design to ensure it fits your desired aesthetic and your lifestyle. In this article, we go over the different factors of a faucet to help you choose the one that is best for you and your home.
- Deck mount.
- Wall mount
Deck Mount Kitchen Faucet
A deck mount kitchen faucet is attached through the countertop or on the sink edge. This type of faucet is more common for residential kitchens.
Wall Mount Kitchen Faucet
A wall mount kitchen faucet hangs over the sink and is attached to the wall. They have a modern, space saving design that is more common in commercial spaces and seen less often in homes.
- Hands free
Single-handle faucets operate by combining the hot and cold water through one lever. The appearance of one lever generally looks more modern. While this faucet type has a simplicity to it, some find the water temperature more difficult to control.
Two-handle faucets have a lever for both the hot and the cold water supply. The look of this faucet type is more traditional. It is easier to control the water temperature by having them operated by separate levers
Hands Free Faucets
Faucets are now made to be hands free. They can be controlled by either motion or touch. This type of faucet helps prevent water waste as it turns off as soon as it’s no longer being used.
- Faucet Finishes
- Extra Features
When deciding on the finish for your faucet, consider the look you want for your kitchen. If you want everything in your kitchen to match, you will want to use the same type of hardware for your faucet that your cabinets have. However, the trends in contemporary design encourage mixing up your finishes.
- Stainless steel
- Brushed nickel
Faucets are made to fit every budget. If you are looking for more than a basic faucet, consider one with extra features. Faucets are now designed for added convenience with features such as soap dispensers, hot water dispensers, and filters.
Even a small feature such as a kitchen faucet can help enhance the aesthetic of your kitchen. When you’re ready for a new kitchen design, work with a company that focuses on every detail.
