The kitchen renovation was coming to an end! We needed a kitchen sink.
We bought this beautiful silver Delta faucet.
Some things to think about when picking a kitchen faucet:
Think about the hardware color in the rest of your kitchen – and even the rest of your house.
After seriously debating between silver and bronze, we went with silver throughout the house.
We had selected stainless steel appliances (more on those later this week!) and kitchen cabinet handles that were muted silver versus shiny. So, we went with a brushed nickel finish on our faucet versus chrome.
I couldn’t wait to see the whole white and silver kitchen come together!
Sleek vs. spiral
The spiral look is growing in popularity. While I like it in certain kitchens, I have more of a traditional decorating style. I liked the sleek look of the Delta faucet we picked out.
The spray option built right into the main faucet spout is wonderful. The Delta faucet we chose had a button on the back of the faucet head, making it easy to flip on when washing dishes.
The spray option is especially helpful on dishes with gunk stuck on them – we use it to wash out our smoothie glasses each morning, too – otherwise all those little raspberry seeds stick to the side of the glass.
I love a faucet with a nice tall arc to ensure there’s enough room to wash any big pots or cutting boards without splashing water all over. A deep sink helps with that, too!
Pull down spout
We had a pull down spout in our Cincinnati kitchen, and I loved it. It’s key when washing dishes or rinsing out the sink.
In the kitchen, I prefer the look of a one-handle faucet. I like the sleek look, and it’s easier to adjust the temperature of the water when washing vegetables or dishes.
How many handles do you like on your faucets?
I’m not one for unnecessary clutter on kitchen counters. I loved the idea of a built-in soap dispenser versus having a soap bottle sitting out on the counter.
Our soap dispenser came with our faucet.
If I had thought about this more in advance, I would have put two soap dispensers in – one for dish soap and one for hand soap. Something to think about if you’re considering a kitchen renovation!
All we had left to pick out for the kitchen was the appliances!
