The first step in selecting your kitchen faucet is determining how many holes there are in your sink or countertop. If you’re remodeling your space, the opportunities are endless, but if you’re keeping your existing sink and countertops, you’ll need to work with the setup you have.
- One Hole – Sinks with only one hole need a one-handle faucet.
- Two Holes – If your sink has two holes, you can install a one-handle faucet, plus a beverage faucet, soap dispenser, or an air switch to turn your garbage disposal on and off.
- Three Holes – Sinks with three holes can either feature a two-handle faucet or a one-handle faucet that includes a deck plate to cover the additional holes you’d prefer not to use.
- Four Holes – If your countertop has four holes you can customize your sink by pairing a one-handle faucet with a beverage faucet, a soap dispenser or an air switch for your garbage disposal.
