If you want to give your kitchen a new look, an item you cannot avoid changing is the kitchen faucet. Faucets are not very expensive products and with so many designs and styles offered by the various companies, you will have no problem getting one that you like and is within your budget. However, the problem you might face is deciding on the style that you want. If you want to get something more unique, a good suggestion is getting the bridge kitchen faucets.
These faucets are great if you are looking for a faucet with a modern and classy outlook. Once you have installed one of these bridge kitchen faucets to your sinks, it becomes more than just a device which can dispense water for you when you need it. It is more like a fixture that enhances the overall look of your kitchen instead. In addition, you also have a variety of designs and styles to choose from as there are many companies manufacturing these products.
Before you head off to your local hardware store to buy the first bridge kitchen faucet you can lay your hands on, there are some considerations which you should ponder over first.
1. Does your current sink match the new design?
Even though you might like the bridge faucet, it does not mean it will definitely go well with your old kitchen sink. If you do not take the design of the sink into considerations, you will meet with other problems such as a mismatch between the two items, as well as not being able to fit the faucet into the holes of the sinks properly.
2. Will the holes fit?
If you intend to fix the faucets on your own, you have to first understand the make and design of the sink. One important point you need to take note of is the number of holes a sink has. A typical kitchen sink can have between one to five holes at the bottom. A single holed sink will only allow a single handle faucet to be fitted in so if you have an old and traditional sink, it is likely to have only hole.
In this case, you are not likely to be able to fit the bridge kitchen faucet into your old sink. You will have to consider choosing a bar faucet instead. Alternatively, you will need to get a new sink. In order not to purchase something that you might have no use for, it is best that you first inspect your sink to see how many holes it has.
Installing bridge kitchen faucets are indeed a beautiful and attractive addition to your kitchen but you need to know what to expect and prepare beforehand so that you do not make the wrong choice.
