It only takes a . . . tap!
Faucets and taps are often thought of as the jewelry of a kitchen or bathroom. After all, they’re shiny, they’re pretty and they come in all kinds of interesting finishes and shapes. Your faucets can say a lot about your tastes. Let our Calgary Plumbers advise you on your home improvements.
The practical side of pretty
It’s a fact of life that in the kitchen, hands can get pretty nasty. You’re cutting up chicken, wiping up spills, kneading dough and emptying the garbage. Obviously you’re going to want to wash your hands after all that. Thanks to new technology, just because your hands are up to their elbows in microbes, that doesn’t mean your fixtures will be too.
Touch sensitive faucets
Have you seen touch-sensitive faucets in design magazines or shows? Growing in popularity, these bits of kitchen bling are coming to showrooms and gourmet kitchens near you.
And what do we think? Well, after years and years in the business, we’ve had a chance to really test drive a lot of trends. Some things survive the test of time and some things don’t but we’re really excited about these. The Grohe Minta Touch faucet, which goes on with a touch, is from one of our preferred manufacturers – and is a perfect example of smart technology. It blends both ease-of-use with streamlined, contemporary good looks and comes in a variety of finishes. If keeping the spread of household nasties at bay is important to you, this hard-working, well-made kitchen fixture may be a good option.
Pot filler faucets
For many, particularly as we get older, hoisting a stock pot full of water out of the sink and onto the stove is a special kind of trial. The pot is heavy, it’s full, and odds are at least, that parts of our shirts are going to get soaked.
If you can avoid that, why wouldn’t you?
Pot filler faucets eliminate the in-between transition from sink to stove top. Another import to the home from the commercial kitchen, pot fillers are mounted either to the counter or to the wall behind your range and let you fill the pot in place on the burner. Designed to extend far enough to allow you to use the front or the back of your stove’s burners, these faucets give you maximum flexibility and reliability and look good doing it. A perfect candidate if you’re considering a kitchen renovation…we’re confident that our customers will be delighted with this product. Get in touch to know more!
Chances are you’re familiar with the standard under-mount kitchen sink. They’re nice and clean and they look good in a streamlined, uncluttered kitchen. But the kitchen sink has come along way since the options were under-or-over mount, double-or-single basin. You can now purchase a sink that’s every bit as cool as your new faucets. A wide range of materials, sizes and shapes mean you can truly customize your kitchen to suit the way you use it. Here at Instant Plumbing, we have the expertise and experience to get you exactly what you want. Super-deep, large, undermount single basin with inset cutting board and drying rack? Sure. We can do that.
