Whenever you think about new faucets during your process of redesigning your kitchen, make sure you consider it as one major topic. Whether your kitchen ideas will succeed depends a lot on the kitchen faucets and the way they are installed into the sink. So give yourself a little time and lets see what types of faucets you might want to consider.

Different groups of faucets

Generally speaking, two basic groups of kitchen faucets can be considered. Wall mounted or sink-mounted. In the past wall mounted faucets where quite common, whilst nowadays the bulk of the faucets are directly mounted on top of the kitchen sinks.

For each of the above mentioned groups a huge variety is available on the market:

Faucet with single control lever are probably the most common. Mostly installed directly into the kitchen sinks, they bevel from left to right. With only one control handle the quantity and the temperature are controlled.

Faucets with pull out spray head can be directed directly into the sink. This way the water is sprayed exactly where it is needed. Pulling the spray head back into the faucet, lets it work like a standard one.

Wall mounted kitchen faucets tend to have a rather long hose towards the sink. Available with single-control or two handle control, the wall mounted solution allows more space on top of the worktop.

Additionally other types of faucets are available, such as gooseneck shapes if you need to fill large buckets in a kitchen sink. Check with your kitchen designer for the different options for your kitchen. Additionally, ask your local plumber to get feedback on quality of certain kitchen faucets and brands he might recommend from his experience.

When buying a faucet, you want to choose one that not only looks great, but is convenient, safe and durable. Your faucet should be drip-free for its lifetime under normal usage.
