Choosing the Right Faucet Type For Your Kitchen

One of the most exciting parts of owning a home is creating a space that reflects your own interests and creative designs. A vital part of those designs is upgrading your kitchen through installing new faucets. There are more than a dozen styles of kitchen faucets today, so our expert crew at Handyman Connection® of Alpharettahas put together a list to help ease your decision-making process.

Kitchen Faucet

While they differ in looks and function, they all serve the same general purpose. Here are some of them:

Pull Out Faucets

Kitchens that don’t have enough sink space can benefit a lot from this faucet type. Its integrated spray head allows you to move from sink to countertop, so you can easily fill large pots with water even if your sink doesn’t have ample room. Since pull out faucets come with one handle, you can regulate the water flow and temperature without difficulty.

Pull Down Faucets

One of the more common types among kitchens, pull down faucets have a sprayer that you can pull down into and around the sink. Their unique, high-arching design makes any kitchen look majestic. They come in a variety of designs that can complement your specific kitchen style.

Separate Spray Faucets

For a faucet that can serve different functions at once, consider this type. Separate spray faucets have a lower sprout, a single lever control, and a side spray. These features can make your kitchen life easier, especially if you often rinse dishes or food. As opposed to just one main hole for the faucet, however, separate spray faucets require extra holes in the countertop for the side spray.

Two Handle Faucets

As its name suggests, this faucet type has two separate handles for controlling water flow: one for hot water and the other for cold water. All of its features are on a single centerpiece, which is referred to as the centerset configuration.

Motion Detection Faucets

Also known as touchless faucets, they are new to the industry and are quite easy to get used to. They function based on hand movements and auto activate when you place a pot underneath the head. You can turn them on or off without even pressing a button.
