Second, you also have to look into the types of finish. The most affordable finish for a kitchen faucet is a chrome finish. This is not only affordable but it also has an extended warranty on scratches that is why lots of homeowners prefer this. However, if you don?t like chrome finish, you can always choose one with more colorful enamel coatings. Just be reminded that this type is more expensive and is more susceptible to chipping and scratches. And lastly, you have to know the different types of faucet such as the compression valves, the ball valves, the ceramic disk, and the cartridge faucet. It is important that you know each of these types so that it will be easier for you to determine which one will work best for your kitchen.
Kitchen faucets ease kitchen chores and are therefore of great importance. The truth however is that there are lots of different types of kitchen faucets on the market today. As such, you need to be clear about what you want to make it easier for you to make the right decision when it comes to the purchase and installation of a kitchen faucet. This means taking several factors into consideration. These considerations will not only help you to get the best fitting but also the best at a rate that is affordable for you.
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.
