Faucet Guide

Types of Kitchen Faucets

Your kitchen may need just one type of faucet, or it may need a variety of different faucets depending on its location and function. Kitchen sink faucets come in many varieties including single-handle and two-handle, as well as pull-out and pull-down.

  • Bar faucets are designed for smaller sinks due to their compact and simplified design.
  • Pot filler faucets allow you to fill a pot while it is on the stove, so you no longer need to carry a heavy pot of water around your kitchen.

If you want to easily control the stream of water from your faucet, pull-out and pull-down faucets are a great choice. These faucets allow you to maneuver the spout for efficient dishwashing and rinsing.

  • Pull-down faucets make it easy to fill large pots of water, wash and rinse dishes with the two-function sprayer, while the high-arc neck allows you to easily fit tall pots and glassware.
  • Pull-out faucets offer the same useful functions as pull-down faucets, but are a better option for smaller spaces and shallow sinks because they are not as tall and have less splash.

Choosing a Finish

The finish of your faucet is up to personal preference, but you can use the other metal finishes in your kitchen as a guide. Keep in mind the finish of your appliances, cabinet hardware, and lighting fixtures in order to choose a faucet finish that complements the tones of the rest of your kitchen.
