Two handled. Kitchen faucets are also available in two handled varieties. There are special controls for cold and hot water as well as pressure of water and its temperature. You need to have three outlets on the sink or countertop to install such faucets. One outlet is for the spout of the faucet while the other two are for the gauges. Most of these varieties of faucets come with antique Victorian appearances to them. However, you can also select from urban and chic looking styles.
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.
There are two main types of cartridge faucets: one and two handle faucets. A single handle faucet operates in an up/down motion to adjust water volume and left/right motion to adjust the temperature. From outside, a double handle cartridge faucet is identical to a compression washer faucet. You can tell the difference by noting how the handle feels when used. A compression faucet requires you to tighten down the washer in order to close water flow while a cartridge faucet requires smooth and consistent action to close water flow. When you move the faucet for just ½ turn you are able to move the handle from on to off position.
