Wall-Mounted Kitchen FaucetsAs you might guess, these are attached to the wall above the sink. They are often seen with farm sinks and sometimes vessel sinks. These faucets are becoming more popular since the apron or farm sinks have made a big hit in almost every style kitchen. Keep in mind when using a wall-mount faucet the water supply must extend up the wall above the sink.
One-Piece Faucets, Some sinks only have a single hole. If this is the case, the faucet you will need is a single handle faucet. This type only requires one hole for the spout and handle. (If you want to add a sprayer this will require an extra hole.) Faucet with Three Pieces, If your sink is one of the older types with three holes your faucet is probably a two handle. With one hole for the hot water, one for the cold and one for the spout there may be an extra one if a sprayer is present. Kitchen sinks of some types have combined soap dischargers and sprayers which shows how important it is to make sure of the number of holes.
Knowing that, you don't even have to dive deep into manuals and descriptions. It is enough to search for a particular faucet on your favorite online vendor site to see how others have rated it. Touch faucets without touch recognition cannot be considered quality products. If there are such for sale, they won't be able to earn positive feedback. Fear 3. Touch sensitive kitchen faucets are not suitable for families with young children. The benefits that touch sensitive faucets bring to families with young children can be somewhat counter intuitive. The most common reaction is fear that the faucet will be turned on and left running too often. But in real life, that is seldom the case. For a number of reasons, these faucets have turned out to be much more convenient for use in families with children than the non-sensitive ones.
One of the first things to know before shopping for a faucet is your hole configuration. Most sinks come with holes drilled to receive the faucet and sometimes accessories such as a sprayer, soap dispenser, hot beverage or filtered water faucet. One hole sinks are for single-control faucets, three hole are for single-control faucets with a sprayer and/or accessories and four holes are for single-control or two-handle sinks with various accessories. If you have an under-mount or apron front sink the holes are drilled into the countertop behind the sink.
