Pot filler faucets are one of those topics that stirs lively discussions, where folks debate the merits of adding this fixture above the stove. Those who haven’t experienced pot fillers have questions: How will a pot filler improve my kitchen? How is it better than filling up a pot at the sink and carrying it to the stove? Trust us when we tell you pot fillers are one of those fixtures you can’t wrap your head around until you have one—and then you wonder how you ever lived without it. Let us take you through a few of the reasons why your kitchen isn’t complete without a pot filler faucet.
Pot fillers are practical.
Lots of people have butler’s pantries or bars adjacent to their kitchens, and it isn’t unusual for those spaces to have their own bar/prep faucets. Pot fillers are another convenient water source in your kitchen, designed to make cooking that much easier by simplifying access to water for your tea kettle, morning oatmeal or a big pot of pasta for dinner. With kitchens as the hub of the home, having a pot filler is one step toward simplifying your daily routine.
Pot fillers add value to your kitchen, making them great for resale.
Pot fillers are a thoughtful addition to a kitchen and more common than you might think. If you’re planning a kitchen renovation, have plumbing for a pot filler installed—you don’t have to include it immediately—but having the infrastructure in place will make adding it later that much easier. Adding a pot filler to your kitchen is not an unusual design ask—the plumbing process is similar to adding a water line for a refrigerator ice maker or water filter—and most plumbers, remodelers and designers are accustomed to requests for their installation. Because pot fillers are perceived as a luxury, making this investment in your home will make it more attractive to potential buyers looking for high-end details.
Pot fillers elevate your kitchen.
Like a fancy French range or glass-front refrigerator column, wall mounted pot fillers are one of those items that provide immediate wow-factor in a kitchen, their look of luxury adding a decorative flair. Delta pot fillers are available in two styles—a sleek contemporary model and one with traditional lines—both are available in a variety of finishes, like timeless stainless steel and polished nickel, or modern tones like Venetian Bronze, Matte Black and Champagne Bronze. Pick a finish that matches your sink faucet for a classic combination or get on trend and mix your metals. It’s your kitchen. The choice is yours.
