Single handle. Kitchen faucets are available in the single handle versions today. These are the simplest amongst all the designs and styles in the market. These fixtures have almost all design elements that you would need, ranging from cold and hot gauges as well as a water spout enclosed in one fixture. All that is needed is a single hole or outlet over the countertop or sink. In this manner, such single handled faucets free space inside the kitchen. The adjustable pressure and water temperature as well as ease of cleaning make thee faucets a perfect choice. Special kits are also available these days, along with side pulling faucets. You can select such single handled versions according to the finish and style you desire.
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.
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.
