Kitchen Faucet. Wednesday , November 22nd , 2017 - 13:54:51 PM
In selecting a kitchen faucet you will want to consider the kitchen sink. Kitchen sinks usually come with from one to four or more holes to accommodate various types of kitchen faucets. If you are considering changing a faucet on an existing sink, it is better to select a faucet to fits the sink‘s current hole configuration. If you want to change from a three-hole type faucet to a single-hole one you will be left with open holes that will need to be filled. On the other hand if you try to knock out additional holes to change from a single-mount to a three-hole type faucet you run the risk of damaging an existing sink. Therefore you will find it much easier to also install a new kitchen sink and faucet together because you can choose any kind of kitchen faucet and sink that is compatible.
A two handle kitchen faucet, as its name implies, is two handled. Separate controls for hot or cold water allow precise control of temperature and water pressure. The two handle kitchen faucet will require at least 3 holes in the counter top or sink: two for the gauges and one for the faucet‘s spout. Many two handle kitchen faucets are traditionally crafted with a Victorian look; however, many brands will offer contemporary, traditional, or transitional styled two handle faucets as well.
You need to also consider your sink size. A small sink will not require a double-handle faucet. If you install a double-handle faucet with a small sink, prepare to always mop up the water. Double faucets work well with large sinks and save you all the mopping trouble. Try to also ponder on the proportional reach of your spray, if you are always washing wide dishes or big pots, select a faucet with high arch instead of a standard one. Choosing a kitchen faucet that matches your visual appeal, functionalities and is cost-friendly should be your watchword. So choose wisely or you would be having issues with your kitchen and it won‘t be about what to cook for your loved ones.
