There may be a number of well-grounded reasons for not having touch sensitive faucets in your kitchen. The most widespread one is by far the price that is much higher for touch faucets than for their non-sensitive versions. Some other reasons might be affection for traditional ways, firm determination not to spoil yourself and your family with too effortless ways or plain reluctance to mess with batteries when they need to be changed.
Single handle faucets still make up more than 80% of faucet sales and are popular with builders. These faucets are basic and have a single handle that controls temperature and flow. These are available with a side spray which is much less expensive than the pull-out spray faucets. They also allow you to have a spray with a vintage-look faucet.
Apart of that, you may want to know how long a distance the wand retracts from. On some faucets, the wand will come back to the dock from any point where you release it. Others will need to be brought close to the dock to activate the forces that pull it in.
One of the first things to know before shopping for a faucet is your hole configuration. Most sinks come with holes drilled to receive the faucet and sometimes accessories such as a sprayer, soap dispenser, hot beverage or filtered water faucet. One hole sinks are for single-control faucets, three hole are for single-control faucets with a sprayer and/or accessories and four holes are for single-control or two-handle sinks with various accessories. If you have an under-mount or apron front sink the holes are drilled into the countertop behind the sink.
