If you’re looking to remodel your kitchen or simply need to replace your faucet, you know that the options are endless. Construction, design, finish, shape, function, spray or no spray—and what about durability? Because kitchen faucets get so much use, it’s important to really look at what you need to make a great choice. Don’t worry, though. We have you covered!

One of our staffers has this model and raves about how easy it is to use with just one finger, the flexible hose and the just-right water pressure.

Before purchasing a kitchen faucet, it’s important to establish what aesthetic you’re looking for. What kind of look will fit your kitchen’s design, and what finish do you prefer? For example: if you have brushed stainless steel appliances, consider a faucet with the same finish. If you have brass or iron accents, you might want to opt for a faucet in the same tones.

Strong spraying power that releases any stubborn junk on dishes without a bunch of scrubbing.

Most faucets have a traditional stream and sprayer combo, typically with the press of a button or flick of a switch located on the back of the faucet head. When looking for a new faucet, be sure to consider how simple it is to single-handedly change the water flow settings.

This is functional, resists spotting and very budget-friendly.

A brushed nickel finish will keep your sink looking newer for longer by minimizing the appearance of fingerprints and water spots. It’s also a budget-friendly alternative to stainless steel—but won’t look out of place with steel appliances.
