Switch to a Single Handle Pull Down Faucet
If it’s time to upgrade your kitchen, then you might want to consider changing out the faucet on the sink. A traditional centerset model contains separate knobs for hot and cold water, while a single handle that controls both hot and cold is known as a pull out or pull-down faucet. In today’s super busy germophobic world, does it make sense to stay with a centerset style, or should you go with a single handle pull down?
How many times have you been handling or preparing fresh chicken or pork and need to wash your hands to avoid cross-contamination? With a little nudge from your elbow you could easily turn the water on if you had a single handle faucet, but it’s pretty hard not to contaminate the handles if you’re trying to turn knobs to get the water flowing.
Because the one handle controls both temperature and flow, you save a little bit of time by not having to adjust two handles to get the desired water pressure and temperature. It’s also easier for guests who might use your kitchen faucet but are not familiar with how well the water comes out (think kids opening both handles all the way, accidentally blasting the water so that it sprays all over everything).
Many come with pull-out sprayers, so you still have the flexibility to spray the sinks down as well as rinse out the huge roasting pan that you cooked the turkey in. You’ll also be able to remove stuck-on bits of food from the lasagna pan with a quick spray.
In name brands like Moen, Delta and Kohler, you can match or enhance the rest of the décor with faucets in chrome, nickel, stainless steel, bronze, brass or another finish. If you need ideas where to shop for a new single handle kitchen faucet, try eFaucets, Home Depot or Lowe’s, where you can apply a coupon code to save money on your online order. And then after it’s installed, enjoy the simplicity of its design as you wonder why you didn’t make the switch much sooner.
Utility Sinks, a Helpful Addition to Any Home
Building a new house? If so, you’ll want to think about adding a utility sink in the laundry room or garage. Time after time, you’ll be glad you got one, when you realize how helpful they can be.
A utility sink in the garage allows you to wash your hands before entering the house – think greasy hands from a do-it-yourself oil change, grimy mud from weeding the garden, or rinsing off the splatter after painting some old furniture. Having a sink in the garage also gives you another way to draw water for those times when you need to mix pesticides or food for your flowers, fill up the watering can, or fill up the dog’s outdoor bowl.
Let really dirty or stained garments soak in your laundry utility sink, instead of in your washer. Pet accidents, red wine spills and grass stains can pre-soak before laundering, allowing for a better clean to remove the stains. Utility sinks in the laundry room are also a great place to launder your hand washables, such as lingerie and other delicates.
If you’d like to see what utility sinks are available today, and whether they’d work in your laundry room or garage, visit eFaucets.com or Home Depot to view the possibilities. Once it’s installed and you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.
