8 Incredible Kitchen Designs That Incorporate Wall-Mounted Pot Fillers
Wall-mounted pot fillers are the ultimate in kitchen convenience. Generally mounted above the stove, they allow you to fill pots as they sit on the burner rather than having to fill the pot at the sink and then carry it (full and splashing) to the stove.
A wall-mounted pot filler faucet creates needed convenience in the kitchen, but it can also make a powerful design statement, taking your kitchen from ho-hum to sophisticated and efficient.
Why You Need a Wall-Mounted Pot Filler
Many sink faucets make it difficult to fill large pots with water. Angling the pot to get it under the faucet and then back out again can cause spills. Plus, an empty sink is required to fill the pot, and in the fast-paced rhythm of dinner prep, that doesn’t always happen.
Pot filler kitchen faucets are designed to extend when needed and retract when not in use, tucking neatly against the wall or backsplash and saving space. And some faucets are telescopic, meaning the arms can expand upwards and outwards, ensuring you can reach every burner on your oven — or even the counter space nearby.
A wall-mounted pot filler is an addition to your kitchen design that, once you have it, you won’t be able to imagine life without one.
8 Pot Filler Faucet Designs You’ll Want to Steal (+ 1 Bonus Idea)
1. Divergent Finishes
The dark matte finish on this pot filler faucet stands in contrast to the shine of the clean white subway tile backsplash. The clearly marked on/off handle adds an industrial flair to complement the design.
2. Dark Tones
Matching the wall-mounted pot filler faucet to the cabinets, countertop and range hood incorporates it into the design even as it stands out against the white tiled wall.
This pleasing cohesion allows the eye to run along the cabinets, jump to the pot filler faucet and then resume its way to the end of the counter. Open shelving adds another layer of design to increase visual interest, enhancing the feeling of convenience started by the pot filler.
3. Extreme Contrast
In this bright, beautiful kitchen, the dark color of the under cabinets is softened with a gray veined white countertop, bright white tiled backsplash and white open shelving on either side of the white range hood.
The black of the cabinets is drawn upwards through the incorporation of the pot filler kitchen faucet mounted above the stove. Vintage-style faucet handles blend into the modern design, adding an interesting design element that’s mirrored in the nearby sink faucet.
4. Modern Country Aesthetic
In this country cottage-style kitchen, the pot filler faucet acts as a modern touch and complements the natural cabinets and wood on the ceiling. Conveniently tucked back against the wall, the pot filler faucet creates efficiency when it’s pulled from the wall to fill a pot for boiling water.
And from a different angle, this pot filler kitchen faucet is no less stunning.
Here you can see how it draws the black of the cabinet hardware, sink faucet and black stove burners together. Its contrast to the gleam of the stainless steel appliances creates added interest and places for the eye to linger on throughout the kitchen.
5. Rustic Charm
This charming rustic kitchen makes use of copper tones throughout the design, creating a warm and inviting environment to prepare meals and enjoy conversation.
The wall-mounted pot filler faucet is just one additional design element that makes this kitchen beautiful and interesting with its use of mixed metals and subtle design touches. It matches the kitchen faucets and copper-toned oven while standing in beautiful contrast to the dark tilework on the backsplash.
6. Touch of Old-Fashion
The knobs on this intricately designed oven range bring a vintage touch to a design that blends the old and new, modern and rustic. The brass wall-mounted pot filler matches its finish to the oven range hardware, while bright white subway tiles reflect the natural light pouring in from the windows, brightening up the dark under cabinets.
7. Neutral Patterns
The color palette in this kitchen is simple — tones of gray and silver. But the intricate and detailed patterns on the backsplash takes what could be drab and makes it fab. To make the design really pop, bright red gate valve handles were added to the telescopic pot filler. The telescopic design makes it easy to reach any spot on your stove (or even on the nearby counter!) for convenience you’ll love.
8. Light & Bright
This kitchen (photographed by Brownstoner) went for a bright, cheerful look. The architects emphasized the natural light by installing custom cabinetry of painted wood and white oak for a light, spacious feeling. Paired with white porcelain on the island, it gives visitors a breath of fresh air. And to make the design pop, they combined bright green tile backsplash with gold finishes on the handles, sink faucets and the wall-mounted pot filler. It’s convenience and beauty in one design.
BONUS: Deck-Mounted Pot Filler
Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to add a wall-mounted pot filler where you want it due to your home’s design and pipe location. That doesn’t mean you don’t have to give up on your dream of easy pot-filling.
This telescopic pot-filler is deck-mounted over the sink so you can raise the faucet to fit any height pot. While you’ll still have to carry your pot over to the stove, you won’t have to tilt it to fit under the faucet (and again to get it out!) in the first place.
Add Interest and Convenience With Wall-Mounted Pot Fillers
No matter the kitchen design, adding a wall-mounted pot filler will create an added element of interest and ease to the cooking experience, completing a space where friends and family will gather for years to come.
