When designing a kitchen you may not automatically think that the look of the faucet adds much value to the overall look. After all, it’s a functional piece. But think of other items in the house that could be seen as merely functional – lighting, for instance – and you’ll realize that the humble faucet needs just as much attention as some of its larger kitchen counterparts. Think of it as the fine detail to finish the piece, just as a fashion designer finishes their work with well thought-out embellishments and accessories.
The faucet style in your kitchen may depend on your individual needs and the layout of your sink area. Do you need a spray feature, for example? What height will it sit at and how much room is there? The answer to these questions will in turn affect the overall look of the faucet design that you choose. You also need to consider the style of your kitchen. A chef-style pull out chrome faucet may work if you’re aiming for the look of a professional kitchen, but it would look out of place in a rustic style kitchen, where a brushed bronze or polished nickel piece will work better.
