As more and more people begin to custom-build their own homes, they have a hand in every aspect of the design. Many companies have responded to this demand, even for things you might not expect. Gone are the days of just one type of faucet — now there are quite a few to choose from! Here’s five.
- Old World: The Old World faucet fashion lends an antique or vintage look to any kitchen or bathroom setting. Generally darker in color, these faucets have a rustic look to them.
- Pull-Out: These modern, efficient faucets are generally seen in kitchens more than in the bathroom. These faucets have the ability to be pulled out thanks to a retracting metal hose, allowing for maximum reach. This is particularly ideal for kitchens that have two sinks side by side.
- Industrial: Thanks to the rise in popularity of cooking shows over the last decade, many homeowners are opting for industrial faucets used primarily by cooks and chefs. These faucets are sleek and professional looking, but also are generally higher up to allow for piles of dishes.
- Contemporary: Contemporary faucets are often simple in design, but employ unique geometric styles.
- Hands-Free: These modern faucets are exceptional for their efficiency. They save water and also reduce the spread of germs and other bacteria. Many are activated by simply touching anywhere on the handle, but the more advanced models employ motion or infrared detectors to turn on and off.
As you can see, there are a wide range of faucets to try out! When it’s time to get faucets put in, though, always make sure to work closely with your plumbing company to ensure everything is installed correctly.
