The Kitchen Faucet Showroom Guide
Whether you’re replacing your old kitchen faucet or picking a new kitchen faucet as part of a larger remodeling project…
Here’s a few questions to think about before the water starts to flow.
How Many Holes Are in Your Sink?
If you’re doing a quick DIY remodel by replacing your old kitchen faucet, choose a new one that has the same number of holes in the deck of the sink as the one that’s being tossed.
Single-Handle faucets (with integrated handle and spout) need 1 hole for the handle / spout piece and usually require a separate hole for a sprayer. Traditional 2 Handle Kitchen faucets, with hot and cold taps, require 3 holes for the handles and spout. Other options, such as integrated sprayers and soap dispensers, can create other requirements.
What Kind Of Sprayer Do You Want?
If you prefer a clean sink deck without a sidespray or additional accessories, a pull-down faucet may be the right choice for you. Pull-down Kitchen Faucets typically feature a generous spout height as well as multiple spray options – stream, spray and pause – for easy use.
Offering the same functionality as pull-down faucets, Pullout Kitchen Faucets generally have a larger section of the faucet that pulls away. If you like a larger grip area, a Pullout Kitchen Faucet may be more comfortable for you to use.
What About A Wall Mount Kitchen Faucet?
If you like little to no clutter on your counters, a wall-mount faucet can help you achieve that clutter-free look. Several of our deck-mount faucets, in traditional and contemporary styles, are available as wall-mount faucets.
