Choosing a kitchen faucet

The kitchen faucet is one of the most important elements that we must consider when we make a reform, because, by the sink faucets is one of the most used parts of the kitchen. To give you an idea: a kitchen faucet is opened at least 15 times a day. Therefore, we must be very careful in your choice.

There are enough types of kitchen faucets, to adapt fully to the needs and spaces each.

What we consider to choose a kitchen faucet?

Location placement

  • On the counter: it depends on where you have the water intake sink. Currently this is the most common type of tap.
  • On the wall: with this model you’ll gain more counter space, consider how far they are hydrants.Previously used a lot, but it is becoming obsolete.

The size sink

  • Sinks to flush small: is best to choose a kitchen faucet with low spout, this way we will win a lot more space and will never be a hindrance.
  • For large sinks: we recommend using removable taps, you can easily reach all corners of the sink.They are also very useful long pipe taps.

Type opening

  • Single – hole: they are taps with two openings, one for hot water and one for cold water. Although they can be a little more uncomfortable than the single lever there are beautiful models with a design magazine.
  • Monomando: you can regulate the water flow and temperature with a single command. Currently, this type of tap is the most common thanks to its good value. Such as the previous picture tap Three .

The type of pipe

  • High spout: with the largest water tube, as mentioned above, it is ideal for large sinks.
