Getting The Job Done Right
Faucets are the “cheery on the top” in every kitchen, and when buying one, it is important to consider not only the design but also its functionality and quality.
Since I am using this part of the kitchen on daily bases (even though I have a dishwasher), I found functionality extremely important, but also I like to match every single little detail in my home. Elegant and modern design is something I always looking for. Choosing a perfect faucet for your kitchen should be an easy thing to do. However, I had a bit of a struggle since I didn’t have a clue where to start.
I only knew the color I was looking for, which will match the design of the kitchen ordered for my new apartment. I had no idea how complicated this process would be. So I learned the hard way. Therefore, I would like to save you some time, and hopefully, this article will help you to find the perfect faucet for your kitchen. Just read carefully the pros and cons before you make any decision.
Whether you want to change the old faucet and breath in the fresh air into your current kitchen, or buy the faucet for a brand new one, you have plenty of choices today. I was surprised at how cheap I was able to buy the Moen Arbor kitchen faucet from the listing on Amazon. It is definitely the best you can get but let’s not underassessment the other options as well. I compared the used materials, integrated technologies, design, and other features of many different manufacturers and sellers, and I came up with the following list of the exceptional kitchen faucets. Here are the 10 most modern and best quality kitchen faucets I found on the market.
*List recently updated for 2020
Moen Arbor faucet has absolutely everything you are looking for from the kitchen faucet. Simple yet very modern designs make this kitchen device stands out among a wide range of different facets.
Integrated spot and fingerprints resistant technology, guarantee one less thing to clean in your kitchen. Made of high-quality metal, Moen Arbor Faucet is very light in weight and easy to install. Build-in sensor helps you to switch on and off the water. You can choose among front integrated sensor, or side integrated.
The best thing about this kitchen faucet is a great combination of attractive design, high-quality materials, and functionality. No matter the type of the kitchen, this faucet will match with it. You can choose among four colors: Chrome, Mate Black, Oil-Rubbed Bronze, and Spot Resist Stainless. The last one if my favorite. A huge advantage of the Moen faucet is also a pull-down reflex system. This feature gives more flexibility to the 68-inch-long hose.
I don’t mind paying more to get the best product, but in that case, I also expect to have a fully covered warranty. Moen Arbor faucet has a limited lifetime warranty which actually means that the seller will take responsibility for most of the potential problems regarding the faucet, but not all of them. This is nothing unusual since most of the lifetime warranties have the same conditions.
• Integrated power boost system gives the sprayer 50% more power
• Reflex system pulls back the hose automatically after the use
• The sensor-equipped faucet is excellent for washing your hands.
This high neck kitchen faucet comes with a multifunctional sprayer which is very easy to control. Integrated boost system will give you a higher flow for washing the dishes or other kitchen tools.
Another sprayer options give you a wider water stream and turn the Simplice faucet into the super cleaner. Magnetic docking will safely keep the sprayer in its place, and you just have to pull down the hose when needed.
Since I prefer the faucets with a higher neck and flexible hose, I found Simplice Faucet as one of the top products you can get. When I use the kitchen faucet, I hate when water spills out of the kitchen sink. This is why Simplice faucet impressed me the most. The flexible hose is very easy to control and comfortable to use. I don’t like washing the dishes on my own, but this great feature makes mentioned activity less painful.
If you are not a fan of the one-handle kitchen faucets, well there is not much to do about it. This faucet comes only in one option, and there is no separate controller for cold and hot water. I personally prefer one-handle faucets for the kitchen so this one suits me right. The handle is easy to control so you will not have the problem in setting the right temperature of the water.
• You can choose among three colors: Vibrant Stainless, Matte Black, or Polished Chrome
• The sprayer has integrated master-clean spray-face, build up for super cleaning
• Integrated hose rotates up to 360 degrees
• Easy to control even with soapy and wet hands.
Delta Faucet Leland very much looks like the Moen Arbor faucet and has almost the same features and characteristics. It basically suits any kitchen.
That’s because since the modern design of this faucet can be bought in 4 different colors (Chrome, Venetian Bronze, Spotshield Stainless, and Arctic Stainless), and two styles (standard or touch20). This faucet is equipped with soft rubber spray holes, and two functions, spray or stream.
Low-quality materials and unknown sellers are something I would definitely try to skip when buying the kitchen faucet. The reason is the bad experience I had in the past since some faucets started leaking just a few months after the purchase. Delta Faucet Leland has diamond seal technology that guarantees no leaks during the whole lifetime of this faucet. The installation itself is simple, you just have to follow well-explained guidelines in the manual that comes with the faucet.
The transition between cold and hot water is not as precise as I would like it to be. Personally, this doesn’t represent the huge problem for me and my family, although I would be happier if the switching is easier to control. You might have to struggle at the beginning until you figure out the exact point of the cold to hot and reverse transition.
• The faucet is made of Brass
• Equipped with a magnetic sprayer docking
• Integrated ShieldSpray technology turns the regular water stream into the powerful one (necessary for cleaning heavier stains)
This faucet comes with a great price, and it is a high-quality product while also affordable to everyone. WEWE one-handle kitchen faucet takes approximately 30 min to install, and it comes with all the necessary parts and instructions.

I was pleased with its modern design from the first moment, and easily maintain requirements. Anti-corrosion and rust cover makes this faucet safe to use for its whole lifetime. The best thing is that you will not need to call the plumber, because the installation is super quick and easy. You will find the instructions packed with the faucet, just make sure to follow them and set up the WEWE kitchen faucet correctly to avoid any potential leaking and problems.
The out layer should be better since the faucet might lose its shine after some time. Don’t panic, this won’t happen immediately, and it doesn’t affect the functional features of the faucet, but for those of you obsessed with details (like myself), this can be irritating. The faucet will serve you for years if you take proper care of it, and maintain regularly.

If you want your kitchen to look like the real culinary place, Bolden Commercial kitchen faucet is exactly what you are looking for. With retractable sprayer and flexible hose, you will be able to rich every angle of your sink.
Even though this faucet is made of extremely high-quality materials, and there is no space left for any potential leaks, what impressed me the most is the design. I would say that this faucet is the most extravagant and modern of all the others on the list, and it comes in few colors such as Matte Black, Chrome, Stainless Steel, or combinations like Matte Black/ Stainless Steel, and Chrome/ Stainless Steel.
The sprayer nozzle is made of silicon. I would like this faucet better if there were used other stronger materials since this faucet has a bit higher price. Although the silicon used is great in quality, and much better than plastic ones, for example, I prefer better to pay more and get more of the product.

• Absolutely lead-free product and safe to use

Delta Windemere kitchen faucet is especially recommended for 2-handle faucet lovers. So if you are looking for a standard but still modern and multifunctional faucet, this one would be the best choice.
A great advantage of this faucet comparing to other 2-handle ones is the side sprayer that comes with it. Delta Windemere is a traditional looking faucet with the ability to reach every corner of the kitchen sink, without spraying the water all over the side.
High arch is a great benefit of this faucet, and it makes everything much easier. My parents are more into the old-school and retro design, and they were looking for a modern faucet with the same features. I bought this faucet for them, and I managed to install it without anyone’s help. The biggest problem although was to take out the old one.
The Delta Windemere faucet is not the shining star among Delta’s products, to be honest. You will have to be a bit more careful and gentle with this one if you want it to last longer. If you are not sure about the process of installation, don’t do it on your own. In case of any type of faucet, if the installation is not done correctly, it might cause the leaking soon after, and the product itself will not last too long.

The body material used for manufacturing is brass, and the valve is made of ceramic. The handle is made of stainless steel. Comes with a 2-nozzle sprayer, very easy to control and store back after the use.
I was impressed with the price of this product since these kinds of faucets are much more expensive. High arch and multifunctional retractable hose, allows you to easily clean anything in and around the sink.
Always be careful with retractable sprayers, since they can break if you pull them too hard. Modern faucets are usually made of high-quality materials that won’t allow this to happen. However, this feature can give you a headache in case the hose snap. Therefore, make sure to pay attention to materials those parts are made of.

• Comparing to the other similar faucets, VCCUCINE kitchen faucet comes for a much lower price than the other ones

Brantford Pulldown faucet represents the innovative solution for those of you who would prefer the simple look and design. The faucet hose is long enough to reach any corner even of the bigger kitchen sink’s.
Boost sprayer gives you the double water stream power, comparing to the standard kitchen faucets. This helps in case you have a lot of messy dishes to wash, and no dishwasher. The integrated reflex system pulls back the hose after the use. Duralock based installation system is simple, and there is no need to call professional plumbers. I preferred the Oil-Rubbed Bronze color, but you can also choose Spot Resist Stainless or Chrome.
The built-in sensor can be too sensitive for someone’s taste, which can cause the water to switch on and off anytime you move your hand too close. This basically means that you don’t have to go over the sensor to trigger it and that the several inches’ distance can be more than enough to trigger it as well.

I was impressed with the quality of the product, and a bit surprised to be honest since I didn’t expect too much for this amount of money.
The button on the sprayer is sensitive, and you have to be very careful while moving it from one to another position. If you don’t want to stay with only one option on your sprayer, just pay more attention while doing this, and this faucet will serve you for years.

The overall design and quality of the Delta Trinsic Kitchen Faucet impressed me the most.

Most of the Delta’s faucets have integrated Diamond Seal technology, which will last for life. I don’t want to look for another kitchen faucet in a couple of months, and this is why I would go for this one.
In case you decide to choose the Chrome color, you might spend more time removing the fingerprints and stains from the faucet, comparing to the other colors. This is only because the Chrome color is shinier than the other ones.
