Form Follows Function
How will you be using your faucet? It's important to choose a faucet that ties in perfectly with your daily routine.
From washing dishes to everyday meal prep, deciding on a high arc faucet with a pull-down dual spray can be a crucial pick.
Take time to weigh your options. Deciding on a filtered faucet or no mess touchless faucet can make all the difference.
You also have to consider the installation and measurement details. Do you like the clean single-handle look? Or do you prefer a visually pleasing two-handle layout with a side spray?
Knowing how many holes your sink has, if you like pull-out or pull-down handles, and how you'll mount your faucet is key to making sound use and design choices.
Also, be wary of the current issues your faucet may have. Does it drip? Do you have issues with the temperature being too hot or cold? Maybe you like to dry dishes in the sink or have a soap dispenser at the ready. Then choosing the proper valves and accessories will make all the difference.
Take a look at your sink and shortlist what's most important to you.

Choosing a 3-hole sink with a 4" spread gives you the most faucet options, including the use of a 4" centerset, 4" mini-spread or a center-hole faucet with a base plate. However, some people prefer the simplicity of center-hole designs, or the traditional appeal of 8" spreads. The choice is yours to make, and enjoy.
Consider how a new faucet will last. Or, more importantly, how long it will last without dripping. Faucets should offer long-term performance and be drip-free for life. Ceramic Disc Valving utilizes discs made of hardened ceramic, a durable material that won't wear out and won't leak even under the toughest water conditions.
Select bathroom and kitchen faucets feature a pull out or pull down spout in which the end of the spout of the faucet can e ‘pulled out' from the rest of the spout similar to a side spray. These faucets allow you to bring the water flow to where you need it in the sink.
If you're concerned with conserving water, look for WaterSense certified toilets. Developed by the Environmental Protection Agency, the WaterSense label is used on toilets and faucets that are certified by independent laboratory testing to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency.
