Buying faucets can be intimidating. It is a major purchase and you want to make sure your faucets not only look good and but last a long time. Before you purchase your faucets, consider your sink - the size, style, and shape. Most kitchen and bathroom sinks are manufactured with holes to accommodate the faucet, from one to four holes. You will need three holes when choosing a Moen single-handle faucet with a deck plate. Without a deck plate, you can mount the faucet in a single hole. Many pullout spout kitchen faucets can be single-hole mounted. This is a great option if you want the functionality of an all in one sidespray faucet, creating flexibility to add some accessories to any available sink holes.
Moen Kitchen Faucets
The kitchen is one of the most - if not the most - important room in the house. One of the most popular Moen kitchen faucets is the pull down faucet. No other pull down faucet is easier to use than a Moen kitchen faucet. With the ReflexTM system, Moen's pull down faucets are the most maneuverable and easiest to extend designs created. The sprayer returns completely and securely without any assistance.
Spouts are available in pullout or pull down and the spout shape can be high or low arc, or an open waterway. Chrome is no longer the only choice in finishes. Moen offers a myriad of finishes for faucets including brushed chrome, classic stainless, glacier, ivory, matte black, Mediterranean and oil rubbed bronze, pewter, spot resist stainless, and wrought iron. When you choose a Moen faucet, you can select from over two dozen Collections, from a traditional design to transition, modern and basic. There are no standard rules for style. What is important is that you choose something you will enjoy since you will be using your faucets many times a day.
Moen Bar, Prep, and Butler Faucets
Moen offers faucets designed specifically for bars, preparation or prep areas in the kitchen, and butler faucets. A butler faucet would be used in a butler station that is normally situated between the kitchen and dining room. Moen butler faucets are one-handle models with a high arc filtering system. They are available in chrome, oil rubbed bronze and classic stainless. Bar and butler areas are not used as often as a kitchen or bathrooms. Nevertheless, the faucets should be good quality and last a long time. Since bar and butler areas are not usually visible from the kitchen area, you can choose a different style and finish. Bar faucets are usually single handle faucets and require one sink hole for installation. The style of your Moen bar and prep faucets can be traditional, transitional, modern or basic. A dozen Moen Collections offer the bar and prep faucets. All faucets are pullout or pulldown, with finishes available in brushed chrome, chrome, classic stainless, oil rubbed bronze, pewter, stainless and wrought iron, with one or two handles.
Butler faucets are available in chrome, oil rubbed bronze and classic stainless. The Moen AquaSuite line offers an attractive one-handle high arc filtering single mount faucet. Prices range from $226 to $305.
Moen Bathroom Faucets
Moen bathroom faucets can be mounted directly on the sink or on the wall behind the sink. Choose a style that enhances your decor from traditional, transitional, modern or basic. The spout can be a high or low arc, or for a contemporary touch, choose an open waterway spout. The color of finish should match your decor and includes many choices: antique bronze or nickel, brushed bronze, chrome, or nickel, basic chrome, classic brushed nickel, Mediterranean bronze, nickel, oil rubbed bronze, pewter, platinum, polished brass, spot resist brushed nickel and wrought iron.
How many handles do you prefer: one or two? Your faucet can be mounted directly on your sink or on the wall behind the sink. A centerset mount is mounted in the center of your bathroom sink. If you go with a widespread mount, the faucet is "spread out" on the base of the back of the sink. With a single mount faucet, the faucet is normally mounted in the center on the back of the sink. If your sink is a vessel style or a contemporary bowl sink, a wall mount faucet is a great choice due to the look you will achieve and a great spacing saving option.
