Pros: Two-handled faucets have dedicated hot and cold water handles, allowing for more sensitive adjustments to water temperature as well as flow rate. Also, if one of the handles springs a leak, you can turn off the shut-off valve to the leaking handle and still use the faucet until you fix the leaking handle. Most allow you to change the handles and faucet independently from the plumbing, making for easy style changes.
Faucet spouts vary a lot in height and reach, and most of the time you can just choose the look you like best. But if you have a shelf above the sink, a tall spout may not fit. With a three-bowl kitchen sink, a spout with a short reach may not extend to all the bowls. A bath faucet with a short reach might cause you to slop water behind the spout when you wash your hands.
Do you have a kitchen that is sleek and contemporary, or one that is reminiscent of a farmhouse kitchen? Styles range from historically detailed to simple, clean lines, curves or 90-degree angles. This one item will shift the look of your kitchen to express the style you prefer. Again, the options are endless. But by the time you’re ready to pick the style, your kitchen style should already be established, which will help narrow down the options. Work with your designer to land on the best one for you.
Homeowners who are just replacing their sink-mounted faucet will need to take count of how many faucet holes are available. If the new faucet requires four holes, but the sink only has three then it’s time to continue shopping. Single handle faucets, though, will typically include a deck plate to cover any unused holes like if you’re moving from a two-handle to a single-handle configuration.
You may find height expressed as deck to top of faucet and/or deck to aerator. Make certain you are choosing a faucet with adequate height to accommodate the items you’ll be washing or filling. The higher the spout, the easier it is to fit tall pots under it for filling or cleaning. If you have a shelf above your sink or a wide window ledge, a tall faucet may not fit.
This important (and often overlooked!) measurement refers to the horizontal distance from the faucet spout to its point of connection with the sink or countertop. In other words, how far the faucet extends into the sink. This measurement determines how large an arc your faucet can cover within the sink basin. This aspect of your faucet also needs to be coordinated with your sink size so the water stream does not hit too far back or forward within the basin.
