Why Choose A Wall Mounted Faucet?

By Alfonzo Bordelon

There are two primary ways to fit faucets in your kitchen. Firstly, faucets can be attached directly to the sink or counter-top. The second way is to install a wall mounted faucet.

One of the benefits of a mounted faucet is the way it clears up the space around your sink or counter-top, making it extremely easy to clean. This type of faucet is ideal for free-standing counters and basins, above-counter vessels, wall mounted sinks, and sinks that don’t have pre-drilled fixture holes. They are also good for vintage and antique sinks (which may not have the correct fittings for modern faucets), and minimalist spaces.

As well as making cleaning easier, a wall mounted faucet can make a counter-top look and feel uncluttered, due to their sleek design.

The faucet can be installed at varying heights on the wall, the only thing to consider being that excessive height will create unnecessary splashing. Also, the spout should reach close to the middle of the sink, for the same reason. Usually, this kind of faucet is set-up with a single control handle, or a two handle, 3 hole fixture. Your choice between these depends mainly on the decor of your kitchen, and the styles that the faucets are available in.

The prices of wall mounted faucets can vary. As with any home improvement product, you often get what you pay for. Going for the cheapest option means you will have a product that may not last extremely long, and you could spend extra money on repairs, or replacement.

A fine idea is to look for trusted, name-brand manufacturers who offer quality products, with good warranties. Typically, faucets cost from about $50-$200 for a chrome finish, and around $150 for nickel or polished brass.

Lastly, an important thing to consider when choosing a wall mounted faucet for your kitchen is the style. Faucets are open in numerous colors and materials which cater to whatever decor your home happens to be.

Faucets are always made from brass, nickel, stainless steel, pewter or ceramic, and are finished in a variety of ways such as chrome, matte, colored or even gold-plated. Also, they are made in a wide variety of styles like traditional, modern, contemporary or Victorian.

It is a fine idea to spend time researching online, and asking experts at hardware stores, to ensure you choose the faucet that is ideal for your kitchen. I hope this article helps you in your decision making.
