One of the first things to know before shopping for a faucet is your hole configuration. Most sinks come with holes drilled to receive the faucet and sometimes accessories such as a sprayer, soap dispenser, hot beverage or filtered water faucet. One hole sinks are for single-control faucets, three hole are for single-control faucets with a sprayer and/or accessories and four holes are for single-control or two-handle sinks with various accessories. If you have an under-mount or apron front sink the holes are drilled into the countertop behind the sink.
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. Single handled units are quick and easy to operate since it only has one lever. On the other hand, dual handled consist of a hot water valve and a cold water valve. These two types can also come with a pullout spray, which can be used for cleaning the sink or washing vegetables.
Two-handle faucets (one hot and one cold) are not as popular as one handle because they are not as easy to use. They do have a classic look that makes a strong fashion statement in Victorian and other period style kitchens.
