To disassemble unscrew the bonnet from the faucet, using slip-joint pliers. Remove the valve stem, keeping in mind this has reverse threads, so unscrew it by turning it clockwise. Older compression faucets may have corroded handles that can be difficult to remove. Most hardware stores and rental centers have a specialty tool called a Handle Puller which makes the job easier.
For pull-down models, the hose needs to be guided through the faucet body and spout, for touch sensitive models, there will be a battery pack that needs to be connected to the contacts.
Are you trying for a vintage antique look, a sleek contemporary look, Old World rustic or something elegant and traditional? Nickel or pewter faucets are perfect for the traditional kitchen, copper or bronze are great for Old World and country style kitchens, and chrome or stainless steel faucets have a very contemporary look.
