Today's faucets are commonly made from brass with various finishing such as gold plating and powder-coated enamel. However, brass contains lead which can cause lead poisoning that will eventually lead to many serious health problems. Due to this, all faucet manufacturers in the U.S. are not allowed to include more than 8 percent of this substance in their brass faucets, according to the Safe Drinking Water Act. If you are concerned about your health, you might want to look into other alternative such as ceramic faucets since ceramic does not contain dangerous chemicals that might harm our body.
First and foremost, you need to know the many different styles available: single handled faucets, dual/two handled faucets, pullout spray style (with single or dual handled faucets), wall mounted faucets, and bar sink faucets.

These two types can also come with a pullout spray, which can be used for cleaning the sink or washing vegetables.
