Question Mysterious Water Pressure Drop in Kitchen Only

Well, decided to change out a faucet in one of the bathrooms of my house. So after shutting off the water and completing the job and turning the water back on, I noticed that only the kitchens faucet has low water pressure. Everywhere else in the house seems to be just fine. The pressure is quite low too, like just below drizzling. What could be the possible cause of this low pressure only in the kitchen?

Pressure

Check the aerator on the end of the spout. (the little screen that makes the water come out smoother.) Just unscrew it counter clockwise and clean it out. If thats not the problem post back for more indepth details.
