Beautiful Kitchen Faucet Incorporates Geometric & Minimalist Design
by Ali Turner, editorial assistant
Minimalism is all the rage right now. It can be an easy aesthetic to accomplish in most parts of a home or building if a design professional has the right products from which to choose. Sleek tables, neutral color schemes, and other simple design elements all contribute to minimalist ideals. One place that can struggle with adhering to the bare necessities needed to attain a minimalist aesthetic, however, is the kitchen. The kitchen is traditionally a high-functioning area of the home that requires multiple gadgets and tools, many of which that are clunky and cumbersome. Often, the kitchen sink is overlooked as simply a utilitarian space in the home, and is rarely equipped with hardware meant to please the eye. That’s changed, however, with the introduction of the MOEN® 90º Spot Resist™ Stainless One-handle High Arc Pullout Kitchen Faucet.
MOEN’s sleek new faucet allows a kitchen to play a part in a home’s ultra-modern style by incorporating several design elements that allow the product to be efficient without being overly ornamental or bulky. The geometric forms of MOEN’s kitchen faucet, notably its 90º geometric contour, add a striking, yet clean, design to a home’s interior.
By choosing the spot resist stainless steel option, homeowners can enjoy a kitchen faucet that resists fingerprints and water spots for a kitchen that truly sparkles. MOEN’s 90º One-handle High Arc Pullout Kitchen Faucet is also available in chrome for those who do not wish for a stainless steel look.
Our team installed this beautiful stainless steel faucet in our shared office kitchen, a place that consistently sees coffee mugs, bowls, and flatware cross its path. The first element of MOEN’s new kitchen faucet that impressed us was simply how easy the installation was. Expecting a bumbling self-installation process, as we’ve seen in the past with other kitchen faucets, our team was happy to report that the installation was a breeze. This was in large part thanks to MOEN’s Duralock™ quick connect system. This intuitive design from MOEN simply connects the faucet’s supply lines and users hear an audible click, which indicates the connection is secure. While our team has continued to use the kitchen faucet since its installation, we’re assured that it would be just as easy to disconnect if we ever needed.
The high arc of the kitchen faucet looks striking in our kitchen, adding an elegant presentation to an otherwise unassuming space amidst our offices. More importantly, however, the high arc allows our staff members to utilize the kitchen sink more efficiently, more quickly, and with less mess. The faucet has a pull out hose that offers flexible water delivery, and we were delighted to see that the hose retracts easily. Often, the clunky retraction of a kitchen sink hose can drive a homeowner batty.
The flow of MOEN’s 90º One-handle High Arc Pullout Kitchen Faucet is unrivaled. Users are given a couple different options for water pressure, including an aerated stream for everyday cleaning, a powerful rinse for heavy-duty cleaning, and a pause function that lets the user conveniently stop water flow from the spray head. We tested these spray options on all sorts of stuck-on grime and day-old coffee stains, and we were happy with the results. Other kitchen faucets would leave our team vigorously scrubbing their Tupperware® while silently cursing their decision to bring spaghetti for lunch, but MOEN’s faucet gave our team no hassles and even assisted in the clean-up process.
MOEN’s 90º One-handle High Arc Pullout Kitchen Faucet is a member of the company’s 90º line, which includes shower heads, bathroom faucets, and grab bars. It is a beautiful addition to any home that is striving to incorporate the essentials of minimalist design while still maintaining form and function.
