TREND WATCH: Simple and slim profiles with high-tech functionality make for the faucet of the future.
According to a recent poll, 70 percent of consumers prefer a pull-out or pull-down kitchen faucet when investing more than $100 in their purchase. Offering the latest in technological precision, the pull-out or pull-off spray can reach anywhere in a two or three bowl sink. These types of faucets are ideal for filling large stockpots, coffee makers and buckets outside of the sink. While brass faucets are still popular, many homeowners have been opting for designs crafted from an entire block of sleek stainless steel.
The SVO Collection by JACLO: The new JACLO Steam Valve Original Collection was designed with the idea of creating an industrial-looking stainless steel faucet that features cutting-edge technology. One of its main highlights is its patented pull-off spray. This unique offering allows the user to simply lift the spray head from a clip on the end of the spout, and use in a similar manner to a conventional pull-out spray. An industrial strength stainless steel hose encased within a clear rubber coating fits perfectly into the channel within the arc spout. When not in use as a hand spray, the hose is concealed within the spout. The spray head also features a push pull action to move from aerated stream to spray.
Assorted Kitchen Faucets by MGS: MGS has an extensive collection of faucets created from premium quality solid stainless steel, designed for residential kitchens and food-prep work islands. The Antares features a single lever mixer, and a pull-out dual spray available in a matching steel or black finish. The Unico is characterized by its single vertical lever handle and gracefully curved spout. This fixture features a discreet, weighted pull-out spray with stainless steel flexible hose equipped with an anti-lime aerator and check-valve to prevent the back-flow of impure water.
