Sinks and Faucets. Tuesday , February 06th , 2018 - 09:05:27 AM
But for aesthetics? "The trend is to customize" Judd says. Special finishes, such as brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze, outsell chrome by a wide margin — especially for remodels and do-it-yourself projects, where people typically spend between $100 and $300 on faucets.
"For something you touch several times a day, why not pick a finish for your faucet that will make you feel good? People will notice if you put in an unimpressive faucet," says Peter LaBau, a Charlottesville, Va.-based architect whose book The New Bungalow Kitchen, from Taunton Press, offers great ideas for quality kitchen design. Peter just remodeled his own master bath, for which his finish of choice was nickel. "I‘m a big fan," he says. When bonded to brass, nickel plating reveals a golden luster that standard chrome plating does not.
Pull-out faucets — spouts with sprayers attached — reach anywhere in a two- or even three-bowl sink, fill large stockpots, coffeemakers, and buckets outside the sink, and can replace a separate side sprayer. Look for one that extends 20 to 24 inches. Pull-down spray faucets let you adjust the water flow, choosing between an aerated stream and a spray. Some offer a second, more powerful spray setting for intense cleaning.
