Pull-out v Pull-down Kitchen Faucets
Kitchen faucets come in a vast array of styles. Many of the style choices have to do with the layout of the faucet, the finish, and the design. However, other options revolve around the practical use of the faucet.
One such choice is whether a faucet features a pull-out or pull-down design. Both the pull-out and the-pull down kitchen faucet offer unique sets of benefits. Shop and compare Kingston Brass’s variety of kitchen faucets and check out the pros and cons below.
Pull-out and pull-down faucets do have commonalities. The basic structure of these two models is extremely similar. Both faucets feature spray hoses that rest inside the spout when not in use.
Also, both faucet types come in an array of finishes, including bronze, copper, stainless steel, chrome, and nickel. Each comes with the option of either a single or double handle as well.
While these two faucet types do share numerous similarities, there are also unique benefits to the two different styles.
The Benefits of Pull-out Faucets
A pull-out faucet features a spray hose that rests inside the faucet spout at an upward angle. This spray hose can be pulled out of the spout when in use.
The benefit of a pull-out faucet is that it uses a much shorter spout. This is ideal for kitchens with smaller or shallow sinks and limited space.
Additionally, because the spout is much shorter than a pull-out faucet it allows you to pull the sprayhead much farther than a pull-down faucet. This long hose is very maneuverable and can even reach counter distance to spray a large pot. Pull-out faucets also make a great choice for double sinks.
The Benefits of Pull-Down Faucets
The pull-down faucet has a similar design to the pull-out faucet except that the spray nozzle pulls down instead of out. For this reason, the pull-down faucet features a taller spout. Due to the taller spout, this faucet has a much shorter spray hose than the pull-out faucet.
The pull-down is a great choice for those who have deep basin sinks. For example, the popular farmhouse-style sink pairs well with a pull-down faucet. These faucets are also extremely useful for filling large pitchers or tall pots. Many people also favor the pull-down faucet for its aesthetics.
