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.
Accommodating sink accessories. De Giulio Kitchen Design offers a trough granite sink that is made to carry a variety of accessories. Offsets in the granite hold a teak cutting board, which fits over the sink. Underneath and also resting on additional granite offsets is another level of accessories: a colander, a draining rack, and a cutting block holding knives. Holes can be drilled in the back of the sink for any type of faucet accessory. A spray hose is one of the most useful since it helps clean these larger sinks.
There are many factors to consider when choosing a kitchen sink. Think about the countertop first. Different sink materials fit different needs. Optimize your workspace with a variety of options. A solid surface countertop of manmade material, natural stone, concrete or wood will allow for an under-mounted sink installation. This design produces a cross-section view of the countertop and creates a clean, simple line.
"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.
