It needs to be well-made and of top-notch quality, if not it would only last you a couple of months. If you opt to buy any faucet that you can get your hands on, you stand the risk of spending money fixing it or replacing it repeatedly. Here is what to look for before you splash the cash for a kitchen faucet.
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.
Remember, different styles of faucets have different functions. Pot fillers have large arched spouts to allow enough space for you to place large vessels such as stock pots or water jugs beneath. If you want an even larger space, you should choose a wall mountable unit. Today, you can even find kitchen faucets that are equipped with convenient features such as tap-on controls and water purifiers. Nevertheless, these modern features are not available in every finish or style. Many kitchen faucet manufacturers have been dedicating themselves to making the highest quality and the most stylish faucets for many years, even generations. Although the nearest local hardware store surely can provide you with quality faucets, you can also browse the manufacturer's website to get more design ideas.
Are you trying for a vintage antique look, a sleek contemporary look, Old World rustic or something elegant and traditional? Nickel or pewter faucets are perfect for the traditional kitchen, copper or bronze are great for Old World and country style kitchens, and chrome or stainless steel faucets have a very contemporary look.
Pull-down faucets normally use a spring that makes them return back to the holder when having been pulled out. In a good faucet, the spray head will tend to return back to the holder without being directed by the human.
