What to Consider When Shopping for New Kitchen Faucets

While it may not be the most major investment, and it is certainly not the biggest renovation a kitchen may receive, installing new kitchen faucets on your kitchen sink is a great way in which to both spruce up the appearance of your kitchen as well as to make your kitchen sink more convenient and user friendly. Before you go rushing into anything, though, heed this advice; take your time when choosing your new kitchen faucets in Denver. You don’t want to wind up with faucets that don’t satisfy you stylistically or in their operation.

The mounting style of your kitchen faucet is one design factor to consider. If you are going to continue using your kitchen sink, for instance, and your existing faucet mounts directly into your sink, then a sink mounted faucet is probably the way to go. However, there are also deck mounted and even wall mounted options to consider. Each has its own pros and cons, of course, so it is best to consult with a qualified professional before committing to any particular style.

Another characteristic to consider is the handle design of the faucet. Single handled models are handy in kitchens, as you can use them easily with just one hand. However, it can be more difficult to control the temperature of the water precisely with such a model. Double handled faucets have a bit of an advantage in this regard. You can even take advantage of handleless, touch activated faucets in this day and age. Of course, such models require setting the temperature in a more traditional, hands on way.

The design of the faucet itself, including the finish and materials used, as well as the shape of the faucet, must also be carefully considered. Stainless steel makes for a sleek appearance, but may fit better in more modern looking kitchens, whereas classic bronze fixtures are more at home in a rustic setting. Consider a faucet with high clearance if you like to fill large pots with ease, as well. As you can see, there may be more than you expected to consider when it comes to choosing new kitchen faucets in Denver.
