Unfortunately, not every home enjoys the benefits of two handle faucets because many people think they are expensive. In fact, this practicality is the same reason why most people have single-handle faucets. There are many faucet manufacturers that create faucets with two handles. Some are made to sport the styling of classic homes while there are also those that were designed to look more modern. The wide variety of choices with regards to different kinds of faucets is one of the reasons why many choose to place them in their homes. Indeed, choosing two handle kitchen faucets as a plumbing fixture for your home will cost a little extra, but the benefits can make them really worth the extra cost.
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.
While you are at it, you might also consider installing the new kitchen faucet on your new sink and then install the faucet and sink combination into the new countertop at the same time. This way you will not have to work in such a tight place under the sink as you would have to when attaching a new faucet. Today there are more choices than ever before when it comes to faucet finishes. Brushed nickel is moving up in popularity, at least according to Moen. It is now second only to chrome in popularity. Other finishes such as oil rubbed bronze are also becoming more popular with consumers.
The best way to choose a kitchen faucet is by the quality of the product and its practicality and durability, as well as how if fits into the new décor and layout of the kitchen. With most faucets being turned on and off hundreds of times a day, and for many years, it is necessary to select one that not only looks great, but also provide durable service. There are generally two types of kitchen faucets in use today. Single-handle faucets are centersets where hot and cold are controlled by one lever or knob that‘s often part of the spout. The most common type of kitchen faucet is the widespread kitchen faucet. This type of faucet requires three separate holes and consists of the hot-water valve, the cold-water valve and the spout all being mounted separately.
