Ready to replace your kitchen faucet? Here are a few things to keep in mind when it’s time to make your selection:

  1. How many handles does your existing faucet have, and how many do you want your new faucet to have? Most kitchen faucets have one or two.
    • There are options available if you choose a faucet that requires less holes than you have in your current sink/countertop. You could add a soap dispenser or a deck plate.
  2. Does your kitchen faucet have a side spray? If it does and you like this feature, you might consider a faucet with a pull-down spray.
  3. Do you prefer a faucet with or without a deck plate? Click the following links to view an example of each: Faucet with a deck plate, Faucet without a deck plate
  4. What finish would you like? Today’s faucets come in a wide variety of finishes including chrome, stainless, bronze, black, and many more, depending on the manufacturer.
