Which Types of Kitchen Faucet is Best for My Home?
Depending on how long it has been since you last purchased a faucet, you may be surprised to see just how far the technology and options have come. Today, there are numerous styles available to fit every lifestyle, ranging from traditional 2-handle faucets to more advanced pull-down and motion-activated faucets. For even greater convenience, consider going with a model that includes a matching soap dispenser.

Choosing the Right Kitchen Faucet Finish
For years, homeowners were limited to a very finite selection of kitchen faucet finishes, leaving little to the imagination and hardly any potential for remodeling creativity. Today, things are vastly different. Modern kitchen faucets come in a full spectrum of finishes and colors, with the most popular being stainless steel, chrome, bronze, black, white and others. If you’re in the midst of a full kitchen remodeling project, the McKenna’s team can help ensure that your new faucet is a perfect match.
Faucet Hole Mounts and Deckplates
One of the most important things to look at, structurally, are the number of holes in your current kitchen sink/faucet configuration. They can range from one single hole, all the way up to four hole configurations. So unless you’re planning on replacing your sink at the same time, you’ll definitely want to choose one that’s in line with your existing design. Not sure which one you have? Just snap a picture of the underside of your faucet and bring it to McKenna’s. We’ll let you know which faucets will be a perfect, stress-free fit.
