When it comes to preparing food, cooking and cleaning up, your kitchen faucet is your best ally. It stands ever-ready to rinse fruits, veggies and dirty plates-a-plenty. A silent partner in all things culinary, it certainly does its fair share of work in the kitchen. What could be better than a beautifully designed and functional faucet? There’s only one possible solution: two of them!

You might not immediately see the value in having a second faucet in your kitchen, but ask anyone who has installed a bar/prep faucet and you’ll hear a rave report. The addition of a second faucet frees up the main faucet and sink for larger tasks, like cleaning big pots or providing a place to soak baking sheets. The smaller, secondary faucet can serve as a place for hand washing, beverage refilling and prep work if the main sink is occupied.

A kitchen isn’t the only spot in your home where having an extra faucet makes sense. Add one to your living room or den to create a cozy spot for creating cocktails without having to leave your guests unattended. Install a sink next to your beverage cart or create a countertop space for bottles, glasses and swizzle sticks. When you have larger soirees, your guests will feel at ease helping themselves to a beverage or rinsing their glass.
