In the Kitchen: Talking Faucets

Did you know that the faucet is one of the most used elements in the kitchen?

Let’s just pause for a moment and think about that. Hands get washed. Food gets washed. Dishes get washed. You with me? The faucet gets used a lot.

Today I thought I’d share with you some things to consider in when selecting your kitchen faucet.


How you use your faucet: Do you like a hot and cold tap to turn on and off? Do you want only one handle?


Height: What is around your faucet? If it is in front of a window how is the window sill incorporated? Consider the surrounding elements when selecting your faucet.


Type of Sink: You will need a different style if your sink is an undermount sink compared to a drop-in sink.



Style: What is the style of your kitchen? Is it ultra-modern? Is it a farmhouse-style? Somewhere in between?



Finish: Do you want stainless, chrome, brass or nickel? Polished or brushed?


Do you want a hands-free feature where you only have to lightly touch the faucet to activate it? Do you want a soap dispenser? Do you want to be able to pull-out or pull-down the nozzle to clean a specific area?





So many things to consider. I am working on a kitchen that is being installed right now. Can hardly wait to show you the installed faucet in the finished kitchen!

Remember when choosing your kitchen faucet choose with care and don’t cheap out. What type of faucet do you have in your house?

  1. We are using an above counter mounted faucet with a pull out sprayer. You know I thought the sprayer would be the best thing ever but now I find it hard to clean. Next time it will be a nice simple goose neck with a single handle! Live and learn!
