If you love to cook then you’ll love our range of kitchen faucets with sprays. Whether you choose a pull-out faucet with rinsing spray or a faucet with professional spray our choice of designs will satisfy even the most discerning chefs
The latest trend in contemporary kitchens is the thick slab countertop effect. While most countertops are normally 2” thick choosing a 3 – 5” thick countertop creates an anchored stately look. Remember to adjust cabinet heights accordingly to make up for the height increase from the thicker countertops.
Mosaics and Focal Points The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
What is the difference between a pull-out spray and a pull-down spray? Both offer the same features and versatility. The difference is in the action required to extract the hand-held spray from the faucet spout.
In general if the kitchen faucet has a straight spout you need to ‘pull out’ the spray. If the spout points downwards then you ‘pull down’ to use the spray.
Engineering and technology have made a wide variety of design choices and finishes possible. While most of the following kitchen countertop ideas are durable it’s a good idea to always work with cutting boards and silicone trivets for hot pots. Keep countertop surfaces clean with a non-abrasive soft towel and follow manufacturer or installation guidelines on what products to use to clean and maintain the beauty of your countertops for years.
