Your faucet does a lot more than simply transport water. It plays a key role in influencing both the efficiency and aesthetic tone of your kitchen. The wrong faucet can waste water and make dishwashing a nightmare, all while throwing off the look of your room. But luckily, rectifying this problem does not need to be difficult. Installing a new faucet is an easy – and economical – way to improve your home. 

If you are looking for a kitchen update, consider one of these five styles of faucet:

1. Water efficient faucet
According to McGill University, the average Canadian uses approximately 329 litres of water everyday at home. Installing water efficient fixtures is one way you can help to reduce this high usage in your own house. These faucets typically reduce the maximum flow rate, lowering the amount of water wasted.  And this strategy does not only help the environment –  it saves you money as well by reducing what you pay in your monthly water bill.  

2. Wall mount faucet
Though the vast number of faucets are made to be mounted on the counter behind the sink, that is not your only option. If you are looking for a chic way to make clean up around the sink simpler, try a wall mount option instead. This option is particularly popular paired with large, single basin farmhouse sinks to create a rustic look. 

A single handle faucet is a convenient option for a well-used kitchen. A single-handle faucet is a convenient option for a well-used kitchen.

3. Single-handle faucet
Sometimes when you are trying to work in the kitchen, your hands are pretty full. Whether you are washing a large pot or trying to rinse some spinach, it can be difficult to manage two handles when turning on and off the faucet. If you find yourself in this situation often, a single-handle faucet could be a smart option for your kitchen.  These models allow you to control both the temperature and flow of the water with a single lever, simplifying their use. 

Single-handle faucets also offers a sleek, modern look to your sink. At your local Wolseley Canada Kitchen & Bath Classics showroom, you can find a variety of options by Baril that might be the perfect choice for your kitchen.  

4. Faucet and soup dispenser duo
If you want to simplify your countertop, consider opting for a faucet with a matching soap dispenser. With both pieces mounted behind your sink, you will never again have to wonder where the soap went when you need it. 

5. Automatic smart faucet
These days, it seems that everything has gone hands-free. Your faucet is no exception. If you enjoy having the latest technology in your kitchen, an automatic smart faucet may be the choice for you. Just place your hand under the head and the water will turn on by itself.
