5 Insider Tips for Selecting Best Kitchen Faucets
Online Dont we all love our kitchens? Its the
place where we cook food for our loved ones and
therefore, want everything to be nothing less
than perfect. From cabinets to work-tops and
kitchen appliances, homeowners spend a
considerable amount of time planning each and
every little detail of a kitchen, but one thing
that most people neglect is the quality and
functionality of kitchen faucets. For most
people, faucets are just an element that
facilitates the supply of water to the kitchen
sink, but if you really dig deep, youd
understand how important it is to find a set of
quality faucets. After all, kitchen faucets are
probably the one element that you interact with
most after your refrigerator. Whether you're
planning a complete kitchen remodel or simply
want to upgrade your leaky, worn out faucets,
here are five tips that will help you make the
right pick.
Look for Metal options One thing you need to
stay clear of is kitchen faucets with plastic
variants. A fully-plastic or partly plastic
faucet will feel lighter compared to an all metal
one, and may also cost more, but this little
investment will help you save immensely on costly
repairs and replacements in the near future.
Therefore, make sure that you look for products
made of brass or stainless steel. In addition,
if your faucet features a separate handle for
cold and hot water, make sure that the cartridge
beneath the handle is not Nylon. It should be
either brass or stainless steel.
Carefully study your warranty options Look for
products that come with a warranty and make sure
to ask how the warranty issues are handled. If
you are thinking to buy kitchen faucets online,
read customer reviews, as well as the warranty,
return and exchange policies of the manufacturer.
Most manufacturers provide

Limited Warranty means that they will replace the
product Free of Charge in case of mechanical
defects, material, and workmanship, under normal
use. All you have to do is submit the copy of
the purchase order or invoice to avail the
benefits of the warranty system.
Limiting Factors While choosing a new set of
faucets for the kitchen, it may be important to
determine the space that you have in and around
the sink. Where is the faucet mounted? How much
space do you have between the main sink faucet
and the backsplash? Is there a wall nearby that
can limit the movement of the handles? How deep
is the sink? In most cases where the sink is
shallow, designed recommend high arch kitchen
faucets. If your sink is pre-drilled, be sure to
check its number of faucet holes so the design
you choose fits well.
Functional Considerations When looking for new
kitchen faucets, there are a few functional
considerations that you can't neglect. Do you
cook often and need strong water spray? Do you
need a faucet with temperature memory? How
helpful would it be to have a faucet that gets
automatically turned on? Test-drive before you
buy. Make sure the handles and levers are easy to
maneuver and the sprayer pulls out and returns
easily. All this will ensure that every second
you spend working at the kitchen sink is a joy,
rather than a chore.
Know your Style Choose a faucet that
complements the design of your kitchen. Is your
style minimal, traditional or farmhouse? Let's
take a look at a few design options to suit your
kitchen style
Minimalistic

These faucets are sleek and streamlined, crafted
to exude a simple, yet sophisticated presence in
the kitchen. Minimalist designs often feature
pull-down or pull-out spray heads, or gooseneck
design. Chrome and stainless steel tend to be the
two most popular finishes for this design option.
Traditional
Kitchen faucet designers have not been immune to
latest trends like hand forged and bridge faucet
designs and that's exactly what you can see in
the latest collection in the market. They are
also the best way to create a look that takes you
back to the Victorian era. Kitchen faucets with
bronze, brass, and copper faucets create more
authenticity.

Modern
Unique shapes, straight lines, and small handles
are just a few attributes for kitchen faucets
that are best suitable for contemporary homes.
Look for nickel and stainless steel finishes to
dominate the design theme. In addition, it is
rare to see a modern faucet with black matte
finish, but is one of the high-demand kitchen
faucets that are currently on the market. What is
magical about this finish is that it matches
well with virtually any personal style.

If you're someone who likes to experiment with
your creations, there are some cutting-edge
innovations that you can look out for in this
category. While some models are geared to provide
water-efficient solutions, other boasts

sensors, spot shield technology and so on. A
motion sensor faucet is perfect for cooks who
need to wash messy hands over and over again.

kitchen faucet that is at least 10 years old, now
