The first thing you want to do before purchasing your new kitchen faucet is to search around and find out what type of design will fit into your kitchen. You may want to find something that is both stylish and will match the decor you currently have. Once you have chosen a faucet design then it is time to search around and get the best price. You may want to search online and compare different name brands so you can find one that fits into your specific budget. Some people will also use a designer who understands what works well in a kitchen. They can help you decide what type of faucet will fit with the type of kitchen and think that you have. There are many finishes and sizes so make sure that you use it as an expert before making your final decision.
Finish and Material. Kitchen faucets were made in chrome finishes for years. Today, however, different other finishing materials are used for the same. This includes bronze, nickel and stainless steel finishes for unique and impressive appearances. When choosing the finish, consider the durability. For instance PVD finishes are resistant to corrosion and scratching and offer surfaces that clean as good as new for many years. The inner construction is usually of brass metal. There are tubular and cast brass options with the cast being thicker and stronger, but both are equally good. The valves and how they are coated can determine their functionality, especially when handling hot and cold controls. Therefore, water temperature is also an important factor when you go shopping.
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.
