You should also be sure to choose a brushed steel tap kitchen with a lifetime warranty. Ask the showroom representative about warranty issues, as some inexpensive brands have a lifetime warranty but go out of business after a few years, making it ineffective. Fortunately, if you do happen to buy a cheap faucet, you can usually find replacement cartridges at the same time. This will get you through the first repair. If you are not sure about this, you can even get a new faucet from a home center.
