The kitchen faucet is the most used appliance in the home, and too often it does not get the attention it deserves during a kitchen renovation. All faucets are not created equally. New advances in technology provide greater functionality and make today’s kitchen faucets not only extremely durable and functionable, but also fashionable. One of the dominate trends in kitchen faucetry is the addition of color. You can add personality to your new kitchens with faucets that come in a vast array of new finishes, ranging from rose gold to matte black and almost everything in between.
The size of the faucet is contingent on the amount of space in the kitchen. We often recommend high arc faucets because they provide additional functionality to sinks that can accommodate stock pots and other large pots and pans. High arc faucets also add visual appeal. But if space is at a premium around the sink, we will often suggest a smaller profile faucet.
Modern and contemporary motifs continue to trend on the upside in today’s homes, and faucet manufacturers have responded with new models that favor soft, minimalist shapes whose focal points are created by finishes instead of details. Polished chrome, stainless steel and satin nickel finishes never go out of style, however, today’s homeowners have been impressed by new color finish options that include matte black, a range of gold tones, copper, bronze and two-toned finishes that can feature matte black and brass or gold. There are stunning combinations that enable you to make a personal design statement and customize your faucet to match and complement other surfaces in your kitchen and home.
Advanced features that make cooking and clean up easier include touch and touchless activation that is perfect to start the water flow when your hands may be caked in dough, pull down and pull out spouts that make it easier to reach all sections of your kitchen sink and magnetic docking stations that keep your spout in the right place all of the time. There’s even foot controls that you can use to start and stop water flow and environmentally efficient models that help to conserve water.
