Replacing the kitchen faucet is one way to update the look of your kitchen, or resolve a leaking faucet. Before going to the home improvement center to purchase a faucet, take some time to determine what type of faucet you need. When selecting a kitchen faucet, you want a faucet that will be functional and add to the decor of your kitchen. Take a few minutes to inspect your faucet installation needs along with the colors and design of your kitchen. Have this information with you when selecting your new kitchen faucet at the store.
Grab a piece of paper and pencil to write down notes as you evaluate your kitchen faucet needs.
Think about the type of sprayer you want on your faucet. Decide between a separate sprayer or a sprayer that pulls out from the faucet spout.
