They have been around for a very long time. They are known as compression faucets as they work through compression of a washer against a valve seat which is usually at the base of the faucet. The cool thing with them is that they have separate knobs for hot and cold water. While they are great to have, they tend to develop leaks every now and then.
Finish and Material. Kitchen faucets were made in chrome finishes for years. Today, however, different other finishing materials are used for the same. This includes bronze, nickel and stainless steel finishes for unique and impressive appearances. When choosing the finish, consider the durability. For instance PVD finishes are resistant to corrosion and scratching and offer surfaces that clean as good as new for many years. The inner construction is usually of brass metal. There are tubular and cast brass options with the cast being thicker and stronger, but both are equally good. The valves and how they are coated can determine their functionality, especially when handling hot and cold controls. Therefore, water temperature is also an important factor when you go shopping.
The kitchen faucets that you get should stay in good condition and thus they should not change color. This will ensure that your kitchen will remain in good condition and they will not look misplaced. You should also get faucets that blend in well with your kitchen decor so that you can have a complete look in your home. The faucets should not drip so they can serve you without any problem. This will ensure that your kitchen remains dry and you can carry on with your daily activities without any disturbance.
