While it’s a convenience most of us take for granted, it hasn’t even been 200 years since houses had running water. It wasn’t until 1833 that the White House first installed indoor plumbing. And that was just for cold water! Hot water would take until the turn of the 20th century to catch on. These days plumbing seems common and ordinary, but the assortment of fixtures most certainly is not.

WEWE Single Handle High Arc Brushed Nickel Pull Out Kitchen Faucet

Understated design

All the hoses are pre-installed so will take you only a few minutes to add this product to your classic, eclectic, or modern kitchen. Amazon

We appreciate how easy this faucet is to install. Designed to work with one faucet hole or three, this faucet is great in either case as it comes with a special piece to cover the other holes as needed. The delicately styled tulip faucet has three water modes – stream, spray and pause – so you can fill the watering can, then pause the water flow and remove the can without getting splashed. Pull out the retractable sprayer to easily rinse veggies from the garden.

Delta Faucet Essa Brushed Nickel Kitchen Faucet

All you need in one box

Everything comes pre-assembled, so installing this faucet is something you can do yourself. Amazon

This faucet has a magnetic locking feature, so when you’re done using the sprayer it snaps back into place. Not only is your faucet always ready to go, but this keeps the spraying hose from getting slack. At almost 16 inches tall, this faucet adds a big personality to your sink, elevating your kitchen. We love the Diamond Seal Technology that keeps leaks at bay twice as long as industry standard faucets. The spray assembly is crafted with soft grey rubber so you can clean it with just a soft rag, no need for cleansers or chemicals.

One of the interior design rules is that every room needs a little black accent. This matte black faucet could be just what you need to add a sophisticated touch to your kitchen. This faucet has something amazing called Power Boost. It’s a button on the detachable spray head and it works on both stream and spray settings. On the stream setting, it makes filling pots and pitchers 50 percent faster. On the spray setting, it gives an extra cleaning punch when you have dinner dishes to clean.

This faucet combines the touch assist tech with three flow settings – stream, spray, and pause – as only Moen can. The pause button makes life easier since you don’t need to worry about backsplash from the dishes. No more wet aprons. It’s also got the Power Boost button to fill containers quickly.
