Kitchen Faucet Guide:

  1. Choose a Handle – There are typically two types of faucet handles found in kitchens. One is a rotating handle that changes temperature when moved directionally and the other has two handles — one for hot and one for cold water. If you’re looking to go high-tech, they also make hands-free kitchen faucets that are touch- or motion-oriented.
  2. Choose a Sink Type – Take a look at your current sink to see how many holes are available. New faucets will indicate how many mounting holes are needed for installation. If you are not updating your sink, you will want to make sure that your new faucet is compatible.
  3. Choose a Finish – What finish will best match your kitchen setup? Choose from bronze, chrome, nickel, and stainless steel. All of these options can be beautiful when paired with the right kitchen design. Choose your favorite!
