Types of Kitchen Faucets That Experts Recommend

An excellent kitchen faucet may be used for cooking, cleaning dishes and filling pots and is very essential for dinner preparation. There are spray heads, double and single-handle faucets, and sensor kitchen sink faucets for enhanced water flow and easier cleaning, as well as varied finishes such as stainless steel, to complete your kitchen decor in style. These are functionally designed and may make a difference in your kitchen area. All faucets come with aerator that minims air thereby resulting in a foam flow.

The reason for your purchase will primarily determine the types of faucets you choose. Filling pots and scrubbing the sink is best done with pull-down and pullout faucets, while a bridge faucet has two levers instead of one to control the temperature. This article enlists different types of faucets, their benefits, regardless of the kitchen size.

1.   Single Lever Faucets:

The single-lever faucet is just what it sounds like: it has one handle that controls both the temperature and pressure of the water. Single lever faucets are user-friendly as the installation is simple and requires drilling only one hole. Also, the single-lever faucets are an excellent option for small sinks as they don’t occupy much space.

2.   Quarter Turn Faucets:

Ceramic discs are used in quarter-turn faucets, which require only a turn to provide full flow. Because quarter turn faucets have such low friction, they are ideal for people with arthritis, a weak grip, the elderly, and children. They're also helpful if your hands are unclean because you can turn them on using the back of your hand or your elbow.

3.   Sensor Faucets:

Sensor faucets operate by detecting movement using infrared rays.  Pre-setting the flow rate also prevents the user from picking a flow rate that is overly powerful, resulting in less splashing and a cleaner kitchen.

It is not easy to choose a kitchen sink faucet. The sheer number of types, materials, and finishes available, as well as their pricing, might be overwhelming. You'll be using your new faucet for quite some time, so you might as well enjoy it. Also, you may check out CERA's different types of faucets.
