Your Guide to Kitchen Faucet Styles - Levers

When it comes to redesigning your kitchen, choosing the right faucet may seem like a minor detail, but it’s a detail that is definitely worth your time. Your kitchen sink is a feature that you use often, from preparing food and filling pots to washing dishes or your hands. A kitchen faucet can make everyday actions easy – or harder than they have to be – depending on the style you choose.

One of the first things you should consider when looking for a new kitchen faucet is how you want to control water pressure and temperature. There are a number of options to choose from, and the good news is that your preferences are unlikely to limit the other design and function varieties available! We know that choosing from so many options can feel overwhelming, so in the first installment of our series on kitchen faucet types, we’re discussing a few of the options you have for choosing your water and temperature controls. Read on to narrow what you’re looking for in your next kitchen faucet, and visit a Eurolux showroom to investigate your options with an in-person consultation.

Single Lever

A single-lever kitchen faucet is controlled by one handle and one handle only. You press it away from its resting position to control water pressure, and turn it one way or another to add more hot or cold water. There are many ways a single-lever faucet can be designed, but the handle is often placed on top of the faucet or mounted on the side. It is a simple set up, but it can require more time to fine-tune the temperature and flow rate you need for any specific task.

Dual Lever

A dual-lever faucet uses two separate levers to control hot and cold water. For this type of faucet, you will need separate connections for hot and cold water, similar to what you would see in a bathroom. You can still choose a style that works for you, however, whether you want the levers to be placed separately or incorporated into one piece with the faucet itself.

Touch Activation

If you’re looking for an interesting, more luxury kitchen faucet option, try touch activation instead of levers! This type of kitchen faucet does require electricity, but you can turn the water flow on and off and control the temperature without the need of a handle. It only requires a single hole and connection for installation, and it’s sure to impress friends, family, and guests alike.
