During a kitchen remodel, instant hot and filtered water dispensers are a useful add-on to consider. They add a new level of convenience, with the ability to pour a tall glass of water or quickly make items such as instant coffee, hot tea, and oatmeal.
“The hot water dispenser is connected to a tank that delivers water at a higher temperature, eliminating the need to boil or heat water in the microwave,” said Normandy Designer Ashley Noethe.
Filtered water is also a nice feature for kitchens, giving the ability to fill up water bottles or grab a glass of water.
“The hot water option seems to be more popular as many refrigerators already have a water dispenser,” added Ashley. “However, if you prefer a refrigerator armoire or a model that does not have a built-in dispenser, then it makes sense to add a filtered water dispenser too.”
When it comes to selecting a dispenser that is right for you, there are a few items to consider.
Filtration – To improve the quality and taste of the water, the dispenser should have some sort of filtration system in place. However, keep in mind that you’ll need to change these filters one to two times per year.
Style – There are many different style options. Consider selecting a look that matches your main faucet. There are even some models that are integrated into the faucet so you don’t have an extra fixture on your countertop.
Investment – You’ll want to invest in a good, quality product. Consider the size of the tank, heater, and type of filtration system.
