Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 09:01:42 AM
"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.
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.
Faucets can be divided into single handle and double handles and also can be divided into single type, double type and triple type according to their structure. Double type faucets can be connected to hot and cold wires at the same time and usually used in bathroom vessels and kitchen faucets with hot water. Triple type faucets can not only connect to the hot and cold wires but also can connect to the showers, and usually used in the faucets of bathtub. The body of faucets usually refer to the tubes which were usually made of bronze but has been replaced by brass. Copper contents of the high grade faucets is usually higher that 85%. Body of import faucets usually has no stomata, but the faucets made in our country lack of pressure, wear and corrosion resistance because of the lag of the price and technology and the limitation of surface frost process.
