At the request of my readers, I have posted in the past about products that make life easier for me (Magic Erasers, makeup removal cloths, and our baby sound machine are some of the most recent ones–I still use all three of those). While washing dishes one day day, I realized that another such item was right in front of my face, something I use many times a day but rarely stop to think about its practicality: our kitchen faucet.
In our first four years of marriage, Mr. Handsome and I have lived in three different homes. The first two were rentals, and this one is our first purchased house. In our first place, we had a small, shallow kitchen sink with an old-style faucet that spun 360 degrees. There was no backsplash, and behind the sink was our living room, so you could technically spin the faucet 180 degrees and release water onto the living room carpet. Not exactly a practical feature, unless perhaps you had a big stain on your carpet that needed to be washed.
In our second apartment, we had the same small sink but with a fancy faucet. Not only did the faucet have a high arch, but it also had a retractable head. It was so incredibly handy for cleaning the sink and filling or washing big pots or buckets that when we started looking for houses, I decided that if our new house didn’t have the same faucet, it would have to be replaced right away.
What are your thoughts on kitchen faucets?
