When using the kitchen faucets, you usually turn them on and off many times so you should get the ones that are firm and will serve you for a long time without getting spoilt. You should also know the number of holes that are in your kitchen so that you can buy the right faucets for them. Make sure you get one that has the right height so that you can use it without any problem. You should also look at the spout reach so that you can buy the one that is appropriate for your kitchen.
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.
You identify the faucets by their single handle that moves over a rounded metal ball that easily shifts and spins thus creating different water flows and temperatures. The ball has chambers and spring loaded rubber seals. The handle rotates easily allowing you an exact mix of hot and cold water. It's good to note that these faucets don't have washers. Due to the many parts in these faucets, they tend to leak more than other washerless faucets such as disc and cartridge.
