If you're doing a kitchen remodel, you may want to choose a pullout faucet for your new sink. This type of fixture combines the sleek look of a single faucet with the adaptability of a movable hose. The hose is actually stored inside the faucet fixture, so that you can pull it out whenever you need it: to fill a large pot or bucket, to concentrate the spray on a hard to reach dish, to rinse a bowl of fresh fruit, or even to spray down your counter tops.
Pullout faucets are designed for premier comfort and maneuverability in the kitchen, so they are perfect choice for anyone who loves to cook and try new recipes. Depending on the style you choose, this type of faucet may have an array of spray functions and a spout with a particularly high arch, which means that it can adapt to whatever job you're trying to accomplish.
Some of the most popular manufacturers of pullout faucets include Moen, Delta, Grohe, Pfister, American Standard, and Danze. Prices range from around $75 all the way up to over $2,000, so there are great options in every budget category.
Pullout faucets are made from a variety of materials to match your usage, lifestyle, and the look and feel of your kitchen. Choose from stainless steel or polished chrome, the most common and versatile materials, both of which have beautiful finishes to choose from. Brass, black, white, natural, nickel, chrome, gold, and bronze are all beautiful options that will pull together the look of your sink and appliances.
Replacing a kitchen faucet is a fairly simple job that can be done in about an hour or so. After removing the old faucet (making sure to first disconnect the garbage disposal), simply follow the instructions that come with your new pullout faucet. If you're not handy with home repairs, any plumber can help you make the switch.
If you're looking for a new faucet for your kitchen that combines functionality and ease of use with a dramatic, sleek style statement, look no further than a pullout faucet.
