What to Know When Shopping for a New Kitchen Faucet
In addition to providing our customers with the latest news and information regarding trends and new products for kitchen and bathroom design, we also like to share helpful tips when we can. In fact, we’ve dedicated a section of the European Sink Atlanta website to be a place where we can share such information that homeowners can use to make informed and well-thought out decisions when selecting new plumbing fixtures and such.
We thought today would be a great time to share some of our advice with you, so below is some advice on kitchen faucets. If you’re in the market for a new faucet for your kitchen sink, take a look below before you start shopping.
- The two most common types of kitchen faucets are single-handle faucets (center sets featuring one lever or knob that controls hot and cold functions) and widespread faucets (this type consists of a hot-water valve, a cold-water valve, and a spout, all mounted separately).
- Think about style and how you will need your spout to function when narrowing down your choices. For example, a gooseneck model has a higher clearance, making it easy to fill a large pot, but it can cause lots of splashing if a sink is too shallow.
- Kitchen faucets come in a number of finishes, so be sure to pick the finish that best suits the rest of your kitchen’s design. An oiled rubbed bronze, for instance, is often a popular choice for traditional kitchens.
Visit the European Sink Atlanta website for more information regarding kitchen faucets, or just stop in at our showroom, located at 2655 Buford Highway in Atlanta. Our knowledgeable staff is here to help you select the perfect faucet for your kitchen.
