There’s a reason why the kitchen is called the heart of the home. It’s a hub of activity: family gatherings, friends visiting and good food to be made. That’s why it’s important that a kitchen should be inspiring, warm, inviting, and most importantly, functional.
When designing or remodeling a kitchen, small details like the kitchen faucet can easily get overlooked. A faucet is a faucet, right? Not so! The kitchen sink sees a lot of activity and there’s nothing worse than struggling at the kitchen sink with a big pot or trying to fill a coffee carafe or kettle when you’re in a hurry.
A pull-down faucet is a perfect solution for kitchen needs. It offers accessibility, convenience and complements most kitchen designs. Here are our top reasons why a spring pull-down kitchen faucet is what everyone needs.
1. Spring Pull-Down Faucets Are Convenient
A spring pull-down faucet is the most convenient way to do dishes and clean up a kitchen. Due to the flexibility of a pull-down faucet, it can be positioned lower in the sink, allowing homeowners to clean tough-to-reach spots in their kitchen sinks. This makes for a thorough clean that’s easy.
Due to the high arc of a spring pull-down faucet, filling pots and kettles are easy. It’s positioned much higher than an average stationary kitchen faucet, so homeowners don’t have to try to wedge in bottles, kettles or pots to fill or clean.
2. No Dishwasher? No Problem!
No dishwasher? That’s not a problem with a spring pull-down faucet. Those hard-to-reach dishes that are near-impossible to wedge into the sink under a regular faucet are no problem with a spring pull-down faucet. All you have to do is pull the faucet and angle it into the pot or pan and voila! Clean dishes without breaking a sweat, saving you lots of frustration.
This ease of use also makes a spring pull-down kitchen faucet a great option for smaller spaces like condominiums and apartments. For those multi-family residences where a dishwasher won’t fit, a spring pull-down kitchen faucet can be the perfect solution.
3. Choose Your Finish
Since spring pull-down kitchen faucets are so popular, homeowners and designers aren’t limited to classic chrome. There are plenty of finish options available with something for every kitchen design.
Pioneer’s brushed nickel finish is a perfect choice for classic and traditional kitchen designs but still works in a modern or zen kitchen (because who doesn’t want zen). If you’re looking for something a bit edgier, matte black is a stunning look that doesn’t overpower the kitchen design. And of course, traditional chrome is timeless and elegant.
It’s the look of a spring pull-down faucet that is part of what makes it so popular. It’s not just handy, but it’s stunning, in any finish.
4. Spring Pull-Down Faucets Are Easy to Maintain
While a spring pull-down faucet might feel like the height of sophistication and luxury, they are incredibly low-maintenance. Just do what you would with a regular faucet, and you’ll get the most out of it.
While maintenance of a spring pull-down faucet varies slightly from finish to finish, there are a few key rules to follow, but they’re really easy. Most faucets can be cleaned with a quick wipe down on a daily basis, and with a mild soap and warm water solution on a weekly basis to break down grease and grime.
However, over time mineral buildup can harm any faucet type, which requires a little stronger solution, like a diluted mixture of water and vinegar. But make sure the finish can handle this. Always best to check the literature that comes with a faucet.
