Beverage faucet fits for kitchen prep sink

A beverage faucet only uses a cold-water line, so easier to rough in and install.

Q: I plan on remodeling my kitchen. One feature planned is a small prep sink for my small kitchen island. I only need cold water to this sink, and because of the tight area, a large faucet will not fit. Any ideas on a faucet I can use? All I have seen are standard kitchen faucets. Thanks!

A: I know just the faucet that may work for you. In fact, I have one in my own kitchen.

It’s called a beverage faucet and it can add convenience, style and a special feature to your prep sink.

First, it only uses a cold-water line, so it’s a little easier to rough in and install. Second, it is smaller than a standard kitchen faucet.

Finally, most models have a filter-option feature, so you can have a dedicated drinking faucet in your kitchen.

Note: This is not a “tap”-type water dispenser. A beverage faucet looks and works like a mini-gooseneck faucet and it can even match your larger kitchen-faucet style. All in all, I’ll call that a “small” faucet with a “big” payback for your new kitchen!
