Kitchen faucets may be the hardest decision to make for a kitchen remodel project. There are so many designs to consider that it is difficult to decide which one is just right. Some faucets come with a pull-down sprayer that makes cleaning the sink or anything in it a breeze. Other combinations have a separate sprayer attachment. Even the separate sprayer attachments come in different styles and designs.

Some kitchen faucets are packaged with a matching separate side spray and a dispenser for soap that is built into the sink. Single handle faucets are the most popular simply because of the ease of water temperature control with one hand. The spout height is an important consideration. It should fit appropriately with the depth of the sink. Make sure it is high enough that you can get large pots or containers under it for filling.

Many Kitchen Faucets to Consider

Kitchen faucets are designed for two-hole, three-hole, and four-hole installation. The shape of the design is important for the overall decor in the kitchen. The tall, sleekly curved faucets have an overpowering appearance over the lower and slightly curved design. Some designs cover a wider sweep than others do. The scope of the faucet should match the size of the sink.

Faucets for the kitchen are available in a variety of materials. These include stainless steel, polished chrome, polished brass, bronze, brushed platinum, antique copper, polished nickel, and a combination of polished brass and polished chrome. The beauty of the sink can be either accentuated or toned down by the choice of faucet.
