People are taking notice of kitchen faucets. The faucet isn’t just the item that water streams out of anymore; it is now a popular design detail due to a number of design styles and finishes. There are professional-styled faucets, touch or touchless faucets, and pull-down and pull-out faucets to consider for your kitchen. However, it doesn’t stop there. There are tons of fun faucet finishes to choose from. In no particular order, let’s take a closer look at the top five finishes.

#1. Matte Black 

For quite some time now, matte black has been a consumer’s favored finish. There isn’t a kitchen design style or color palette that a matte black faucet can’t rock. This finish is sure to create a bold and contrasting statement to any kitchen remodel. 

#2. Brushed Gold/Champagne 

A faucet finish that is making its way back to popularity is gold (nowadays better known as brushed gold or champagne). This finish is finding its way in a majority of kitchen remodels. Brushed gold or champagne has the power to add warmth and elegance to any kitchen design. 

#3. Two-Tone 

If you are having trouble deciding between all the different faucet finishes, we have the answer for you ~ two-tone faucets! Mixing metals in one space is extremely popular and becoming a designers favorite detail. Complete your trendy kitchen design by incorporating a matte black and brushed gold faucet, or any two finish faucet combo.

#4. Stainless Steel & Brushed Nickel 

A timeless faucet finish is stainless steel or brushed nickel. These two faucet finishes, like matte black, go with any design style. However, stainless steel or brushed nickel faucets are easier to clean and maintain those pesky water spots and finger marks. Not interested in keeping up with the trends, a stainless steel or brushed nickel faucet finish is right for you and your kitchen.

#5. Polished Chrome 

Let’s get real for a second, who doesn’t love a polished chrome kitchen faucet. Even if it’s not as popular as a few other faucet finishes, a metallic kitchen faucet looks amazing in any contemporary or modern kitchen design. A polished chrome faucet radiates those urban kitchen feels!
