Of all the fixtures and appliances the kitchen faucet is probably the one we use the most. According to faucet manufacturer KWC, the average family uses the kitchen faucet more than 40 times a day. Whether it's hand washing, rinsing off dishes, filling a pasta pot or washing vegetables, the kitchen faucet gets a real workout every day. So when it's time to buy a new faucet you need to know how to choose one that will do it's job and will keep doing it for years to come. But, not to worry, this guide should take much of the fear and loathing out of selecting a new faucet.
In selecting a kitchen faucet you will want to consider the kitchen sink. Kitchen sinks usually come with from one to four or more holes to accommodate various types of kitchen faucets. If you are considering changing a faucet on an existing sink, it is better to select a faucet to fits the sink's current hole configuration. If you want to change from a three-hole type faucet to a single-hole one you will be left with open holes that will need to be filled. On the other hand if you try to knock out additional holes to change from a single-mount to a three-hole type faucet you run the risk of damaging an existing sink. Therefore you will find it much easier to also install a new kitchen sink and faucet together because you can choose any kind of kitchen faucet and sink that is compatible.
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.
