Wall Mount Kitchen Faucets are mounted on the wall over the kitchen sink or over the stove. The mounting option chosen depends upon personal preferences based upon price, design, style, and functionality.
Wall Mount Kitchen Faucets come in a wide variety of styles and finishes ranging from the latest contemporary styles to vintage designs appropriate for an antique style kitchen.
Over The Sink Faucets
Most wall mount kitchen faucets are mounted on a wall or back splash behind the kitchen sink. These faucets are functional yet stylish fixtures that are a good choice for kitchens with limited counter top area. Wall mounted faucets require that the plumbing extend above the countertop in the wall. Because these faucets are attached to the wall over the sink and not directly to the sink itself, there is increased height which is ideal for filling larger pots and pans.
Over The Stove Faucets
A recent trend is to put the faucet on the wall directly over the stove. An over-the-stove wall mount kitchen faucet allows the cook to fill large vessels with water without having to carry them a distance across the kitchen. Over-the-stove faucets require that plumbing be installed behind or next to the stove. The faucet needs to be mounted high enough to clear the tallest pot. Most over-the-stove wall mount faucets are placed about 20″ to 24″ above the burners.
Choose an over-the-stove wall mount kitchen faucet with dual valves. Faucets with dual valves have a valve handle at the wall and a handle at the spout. The second valve provides an extra measure of convenience and safety. In the event of a leak this valve allows you to turn off the water supply. It also eliminates
the need to reach over a hot stove to turn off the water.
