Perks of a Bar Faucet

It’s becoming increasingly popular to install a modern kitchen faucet and sink into your current bar setup. While installing a bar sink and faucet may not seem like a necessity, there are plenty of added benefits that prove it to be an advantageous upgrade. Here are just some of the perks of installing a bar faucet:

Extra Sink Space

Although smaller in size, bar faucets and sinks give you an extra space to work with. If you can, install a bar faucet in a convenient location, like the kitchen island. It’s the perfect place to wash and prep veggies. Having a bar faucet and sink will help keep your fresh ingredients away from any dirty dishes in the main sink. It’s also ideal for setting up space for an extra pair of hands when making dinner.

Instant Hot Water

Installing a bar sink and faucet can give you instant access to hot water when hooked up to a hot water dispenser. An instant hot water dispenser does just that: gives you immediate access to hot water. That way you can drink your cup of tea without putting the kettle on, no waiting required.

Filtered Drinking Water

Bar faucets can also be attached up to a cold water dispensers and water filters, providing you will cool, refreshing drinking water right then and there. Hooking up a regular sink to a water filter will reduce the flow of water, which can be troublesome and annoying. It’s best to avoid doing this if you use your regular sink for washing pots and pans. However, bar faucets are ideal for installing a cold water dispenser since they already give off a small, steady stream.
