Sinks and Faucets. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 09:06:10 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.
Schlesser advises consumers renovating their kitchens — or just looking to update the faucet — to visit a kitchen design showroom as well as the chain home stores to compare the products and "feel the difference." A good fixture should have substantial heft and the best materials even in the details: the latest ceramic disc valve rather than plastic to control water flow, and a heavy-duty woven sprayer hose instead of vinyl.
Brass, copper, chrome, nickel, gold-plated, oil-rubbed metals, matte or shiny finish, a smooth satin sheen and even faucets with texture are now available to consumers in all price ranges. In terms of sheer sales volume, says Judd Lord, director of industrial design for Delta Faucet Co., chrome is still the leader.
