Kitchen faucets are probably one of the most neglected parts of the kitchen and yet these are very important to ensure hygiene and design. Before purchasing a faucet, you need to assess your kitchen needs and the space present in the kitchen. These modern day faucets combine functionality and high-end styling with plenty of designs to choose from. Almost everyone can benefit from the tremendous variety available these days. From elegant, minimalist chic faucets to antique looking Victorian inspired faucets, there are numerous styles available today.
Families with young children find the touch function extremely useful. It makes the water easier available for the little ones since they just need to tap the spout rather than reach the handle and manipulate it into the desired position. They will seldom leave the water running. Children love to tap the water off just for fun. But even if they forget, the water will be turned off automatically after some time of inactivity. I am not speaking here of the quality and longevity. In today's faucets, they are self-evident. The rubber washer systems have been replaced with ceramic valve cartridges. These cartridges are durable, the seal is tight and the faucets have lifelong warranties for leak-free performance. This may not be true, however, for some low-end items without brand names.
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.
