While the kitchen is considered the heart of the home, the water station is right at the center of that heart. Sink and faucet styles have evolved to meet every functional and aesthetic purpose that can be imagined, including changeable sink fronts and low-bowl divides, and color-infused faucets that respond to a range of operations.
In fact, today’s kitchen faucets showcase a range of finishes and functions that take food prep and cleanup to a new level. Today we are going to share top 6 trends on kitchen faucets.
- The variety of finishes, shapes and functions allow for personalization and customization to go with any design styles.
Coordinating Kitchen Faucets
Karran now offers a line of kitchen faucets to complement its extensive kitchen sink range. The initial product launch includes six kitchen sink faucets, available in a range of finishes such as stainless steel, chrome, matte black and brushed gold. Shown here is the Scottsdale in the Gunmetal Grey finish.
2. Powder-coated colors are being applied to faucets to deliver a match for the latest colorful sinks.
BLANCO has relaunched its Linus kitchen faucet collection with new full-color finishes. The updated faucet has been re-engineered to clean using less water, boasting a water-efficient 1.5 gpm flow rate. The sleek low-profile style, fully insulated pull-out handspray and angular design of the Linus is in keeping with modern design principles. The faucet’s new colors match all nine Silgranit sink colors, and provide further options with two metal finishes – Chrome and PVD Steel. In addition to the Linus changing from dual finish to full color refresh, BLANCO is adding two brand new hues across its entire faucet offering: Coal Black, a matte black accent, and Concrete Gray, a soft shade of dove gray.
3. Home-connect systems allow homeowners to speak to their faucets, turning them on and off through voice commands and even getting exact measurements or hot/cold water via request.
Delta VoiceIQ Technology
Delta VoiceIQ Technology pairs with connected home devices to provide exactly the amount of water needed, with features like metered dispensing and custom container commands. With a VoiceIQ Faucet from Delta Faucet, homeowners can ask the faucet to dispense one cup, six ounces, a gallon or just about any other amount they could need. Custom container commands make everyday tasks easier, like filling a coffee pot or dog bowl, while features like water warm-up and voice-activated on/off lend a hand when theirs are full. A retrofittable VoiceIQ Module for Delta Touch2O Faucets manufactured after January 2018 provides a full breadth of styles and finishes to choose from. With VoiceIQ Technology, users can also tell a smart home device to wash hand or activate handwash mode, and the faucet will automatically turn the water on and off per CDC handwashing guidelines.

The U by Moen Smart Faucet

Users can personalize presets, and a new wash hands command helps ensure proper handwashing
4. Mixed finishes are making major statements in the kitchen, with major focus being paid to matte black in combination with metals such as brushed gold and copper.
Part of Isenberg’s Klassiker Collection, the Caso – K.1200 kitchen faucet offers dual function pull-out sprayer and is manufactured using marine grade stainless steel for indoor or outdoor use.

6. Water filtration, carbonation and hot/cold water dispensing are all gaining in popularity, and the latest faucets deliver these options from a single tap.
Kraus USA has developed two new kitchen faucet models aimed at helping customers create a healthier living environment by combining performance with water filtration capability. The latest addition to the Kraus Healthy Home Initiative, these faucets take commercial-style Kraus models and enhance them with the addition of an integrated drinking water filter tap.
