Sink faucets run the gamut -- from old-fashioned to high-tech, soft-pewter-finish to jazzy epoxy, and single-lever to spread-fit.
Ask yourself three questions when you're attracted to clever, streamlined designs:
1. How well could you work the controls with greasy hands?
2. Can the spout fit over a large pan?
3. How easy would it be to clean or maintain the installation?
Whatever style you choose, you get pretty much what you pay for. Solid-brass workings, though pricey, are most durable. Ceramic- or plastic-disk valve designs are easier to maintain than older washer schemes.
