You can also decide to buy a new sink, especially can be the case if you choose a faucet mounted on the deck and the current is mounted on the wall.

Where to start

When you begin your search you will have to make choices between the peak type, height and number of shooters.

The height can vary from 10 to 18 inches so choosing the right height will be based on the size of your sink.

The style of the bill is something to consider. The “gooseneck” or high arches are taps trend, as it allows more room for cleaning large pots or other tasks.

When choosing materials and finishes either nickel, bronze, black, stainless steel, etc., be sure to buy accessories such as soap dispensers from the same collection, because if they are from different manufacturers, finishing varies slightly.
