Faucets come in all shapes and sizes. Here are a few things to consider when finding the faucet that’s right for you.
Style Avoid a tiny faucet on a big, bold sink, and vice-versa. Also make sure that the style, such as contemporary or classic, matches that of the sink. Look for a faucet that directs water into the center of the bowl. For a large sink consider a tall gooseneck or one with a pull-out spray. If the faucet’s too short it may not reach far enough. Make sure your new faucet matches the correct hole drillings in your sink, 4″ centers, 8″ centers, or single hole.
Handles How many and what type of handles do you desire? Our designs range from traditional cross handles to contemporary single-lever and two handle models. Lever handles in both single and dual control designs are not only stylish, they’re also the easiest to use for people with smaller or less flexible fingers.
Mounting To keep things interesting, we offer a variety of faucets that mount directly to the sink, a faucet deck, countertop, or wall. As with hole patterns, make sure that your faucet is compatible with your sink especially when it comes to vessel sinks which require tall countertop mounted vessel faucets or wall-mounted faucets.
Consider how a new faucet will last. Or, more importantly, how long it will last without dripping. Faucets should offer long-term performance and be drip-free for life. Ceramic Disc Valving utilizes discs made of hardened ceramic, a durable material that won’t wear out and won’t leak even under the toughest water conditions.
Select bathroom and kitchen faucets feature a pull out or pull down spout in which the end of the spout of the faucet can be ‘pulled out’ from the rest of the spout similar to a side spray. These faucets allow you to bring the water flow to where you need it in the sink.
If you’re concerned with conserving water, look for faucets with the ClickMove Technology. By providing a resistance midway when lifting the lever, this technology gives you better water volume control, saving you precious water.
Unlike conventional mixers, ClickMove technology releases cold water instead of warm water upon lifting the lever. This saves you precious energy as it prevents the boiler from heating up, resulting up to 30% energy savings. To get hot water, you only need to move the lever to the left.
