The two handle wall mount faucets come in styles ranging from old country farmhouse like the American Standard Heritage Wall Mount to the super modern contemporary (I'm to cool to talk to you) Kohler Karbon Wall-Mount. These faucet styles have a lot of character and personality, not to mention they are very functional and good conversation pieces. If you've got some flair in your personality, these faucets might be the way to go. Another catchy faucet which tends to aire on the traditional side is the Bridge Faucet. This is still a two handle faucet, just turned upright with some of the plumbing that is usually hidden under the counter now above-board. Some of these look like they could be the first faucet ever invented and they probably were fashioned this way back in the day. So if you want to go REALLY old school and are planning on having the founding fathers over for supper, the Pegasus Bridge Style Faucet might be for you.
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?
Time for chemistry class. Faucet exteriors are assaulted with charged metal atoms. These particles bond chemically to the surface of the base metal by a procedure called physical vapor deposition, or PVD. The issue is that different metals have an effect on assorted finishes. Even nickel and bronze. The evaluation team discovered that faucets with PVD finishes stood strong despite their honest attempts to scratch and mar them. PVD finishes are not 100% bullet proof however and heavy-duty corrosives (i.e. drain cleaner) can lightly discolor them.
