From Danze to Kohler, the pull-out kitchen faucet has been all the rage in the design world. Both homeowners and designers have moved away from the standard faucet with a detached side spray in favor of pull-out models that integrate the two functions into a single unit.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, 14 of out every 15 designers who designed a kitchen over the final three months of 2011 incorporated a pull-out faucet. The look is a modern and sleek faucet that works well with any style. Today, you can find a contemporary pull-out kitchen faucet in a variety of finishes, including chrome, brushed nickel, satin nickel, brass, colors and more.
Homeowners also enjoy its functional purposes for cleaning and cooking. It has never been easier to fill pots. Simply pull the faucet head out, hook it on the side of the pot, and go! Then when full, just slide it over, no lifting it out of the sink. And unlike similar pull-down models, there is less splashing.
If you’re renovating a smaller kitchen, pull-out faucets are an excellent choice where a high arc would overwhelm. They are also great when you have limited height to work with due to above-the-counter cabinetry.
