The open-concept kitchen is one of the hottest trend in housing, but when everyone can see your work area you need an awesome faucet that makes a statement.
Homeowners fall into two categories: those who really use their kitchen and those who do not. Help them choose a faucet accordingly.
If your buyers won’t be cooking often, they can go nuts with the most impractical, high-style unit they want. No one — except maybe the person who ultimately buys the house later — will care.
But for serious cooks, durability and functionality are key. It’s best to select a faucet that a home owner can shut off with an elbow. It’s worth looking into pro-style faucets with restaurant-style high arc as well.
We’ve found five faucets that bring the style and the functionality.
If you like high-concept design, Karbon is one of the most striking faucets introduced in recent memory. The unit features articulating joints that allow users to deliver water where it’s needed. It uses a joystick lever. us.kohler.com
