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.
The good news is lifetime warranties that include leaks and stains is about customary in the faucet trade. With credit to technology, most accomplish the task of delivering water remarkably well. Aside from the least expensive faucets sold, today's kitchen fixtures are built with better valves and hardier finishes. So performance is not a true measuring stick - they all do a good job of that. What is worthy of noting is what happens to the faucet with day by day wear. Just how does it stay resistant to scratches, stains, bumps and bruises?
As you might guess, these are attached to the wall above the sink. They are often seen with farm sinks and sometimes vessel sinks. These faucets are becoming more popular since the apron or farm sinks have made a big hit in almost every style kitchen. Keep in mind when using a wall-mount faucet the water supply must extend up the wall above the sink.
There are basically two groups of kitchen faucets. They are wall mounted or sink mounted. While wall mounted kitchen faucets were common, today most kitchen faucets are mounted into the top of sinks.
Double handle faucets are more classic-looking and fit into a single hole in the worktop. They come with separate levers that control hot and cold water. These offer a better option for controlling temperatures when compared to single-level faucets.
