Remodel Kitchens – Palo Alto – Faucets – Innovations
There are some fairly recent innovations in kitchen faucets that make sense looking into.
The first is the newest type of valve, called the disk or ceramic disk valve.
Due to how the valve mechanism works, they are highly reliable.
Other interesting innovations are:
This is a form of water conserving faucet, common in busy bathrooms at public places (stadiums for example), that are now available for homes. They are pricing, but if water conservation is a big concern of yours, they may make sense.
If there are small children or forgetful elderly people in your home, there are non scald faucets. You set something internal to faucet and keeps the mix of hot and cold to where the water temperature will never burn anyone.
These are interesting faucets that mix air into the water flow somehow (I’m not exactly sure how they work) so that the flow of water is reduced, but it does not feel reduced. I put a low flow shower head in my shower and my teenagers didn’t even notice. You can now get this feature in faucets.
Easy clean coatings
This is a good one, at least to me. In many parts of the Santa Clara valley, we have hard water, so it’s nice when the surface coating of the faucet is somewhat resistant to the accumulation of mineral deposits left by the water and resistant to soap staining. No faucet is really great at this, but some are not bad.
Now that you are starting your kitchen remodel, we would appreciate an opportunity to be of service to you.
