No kitchen is complete without a stylish, durable, and functional kitchen faucet to tackle dishes, help with food prep, and clean up kitchen messes.
However, there are a lot of choices on the market, and picking out the perfect faucet can sometimes seem a daunting task. When choosing a faucet, there are
a few important aspect to consider, including the depth of your counter, your kitchen layout, the type of faucet that is currently installed (if replacing
an old faucet), and of course, the style of faucet that you would like.
The depth of your kitchen counter or the layout of your kitchen may put constraints on the type or size of faucet that you get, purely because of the
amount room you have to work with and how it’s configured. For example, a bridge faucet or single handle kitchen faucet would not take up much space, and
may be easy to fit in any kitchen; however, other designs such as a wall mounted kitchen faucet will require more counter depth and a specific room
orientation (you can’t wall mount a faucet if there isn’t a wall directly behind the sink). Other designs such as a commercial style pull down faucet would
also take up substantial counter depth and vertical space, so it it’s important to consider every dimension before making your faucet choice.
If replacing an old faucet, it can be helpful to consider what type of faucet is currently in use. While you don’t have to go with the same type of faucet
as the existing one, it can certainly make it easier in terms of installation to opt for one that uses the same number of holes in the counter or wall.
Drilling new holes in some materials such as marble or stone countertops can be difficult and costly, and there may be issues with patching the old holes,
so you may want to consult with a professional if you are making any big changes.
