Wall-mounted: One of the more unique styled kitchen faucets is those that are designed to wall-mount in an area just above the sink. They aren't reliant on the sink deck holes. The installation process for a sink design of this type is likely to be more complicated since the water supply needs to reach above the work surface. If you are looking for a more distinct or antique styled kitchen, you will certainly appreciate the many qualities of this type of faucet system.
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.
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.
