Whether you’re building the kitchen of your dreams in the house of your dreams, or remodeling your older kitchen, a kitchen faucet is one of the most important things that you will purchase. Whether you are looking for retro faucets for your renovation or contemporary kitchen sink faucets for your new decor, there are a few things that you need to consider before picking out your hardware.
*The best way to select a kitchen faucet is to bring your tallest pot with you to the showroom. You will want to be able to put the pot in the sink and still have the faucet clear the rim of the pot.
*If you are looking for an all-in-one unit, instead of a traditional faucet and sprayer, you have some different models to choose. There are some in which the sprayer is incorporated in the faucet design and pulls out from the base. Others are pull down sprayers which would not be out of place in a commercial kitchen.
*Faucets no longer come in just one finish, there are many options available, such as oil rubbed brass, brushed nickel, copper, and enameled colors such as bisque, black, and white.
*Don’t forget to make sure that the faucet you are buying looks good with your sink, which will pull your kitchen look together.
The kitchen is often described as the heart of the house, and yours should reflect your lifestyle and your choices. Renovating your kitchen can also add value to your home when it comes time to sell. In the same vein, updating a kitchen before putting the house on the market is a great way to add thousands to the final sale price. Work with qualified and experienced professional for the best results.
