Your bar plans are all set. You have decided just how big, or small, the bar will be. You have decided on the countertop and bar sink. One of the remaining details that needs to be decided is just which bar sink faucet you will add the the bar. Sometimes people view choice of faucet as an afterthought, but the wrong faucet on an otherwise perfect bar design can really raise eyebrows.
Like bar sinks, bar faucets come in many shapes and sizes, so this is a choice that should be made only after some thought and research has gone into it. The good thing is, like most shopping these days, research and shopping for a bar sink faucet can be done entirely on the internet.
The first thing to do when searching for a bar sink faucet is to take a look at your counter top and bar sink choices. Now try to determine which finish on yout faucet would look best and compliment those things. If you installed a stainless steel undermount bar sink you might want a faucet with a chrome or brushed stainless finish. if your bar sink is copper, a brass or copper toned bar sink faucet will look great. As long as the bar sink and bar sink faucet compliment each other you really cannot go too far off course with this choice.
Once you know the look you want in your bar sink faucet, turn your attention to the functional aspects of the faucet. first of all, do you have cold water only, or both hot and cold water at your bar? Any faucet can be used with either configuration, but there are some bar sink faucets available for locations that have cold water only. these are usually simple chrome finished, single lever type faucets. If you want something fancier and only have cold water at your bar location, don’t worry. You can simply have both the hot and cold water connections at the bottom of the faucet tie into the cold water line.
Another functional consideration is whether you want other features in your bar sink faucet. Do you want the faucet to have multiple spray setting? Do you want a solid mount bar sink faucet, or one that is a pull out type so you can wash glasses down inside the sink rather than having to pour water on them from above?
There are bar sink faucets available in all the options we talked about in this article. To make the best selection for your needs, schedule some time to explore all the options. There are few obvious focal points on most home bars, but the bar sink faucet can be one of them if you make a good choice. If the bar sink faucet does not really make sense with the other aspects of your bar, you run the risk of it being a focal point for the wrong reasons!
