When you stray from Moen and Delta you enter a wilderness of proprietary parts that can be hard to find and expensive as well as more difficult to repair. Picture your kitchen sink faucet out of commission while you wait for a part made in Germany. It happens and it happens much too often. European faucets and some manufactures such as Kohler and American Standard may have great faucet styles but finding a needed part can be tough. You probably will not find those parts hanging on the walls of most suppliers because they have limited supply and distribution. A good question to ask is, "Does this faucet have parts commonly available at most suppliers?" Be sure to take the time to confirm that your salesperson has given you correct information: get a second opinion.
The urge to buy the latest faucet finishes can be strong but you need to know the risks. I have seen finishes come and go. Have you ever heard of Antique Brass or Brushed Brass? Both of those finishes have come and gone. It is best to stick to polished chrome or polished brass. Those have been standards since I started plumbing. If you choose burnished brass, copper or another special finish, beware. In five years you may need to replace it and the finish may be unavailable. Will polish brass look good in a room with copper faucets?
