We Americans love our bargains, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Why would anyone want to spend a fortune on something that’s available cheaper somewhere else? Still, if you’re looking at kitchen faucets, this may not be the time to compromise on quality by insisting on the lowest price.
If you look at my information page on this website, you’ll see that you can get into a ton of trouble if the faucet that you buy isn’t very good quality.
There are lots of different factors to look at when you decide how much a kitchen faucet should cost you. Here are some of the things you should think about, in my opinion:
More often than not, kitchen faucets will cost more if they offer more features. If you want to buy something with all of the bells and whistles, you’re going to spend more for it. As an example, I’ve reviewed some touchless models that you can check out. These faucets for sure will cost more money than the ones that don’t offer this feature.
So, while you’re shopping around for faucets, I’d advise you to give some thought to how important it is to have the ability to turn on the water just using motion sensors. Whatever your priorities are, it’s a good idea to make a list of the things you’re looking for in a kitchen faucet.
Faucet designs have improved a lot recently. Once upon a time, your kitchen faucet was just a background object whose purpose was purely functional. These days, customers are expecting the humble faucet to look good and be part of the overall style of the kitchen, and the manufacturers have taken this to heart in their designs.
As always, when you are shopping around for your faucet, don’t forget that if you’re looking for something in an unusual color, or with a specific shape that’s a bit different from most models, you’re probably going to pay a little more.
In these pages, you’ll find reviews of several different faucet types. I’ve included the familiar two-handled faucets as well as one-handled pull-down and pull-out models. If you’re just stumbling on this site now and haven’t looked around yet, I’ll give you a little hint: two-handled faucets tend to be the cheapest ones, just because the technology isn’t very complicated.
The choice of what kind of faucet to buy is entirely yours. Just take the time to think about exactly what you need, and you’ll be less likely to get dazzled by all of the different features that you may never even use. Remember that a design that looks great on your screen may not look good in the context of the rest of your kitchen.
