Do you feel overwhelmed when choosing a kitchen faucet? You didn’t know there were so many options and you don’t know where to start? We’ve heard it plenty of times in our showroom: “I didn’t know there were so many kitchen faucets.” It can be difficult to choose one faucet over another without knowing what you want or need. We’ve compiled a list of Kitchen Faucets FAQs we hear most often to help you get started.
Are all finishes the same price?
No, for the most part every finish is a different price. Chrome is usually the least expensive while golds and matte blacks are the priciest.
Why would I buy a faucet from Keidel rather than a big-box store?
The big-box retailers offer cheaper faucets because they are manufactured cheaper. With plastic parts instead of metal, they will not last as long. They also do not have all of the same options for styles, finishes, and brands that Keidel carries.
What kind of technology upgrades can my faucet come with?
Moen has a Power Boost™ option to provide 50% more spray power with the push of a button. There are also hand-free options. You can choose to wave your hand near the faucet or touch the neck with any part of your arm to turn it on.
Can I change from a bridge faucet to a single hole?
Yes, but you are going to have to choose how you want to cover the existing homes. You can add a soap dispenser, side sprayer, and/or faucet home cover.
Note: To go from a single hole faucet to a bridge is a little more complicated. You will have to drill holes in your countertop. We suggest talking with a certified plumber before starting your project.
What’s the difference between a bar and kitchen faucet?
Bar faucets ten do be shorter and do not have the same capabilities as kitchen faucets. Most of them do not have the option of moving or pulling the spout out/down. Many of them come in the same styles and finishes as their kitchen counterparts, though.
