When renovating a kitchen, every homeowner wants to turn an ordinary space into a trendy and modern kitchen. A great way to modernize the kitchen is by installing brand new kitchen faucets. Typically, kitchen faucets are constructed from solid stainless steel or from solid brass. Both steel and brass are very durable and will withstand heavy use. Furthermore, kitchen faucets are available in various configurations including single hole, 3 hole, and 4 hole configurations. The type of faucet will depend on the number of openings in the kitchen countertop. Kitchen faucets are an essential part of the kitchen and should, therefore, be durable as well as practical for everyday use. The finish of the kitchen faucets will depend on the overall décor and should accentuate and complement the newly designed kitchen.
There are many different types and styles of bathroom faucets available today. The type of faucet required will depend on the spread, which is the number of openings in the countertop. The most common bathroom faucet types are single lever, center-set, and 3-piece sets. A single lever faucet is simple to install and features a single handle that controls the water pressure and temperature. Furthermore, there are many marvelous designs that will accentuate any bath decor. A center set faucet typically comes as a one-piece set. It is used to cover a 4 inch spread. Many of these faucets are quite fashionable and easy to install. Moreover, three-piece faucet sets come in many different styles and need three separate holes: one for each handle, and one for the spout. The three pieces are not connected and can be mounted as far as 16 inches apart.
When shopping for bathroom or kitchen fixtures, combo deals are a great way to save time and money.

Bar faucets should be compact yet sturdy. Although the bar faucets will not be as heavily used as kitchen faucets, it is still important that they last a long time without needing repair or replacement. Bar faucets are typically single lever faucets and require only one countertop opening for installation. They are most often used to wash glassware, prep foods, as well as to clean the prep area around the bar. Bar faucets are available in many different sizes, styles, as well as finishes. Typically, it is recommended that the finish of the bar faucet matches the finish of the kitchen faucet; however, if the bar area and the kitchen sink area are not near each other, it is not necessary to match the finishes.
Bathtub faucets are available in an array of styles, sizes, as well as finishes. Furthermore, bathtub faucets are typically 3-piece faucets or 5-piece faucets. The 3-piece bathtub faucets feature a spout and two handles, one for the hot water and one for the cold. Furthermore, the 5-piece tub faucets feature a spout, two handles, as well as a handheld shower, and a diverter. The diverter is used to switch the water flow from the tub spout to the handheld shower. Furthermore, bathtub faucets can be deck mounted, wall mounted, or free standing. The type and style of the bathtub faucet will depend on the type of a bathtub that is installed as well as the overall decor of the bathroom.

The trim for the shower faucets is available in many different finishes to match other fixtures in the bathroom.
