Often overlooked, faucets can make something ordinary into something extraordinary according to Direct Interiors. When considering a new facet, looks are important as well as how they function is for water pressure and flow.
Four types to consider are:
Compression Faucets – The oldest type of faucet usually found in older homes and in utility sinks in newer homes with separate hot and cold water handles.
Ball Faucets – Very common Kitchen faucet that has a single handle that moves over a rounder ball shaped cap at the base of the faucet. You push it one way for cold and the other for hot.
Cartridge Faucets – Adjust the water volume with an up and down motion and use the left and right motion for temperature.
Disk faucets – A modern type faucet, it mixes the hot and cold water with two ceramic discs while controlling the pressure.
