Kitchen Sink Faucet Options

You use it fill up pots, wash your hands and clean produce, but beyond that, you probably give very little thought to the faucet on your kitchen sink.  However, when you find yourself making upgrades to your kitchen, it’s a good idea to carefully consider your use of the sink to determine which type of faucet makes the most sense for you.  Allow us to fill you in on the choices available to you.

Mounting Styles

Wall Mounted: Homeowners that opt for this option appreciate the ease at which they are able to clean their countertops.  They’re great if you find yourself cooking large meals and need to fill oversized pots with water.  If you live in a colder climate, verify whether local building codes permit installation on an outside wall.   Be sure if you go with this style that it’s properly insulated.

Deck Mounted: This style of faucet attaches right to the countertop and sink and is the most common kitchen sink style.  Homeowners favor this type of faucet because it provides a seamless appearance.  This style works well in modern kitchens.  Be sure to leave ample room behind the faucet so that you have room to clean behind it, as dirt, water & other gunk can get trapped between the faucet and the wall.

Handle Choices

Single Handle: This style of faucet provides a modern look, as a single handle regulates both hot and cold temperatures.  The main downside of a single handle sink is that the temperature control on the faucet isn’t as accurate as other types.  However, if you favor the idea of only one hole in your countertop, this style is for you.

Double Handle: While this design is most commonly found in bathrooms, it’s also picking up steam in the kitchen.  Dual handles provide a uniform look and permit better control of temperature and water pressure.

Hands Free: A built-in sensor operates these faucets, though they still have handles which allow you to regulate temperature and water pressure.  They’re great for cooking when hands are too dirty to be used to turn the sink on and off.  They’re a great fit for those with arthritis.  With this style, you never have to be concerned with your sink overflowing accidentally.  Bear in mind that the hands free feature is regulated through a battery and that it will need to be changed in order to keep it functioning properly.
