Why You Need to Add a Pot Filler

So, it’s time to remodel your kitchen. This means you’ve got to think about plumbing and appliances as well as the decorating side of remodeling. It’s a great time to improve the functionality and efficiency of your kitchen as well as its appearance, even down to the small details.

In this blog, we’ll look at one aspect of a kitchen remodel that could really benefit you – a pot filler faucet.

What is a pot filler faucet?

If you’ve not heard of one before or were never really sure what it is, then let’s start with the basics. A pot filler faucet is simply a faucet that is fitted over the stove. It features a long, jointed arm that swings out over the stove and can be folded neatly away after use. Its main purpose is to fill up pots and pans with water at the stove rather than at the sink.

How your kitchen can benefit from one

Is this a must-have feature or an unnecessary addition? That depends on a number of factors, such as the size and location of your sink, and how often you cook. You may have some large pots that don’t quite fit under your regular faucet, making it awkward and difficult to fill them with water. A pot filler makes it easier to do this as you’ll have plenty of space over the stove. It’s a much easier addition than redesigning your entire sink to fit larger pans.

Another huge benefit is that you don’t have to lug full pots of water from the sink to the stove. Doing this can lead to spillages and you could even hurt yourself if the pot is too heavy. Plus, it will save you a lot of effort. If you cook on a regular basis and for the whole family, then a pot filler can be a real savior. It also allows for multi-tasking in your kitchen. If someone is washing dishes in the sink, for example, then you can still get on with the cooking thanks to your pot filler.

Installing a pot filler

Pot filler faucets are easy to install and are affordable. By hiring a plumber, the job can be done within just 30 minutes. The price of pot filler faucets tends to be around $100-$200, although can be more expensive depending on the model. Then there will be the cost of installation on top of this.
