Whenever you are either putting in a new kitchen sink or simply replacing your fixture, you are always going to find that having the most comfortable handle will be a must. You want to have the faucet to have a handle that is going to feel good in your hand while also being easy to maneuver.

Most faucets are made from brass simply because it is a tough material, however you will be able to find brass models that are covered with a shiny chrome finish - but you would only want to choose this type if it blens with the rest of your kitchen decor.

You want to have one that is nice and comfortable so that it is easy to use and lightweight in your hand. The right faucet will also be able to add quite a bit of pizzazz to your decor and you also have the option of a number of different decorative handles that you can use to replace that of a standard faucet.

Some homeowners like the look and feel of a single handle faucet, while others may want to have a double handle for controlling hot or cold. However, the majority of homeowners will opt for a dual handle faucet as they can be a lot easier and more comfortable to use while washing or preparing food. Today, there are some unique single handle faucet styles that will take on all of the functions of a dual handle while even having the nozzle act just like a detachable sprayer and more.

With all of the incredible options that are available today, you can come up with a design that will be both functional as well as beautiful. Single handled, dual handled, brass, brushed nickel, chrome finish or even gold plated, the possibilities are truly endless just as long as you shop around for the best fit to match both your budget as well as your needs.

As you shop, you will want to measure the size of your kitchen as well as the dimensions of your sink and take them into consideration before buying. With a smaller kitchen sink, you may want to think about getting a single handle kitchen faucet to fulfill all of your needs. Double handle faucets would require a relatively big sink. The bigger your kitchen and your sink, you can go for a double handle faucet along with a faucet sprayer and any additional features that you might be interested in having.

A single handle style faucet is going to be a much more compact unit that will have both the hot and cold gauges to control water all in one. This will make for less space being used in your kitchen and only one hole will be necessary to install. You can also install a single handle faucet with a kit that will have a side faucet that pulls out. Double handle versions will require three holes for installation, two for the gauges and then one more for the water spout.

All in all, the right faucet will bring new life to your kitchen and all of your daily tasks.
