I've been looking at more than my share of faucets this week and discovered there are a whole lot of choices out there. I looked at all kinds of styles like contemporary, minimalist and detailed kitchen faucets before finding the new ornate kitchen faucets that grabbed my attention.
I've reached the conclusion that faucet manufacturers need to pay more attention to the names they give their products. For example, I love this Franke Manor House MH270 Double Lever Gooseneck Bridge Faucet. But, seriously what kind of name is that? It doesn't even begin to describe this beautiful faucet with its unique shape and polished nickel finish. However, in spite of its name, I think this is one great kitchen faucet.
Modern kitchen designs are getting sleeker and more luxurious all the time. Some kitchen designers, like Spain-based Auro, are going as far as adding sparkling gems to their creations. Swavorski crystal-encrusted cabinet and drawer pulls make a dazzling culinary experience for chef and diner alike in the Auro Crystal25 Kitchen, created in celebration of their 25th anniversary.
Such overt luxury as the Crystal25 kitchen calls for minimalist kitchen faucets. The more simple kitchen faucets, such as the Hansacuisine Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet in stainless steel, won’t try to compete with the vibrant accent stones and streamlined look of the cabinets and counters. So if you've gone modern with your kitchen decor consider a minimalist faucet for a sleek look. What do you think of this luxurious kitchen?
You may not think about it often, but your kitchen faucet is a big part of your everyday life; especially if you like to cook or have a big family. Not only do you need a stylish faucet that matches your décor, you’ll want to choose one based on what activities you’ll be performing with it and what type of cookware you’ll be using. The right faucet should look great and provide easy access and use.
Types of kitchen faucets are seemingly endless and there are many things consider. Choose based on the following criteria:
Style and finish which matches your sink and décor
Operation and technology including valves

Advice from your designer or contractor
