Number of Holes. This factor not only applies to the modern kitchen faucet that you intend to get for your kitchen sink. For any faucet that you want to buy for your kitchen, you will have to find out the number of holes in your sink or countertop first to avoid purchasing the wrong type. If your countertop has three holes, make sure that you buy the right kind with three holes installation or you might have to think of a way to cover the other holes.
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.
A kitchen faucet with cleverly engineered pull-out function allows you to fill the pots that are placed on the counter-top or even directly on the cooking surface without the need of fitting them under the faucet. When washing vegetables, it allows you to direct the stream right where you need it and even change conveniently to the spray mode. The button is normally placed right on the spray head. Not all pull-out faucets have the water-off function available right on the spray head. There are some popular models, however, that offer that too. If you think you will often pull the spray head over the edge of the sink, the water-off button can come in handy.
