How to Choose a New Kitchen Faucet
Learn about the different factors to choose when choosing a new kitchen faucet, such as style, dimensions, features, and finish.
When is the best time to select a kitchen faucet?
The ideal time to select a faucet is before the start of any kitchen renovation - before layout design, counter or cabinet selection, If replacing an existing faucet, there will be limitations based on the number of existing faucet holes and cabinet space.
Designing your kitchen layout around the sink and faucet ensures that the completed kitchen delivers optimal functionality- with enough room and the right sink and faucet to suit your needs.
What's your style preference?
Determine what style will fit the design of your kitchen. From modern semi-professional to traditional bridge faucets – understanding your style preference will help you pick a faucet you will love.
Ensure there is enough clearance for upper cabinetry by knowing the height of the faucet you’re interested in. High arc faucets are usually more suited for island installations, or in front of a window.
Make sure you check how far the spout reaches out from the faucet’s base to ensure it’s proportionate to the size of your sink.
Think about your kitchen tasks.
Look for features like pull-out or pull-down sprays, which will provide ergonomic benefits to your kitchen routine. Semi-professional features such as hose coils and magnetic docking arms can add a lot of value to everyday kitchen tasks.
