Everyone dreams of building their dream houses one day. They have almost every other little detail planned in their minds already. Details related to how the exterior is going to be like, how the interior would be designed, what color scheme would go best with the house, and what furniture you would finally be able to decorate your own house with. And since a house is built with so many love-filled warm feelings, you would want everything to turn out as perfectly as you have planned it in your mind.
All the rooms, all the selected pieces of furniture, everything that you have planned in mind needs to be perfectly built and designed if you want to achieve the best possible real image of the picture in your imagination! 

 
Over the years, you might have heard a lot of people say that “Kitchen is the heart of the house”. I think they rightfully say so.
A kitchen is that part of the house where you begin, and end your day with. And if you belong to a very busy family, where all the family members don’t get a chance to meet the entire day, they somehow end up together, catching up for the missed time in the kitchen, over a meal, or during cooking that meal up, or just unexpectedly, out of the blue.

Kitchens are important in the sense that they are the centers for cooking up your meals for the day, and also because this is the place where you get to be as creative as you can, with both your cooking and your aesthetic sense of designing.

Coming to the kitchen sink area, the faucets have an importance of their own in the entire kitchen. They are approached by almost everyone, countless times, throughout the day, be it for washing, for taking a drink, for rinsing or scrubbing off dirty plates, filling water, and whatnot. They indeed make up an integrable support system for the entire kitchen, and they most definitely need your attention too. 

So, needless to say, with the right kind of decision for installing the right kind of kitchen faucet in your kitchen, you will not only be doing a favor to your kitchen, by making it look aesthetically pleasing, but to yourself, and your family members too! Apart from selecting the right kind of faucet best suited to your needs, the added touch of elegance to the kitchen with the brilliant new designs of the faucets that we see nowadays, an aesthetically pleasing environment is automatically created within the kitchen.

Why Should I Buy a Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet?

When you go to the market or even start researching online about the different kinds of faucets, you are likely to come across countless results, numerous types, and features that are each bigger and better than the previous ones, and almost all of them would appear to be a perfect choice for you. Amongst all of the available choices, here I would tell you why pull-down faucets are possibly convenient, and a hassle-free option for your kitchen sink, and why they should be preferred over the pull-up kitchen faucets! The decision is of course for you to decide, but hopefully, these plus points would help make your decision even easier for you! 

Here, we begin by discussing all the valid factors, reasons, and arguments that possibly make kitchen pull down faucets the best choice for your kitchen. We have also added in some simple and smart tips or hacks that are guaranteed to help you gain all the required knowledge on the technical terms that are crucial to research upon when going for buying a faucet, and also some general yet valuable instructions, that will help you with making the right kind of choice, and to make your choice for the kitchen pull-down faucet a worthy one!

 
1- Ease of Maneuverability: 

Thanks to the extendable spouts, you can easily maneuver the faucet spout around, and reach those places on your utensils and crockery, which might have been a little bit too unreachable for a fixed kitchen faucet to work its magic on. This extendable spout also gives you the benefit of having uncharted access to the kitchen sink, which makes washing an easy, and hassle-free task.

2- Little to no Mess:

When you are using a fixed spout, you more than often have to drag your pots and pans all the way around to get them cleaned properly. But with a spout that moves along in the same direction that you want it to, things automatically become a lot much easier, and this technique also helps in preventing unwanted spills and splashes, which otherwise make your kitchen messier. 


3- Easily Fits in Anywhere:

A pull-down kitchen faucet can fit in any setting, so if you are a style- freak kind of person, who wants everything to be perfectly put into place, installing a pull-down faucet wouldn’t be a problem for you, and it definitely wouldn’t look like something that is out of place, even if your kitchen is based off a simple, contemporary, vintage, or even a modern style.

4- Washing Made Simple:

A pull-down faucet will no doubt make things a lot easier for you. It would allow you to freely wash pots and pans, plates and crockery, in whatever way you want to, with no constraints at all. This way, you might get your dishwashing done in no time, and with full ease as well.

5- Works as a Hose:

Now, this fact is going to be quite an advantageous one for all those people out there who love detailed, deep cleansing. With the help of a pull-down faucet, you would not only be able to clean your dirty plates with ease, but would also have the liberty to spray jets of water as per your wish, because this faucet can easily work as a hose, owing to its spray head, so you can easily focus on those areas of your dirty plates that need more attention, or have more tough stains. 

6- Extendable Reach:

Owing to great lengths to which the retractable hose can be pulled out, (hence the name too), a pull-down faucet will most definitely help you in reaching far away areas of the kitchen, thus giving you full, uncharted access to the sink. Some faucets can even be pulled way out of the kitchen sink, and this would be a great way of filling in your gallons, or watering your nearby indoor plants, without having to walk all the way or work out tiresome measures to get those tasks done.

7- Conserve Water!

 Many faucets are equipped with this controllable setting where you can alternate between the flow of water, and can also stop the water flow whenever you do not need it, in the middle of scrubbing, or just whatever the reason might be. This setting is in fact, very great practice for conserving water, because nobody likes it when the water is excessively flowing for no reason, while you stand there and scrub your dirty plates. But with a pull-down faucet, you might finally be able to get over this habit of yours.


What Technical Things Should One Keep In Mind When Buying a Pull Down Kitchen Faucet?

First things first, let us convey this fact in very clear-cut words to you, that with the rapid advances in technology, the world around has been progressing at a very fast rate too. So, if you want to keep on moving with the pace of the ever-changing world, we all need to have a sound knowledge of all the things around this as well. 

The reason for stating this fact here is, that I now want to educate you on the technical “terminologies”, or rather, the technical “specifications” that you should be fully aware of while buying a brand new kitchen pull-down faucet for yourself.

This is important because not everything that glitters is gold, and so, as a first-time buyer, or even a returning buyer, you do not end up buying a product that looks extremely appealing to the eyes, but in fact, is a total failure when it comes to performing well and proving itself to be a durable option. If anything, that you should be purchasing is a product that not only looks great, but also performs great, and can positively bring a (hopefully, great!) change in your life.

 
So, here we made a list of all those important “features and specs” that you should consider in terms of technical terms while buying a kitchen pull down faucet: 

1) Composition/Material of the Faucet: This is important because you certainly do not want a faucet built out of materials that are not durable for a long time, and do not cater well to your needs. A good quality material would assure a great quality product as well. 

2) Included Accessories: There are many brands out there which include accessories like a side sprayer, a soap dish or dispenser, and a deck plate, as an extra value-added product inside their packages, which is indeed a good thing, so if you are on the lookout for such a faucet, that comes in with accessories attached, you are surely going to find many in the crowd to choose from. 

But there are also many brands who, despite claiming to give accessories, often miss out giving some important components that are mandatorily needed for the installation setup. These essential components might include the water pipes, or the hoses, and sometimes, some other important tools too. And certainly, nobody wants that! So, you should always look for a package that has each and everything included, particularly when you are going to buy a faucet for the first time.

3) Types of Valves: You have the options to choose from different types of valve styles, including Compression, Ball, Disc, and Cartridge type of valves. Since valves serve a very important purpose in controlling the temperature and promoting the unidirectional flow of water, you should be quite careful while choosing the faucet with your preferred category of the valve. The majority of the people prefer the “Compression” type of valves, since they are a highly affordable option, and are quite a convenient option too.

 
4) The finish of the Faucet: For most obvious reasons, nobody would like a smart and modern styled kitchen faucet that looks totally out of place concerning your kitchen aesthetics and environment. Fortunately, the faucet manufacturing industries were aware of that, and they have released almost all of their faucets in a variety of different finishes, each of which could be a great option for different kinds of kitchen. So, you can freely choose the kitchen faucet that you like, without having to compromise on its benefits and available style. 

 
5) Height of the Faucet: Before opting for either a high-arched faucet or a low-arched one, you need to keep your kitchen sink in preference first. Both the height of the faucet and the depth or extent of the kitchen sink is prioritized because without keeping either of them in consideration, there is almost no use of buying a new faucet.
We are emphasizing this fact because, if you have a shallow sink, then a high-arched faucet would be a good choice. After all, with a combination of a high-arched pull-down faucet and a shallow sink, you would be inviting a load of messes and splashes now and then. Similarly, a deep sink would definitely be a not so good option for a low arched faucet, because that way, you would face problems related to the lack of space, and the dishes not adjusting under the faucet, and so on, so forth. The best way to avoid all of these troubles is to consider the shape and depth of your kitchen, and then proceed towards buying a faucet.

6) Handles in the Faucet: Sometimes people are unable to adapt to the recent changes in their appliances, and the same could happen with you as well. Some people are used to having a faucet with a single handle, as with that they could easily handle the water flow and the temperature changes. If suddenly, a double-handled faucet is installed in your kitchen, you would most definitely take time adapting to that change, and would also not like using it. So, it is also a point to be considered while buying a new kitchen faucet.

7) The Extent of the Hose Length: If you want to save your back, and avoid the troubles of having to bend over to wash your dishes and plates, then maybe this point would be of vital importance to you. 

While buying a kitchen faucet, and that too, a pull-down one, always, always keep this fact in your mind that not only the maneuverability of this type of faucet is important, but the length of the hose is important too. And the reason why I am saying so is that the length to which the hose can be pulled outwards varies from a faucet to faucet, some provide a considerable height reaching quite far away, while some provide just a little bit of distance. This all only depends on your convenience, and the right kind of decision is to be made by you only, according to your preference.

 
8) Types of Faucet Mounts: There are different types of mount options that kitchen faucets come with. You get to choose from a wide variety of mounts that you want your kitchen faucet to project from. You can either go for a surface mounted, a deck-mounted or even a standard, old fashioned kind of mount. This, although a little bit dependent on the type of kitchen setting you have, always depends on you at the end, to make a choice.

 
And now finally, to help put an end to all your problems, and to solve all your confusions regarding which faucet will suit best for your kitchen environment, which faucet will be the most suitable choice according to your needs, and which one would be just “the one” for you, we have made a list of the top ten best pull-down faucets, that would help make your decision easier.

All of these faucets are the best-rated kitchen pull-down faucets, and there is no doubt that the price for which they are being sold, is a justified one, for all the benefits and advantages that they are claiming to provide you with. 

Even at such affordable rates, these faucets will prove to be the best choice for your new kitchen, or your already existing kitchen, as a nice and pleasant change! 

So, without any delay, let us overview the features and qualities of these super affordable, the best of the best pull down faucets that are about to make your life a lot easier!

To solve all your complaints regarding the toughest and the dirtiest of stains, this kitchen faucet has been equipped with a “Shield Spray Technology. This is, in fact, a technology that causes a powerful, accelerated stream of water to flow out from the water spray head, but in a restricted way, to minimize the expected splashes. A protective sphere controls this powerful jet of water, and so splashes and splutters are kept to a minimum level.
The “Touch20” variant of the Delta faucet is, on the other hand, a tech-savvy invention from these manufacturers. As per its tagline, it “keeps your kitchen faucet squeaky clean, even if your fingers, or hands aren’t”,

This very fact would indeed be of great relief for all the clean freak mothers, and family members, who cannot tolerate even a speck of dirt or lint on their furniture.

So, no need to worry over getting your hands burned from the hot water, anymore, because now you can easily get to know of the water temperature, without actually getting to feel it!

This faucet also has a magnetic docking system, called as the “Magna Tite Docking” system, which is the equipment of a powerful magnet installed in the sprayer head, which helps in keeping the water sprayer head intact in its place, and prevents it from getting loose, or drooping over time, as we usually notice with our usual faucets, after a year or two.
The sprayer has two types of water flow settings enabled in it: the spray flow, and the stream type flow, both of which could be adjusted according to your need.

It is manufactured using the finest of materials, including a diamond embedded ceramic disc, which needs no kind of lubrication and keeps the area water-free.

And this was about it! Since here we have centered our attention towards pull down kitchen faucets only, therefore, we thought of giving you some very handy, and important tips to keep in mind (apart from the technical specifications) for when you start planning to buy a kitchen faucet, so that you know what you are looking for, and so you end up picking only the very best kitchen pull down faucets:

1) How Many Handles Would Be Perfect For You?

Many people prefer using a faucet that comes in with a single handle, just because it is an easier, and handier option for them. The advantage that double-handled faucets have over the single-handled ones is that they have two separate handles, each of which have been designed to control both the hot and cold temperatures of water individually, whereas, in a single-handle faucet, you would have to move the handle upwards, or downwards to alternate between the two temperatures. So, it is totally up to your choice if you want a faucet with a single handle or a double one. But now we are also seeing a wide range of kitchen faucets that, irrespective of the number of handles, are touch-friendly, and motion friendly. This might be the evolution of kitchen faucets, as you might not need to use a handle at all, but would simply require a simple motion, or touch to get the faucet to do its job.

2) Are both your shortlisted faucet and your kitchen sink compatible with each other?

To buy a new faucet, you also need to reflect on the type of sink that you already have in your kitchen, or the type of sink, that you are planning to install in your kitchen.

This is important to decide because in case you have a shallow sink or a sink with a slight depth only, and you plan to buy a pull-down kitchen faucet, then spills and splashes would become a common occurrence in your kitchen.
If you want to install a pull-down kitchen faucet, you need to have a sink which is deep, or at least has a medium depth, because, with a pull-down kitchen faucet, you not only need to avoid the splashes but also need a considerable amount of space to accommodate the extendable spout of the faucet.

3) Have you chosen your aesthetics carefully?

Since this purchase is going to be a long time investment, therefore you also need to make sure that whatever product you buy, aesthetically suits with the rest of your kitchen setting, and overall environment, and does not appear to be an out of place item.

For example, if you end up buying a very fancy kitchen faucet for your contemporary style kitchen, not only would it seem to be a mismatch, but it would also appear to give the “Odd One Out” feeling.

Instead of that, if you buy a simply designed faucet, it would go well with your classic style kitchen, and a slightly more vibrant, and more designed faucet would go well with a kitchen of contemporary style. So, either way, it is your call to decide which faucet would best suit your kitchen setting.

4) How many numbers of holes for installation are you okay with?

A very important factor to be kept in mind is the number of holes that you already have in your kitchen, or plan to get drilled, for installing a particular kind of faucet. A single hole is usually preferred for all the faucets that come in with a single handle, and are usually simplicity-based products. But as we go towards the fancier looking designs, they keep on adding accessory products along with the faucet, such as the soap dispenser, a side sprayer, and other handy looking products. To accommodate all these accessories, you need extra holes too. 

So, this also depends on you. If you are looking for a simple, compact option, or do not have much space, you can safely go for the single holed faucet option. If not, then a fancier option is always there! 

 
5) Have you researched the guarantees and warranties too?


Okay, so this might be the most important of all factors out there. On average, a pull-down kitchen faucet is said to have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. But obviously, things matter from user to user, and in such a case, you would always want to own such a product that guarantees you that whatever loss or defective part you will come across, would be taken care of, by the company itself. And for this, you need to research and evaluate for yourself properly whether the faucet that you are going to buy will provide you with a replacement guarantee for a considerable amount of time, and if not that, would it give you the chance to get the particular defected part changed or replaced for a limited period? The fact why this point is being emphasized here is that a kitchen faucet is supposed to be a one-time investment, and after so much of homework and research over it, you certainly do not deserve to get a product that if, gets damaged, or defected, is not backed off by any sort of guarantee and warranty.

These were just a few of the many small tips and tricks that we often tend to forget while buying not only faucets but almost every other thing.
