More and more Americans are revamping their homes, so you are not alone in your desire to give your home a few changes. Sure, everyone dreams of those large remodeling jobs, but all changes do not have to be so elaborate. Updating your kitchen faucet can give your kitchen a great look, and it won’t cost much. Still, choosing the right faucets can be a challenge, but the following guide will help.
Tips to Choose the Right Faucet
Kitchen faucets are pretty important and can definitely spruce up the kitchen if you pick the right one, but it goes beyond aesthetics. You want to make sure you give yourself a lot of choices, so make sure you have an ample amount of choices when you contact your Denver Metro area plumber.
The key is to figure out how you will use your faucet to find the best one, so consider some of the following tips:
Handling the Faucet
One of the most important decisions that you can make about your faucet is whether you want the operation to be one-handed, two-handed, or completely hands-free.
The one-handed option means that you can change the temperature of your water by moving one handle to the left or right, depending on the temperature you want. The two-handed options mean there is one handle for cold water and a second for warm water.
The last option (and one of the most innovative) is the hands-free option, which detects your hand’s motion to get hot or cold at your will. Choose the one that you feel would work best for you and your family.
High or Low
Another important question to ask yourself is how much space you need in your kitchen. Think about how you work to figure this out. Faucets with a tall arc are great for those who often have to fill up or clean up large pots. This is also a good option for those who usually have to deal with large piles of dirty dishes.
Those who like to clean up as soon as something is dirty do not have to worry about tall piles of dirty dishes and may only need a short arc faucet.
Of course, there is also a flexible spout or pulldown spray wand faucet, just in case you need a little more flexibility. Again, knowing how you normally use your faucet should help you make this choice.
The last thing you want to think about is aesthetics. There are three basic looks that you have to think about like the traditional, modern, or transitional faucets. The traditional has the most classic looks and usually give your kitchen a vintage-like look.
Transitional faucets have a touch of vintage but come with modern undertones that allow you to have a little bit of both. These are perhaps some of the most neutral options, but they work with any kitchen style.
The modern look is definitely for the homeowners who want their homes to look as new as possible. Those of you who are looking to update the stove, microwave, and other appliances in your kitchen might do well by choosing modern-looking faucets.
You should also think about color and what you want your faucet to do for your kitchen. Choosing a color that is similar to the overall look of your kitchen will offer your kitchen uniformity and help the faucet blend in.
Choosing a bold color that accents your kitchen will definitely make your faucet stand out, giving your kitchen a more dramatic change.
