If you’re someone who loves to techify your life, don’t skip the sink. You’ve likely heard of Bluetooth microwaves and stoves you can turn on from your phone, but have you caught the trend toward high-tech faucets? Convenience, intelligence, and design come together in these high-tech faucet options to give you a new experience in the kitchen or bathroom.
There’s nothing grosser than having your hands covered in raw meat and needing to turn on the faucet. With a hands-free faucet, you can rinse the grime away without touching anything in your kitchen.
Typically these faucets have a built-in sensor that catches your hands moving below the faucet. You’ve likely seen similar options in public restrooms.
Foot pedal faucets offer similar benefits. With an integrated pedal at floor level, you can control the flow of your faucet while remaining hands-free.
Into stats and figures? Some of these faucets offer you real-time, precise digital measurements related to your water usage. Some even come with touchscreen displays that let you control temperature, pressure, and water usage.
Similarly, some faucets have integrated light displays that tell you the temperature on a range of warm (red) to cool (blue). If you’ve got cranky old plumbing that always seems to deliver a surprising temperature, opt for one of these as a way to stay in control.
High tech meets high design in these faucets, some of which take advantage of excellent engineering for a special look. If you’re looking for something thoroughly modern, try a block-shaped waterfall-style faucet. Wash your hands under this gentle sheet of water.
For space-saving options in new faucet designs, pull-out sprayer designs are popular. Unlike side-mounted sprayers, pull-out sprayers have the same water pressure because they are simply your regular faucet extended. The hose runs down the faucet head and extends when you pull it forward. Rinse large pots or fill containers on the countertop with these convenient, high-tech sprayers.
Take advantage of a three-hole sink design to add some practical elements. When combined with a pull-out sprayer option, use the other two holes for an under-counter soap dispenser on one side and an under-counter water distiller or filtration system on the other. The distiller will add a second, smaller faucet to your sink that you switch on for purified drinking water.
Another, less intense option for purified drinking water at your faucet is on-the-tap filters. For a fresher tap water flavor, these mountable filter cartridges generally have a switch that lets you divert water through the filter. Use only when you need a fresh drink, and enjoy your typical water pressure through your regular faucet the rest of the time.
