Old Style Tub Faucets – Whether you’re remodeling the whole kitchen and installing new kitchen fittings, or just trying to replace that old fashioned sink, chances are that you are somewhat perplexed by the amount of alternatives available in the marketplace nowadays. Let’s break it down by the most common faucet styles: Single handle kitchen faucets are a really popular standard style kitchen faucet. They look great and range on the low end of the price spectrum. Some like the Delta Collins Faucet includes a matching side spray, which is excellent for cleaning all of the nooks and crannies and filling those big pots. Plus these lever type versions are often very ADA friendly.
Manufacturers have set a lot of stock into these faucets in the recent years, and the wide range of styles and finishes show for it. The style that seems to catch everyone’s attention and pocketbook recently is the high goose neck. This style has a very large clearance for larger things, some of them are able to rotate 180 degrees or longer and usually come with 32″ of their home, so you can water your yard once you get done with the dishes! They are somewhat more pricey like the Delta Pilar Pull-Down Faucet but in case you’re looking for a sweet looking multi-function faucet with the expert’s mentioned previously then look no more.
The two handle faucet is the more stately and refined of its brother in or sister in (not to offend anyone). Depending upon your kitchen motif they could be a great compliment to that Victorian or Victorian type kitchen. A lot of these versions also come from the most popular high goose neck style for optimum clearance and architectural appeal. They range in price from $25 bucks all of the way to $1500, and that means you have got plenty of styles and finishes to choose from. The two handle wall mount faucets come in styles ranging from old country farmhouse like the American Standard Heritage Wall Mount to the super modern contemporary (I am too cool to speak to you) Kohler Karbon Wall-Mount.

These faucet styles have a lot of character and personality, not to mention they’re very functional and great conversation pieces. If you have got some flair on your personality, these faucets may be the best way to go. Another catchy faucet which tends to air on the traditional side is the Bridge Faucet. This is still a two handle faucet, only turned upright with some of the plumbing that’s usually hidden beneath the counter now above-board. Some of these look like they could be the very first faucet ever invented and they probably were designed this way back in the day. Therefore, if you want to go REALLY old college and are planning on having the founding fathers over for dinner, the Pegasus Bridge Style Faucet might be for youpersonally.
That pretty much sums up the main categories to choose from. The last two to mention in this guide would be the Kitchen Pot Filler Faucet and also my personal favorite The Bar Faucet. For the gourmet in the home or whether you’ve got any extra cash to throw around during your remodel, the pot filler is a nifty option. It’s fairly self-explanatory in its own function, therefore no need to explain this one. Last but surely not least is the bar faucet, everything relating to this little man screams entertainment. They are excellent for doubling as another kitchen faucet like the Delta Allora Single Manage Pull-Down Bar/Prep Faucet or they are sometimes the origin of crisp clean water for your home as a Filter Faucet.
