Looking at Wall Mounted Kitchen Faucets

Kitchen faucet wall mounts can help create the right look for your home remodeling project. Effective home remodeling requires both big and small decisions. What kind of wall covering and window treatments will look good? What kind of flooring do you want that you can afford? Is it more important to you to remodel your kitchen or your bathroom? Chances are you’ll probably be well along your way on your home improvement project before you decide about your kitchen faucet design, but each part of your remodeling project will have an important impact on the quality of the end result.

Faucet Wall Mounts

Faucet design is a matter of personal preference. Sure, a single-lever ball faucet may afford some convenience and is more likely to need repair, but choosing a faucet design is usually more about what you like than the most reasonable or sensible choice. Not all faucets are created equal. A wall-mounted faucet will usually require longer spouts to achieve a proper basin reach, although the high mount also creates a unique curve and look for the faucet. In addition, for sink faucets it will leave your counter space unencumbered and sleek looking.

Wall-mounted faucets can be a great idea in conjunction with vessel sinks, though these are more common in bathrooms than the kitchen. Rather than have an uncomfortably confined room, a simple wall-mounted sink and faucet combination can really open your counterspace.

Kitchen Faucet Wall Mounts

Wall-mounted kitchen faucets essentially the same thing as any other faucet wall mount, except they’re usually offered with options tailored for the kitchen. An adjustable swing faucet is common to accommodate the double-basin of most kitchen sinks. Naturally, a kitchen faucet wall mount is available in the same materials as any other faucet, including brass, chrome, and nickel. A low kitchen faucet wall mount will look and act more like a standard faucet mount, while a high wall mount will present a more unique downward arc.

Hands-Free Faucets

Since part of the reason to choose a wall-mounted faucet is often the sleek design, you might consider a hands-free faucet wall mount. Not only do these faucets further streamline faucet design, they are ultra-convenient to use, especially for someone with limited mobility, and create a more hygienic bathroom or kitchen since no dirt or bacteria is transferred from your hands to the faucet handles.
