How to Pick Out a New Faucet
- Choose a great finish. There are a plethora of faucet finishes to choose from including: polished brass, chrome, brushed chrome, stainless steel, pewter, powder-coated enamel, and gold plating. Of course, you’ll want to be sure to choose a finish that will look great in your bathroom or kitchen, but you’ll also want to choose a finish that won’t look worn and tarnished a couple years down the line.
- Make a conscious decision between a single or double-handled faucet. Some people prefer to have the hot and cold water controlled by a single handle, while others like having two. If you want two handles, you can choose a faucet where both handles are mounted with the water spout or a widespread faucet with which they are mounted separately.
- Watch out for cheap interior components. No matter how good a faucet looks on the outside, it is only as good as the components on the inside! A poor-quality valve could make for unpleasant, abrupt changes in water temperature when you switch from cold to hot. Other cheap, plastic components simply won’t withstand the frequent use that they will get.
- Pay attention to warranties. Some faucets offer as much as a lifetime of protection against water leaks and drips. The longer the warranty, the better!
