Since there is now a wide variety for kitchen faucets, buying the appropriate one for your kitchen can be a daunting task. So, here are some tips to help you when buying kitchen faucets. First, you have to decide on the design that will best match your kitchen. You can choose from two-handle designs, single-handle design, or cross-shaped design. If you have a bigger sink, you can always opt for the two-handle design. However, the more popular designs are the cross-shaped. These are not only functional but also give your kitchen a customized look especially when matched with unique and stylish handle.
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.
Just like the most modern kitchen faucets, disc faucets have a single handle that controls temperature and water flow. These faucets function through the use of two discs within the valve that open and close in order to control the flow of hot and cold water. To control the water temperature you should do so using the side-to-side rotation of the handle. The cool thing with disc faucets is that they are of high quality and very reliable. Since they don't have many parts they don't leak a lot.
