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.
With the great number of faucets on the market, there is a design for everyone. "Style is strictly a personal taste issue," Isley says. He doesn‘t dictate what clients choose design-wise — people like what they like, after all — but he does guide them when it comes to function and finishes. Most faucets use cartridge, ball or ceramic disc valves. A faucet with a ceramic disk valve and solid brass base materials will be the most durable. Though many attractive faucets have two handles, Isley always pushes for single-lever faucets in the kitchen. He also suggests clients include a spray arm for filling pots with water or rinsing the sink, whether it‘s part of the spout or a separate piece. Consider other convenient extras, like a garbage disposal and hot water dispenser.
Esthetics. The most obvious reason for deciding on a granite sink is that it is usually recessed into the countertop, blending beautifully with a granite counter. It also retains its polished finish, he points out. "A granite sink and counters are a perfect complement to the warm, inviting, yet elegant look we strive for in our kitchens," he says.
Flexibility of size. "You can make your granite kitchen sink any size you want; you’re not limited by what the manufacturers have to offer. Most of our ‘trough’ sinks are 6 feet long. We usually limit the depth to 9 inches because anything deeper is not ergonomically comfortable," De Giulio says. Often his company installs granite sinks with multiple levels inside, such as a 4-inch or 6-inch-deep section.
