For such a seemingly simple thing a kitchen faucet actually has an amazing number of features. That variety covers the gamut. Type, mount options, not to mention material and finish, spout height and reach, or number of handles. Then there are the new technologies that are beginning to find their way into faucets, such as hands-free or touch-on. How to make sense of all this?
Which type of faucet is better, a pull-down model or a pull-out? Of course, you’ll guess at once that there’s no answer to that question. It all depends on the model, its unique features, and – most of all – personal preference. But there are differences that can make one over the other a better choice for you.
