Planning to buy a kitchen faucet for yourself? Did you know that there is more than one type of Kitchen Faucet available in the market? Yes, you heard me right!

There are different types of Kitchen Faucets which work well for different types of sinks and usage. If you are looking for the perfect Kitchen faucet for your kitchen, then it would be wise to know more about the faucet types and then determine which faucet will be better suited for your kitchen.

Here are a few different types of Kitchen Faucets that you can consider buying for yourself:

1. Single Handle Kitchen Faucet

As the name suggests, this is a type of kitchen faucet which comes with just one handle to regulate the flow and temperature of water. Most of these single handle kitchen handles also come with a single sinkhole for installation.

These type of kitchen faucets are handy as you don’t require the use of two hands but one needs a lot of practice to ensure that they don’t burn themselves when trying to turn the water a little hot.

2. Double Handle Kitchen Faucet

In this type of Kitchen faucet, you have two separate handles to control the water temperature and a user can use a handle to either pour out hot water or cold water as they wish. This is the most commonly used kitchen faucet as it is easy to control the water temperature but is not good for those who would like to multitask while cleaning or washing their dishes.

3. Pull Down Kitchen Faucet

This type of Kitchen Faucet comes with a spray wand that can be pulled down into the sink for easy access which makes it useful for cleaning and washing the dishes in the sink without spilling any water outside.

Pull Down Kitchen Faucet

This Kitchen faucet is particularly useful for people who have a deep sink and can help in covering a lot of area without any splashes. You can also use it to clean the sink itself.

4. Pull Out Kitchen Faucet

A pull out Kitchen Faucet, instead of pulling down the spray wand you can pull out the spray wand towards yourself which makes this kitchen faucet particularly useful in filling tall pots and vessels with water.

They also come with a 360 degrees swivel functionality which makes it easier to use it for cleaning the dishes outside the sink too. This is a great type of Kitchen Faucet for those who have a smaller sized sink.

5. Touchless Kitchen Faucet

As you can guess by the name, this type of Kitchen Faucet doesn’t require you to touch the faucet to turn on the water and control its flow and temperature.

You just move your hand in front of their sensor and they will start pouring out water for you. This is particularly useful when you are cleaning dishes or when you have your hands full with vessels or vegetables.

6. Commercial Kitchen Faucet
