With so many faucets to choose for kitchens and utility areas like bar sinks, it’s not always easy for homeowners to narrow down the right choices. Two-handle single-hole faucets are fabulous designs that make great use of small spaces. Some homeowners are used to the single-handle designs that swivel left or right to adjust the temperature. Discover the benefits of a two-handle single-hole faucet before planning a kitchen design or renovation.
Adapted for a Single-Hole Opening
Many smaller kitchen sinks and bar prep sinks feature only a single-hole cutout for a faucet connection. It’s possible to cut a hole in a metal sink, but it’s not recommended for many porcelain or fire clay sinks. A two-handle single-hole faucet is designed to provide the convenience of two taps without needing two holes. This also eliminates the difficulty of matching the right spacing between two or more holes as well, which are common issues with bathroom and kitchen sinks alike.
Delicate Control Over the Temperature
Two-handle faucets are popular for giving the user complete control over the water temperature. Single-handle faucets are often described as feeling mushy or difficult to adjust just right. Control over the pressure is also less sensitive when dealing with just a single handle. Yet many homeowners buy one under the misconception that a single hole in a sink automatically limits them to a single-handle faucet. A two-handle single-hole faucet offers the convenience of dual taps without the need for a second hole.
Putting in a traditional two-handle faucet means connecting two separate water lines. Since the two-handle single-hole faucet connects to both lines in one base and mixes them inside the fixture, installation goes a little faster. Even if a sink has two holes, the second opening is easily covered with a matching cap.
