Faucet Type

There are two types of faucets, deck-mount, and wall-mount. A deck-mount faucet attaches to a countertop while a wall-mount faucet is attached to the wall. Both of them function identically, but there are different optimal environments for each one. If you want a wall-mounted sink and faucet, make sure that it can be installed low enough that there’s no splashing, but high enough to still have room for your hands to maneuver. With a deck-mount faucet, you don’t have many limitations with positioning and sink size.



Next, determine what type of handles you want your kitchen faucet to have. You can have two rotating handles, one rotating handle, or even a hands-free, touch-activated faucet. A popular choice that has come about recently is the hands-free faucet. These variations are highly convenient for the user and can seamlessly blend in with any kitchen design concept.



If you want a faucet that matches the rest of your kitchen, choose a finish that matches your cabinets and their hardware. If you’re looking to differentiate your faucet from the rest of your kitchen, choose a finish that is the complete opposite of your other appliances. Some of the most popular faucet finishes are:

  • Polished nickel
  • Satin nickel
  • Chrome
  • Stainless steel
  • Matte black


Additional Features

Looking for your faucet to do more for you than just produce water? If you want to enjoy drinking water right from the faucet, you can add an in faucet filter. If you want to eliminate the hassle and inconvenience of keeping a soap bottle on top of your sink you can install a soap dispenser. Lastly, if you want hot water without having to wait for it to boil, consider adding a hot water dispenser.
