Hello everyone, I’m Jake, and right away I’d like to say thanks for visiting my website. On this site, you won’t have to worry about annoying pop-ups or banner ads getting in the way of your browsing.
My one goal is to show you that a kitchen faucet can be much more than a simple utilitarian fixture that fades into the background when you’re not using it. I think that the kitchen is the heart of a home, and you can find a faucet that adds a lot to your décor and still makes your life in the kitchen easier.
But first, I’d like to tell you something about myself (and I’ll keep it short, I promise).
For years now I’ve worked in kitchen design and remodeling, and I decided that now was a good time to create a website for people to come to when they’re looking for the perfect faucet for their kitchen. I’ve written some honest, helpful reviews of a variety of faucet models that I chose to include here, and I’ve been careful to give you a bit of general information about faucets that you probably didn’t know.
So, here we go. I truly hope that this site will help you find the perfect faucet that perfectly fits your kitchen and your style!
In a Rush?
I’m sure that some of you who come here are interested to read what I’ve got to say, but others just need a simple faucet. Maybe you’re even trying to replace a faucet you already have with something similar. Or perhaps you’ve already researched kitchen faucets and know a lot about them, but you still haven’t been able to find exactly what you want yet.
For those of you who are in a hurry, I’ve put together this comparison table to give you all the information you need. If you find something in the table that interests you, just follow the link to the complete review.
Just Getting Started?
If you have just started researching kitchen faucets and want more general information about them, I’ve got some pages for you, too.
You will likely be interested in this buying guide, which has some very useful information about what you need to take into consideration before you take the leap and click on “proceed to checkout.”
Another obvious topic of interest is style. In my many years in the trade, I’ve watched faucet design and technology improve, and nowadays you’ll see all kinds of styles in the marketplace. To get a brief overview, check out this page.
And if you’re interested in finding out more about water usage, installation or what options are available with faucets, take a look at the general information section.
And Now the Reviews
First, these are my top picks for each type:
To add a touch of class (as well as a secret ingredient that your friends will envy), check out my review of the Delta Faucet 9178-AR-DST. This faucet looks great in any kitchen whether your style is traditional or contemporary, and you have five different colors to choose from!
If what you really want is a basic kitchen faucet with the flexibility of the pull-out feature, check out the Kraus KPF-2110. Its design is simple but it’s made to last.
The commercial or industrial type of faucet is showing up in ever more homes in America, and it offers you a lot of bang for your buck. This model (KPF-1602) may be the one for you if you’re looking to make a bold statement in your kitchen.
This is where we really start getting into the higher end models. If what you’re looking for is a faucet that makes your kitchen more hygienic and speeds up your kitchen tasks, take a look at the Moen 7594ESRS Arbor. It is among the most cutting-edge models available.
My way is to always give you as many choices as I can, and I’m aware that not everyone wants a kitchen faucet with integrated spray. For this reason I picked the Delta 4453-SS-DST to be the best faucet with separate sprayer. If you look at the review, you’ll see why I chose this one.
When you’re thinking about what kind of faucet you’d like in your kitchen, maybe you like the traditional models best. The Delta 21966LF-SS Dennison is a really eye-catching take on an old tradition. I think this model combines the best of modern technology and a classic style that would appeal to almost anyone.
But Don’t Just Listen to Me
Naturally, all of the kitchen faucet reviews here come from my own humble opinions, and I’ve tried to make it easy for people to find whatever categories they like. Also, I thought you might find it helpful to have a photo tour of all the faucets I’ve covered here.
I’ve put together several of the best selling faucets I’ve come across in my research, arranged by style or type. Simply choose your favorite style and the link will take you to the right section.You’ll find lots of images to feast your eyes on.
