Choosing The Right Kitchen Faucet

Whether you are looking to upgrade your kitchen faucet, need a refresh, or need a replacement, there are a few things to consider when shopping for a new one. Replacing with an exact match is simple, but a whole new style requires a bit of planning. Read on to find out what you need to know before you make a purchase.

Spout Height and Reach

Determine what you will use the faucet for. Do you often fill up and wash large pots? Do you only wash a few utensils, cups, and plates? Usage plus the depth and size of your sink, and the amount of room you have will help narrow down your options.

Pull-Down vs. Conventional Sprayers

A pull-down sprayer is handy if you have a big sink or do a lot of food rinsing. A small sink most likely will not need this feature.

Number of Holes in the Sink

Check the number of faucet mounting holes in your sink. Some new faucets come with cover plates to hide the holes that are no longer used, but some do not. It is much easier to match the number of holes that you currently have, or to cover an unused hole, than it is to drill an extra one.

Single vs. Multiple Handles

Single-handle faucets are typically more convenient than two-handle faucets, especially if your hands are full in the kitchen. There are differing opinions on which can deliver more precise temperature control.
