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.
The Sprayer. You have to decide if you would like to have a pull out or a pull down sprayer. If you want to clean the larger pots and pans in the sink easily, you will need to get the pull out faucet as this kind of faucets allow high arc spouts. On the other hand, if you prefer a cleaner look for your faucet, then you should go for the pull down sprayer.
