Different Styles of Kitchen Faucet

Quite honestly, it would take me forever to list all the different styles of kitchen faucet you can buy, there are so many on the market. Manufacturers have recognized that people no longer want this fixture to be something that sits in the background and performs a function when it’s needed.

It doesn’t matter what sense of style you have there are faucets out there that will fit right in with your chosen décor. On my website, I made the decision to break the faucets I’ve reviewed into several different categories in the hope that you’ll find something that suits you.

Of course, within these categories you will find various colors to choose from, if you want contemporary, traditional or just bold and generally “out there” you should hopefully find something to suit your needs. However, I thought it would be a good idea to have a central page explaining what styles I have with a quick link in case you want to find out more.

pull out faucet

Pull Out Faucets
This style of faucet generally comes with one handle so you can adjust the water flow and temperature with one hand (perfect if you’re holding something in the other). They also have an integrated spray head that gives you the freedom to move from sink to countertop. This means if you have large pots that don’t fit in your sink you can fill them with ease away from it.

pull down faucet

Pull Down Faucets
Just like pull out faucets, these are pretty much the same design however, rather than having the ability to move from sink to countertop, you have one fluid movement (downwards) which is great for those of you with big and deep sinks.

commercial faucet

Commercial / Fusion Style
There was once a time when this style of kitchen faucet only suited people who work in a commercial kitchen, however times have changed and that’s why I’ve included these as well. Now (as you will see from the reviews), it’s possible to bring a certain sense of “professionalism” to your kitchen.
Although it doesn’t really matter which part of your kitchen the faucet is going to be installed, I happen to think this style is perfect for making a “decorative” statement if your sink is in the center of the room.

spray faucet

Separate Spray
I realized that many people love the idea of having a spray because it makes life easier in the kitchen, especially if you often rinse dishes or food. However, having an integrated style faucet like those mentioned above doesn’t suit everyone. So, for this reason you will find some reviews on models that have a separate spray.

motion faucet

Motion Detection/Touchless
The models I have included in this section really do show off exactly how far kitchen faucets have come in terms of technology. Not only will you find models that look stunning, but they have some of the most up to date features available. If you really want to wow your friends and family, or are just interested in making life cleaner and easier in your kitchen, you might want to take a look at these.

two handle faucet

Two Handle Faucets
I know! You think I’m heading in the traditional direction here, and that might be true to a certain extent, but only with regards to the fact that I’ve gone back to the good old two handle faucet. In fact, I have customers who prefer this style because they like the option of being able to control hot and cold water from separate handles.

So, those are the different styles of faucet you will find on my website and I hope I’ve at least managed to include something that might be of interest you – have fun browsing!
