Faucet models are numerous nowadays, so you’ll want to have a good understanding of not only your style criteria but also of the tasks you’ll want to accomplish while using your faucet when you go to make your choice. These considerations will vary from room to room, and the two primary rooms to consider are your kitchen and bathroom.
Though you may also need to consider bar faucets, your primary kitchen faucet choice will be the one for over the sink. From a practical standpoint, you’ll want to consider the tasks you’ll be doing in the kitchen. If you think you’ll be washing larger items, such as cutting boards or large pots and pans, a faucet with a long stem is a must. Long stem types of faucets are designed to give you a high arc so you can maneuver large items under the water stream. You may also want to think about a faucet with an extendable pullout sprayer for easier rinsing.
