Kitchen faucet choice

The kitchen faucet gets heavy-duty use,just about every activity requires water. But how to find a tap that's up to the task? Let me give some advice to you.

Here are some kitchen faucet styles below:
Single-handle Faucet: In this case, there is one lever or knob that often forms a part of the spout and controls hot as well as cold water.
Two-handle Faucet: This type of kitchen faucet has the spout as well as both the valves combined on a single base unit.
Widespread Faucet: Widespread Faucet has all the three items - hot-water valve, cold-water valve and spout, mounted separately.
Restaurant Style. Large spray heads are attached to the end of a long hose that hangs from the wall near the sink, offering an easy way to grasp and spray with one hand.
Chrome and brass fixtures are the most common type and are available in a variety of polished and brushed finishes. Pewter, nickel, and copper are also available.
Many easy-care finishes won't corrode, tarnish, or discolor.
Powder-coat epoxy can give faucets a touch of vibrant color.
Specialized finishes such as brushed nickel, matte brass, antiqued bronze, and even black iron can give your bathroom or kitchen unique style.

With a good valve, water temperature shouldn't change abruptly as you adjust from cold to hot. In addition, to prevent burns, a scald-guard or temperature-limit feature is offered by several makers for single-control faucets. With these, you can remove the handle and adjust the maximum water temperature the faucet will deliver—a wise feature if you have small children (most plumbing codes now require these types of valves in new residential construction).For water conservation, all new faucets are now mandated to deliver no more than 2.5 gallons per minute; some provide additional adjustable flow rate restrictors.
