The World of Kitchen Faucets

Are you thinking about remodeling your kitchen? As you are working with a contractor designing your new space, you’ll want to look at all of the options for your kitchen sink faucets available on the market now. Depending on the look you are going for, there are different styles available that would complement the overall form and function of the design and remodel.

Kitchen faucet styles

You thought you could just say I want a nice facet for my kitchen and remodel? You just entered the world of kitchen faucets! Here are some of the options available to you:

Touchless Kitchen Faucet

The touchless or hands-free style is a newer style of the faucet which employs sensors to start the water flow.

Some models include a handle to give you dual control faucets. You can use both the handle and the sensors to activate the faucet. A few of the styles offer touchless kitchen faucets which have sensors located in several positions which makes it easier and convenient to turn the faucet on. These sensors are usually powered by a battery or an AC power plug.

Touch On Kitchen Faucet

The touch on is one of the newer types of faucets on the market. The touch on feature makes it easy to turn on or off the faucet when your hands are dirty. You touch the faucet spout or the handle to turn on your faucet. You can use your wrist, forearm, etc. to activate the water flow.

The temperature can be set with the help of the single handle which can be done before you start with the kitchen tasks. Some models also feature a LED light which lets you know the water temperature and prevents any surprises.

Single-Hole Kitchen Faucet

This kitchen faucet is the most commonly used and requires only one hole in the countertop for installation and has a relatively simple design. It has a handle for setting the water flow and temperature while you can adjust the water pressure by installing your choice of the aerator in the faucet spout. There are several which will look elegant or modern. You’ll get both convenience and style with this type of kitchen faucet.

Kitchen Faucet with a Side Sprayer

The side sprayer option is for people that don’t want a kitchen faucet with a detachable head. This could be because they are concerned about their hygiene or aesthetics of the kitchen. While both the faucet and the side sprayer will use the same water pipe, the sprayer will extend similarly as a detachable spray head. It will have its own features like 360-degrees swivel, adjustable aerators, etc.

Double-Hole Kitchen Faucet

This faucet is a double-handle faucet or a center set faucet as it features two separate handles for controlling hot and cold water. This faucet requires multiple holes to install it. It is ideal for families because hot and cold water handles are clearly marked, so there are fewer chances of accidents. It is known as center set kitchen faucet because a single metal plate connects all the lines and the faucet spout together.

Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet

The Pull-Out Kitchen Faucets have a detachable spray head which can be pulled out towards you. It includes a hose which allows this to happen and makes it more flexible to use.

This faucet is one of the most versatile faucets in the market and is excellent for a variety of kitchen tasks. You can fill water with it, rinse the dishes, or clean the hard-to-reach places in a sink or a utensil. This faucet comes in all kinds of materials and designs which will suit your kitchen design and be long-lasting.

Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet

Pull-Out and Pull-Down faucets have similar features, but they also differ slightly in the design. The spray heads of the Pull-Down kitchen faucets are located in a downward direction and used as an extension of the faucet. There is not a separate hose which can make them less flexible. The positive is that there are fewer chances of splashing. With Pull-Down kitchen faucet, you can’t access above the sink rim, so it is easier to keep your sink area clean.
