Long Island homeowners are blessed with an unlimited amount of interior design options, from light fixtures right down to the kitchen sink. If you are planning a home renovation project, consider the advantages of five of the most popular types of kitchen faucets available today.
A Guide to the Best Types of Kitchen Faucets on the Market
1) Pull Down Faucets
Pull down faucets are probably the most popular option right now. With a high-arching, majestic look, these fixtures are easily recognizable.
In these designs, the water flows in one fluid motion downwards from the tap. Theses faucets also come with the ability to move them 180 or 360 degrees around the sink, which can be useful when washing the dishes. This type of faucet works best in large, deep kitchen sinks.
2) Pull Out Faucets
Pull out faucets are similar to those that pull down, except they typically have an integrated spray head, which can move in any direction you choose.
For example, you could move the spray head over the counter to wash a large pot, which doesn’t fit in the sink.
The spouts of these types of kitchen faucets are generally shorter and lower arching than the pull down variety. Pull out faucets work well in smaller sinks.
Kitchen faucets have come a long way in recent years.
Many modern Long Island homes now have smart technology built right in to their sinks. Just like touchless bathrooms in commercial buildings, these types of kitchen faucets can be activated without any physical contact.
Touchless kitchen faucets are more than a gimmick; they are now designed to be both fashionable and functional.
4) Commercial/Fusion Style
The commercial/fusion style of kitchen faucets has been adapted from those frequently used in commercial design projects.
However, these faucets are now chosen by want to make a decorative statement with a non-traditional style they find appealing. Commercial/fusion faucets can add an air of professionalism to a home’s kitchen that is not found in other types of kitchen faucets.
5) Two-Handle Faucets
It seems that interior design trends often come full circle.
Recently, two-handle faucets, one of the oldest styles, have come back into vogue. This quaint kitchen fixture is preferred by some, because of its old-school style and superior temperature and stream strength control.
As you can see, you have lots of options to choose from when planning your kitchen layout. Whether you prefer a traditional pull down faucet or would like to try a touchless fixture, Kohler is your source for the industry’s leading models.
