Water Filtration and Softeners

Several filtration methods can be used in the kitchen to purify your water. Before selecting a filtration unit, make sure you know what contaminants are in your water. Carafe filters purify a small amount of water at a time and can be kept in the refrigerator. Faucet-mount filters provide easy access to clean drinking and cooking water but can slow water flow, while undersink filters provide plenty of water but take up cabinet space. You can also opt for a whole-house unit that may help soften water as well as clean it.

Product Features

Product Features

Features will vary depending on the specific kitchen fixture you're shopping for, but here are a few key features to consider when looking for fixtures to outfit your kitchen. Above all, look for features that will streamline chores and make the product easy to use on a daily basis.

Easy-to-Use Designs

When shopping for sinks and faucets, look for features that make the fixtures easier to use. For example, pot-filler faucets and high-arc faucets can make it easier to fill large pots of water. Extra-deep sink basins and sinks with lowered center dividers make it easier to wash large pots and pans or baking sheets.

Noise-Reducing Features

Some sinks come with sound-deadening pads or underbody coatings that help reduce noise if you accidentally drop a pot or pan in the sink. Garbage disposals will all be noisy, but some higher-price models come with features that help reduce vibrations and decrease noise.

Easy-Clean Surfaces

Some sinks are easier to clean than others because of their design and material. Integral sinks (with one seamless piece of material for the sink bowl and countertop) and undermount sinks make it easy to wipe food scraps directly into the sink, because there is no lip where food and dirt can get trapped. If you sometimes leave dirty dishes in the sink, be sure to look for a sink material that resists stains.

Built-In Accessories

As you're shopping for sinks for the kitchen or laundry room, look for models with accessories designed to streamline cooking tasks and cleaning chores. Some kitchen sinks are available with cutting boards and colanders designed to perfectly fit the sink, while laundry sinks can come with soaking pans, wire racks, and other accessories designed to create moveable work areas.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

As you're shopping, consider your regular cleanup chores and think about how you'll use the sink, faucet, or other fixture on a daily basis. Also, think about the style of your kitchen and how the fixture will complement the look you hope to achieve. Be sure to keep your overall space in mind and choose fixtures that fit the scale of the room. Here are a few things to consider.

Convenience

When making purchasing decisions regarding kitchen fixtures, take time to think about how you'll work in the cooking or laundry area on a daily basis. Do you simply rinse dishes before putting them in a dishwasher? If so, a single-bowl sink may be all you need. If you often multitask, a double- or triple-bowl model may be better suited to your needs. Consider adding an extra sink in the prep or bar area to accommodate multiple users at once. Are you a big tea drinker, or do you need to warm up baby bottles? A hot-water dispenser may be just what you need. Take time to think about what features and designs would best help streamline everyday chores before selecting fixtures.

Style and Finish

A kitchen sink and faucet can be a focal point of the room or blend into the background, depending on the design and finish. Apron-front sinks create a dramatic look and add vintage charm, while integral sinks blend into the countertop for a seamless look. When selecting a faucet finish, consider the finishes on surrounding cabinet hardware and light fixturesŚyou may want to choose a finish that matches or mix it up a little. It's all a matter of preference, so choose what you like!

Water Conservation

If you want to conserve water, look for a faucet with a low-flow aerator that reduces the flow of water from your faucet.

Safety

In the busy kitchen environment, it's always important to consider safetyŚand garbage disposals can be a danger if little kids are in the house. If you're concerned about someone accidentally turning on the disposer, you can find models with safety covers or units that don't turn on unless the disposer lid is in place.

Size

To decide on the size of sink you need, you'll want to consider both the available space in your room and how you regularly use the sink. Compact or corner sinks are available if space is limited. For a balanced look, be sure to match the scale of your faucet and sink.
