Most homeowners think of form first but let‘s focus on the practical. After all, you do not want to be calling the plumber every month to repair your faucet if you can avoid it. One critical issue is parts availability. Are parts readily available for the faucet? Will those parts be available in five years? In ten? Two faucets commonly have parts that you can find at nearly every parts house: Moen and Delta. Both have a wide variety of styles available and this is usually, but not always, a plus. It is a good because you can find a faucet to fit most decor. It can be trouble, though, because styles come and go; when something goes out of style parts often become rare, then unavailable. Without parts, one broken faucet may force you to change several faucets to have a matching set, replacement becomes the only option. Ask the salesperson to show you faucets that use time-tested cartridges, not fancy new ones.
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.
