The kitchen faucet is one of the most undervalued components of a kitchen. Though granite countertops and gas ranges get all the limelight, no dinner would be possible without a faucet. How else would you rinse the sandy soil off leeks? Or wash your hands?
If a general contractor is remodeling your kitchen, give your new faucet some thought. It needs to be stylish but also easy to use, leak-proof, and efficient. To help you find “the one,” we’ve rounded up the five best kitchen faucet brands of 2022.
From these remodels, we’ve learned which faucets exceed expectations and which faucets flop. The spigots that go above and beyond are:
Do you want to give your kitchen a modern facelift without breaking the bank? If so, consider the Pfister LG534-LPMB Arkitek Kitchen Faucet. At just $199.51 from Amazon.com, this faucet offers the features of a deluxe fixture without the lofty price tag.
This model is perfect for kitchens with a modern or mid-century aesthetic. It comes in three colors: matte black, polished chrome, and stainless steel.
This faucet is the Cadillac of all kitchen faucets. Inspired by the faucets in commercial kitchens, the Kohler K-24982-BL Purist® Kitchen Faucet ($664.39 from Amazon.com) offers a high-arc spout so you can fill up big stock pots and rondeaus with ease.
Other luxury features include:
Plus, this semi-professional faucet comes in five different finishings to complement your kitchen aesthetic: matte black, polished chrome, vibrant polished nickel, vibrant stainless, and vibrant brushed moderne brass.
Do you have a deep farmhouse sink? If so, the American Standard 4279300.075 Delancey® Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet is perfect for you. At $388.05 from Amazon.com, this stylish mid-range option adds a modern flair to a country chic kitchen.
This faucet offers:
This faucet comes in four colors: legacy bronze, polished chrome, polished nickel PVD, and stainless steel. American Standard also offers a prep version of the Delancey® Pull-Down that’s perfect for kitchen island sinks.
Delta Faucet offers a bevy of kitchen faucet options that are stylish, functional, and affordable. More specifically, this brand offers superior pull-out faucets – faucets with retractable spray heads.
Average Cost: $50 to $700
The average kitchen remodel costs between $12,000 and $35,000. To protect your investment, steer clear of faucets made for retail stores only. An example would be a faucet produced by The Home Depot brand.
Though these kitchen fixtures are cheaper than those manufactured by Delta, American Standard, and other well-known brands, they’re typically discontinued after two years of production. Because of this limited window, it can be hard to find compatible parts when a lever or nozzle breaks five years from now.
Replacing that dull and dysfunctional kitchen faucet with a sleek and modern spigot can do wonders for your kitchen. But a new faucet can only do so much. If your kitchen is stuck in the 1980s, you might benefit from a more extensive interior remodel.
