For those who want to purchase a new kitchen faucet, the decision on which to buy may be hard. There are so many different types, shapes, colors and handles, that it makes it hard to chose from. Reading up or studying on different types of faucets can help others save time and valuable money. I hope this article helps faucet buyers decide. I am going to list a few that I recommend and why. These would include: Danze, Delta, Grohe, Kohler, Peerless, and the American standard.
The Danze model may be more expensive but it will catch the eyes of your guests. It has that old-timely look and comes in a chrome color and also stainless steel. It is very bendable and can be moved around the sink. At the nozzle area, you can turn the knob for different speeds of water flow in the sprayer. It is equipped with one handle for both the hot and cold. Although it is a little old-fashioned, it has beautiful look and worth the extra cost. The next kitchen faucet is the Delta.
The Delta has a few different shapes and contours. People have different taste, so one may not appeal to another individual. The Delta I prefer has two handles, a sprayer and is stainless steel. It has an older look to it which would make a rustic look in the kitchen stand out. It would be perfect for individual looking to add an older touch to appliances or decorations. One thing which caught my eye is that this faucet will not burn your hands when running hot water. It also does not show fingerprints of those nasty water spots. That is a plus for those who have kids. The next faucet is the Grohe.
The Grohe faucet is very unique. The Grohe nickname for this faucet is the Ladylux3. It is well fit and designed for most, if not all women to love. It has a very elegant, sleek look. It has one handle for the hot and cold. It is not quite as big as the other faucets however. It does catch the eye of guests and serves as a conversation piece in the kitchen. This faucet comes in colors such as: a shiny chrome, stainless steel, and supersteel. This faucet is equipped with a button to switch from spray to flow. It is built to withstand grime and dirt buildup. The material is very strong, durable and will last a very long time compared to others. The only downfall I could find is that the spout may be a little too thick and does not move so easily. Other than that, it is a beautiful piece. The next faucet I recommend is the Kohler.
The Kohler faucet is used without touching. I love this idea and for those who have children, this should sell you on how it helps to save water and energy. It is costly, which is a reason why some individuals do not purchase this faucet. This faucet is very elegant, pretty, and has a small, single handle. It does come in a variety of colors including: a stunning solid steel color or solid steel with black accents, or a shiny, sparkling chrome with or without black accents. This faucet does not use batteries and does come on just because someone was to be nearby. To activate, all that needs to be done is to run a hand or item under the faucet. The water will immediately begin to run. It is a great way to help prevent the spread of germs and diseases. It is very durable and shuts off automatically. The next on my list is the Peerless faucet.
The Peerless faucet is chrome in color, and a pretty, yet modern faucet. It has two handles compared to others only having one. It has a sprayer on the side of the handle as well. The handles are a little larger than some of the others. The cost of this faucet is not as costly as others. It is actually slightly lower in costs. The only downside is that it does find faults against hard water after a long period of time. It does come with a warranty for a lifetime, which is one thing a lot of homeowners and appliance buyers look for. The final faucet is called the American Standard.
The American Standard faucet is stainless steel. One thing I found interesting is that the faucet can actually be pulled down for use. It is equipped with one handle for hot and cold. The spray works on the faucet head when pulled down. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. The handle for this faucet can be mounted on either side. This faucet gives the kitchen a modern look and it is classy. It is protected against tarnish and corrosion. A great feature that I found is this faucet has a memory feature. It can remember the setting of hot or cold when turned off and on.
When planning to purchase a new kitchen faucet, it can be hard to decide which to choose from. Some things to consider is the style of the kitchen and find a faucet that would accent or compliment that style or color. The color of the faucet is another thing to consider. Also, how many handles, whether it be one or two, and if the faucet is to have a sprayer or not is considered. A big factor is pricing to consider. For the more expensive faucets, someone could get the touchless one, which prevents the spread of germs. For the cheaper one, it would be a more modern, simple look.
Regardless of how the faucets look, or the price of the faucets, the important thing to consider is to make sure you are happy with the purchase and that it will last a long time. Looks, color, pricing, and warranty are all important factors to consider when faucet hunting.
