Is your home due for an inspirational and luxurious make-over? Replacing the faucets in your kitchen and bathrooms will make a bigger difference to the overall look of the space than you might expect.
Faucets aren't just about function; they are a way to add luxury and timeless elegance to your home. Today, faucets have many high-end features that make your life more convenient. Not to mention they are beautiful too.
However, choosing a luxury kitchen faucet is not always an easy decision. With so many beautiful high-end faucets to choose from, how do you pick the one that's right for your home?
We're going to give you seven tips on how to choose a new luxury faucet to elevate your kitchen.
1. Think About the Features You Need
Consider these functions before you choose the aesthetic so you don't fall in love with a design that won't actually work for your needs.
Along with pull-down and pull-out sprayer head options, you can also get high-end faucets with magnetic docking sprayers.
Once you know the functions and features you need, you can move on to the fun part: choosing the design of your high-end faucets.
2. Choose Between Sink-Mounted and Deck-Mounted Designs
There are two different faucet mounting styles: sink-mounted and deck-mounted. Sink-mounted faucets are great if you want to use your existing sink. However, that limits you on the style you can choose because the faucet has to match the number of mounting holes that are already in your sink.
Deck-mounted kitchen faucets sit directly on your countertop. This is the way to go if you have an under-mounted sink. This option gives you more design freedom, but keep in mind that it will take up space on your countertop.
3. Pick Your Handle Type
Do you want a single handle that rotates to change the water temperature or two handles that blend hot and cold water? It may seem like a simple choice, but it will change a lot when it comes to the look of your faucet and sink.
To take it up a notch for the ultimate modern luxury kitchen, you should also look into touchless kitchen faucets. Nothing says high-end like hands-free, and it makes cooking more convenient too.
4. Selecting the Right Finish
There have never been as many faucet finish options are there are today, so this is an area where you get to have some fun. Popular finish options right now include:
- Polished Chrome
- Brushed Black
- Brushed Nickel
- Brushed Gold
- Polished Brass
- Polished Nickel
- Oil-rubbed Bronze
- Stainless Steel
Black kitchen faucets are currently the top trend in finishes, and it's a timeless choice that will adapt to future home renovations as well.
To keep your design cohesive, try to tie in the faucet finish with other finishes in your kitchen, such as the drawer pulls, cabinet knobs, and light fixtures.
If you're adding accessories or additional fixtures to your sinks, like a side sprayer or soap dispenser, make sure you get them from the same manufacturer since finish colors can vary.
5. Match Your Style
Is your kitchen sleek and modern, or traditional and charming? A faucet that isn't matched to the rest of your style can stick out and throw off the whole look.
If your style is modern, clean lines and 90-degree angles are trendy right now. For something contemporary, choose a more adventurous finish like polished brass. If you love the farmhouse look, tall gooseneck faucets with elegant arches will match your vibe.
6. Add a Pot Filler
A pot filler faucet, also known as a pasta arm, is a must-have for luxury kitchens and avid home cooks. First of all, they make your life way easier since you won't have to lug your pots back and forth from the sink to the stove.
Secondly, they add a touch of elegance and style to your kitchen, and you can coordinate it with your sink faucet to create an even more standout focal point.
7. Invest in High-End Quality
If you're doing a full kitchen renovation, it might be tempting to cut corners and go for a cheaper faucet option. However, you will regret it down the line when you have to deal with maintenance and repairs.
