Buying Guide

In buying a kitchen faucet, your selection might be driven by style, functionality, or durability. Consider that there are many features with the latest technology to make your life easier. Keep your habits in mind. You may not need all the bells and whistles, so saving on a more modest option would be a good idea for some. Picking a kitchen faucet is an important decision, and there are an array of options available for you.

Hole Configuration

Make sure the faucet you choose is compatible with your sink. For example, if your sink has two holes and you want a side spray, that means your only option is a single-handle faucet. Some two-handle faucets require three holes, while others only need two. Just be aware of this, so you get the right match.

Types of Kitchen Sink Faucets

  • Widespread Faucets - these are much like center-set faucets. It's just that widespread faucets are installed with the spout spread apart from the handles (usually placed anywhere from 6-16 inches).
  • Pull-out Faucets - this is a feature where the faucet can be pulled out and used as a spray wand. It gives you more flexibility and range of motion than most other options.
  • Pull-down Faucets - this is similar to the pull-out feature, except these are usually found in high arc faucets, and the spray head can be pulled down for more excellent range and flexibility.
  • Faucets with Side Sprayers - are used to extend your reach the same way as a detachable spray head on a pull-out faucet, but unlike pull-out faucets, the side sprayer rests next to the faucet.

Faucet Technology

Faucets have come a long way. There are hands-free features, which may seem unnecessary, but if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, it makes perfect sense to spend the extra money. Not only does this technology speed up your work, but it also ensures better hygiene. Take your kitchen sink experience into a whole new dimension. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Motion-Sensor - wave goodbye to germs and hello to convenience and cleanliness. With just a wave of your hand, you can turn the water on and off. These faucets have sensors that detect your hand movement to activate the flow of water.
  • Touch-Sensitive Faucets - not precisely "hands-free," this feature still gives you a lot of the same convenience. With just a simple touch, you can turn the water on and off even if your hands are full and your ten fingers are messy (use the back of your hand). A simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle can activate the water flow.


Choose a faucet color that will match your design and complete your kitchen update. There are many options here: chrome, black, biscuit, brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, stainless steel, polished brass, polished nickel, satin nickel, Venetian bronze, and more!

Faucet Mounting Options

  • Deck-mount faucets - these are mounted directly onto the countertop, and they rest on the sink. This is by far the most common mount type.
  • Wall-mount faucets - are mounted on the wall into a vertical surface. They are usually hung above the sink, allowing easy cleaning of the countertop and even tall pots, pans, and other items.

Number of Handles

  • Single-handle faucets - by far the most popular choice in kitchens. With just one handle, the temperature is changed by the direction of rotation. They are easier to operate, thus their popularity.
  • Double-handle faucets - not precisely the most convenient feature, but they look great! Consider a 2-handle option with a motion sensor to get the best of both worlds.


The height of the faucet should accommodate your usage. You should consider the arc of the faucet. High-arc installations are suitable for washing large pots and pans, and they give you more space above the rim of the sink. Another consideration is the reach; this has to do with your preference and how far you want the spout to extend into the sink.


Another factor that can determine the durability of the faucet is the material. The most commonly used materials are stainless steel, solid brass, brass, and bronze.

ADA Compliance

ADA-compliant faucets are designed for ease of use to be more accommodating to users with special needs. This means they are made to function using just one hand to operate them and with a maximum of five pounds of force (no need for grasping or twisting).

Water Conservation

Perhaps one of the most significant problems with many faucets is their propensity to wastewater during use. Running a faucet can use an incredible amount of water over a year. Fortunately, many kitchen sink faucets are made to combat that water waste by lowering the amount of water used per second and ensuring efficient faucets. You can look for the WaterSense label, which indicates high performance and water efficiency. These faucets reduce water use by about 30 percent or more in your home. That saves you money on your utility bills without sacrificing performance. PlumbersStock offers an array of WaterSense-certified faucets.
