Sinks and Faucets. Tuesday , February 06th , 2018 - 09:07:46 AM
Faucet finish is an important design element that once was overlooked. But new technology and the public‘s widespread appreciation for the overall look in the kitchen and bath have made the faucet an important feature. Any sink in the house becomes another opportunity to introduce a new design element.
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.
Kitchen sinks are typically made from stainless steel, enamel-coated cast iron, solid surfaces and composites. For clients who choose solid surface counters like granite or engineered stone, Isley recommends a stainless steel sink because of its undermount capability. Also if homeowners tend to be hard on sinks (Isley asks clients if they‘re prone to throwing things into their sink), stainless is often the best choice. When shopping for a sink, keep in mind that lower-gauge stainless steel makes for a better quality sink. Some people find stainless steel sinks noisy, but that‘s a problem that can be addressed by choosing a design featuring sound-absorption technology.
