Bar Faucet: The Kitchen’s Best Friend

It’s where you socialize, prepare food, watch the evening news, go over homework and enjoy family time. Oh, and eat meals, too.

The kitchen has evolved into a social center, study hall, family gathering hub and one of your home’s most important entertaining rooms.

The list of tasks we perform in the kitchen boggles the mind. With today’s fast-paced lifestyle and demanding schedules, it’s the little extras that can make the difference between stress and comfort. That’s where a bar faucet can really help.

What exactly is a bar faucet and how is it different from your kitchen faucet? What kind of handle options are available? The answers are here.

Accompanying bar sinks, bar faucets are designed specifically to perform the extra tasks your busy kitchen demands. Traditionally, bar faucets are svelte and smaller than a standard kitchen faucet, simply because the bar sink is typically not as large as your kitchen sink. But that won’t keep your this fixture from doing anything your kitchen faucet would do.

These fixtures typically have a bit more flair and decorative design elements, like more curves, stylish ingredients, and very often a higher spout for an eye-catching appearance. This might be a smaller fixture, but it still wants to be noticed.

Most are made of brass (for its resistance to soft-water corrosion and hard-water calcification), but metal faucets are also available. It shouldn’t be too hard to find one, either, since leading plumbing manufacturers like Kohler, Delta, Moen, Hansgrohe and Danze all have bar faucets of nearly every theme.

Like their kitchen faucet counterparts, bar faucets are available in various hole-centers and configurations. And as far as handles, it can come with one or two handles. Handle styles vary, as well, from levers to cross to knobs.

While more and more families are filling their homes with environmentally conscious fixtures, bar faucets are also making their way into the eco-friendly realm.

Your bar faucet should be as dependable and hard-working as you are, while remain entertaining, functional and stunning. With a little planning and some imagination, it will help simplify your kitchen tasks-and your kitchen will thank you.

Until next time, Happy Home Improving!
