Are you trying a vintage look, a sleek contemporary look, a rustic old-world style, or something elegant and traditional? Nickel or tin faucets are ideal for traditional kitchens, copper or bronze faucets are great for old-world and country-style kitchens, and chrome or stainless steel faucets have a very modern look.

One of the first things you need to know before buying a faucet is the hole configuration. Most sinks have holes drilled for the faucet and sometimes accessories such as a sprayer, soap holder, hot drink faucet, or filtered water. 

Single-lever sinks for single-lever faucets, three-hole sinks for single-lever faucets with spray and/or accessories, and four-hole sinks for sinks with one or two handles with different accessories. If you have a built-in sink or apron, drill holes in the countertop behind the sink.
