If anyone ever asks me to tell the best and worst part about finished products, then I’ll say both are the same, variations.
You might be thinking that why I am thinking it that way. But the fact is, the more option you get, the more confusions you will encounter on your way to make the final buying decision.
Trust me, I’ve been there and so is many other people. The same kind of confusions is often faced when it comes to choosing kitchen faucets.
The game of variations is going on here as well. But in a good way, of course. So, today I am thinking about telling you some of types of kitchen faucet that has been ruling the world of kitchen.
Let me tell you about some of those amazing kitchen faucets.
Types of Kitchen Faucets
There are several types of kitchen faucets that widely being used in kitchens all over the world. Let me tell you about them.
Single-Hole Kitchen Faucet
If you check, most probably in most of the kitchen the kind of faucet you will see is the single-hole kitchen sink.
Like the traditional way, it is usually installed in the single hole in the countertop and nothing with a complicated design.
The advantageous aspect of this faucet is they are really easy to use and comes with simple procedures.
All you need is a single whole for getting it installed. Most importantly, it is easy to get from any regular shops around.
The only funny thing is, it is too simple and has nothing interesting on the list of features.
Kitchen Faucet with Side Sprayer
Kitchen faucet with side sprayer surely one of the faucets that renders more facilities than regular faucets.
In case anyone with a hygiene issue can use this one as they won’t have to buy spare hose to maintain their kitchen hygiene.
The advantageous aspect of this faucet is, as we mentioned above, its sprayer that not only helps you to maintain proper hygiene, but also renders the scope for two people work at the same time at the sink.
Moreover, you can move it to cover distant areas around the sink.
The drawbacks are you are not assured that there won’t be water splashing and unlike the single hole faucet, you are going to need more than one hole over here.
Double-hole Kitchen Faucet
There is nothing much different with this kitchen sink when it comes to comparing with single-hole kitchen faucet. The major difference between them is it is a double-handle faucet that renders the facility of getting both hot and cold water.
From the name you can understand that, this faucet has multiple holes as it provides both hot and cold water.
The advantageous aspect of this faucet is, you can get both hot and cold water at the same time, as I have mentioned above and it is clearly perfect family use.
Both hot and cold water is indicated on the faucet, so there is no possibility of getting confused.
It doesn’t have any major drawback except in requires more than one whole, though it shouldn’t be considered as a drawback.
Pull-out Kitchen Faucet
The most interesting part about the pull-out faucet is its detachable spray head that you can pull out for using on your regular chores on the sink. This flexibility has made it more unique.
This faucet renders the scope for diversified usage. It not only eases up the cleaning tasks, but also filling up water pots and bottles, even if they are at a distance from the sink.
Another good thing about this faucet is they are highly available in almost every market and shops.
They also available in different materials, so it is pretty convenient for you to choose one on your preferred material.
The advantageous part of this faucet is it is highly flexible from a user perspective and for both cooking and cleaning it can be considered as a great help.
The only drawback with this one is it arises the possibility of splashes.
Pull-down Kitchen Faucet
There is no major differences between the Pull-up and Pull-down kitchen faucet, but just some changes in the design. Otherwise the features are pretty much the same.
The prime feature that differentiates between pull-up and pull-down kitchen sinks is they spray head needs to be pulled down instead of pulling up like the pull-up faucet.
But the absence of a separate hose pipe has a negative impact over its flexibility and has minimized it to a certain extent.
But the bright side is it has also maximized the water not being splashed much. It has eased up keeping the sink area more clean.
The drawbacks I’ve noticed on pull down kitchen sink are the limitation of stretching. The other one is not anything major, but I think they are better for bigger sinks rather than the small one.
These are the major types of faucets mostly used in kitchens all over the world.
There some other types as well that has interesting designs with unique features but yet these are the mostly used and convenient faucet so far which are also quite easy to install at the same time.
I hope this article has been able to help you to get you an overall idea on types of kitchen faucet.
