The kitchen is a place often used by all family members. Whether it is about serving food, preparing food, preparing tea or coffee, one thing is certain: the kitchen sink is among the most used objects in this room.

There are different types of kitchen faucets, classified according to certain criteria.

  • The material they are made of

Stainless steel kitchen faucets are the most common, because they are practical and durable. Stainless steel is an alloy of steel that contains at least 11% chromium in its composition.

Brass kitchen faucets are not as resistant as those made of stainless steel. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc in certain proportions, calculated carefully so that the properties of the water are not altered.

Bronze kitchen faucets have a beautiful aspect and complete a vintage or classic style.

  • The type of command

Two-handed faucets are the classic ones, with two separate valves that makes it easy to adjust water temperature and flow

One-handed faucets have a single handle that operates both cold and hot water

Hands-free faucets are equipped with sensors. Either you must touch the sensor to open the water flow, or the sensor is designed to detect movement and start the water flow automatically.
