Q: I am way overdue to install a new kitchen faucet. I want a one-handle style with pull spray, but I’m behind on the new faucet technology. To make my choice easier, can you please bring me up to speed on new kitchen faucets? — Claire, Ohio

A: A lot of modern upgrades and options are available for new kitchen faucets. Since you’re looking for a one-handle kitchen faucet with a pull spray, I’ll go over the basics for just that one type of faucet.

You should consider and choose your new kitchen faucet options from these three categories:

• PULL TYPE

Decide if you want a pullout or pull-down spray. Pullout is nice for filling pots, while pull-down is great for washing the sink bowl.

• SPRAY HEAD

You can choose between multi-spray options or just a basic spray head.

• TOUCHLESS

Finally, you can even add electronic touchless technology to your one-handle faucet. I hope this info helps you get a handle on your new kitchen faucet options.
