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.
Your Budget. In case you are not aware, the price tag of a kitchen faucet can range from a couple of hundreds to even a thousand dollar. These modern designs are usually manufactured by renowned brands and their products can be very expensive but you are paying for their exquisite design and quality. Consider the above points before you decide whether you really want to get modern kitchen faucets. They will indeed add on to the overall elegant outlook of your kitchen but you must also think about its durability and convenience for you when you are working in the kitchen.
Single handle: A single handle faucet is able to offer easy and quick temperature adjustments and water flow using one hand, which is highly beneficial if you are using the other hand elsewhere. A faucet of this type is likely to require one or more sink holes, and this is likely to depend on the style and layout of the sink. Also, many of these faucets are likely to feature a side spray system.
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.
