Replacement Faucet Handle Designs

Though replacing broken sink handles is undoubtedly a big reason to buy them, it isn’t the only reason; in fact, one of the most popular reasons to purchase replacement faucet handles is to improve the design of the bathroom overall. After all, let’s face it; if you buy a cheap sink faucet set, the function might be there, but the design is more than likely lacking; buying a pair of new handles can undoubtedly help with that. We offer some of the best handle designs, from modern lever handles to classic handle inserts that work best as simple replacements. Plus, with such high-quality brands like Moen and more, you know you are getting a great product with every purchase. Without a doubt, our supply of faucet handle parts is beautiful, classy, functional, and a perfect remedy to give your sink just a bit extra pizzazz in the overall design scheme of your bathroom.

How to Install Faucet Handles

Of course, once you purchase your handles, chances are you may need help installing them (if you are a beginner, of course). Unfortunately, all sinks are different depending on the model, so there isn’t an all-encompassing formula you can follow. But, we can give you a few easy directions on some of our basic models. Here are just a few:

Sink Inserts

  • Overall, sink inserts are the easiest faucet handles to install. Providing you have a base to install the handle insert into, all you need to do is insert the nipple into the receiving end and screw! It’s that easy and should take no more than a few minutes at the longest.

Simple Twist Faucet Handles

Lever handles, unfortunately, are a bit more labor-intensive; follow these directions to complete the job:

  • Unscrew the screw running through the entirety of the handle (typically, the screw is directly in the middle on the top. You may need to remove the temperature signifier cap).
  • Remove the handle.
  • Put the replacement handle over the valve that is now exposed. NOTE: You may need to wriggle the handle around a bit to ensure it’s attached sufficiently.
  • Screw the handle back in, but make sure the screw is not too tight, or you won’t be able to turn the handle.

How to Install a Single-Handle Kitchen Faucet

Shut Off the Water

Before beginning, turn off the water at the shutoff valves under the sink (Image 1). Open the faucet to drain any excess water.

Use a small adjustable wrench to disconnect the hot- and cold-water supply lines from the shutoff valves (Image 2).

unscrew coupling nuts from supply tubes to faucet

lift out old faucet and disconnect sprayer hose

Remove the Old Faucet

Using a basin wrench, reach up behind the faucet, and unscrew the coupling nuts connecting the supply tubes to the faucet (figure 1).

Use the basin wrench to remove the mounting nuts holding the faucet in place (figure 2).

With the mounting nuts disconnected, lift out the old faucet, and use an adjustable wrench to disconnect the sprayer hose from the assembly (figure 3).
Lift out the sprayer hose. After the faucet is removed, use a scouring pad to clean the sink surface thoroughly. If the sprayer-hose escutcheon cap is in good shape, you may want to leave it on. If not, replace it with the one included with the new faucet.

Position the New Sprayer Hose

Slip the new sprayer hose down through the sprayer hole, and feed it up through the center faucet hole. Use an adjustable wrench to connect the hose to the sprayer nipple.

Pro Tip

It's time to connect the new faucet's fittings with the water-supply lines. The manufacturer's instructions may direct you to set the new faucet assembly in place, then crawl back under the sink to make the new connections. Save yourself from struggling in cramped quarters by making all the connections you can before setting the new assembly in place. Then feed the connected lines down through the hole in the sink. With the attachments at the base of the faucet assembly already in place, the only work you'll need to do under the sink is to connect the supply lines to the shutoff valves.

Attach the Flexible Connectors

The hot and cold supply tubes on the faucet may vary in length, depending on the brand. You may want to attach flexible connectors to adapt the faucet for a particular installation. If so, attach them to the fittings on the faucet's supply tubes. Use two wrenches to tighten each connection -- one to hold the faucet-fitting stationary and one to turn and tighten the female fitting on the flexible connector. This two-wrench technique will help prevent twisting and damaging the faucet's copper supply lines.

(Note: Depending on the size of the hole, you may have a tight fit and thus be able to attach only one flexible connector before seating the faucet assembly. In that case, you may need to wait and attach one of them from underneath the sink once the faucet's in place.)

seat the faucet once gasket lines up correctly

install washer and nut to end bolts of faucet

Seat the Faucet

Insert and feed the connectors and supply lines into the center hole, and, making sure that the faucet's gasket lines up correctly, seat the faucet (Image 1).

From under the sink, install a washer and nut -- or a plastic nut-washer combo (Image 2) -- to the end bolts that will hold the faucet in place. Tighten the nuts by hand, then tighten with a basin wrench.

attach the second flexible connector

attach male ends of connectors to shutof valves

Tighten the Connections

Attach the second flexible connector if you haven't already (Image 1), and attach the male ends of the connectors to the shutoff valves (Image 2). Tighten the connections with an adjustable wrench. Turn the water on at the shutoff valves, and turn on the faucet to check whether it's working properly.

Of all the working parts in a kitchen, the faucet might be the one we use the most. According to the EPA, each American uses an average of 88 gallons of water a day, and a lot of it is to wash hands, rinse off produce, fill the tea kettle, or simply get a glass of water.

Today, these workaholic fixtures come in a wider variety of price points than ever before. You can purchase a kitchen faucet for as little as $15, although we recommend spending more than that to ensure its durability. After all, if you’re going to be using your kitchen faucet so frequently, it’s best to buy one that’ll last.

Better manufacturing and engineering help today’s faucets stay drip-free and longer-lasting, and quick-connect fittings have made them a cinch to install. Meanwhile, the number of designs and features has exploded into a dizzying array of choices. No matter how fancy or simple the faucet, however, they all contain the same basic elements. We’ll examine these in more detail below.

Kitchen Sink Faucet Parts

Harry Campbell

Before you purchase a new faucet, settle on the sink first. Its size, shape, and features will determine where the faucet should be mounted and how much reach the spout should have.

Also make sure you measure the spout’s height. It should ideally be tall enough to clear your deepest pot, but not so tall that water splashes everywhere when it hits the sink. Make sure there’s enough room behind and beside the faucet to clean around the body and to use the handle comfortably.

Starting at the tip of the faucet, this is the part (typically made of mesh) that breaks up the water flow into multiple small streams to dilute the water with air. Aerators reduce the volume of water flowing while maintaining the feeling of a high-pressure flow, greatly reducing splashing in the sink.

The spout is the part of the faucet that most people notice first; it’s the part that delivers water from the body to the sink and it can be distinctive in its design. A straight spout provides a long reach with a low profile. A gooseneck spout has an elegant, high-arc shape that comes in handy for filling deep pots. The shepherd’s crook design is shaped just as it sounds and offers extra clearance along with a bit of intrigue. And an articulating spout features multiple joints that let you direct the water stream to where it’s needed.

In addition to these style considerations, it’s important to anticipate how you’ll be using your spout in the kitchen. Pull-out versions have a retractable sprayer head that docks on the spout; the pull-out heads, available in several spout styles, are held in place by gravity.

On the other hand, pull-down spouts (generally fitted to the gooseneck design) require a magnetized or locking dock to stay put when not in use. There are also hands-free spouts, which turn on with the help of a foot pedal or motion sensor.

When it comes to the faucet handle, which opens and closes the valve, your choices are one or two. The single handle is easy for people of all ages and abilities to use. It can be mounted on top of the spout, on either side of it, on the front, or beside it, requiring a separate hole. The two-handle faucet has a whole extra handle to worry about, but its timeless charm is an attractive feature for any kitchen.

To control water flow and temperature, today’s faucets use cartridge valves that enclose all the working parts in a single, easy-to-replace unit (meaning no washers to swap out). Some valves are made of plastic or metal, but the best ones house a pair of hard, smooth ceramic discs that rarely leak and aren’t affected by hard‑water deposits. The discs can crack if they snag any debris, so make sure to flush your supply lines before installing the faucet. (Supply lines connect the house’s hot and cold-water pipes.)

Cartridge valves differ by faucet make and model. If you ever need to replace one, order it directly from the manufacturer.

The body is where the hot and cold water are mixed before passing through the spout. In a single-hole design, hot and cold water are combined in a one-piece casting that also houses the valves. This type of body is available in one- or two-handle designs.

With the bridge design, a pipe joining two separate valves blends the hot and cold water before it reaches the spout. This look isn’t very common but is sometimes featured in period designs.

A third option is the widespread body, which requires three holes. It mixes the hot and cold water like a bridge-style faucet, but the pipe is hidden beneath the counter.

What will the faucet be attached to? A deck mount, where the faucet is connected to the sink, is the most common option, and it’s simple to install if there’s enough clearance between the sink and the wall. It requires holes in the countertop or sink.

A second option is to attach the faucet to the wall, which has the benefit of freeing up countertop space and making cleanup easier. But this isn’t a good idea for exterior walls in cold climates, where pipes may freeze.

Common Materials: Brass, Stainless Steel, Plastic, Zinc

Standard options for the faucet material include brass, stainless steel, plastic, and zinc. Brass is the most popular choice. It’s durable and easy to cast, and companies offer a wide variety of models and finishes. Some have sprayer heads made of plastic, so they weigh less and stay cool to the touch; other parts might be made of zinc.

Brass is usually alloyed with lead to make it easier to cast. By law, faucets sold in the U.S. can’t contain more than 8 percent lead, but even that amount can contaminate water sitting in the faucet body for more than a few hours. Running the tap for a few seconds will flush it out. California and Vermont have enacted a stricter standard, a “maximum weighted average” of no more than 0.25 percent. Do your research so you know what you’re buying.

Solid stainless steel is another good choice, but it’s more expensive than brass. (Don’t confuse it with stainless-steel finishes applied over brass.) Some companies apply a clear protective coating to stainless steel to shield it from water spots and fingerprints.

Plastic or zinc faucets are the least durable option. They may be designed to look like brass, but they’re made from a much cheaper material. The best way to tell them apart is to pick them up—plastic and zinc are light, while brass has heft to it.

Finish application

The oldest and most common method of applying a finish to a faucet is electroplating. The faucet is dipped in a bath of dissolved metal that adheres to the surface when a current is applied. It offers a durable, long-lasting finish, but the plating is susceptible to harsh cleansers.

A more expensive technique is to use physical vapor deposition (PVD). The faucet is placed in a vacuum and bombarded with metallic ions that bond to the surface. This results in a very hard, tough finish that doesn’t need a clear coat.

And then there’s powder-coating, where the faucet is sprayed with a dry powder that cures when exposed to heat. Powder-coating leads to an even, thick finish, but it’s not as durable as PVD or electroplating.

Installation tips

New faucets are so easy to install that you barely need tools to do it. If you’re removing an old faucet, use a heat gun or hair dryer to loosen any rusted-on nuts. Remove the nuts with water-pump pliers or a basin wrench.

If you have a stone countertop, skip the plumber’s putty, which contains oil that can stain the stone. Otherwise, use the putty to form a seal between the faucet base and the countertop. Most modern faucets have an O-ring in the base and don’t require a sealant.


Handle kitchen sink

Reluctantly letting go of Annette's chest, I licked my lips, stood up and hoarsely ordered her to move to the chair. Without straightening her shirt. She looked at me briefly and anxiously, but obediently got up and walked over to the chair that I had equipped, no matter how funny it. Sounded, with the maximum convenience for herself: the pouch that allowed my groin to be at the level of the vagina, which was stretched out on the client's chair, moved out silently and imperceptibly.
