Choosing the Right Faucet for Your Kitchen

One of the best parts of being a homeowner is being able to create a space that reflects your personality and creative designs. Upgrade your kitchen by choosing the best furnishings and installing new faucets is a vital part of these designs. With the variety of kitchen faucet styles today, however, how can one find the best one for their home? Handyman Connection of Eden Prairie discusses the features and benefits of the basic faucet types.


Pull-Out Faucets

This faucet style is perfect for kitchens with limited sink space, as it allows you to pull the hose away so you can fill pots and pans on the countertop. This also features a single handle, which means you can adjust the temperature easily with one hand, leaving you free to do other chores with your other hand.

Pull-Down Faucets

These are one of the more common faucet types in kitchens, featuring a movable sprayer that you can pull into and around the sink. It has a unique, high-arching design that adds a majestic air to your kitchen. Since this style doesn’t need adjusting, this is perfect for kitchens with big and deep sinks.

Two-Handle Faucets

As the name suggests, a two-handle faucet features two separate handles that control water flow, one for hot water and the other for cold water. This traditional option adds plenty of style to your kitchen without being too flashy, making it an excellent choice for your home. Additionally, if one of the handles springs a leak, simply turn off its shut-off valve and use the remaining handle instead.

Touchless/Motion Detection

This modern kitchen faucet is incredibly convenient and fairly easy to get used to. It functions based on your hand movements, which makes them more hygienic than other faucet types. They also auto activate when you put a pot underneath the head, so you can turn them on and off without having to press any buttons. Also, they come with beautiful finishes, making them a great addition to your home.
