Choosing the Right Faucet for Your Kitchen Island
Adding a sink to a kitchen island is a great way to boost its value. More places to wash hands or dishes are always welcome in today’s kitchen. However, not all faucets are a good fit for the smaller spaces of kitchen islands. Match one of our kitchen faucets to your kitchen island today with these hints for selection.
Accommodating Pots and Dishes
Consider what you plan to wash in the island sink before picking a faucet height and depth. Pre-rinse faucets are best for washing dishes of all kinds, while simple low profile faucets are better for vegetable washing and handwashing only. Leaning over the counter to reach the sprayhead from a low profile faucet can cause strain on your back after washing dishes by hand. Consider ergonomics when choosing the height and spray configuration of your new kitchen faucet.
The closer the spout tip to the bottom of the sink, the less chance of water splashing out and onto the counters. Yet low profile faucets don’t allow sufficient space for large pots to fit under the spout. Balance the need for splash control with space for dishwashing with a faucet featuring a pulldown sprayhead.
