The Faucet For You

How to pick the right faucet for your kitchen?

Think about your daily experiences and how the amalgamation of the perfect features – handles, spout height, and sprayers – can help you create a plot that works for you. Undoubtedly, you spend half an hour of your early morning and an hour of your evening in your divine kitchen. To help you make this cautious decision, we have outlined a very easy ‘must know’ to pick the ideal kitchen faucet.

  1. Handpick your location: The first assessment would be to decide the type of faucet you need. This will depend on the size of your sink and how many holes your new faucet needs.

    The Deck-Mounted Faucet —This is best suited for single basin sinks. The Deck-mounted faucets provide a seamless look that’s especially well-suited to contemporary kitchens. When installing a deck-mounted faucet, make sure to allow more than a finger’s width behind the faucet for cleaning.

    The Wall- Mounted Faucet — Wall-mounted faucets are attached to the wall, as opposed to being attached to the sink or to the counter like a deck-mounted faucet or tap. These faucets extend over the sink and are available in a wide variety of styles, sizes, colours, and finishes.

  1. Examine your sink — You need to be aware of the number of holes in your sink or counter before you go kitchen faucet shopping. Kitchen faucets can have from one to four mounting holes.

    Fixtures with one hole gives a basic and clean look, though additional holes give you an array of choices. Three holes are used for the spout and two handles and a fourth hole could be an accessory for example a soap dispenser. Each new faucet indicates on the packaging how many mounting holes it needs for installation. 

  1. The Good Character Arc — It’s late night and you are trying to wobble your large pot under a low spout which eventually causes a completely avoidable battle. If so, you recognise the significance of a faucet that is just the right height. There are two main types – Low and High Arc Faucets. These differ in aesthetics as well as functionality.

    High Arc Faucets — These furnish your kitchen with an extra workspace over the sink which makes it a go to for professional chefs and home cooks. It makes washing large pots and pans easy. However, keep in mind that this also leads to more splashing of water on the sides of your sink.

    Low Arc Faucets — If your sink sits below cabinets or shelves, low arc faucets might sit better for you. These blend better with the background and will definitely keep you focused on the wonderful views outside your window. 

  1. Wave of Convenience — In this era, we want you to have all options to make things more convenient. You can pick between zero, one or two handle faucets.

    No Handle —You have the choice to get motion censored faucets; for example, Dona Series. These minimize water wastage, are germ controlled and provides hands free convenience.

    Single Handle — Single Handled Faucets give you an option to regulate water flow in an up and down motion. The number of holes and the mounting type will need to be matched.

    Double Handle — Double handle faucets require a minimum of three holes in the sink or the wall. These have dedicated hot and cold-water handles allowing for adjustments to water temperature as well as flow rate. The double handle faucets are adaptive and complement well with your needs. 

  1. Sprayer Selections — You could either get the standard faucets with no extension for a clean-cut look or the extended sprayer options. Amongst the extended sprayer options, people prefer either a pull-down faucet which provides extended reach in the corners or a pullout faucet with their streamlined arc making it easy to hold and use.

  2. The final touch — Faucets might not be the centre of attention in your kitchen, but it is definitely used the most. You spend more active time in the kitchen than any other room. You want your faucet to be long lasting, drip free and it needs to compliment with your kitchen and aesthetic. We recommend looking at the finishes and designs available as well as making sure the material is durable. Nothing is more disappointing that having to call the plumber in the middle of an already busy day because of overflows and silly drips.
