Professional Kitchen Faucet Installation NJ
The kitchen faucet’s basic function is to dispense hot and cold water for washing dishes, food and hands. But beyond that it’s a major player in defining the style of your kitchen design. With all the new and old designs, finishes and mounting styles out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed when choosing a faucet. Having the basic information on hand will make things easier. There are many things to consider.
Pull Out Vs Pull Down
Adding a faucet with an attached sprayer is a helpful feature to include in the kitchen. The sprayer allows for a longer reach into pots and pans outside of the sink basin. A pull out sprayer often has a longer hose attached to it, but the faucet itself sits lower in the sink basin. Pull down sprayers are typically attached to an arched faucet, providing higher clearance for deep pots.
Single Vs Dual Handle
Touch Kitchen Faucets
Some kitchen faucets have integrated technology that allow the water to turn on simply by touching the faucet anywhere, with any part of the hand. This feature is most practical when working in the kitchen with dirty, food-covered hands. Kohler kitchen faucets have taken the technology a step further and have created a touchless kitchen faucet. The water turns on simply by waving a hand by the sensor on the faucet.
The benefit of having a single handle kitchen faucet is the easy maneuverability to turn the water on and off while changing the water temperature with a simple nudge of the faucet lever. A dual handle faucet, on the other hand, may be more labor intensive, but the user gains more control of the water pressure and temperature.
