The faucets you choose for your home can completely change the look of your bathroom vanity or kitchen sink area. If you’re in the market for a new faucet, make sure you know your options before purchasing. Even if two faucets look similar, they can function differently, so you must know your options.

Types of Faucets

There are four main types of faucets:

  • Ball
  • Cartridge
  • Compression 
  • Disk

Each type has its own benefits and is best suited to certain rooms and purposes.

Ball Faucets

This design features an interior ball assembly that controls the flow of water. These faucets have single handles and are often the most affordable.

Cartridge Faucets

This type of faucet has fewer parts than other designs. It uses an interior cartridge that regulates the flow of water. There is no washer inside, and these faucets can be either single- or double-handled.

Compression Faucets

These are the easiest faucets to repair, and they rely on interior rubber washers to seal off the water. They have two handles and are notable because of the twisting action required to stop the water flow.

Disc Faucets

Disc faucets use reliable, new technology to regulate water flow. A single handle (often on the side) moves interior ceramic discs up and down to increase or decrease water. There are no washers within.

Bathroom Faucets

Ball faucets are excellent for bathroom sinks and were the first washerless models. Disc faucets are also used in many bathrooms and benefit people struggling with grip issues. Cartridge faucets are excellent bathroom faucets for two-handle sinks.

Categories of bathroom faucets include tub faucets, shower faucets, lavatory faucets, and vessel faucets.

Compression washer faucets generally are not used in bathrooms and are more common in laundry rooms at utility sinks. While they are older and less expensive, they are also not as durable, and the twisting action may not be desirable for your bathroom.

Kitchen Faucets

Kitchen faucets are characterized by a more elongated neck and higher position than bathroom faucets. They are designed to allow room for pans, pots, and dishes under them for filling and washing.

Styles of kitchen faucets include pull-down, pull-out, pot fillers, bar faucets, bridge faucets, traditional faucets, and others!

Disc faucets and ball faucets often make the best kitchen faucets, and most often, they are designed with only one handle for ease of use and convenience. With single-handed kitchen faucets, a bump with the arm up or down can control water flow if the user has full hands!

How to Buy the Perfect Faucet

To find a great faucet for your bar, bathroom, kitchen, or utility sink, first, determine the purpose it will fulfill and the room it will be installed in. 

Other crucial points to consider include the following:

  • If you want a sleek-looking basic faucet, consider a single-handle ball type
  • If you want easy repairs, go with a cartridge faucet
  • A disc faucet can be costly to fix but is the most modern and long-lasting
  • If you have an older home with compression faucets, consult a plumber before upgrading to a different type.

You must also consider the sink configuration; most home sinks have either one or two holes pre-drilled to fit one or two handles, respectively.

Faucet Finishes to Finish Your Look

Once you’ve chosen your faucet's style, type, and use, you must choose its finish. The most popular are:

  • Brass
  • Polished chrome
  • Stainless steel
  • Brushed nickel
  • Bronze

Whether you’re shopping for kitchen or bathroom faucets, you should purchase ones that complement each other. For example, a kitchen sink faucet and a pot filler, or a bathroom sink faucet along with a tub faucet or shower faucet.
