For the Love of Faucets

We can laugh now about it, but when my wife Maria and I got down to choosing a new kitchen faucet to replace our broken one, we went to hell and back trying to decide which would be the best for our kitchen. Maria wanted something that would be beautiful and complement what we already had in our home. I did too, of course, but I also had to really worry about the budget we had and I figured there had to be some way to combine the best of both worlds and narrow down the list to ultimately find the best faucet on the market. We did finally make a short list of kitchen faucets, and now I can go over the ones we looked at and what we chose in the end. Hopefully, my suggestions will help you and your family find the best faucet for your kitchen and save you a bit of time and money in the process.

Our primary objective is to let people know that kitchen faucets are more than fixtures in the kitchen. As one of the most used areas of your home, your kitchen is basically a hub within a hub and it should be treated as such. Maria wanted something that was welcoming and inviting and I can understand that. However, since I was in charge of the budget, I had to make a compromise that we could both live with. And more importantly, it had to be something that we could stand for years to come because how often does one change out kitchen faucets anyway?

The next question was whether or not we wanted a pull-out faucet or a pull-down version. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, and it can truly be confusing to navigate the waters of which one is the best for your own kitchen. Based on what we saw and researched, we made a quick list and narrowed it down to the following kitchen faucets:

Delta Faucet 9178

Probably one of the classiest versions we saw while we were researching was the Delta Faucet 9178, which offered a modern touch and was available in five colors. So no matter what your kitchen looked like, this model had a hue that would mesh well with what you already had in your home.

Kraus KPF-2110

This pull-out model was simple in design, but it was clear that it had been manufactured for durability and to be long-lasting. It also offered the flexibility of a true pull-out faucet, and was available at an attractive price that meant we had to at least consider it in the end.

Kraus KPF-1602

From what we gathered, industrial faucets are becoming one of the newest trends in American homes and the KPF-1602 is probably the best of the bunch and packs a huge visual wallop. We were on a budget and this one was affordable, so that also made it a real consideration that had to be added to our final list of faucets to consider.

I will add that this is ultimately our list and you can do whatever you want, but I can honestly say that we really did our homework and these suggestions are more than likely to end up on your list as well, one way or another. You always have the option to search out the biggest brands and then look at their images and descriptions to make a decision. But me and my wife decided to make our list and then go and see them directly because there is always more information to be had once you are up close with the object.

Another aspect we had to consider was installation, which was another headache we were not looking forward to. Before you decide on a brand, you should also consider who will be providing the installation. If you are doing it yourself, ensure that you have the tools and the know-how to get the job done properly. There’s nothing more upsetting than buying new appliances and then finding out they have been installed incorrectly.

After looking at all the pros and cons, Maria and I decided to splurge a bit and get the Delta model. Even at that price, it was still worth the investment and I knew we would have the faucet for years to come. So, not only did we find a great faucet that will add value to our home, we both agreed on the final product, which always makes things easier to digest!
