Kitchen Faucets 101: Discover Which Option Will Work Best for Your Kitchen

When it comes time to remodel your kitchen, it can seem as though there are a million and one decisions to make. Some will be exciting and easy, while others may be more challenging. At Mission West Kitchen and Bath we offer a wide range of materials in one place so you can do all your shopping with a company you trust. We also have designers on hand who can go over your choices and help you narrow down the options until you are left with the perfect results.

One of the decisions you may have to make is what type of kitchen faucet to install. Many homeowners put little thought into choosing the right one, but the fact of the matter is that you are likely to use your kitchen faucet daily. You want to make a choice that gets you something that’s both beautiful and functional. Today we are going to go over the main options and their benefits so you can decide what might work best for you.

Pull Out Faucets Are Often the Best Choice in Smaller Kitchens

If you have a limited amount of space around your sink, then a pull out faucet may be the best choice. It will come with an integrated pull-out sprayer, which means that you do not need to have another hole drilled to add a side-spray. If you end up needing to wash pots, pans, or other items that are too large to fit under the faucet, you can simply pull it out and fill it on the countertop. If you have an extra wide sink, or a double sink, the pull out option helps assure you can reach the entirety of your sink.

Pull Down Faucets Are Popular for Professional-Looking Kitchens

If you want a majestic, professional-grade kitchen then a pull down faucet may be the best choice. It’s also a great choice if you have a very large sink. The main concern here is assuring that you don’t have cabinets above your sink. If you do, then you’ll nee to make sure that they are high enough that your pull down faucet’s movement is not restricted.

Dual Handle Faucets

This is a more traditional option in which one handle controls the hot water and another controls the cold water. These offer a classic look and can be a great choice in a vintage kitchen. For example, the bridge style double handle faucet, in which decorative pipe risers are above the sink, is particularly popular. The only issue with this option is that it can take longer to find the perfect temperature.
