Did you catch my Instagram Stories yesterday? I shared several different faucet styles, including different functions, colors, and designs. I received a ton of feedback (and over 10k votes) so I decided to compile it in a blog post. If you’re in the market for a new faucet, I hope this post helps you!

Nate and I looked at faucets a few weeks ago and I have my heart set on this one in brushed bronze (a pretty brass color that isn’t even listed). We’re waiting to hear back if it’s available, so fingers crossed that it’s back in stock before we close on our home in a few months.
Before we get into the details, let’s take a look at the faucets we’ve had in our previous kitchens.
In our last home, we had this Brizo bridge faucet in luxe gold. I loved, absolutely LOVED, the color of this faucet. The luxe gold is well worth the splurge. The sprayer worked well and had a strong enough force to help wash food down. The downsides to this faucet – the sprayer was heavy and I mean h-e-a-v-y. I’m not naming names, but the first time it was used, the sprayer was dropped in our sink and chipped the sink a little (looking at you, Nate). Another downside to bridge faucets, we had a lot more excess water on the counter. Both sides of the faucet were constantly wet from dripping hands that were turning the water on and off. Not that big of a deal, but having 3 kids that use our kitchen sink throughout the day, kind of turns it into a big deal.
We had the Delta Trinsic in our first home. We absolutely love this faucet and had no complaints (also great for watering all the plants). I love the modern design; although, it’s a little too modern for the style I’m looking for. This faucet was one of the most recommended faucets from my IG Stories poll. It’s reasonably priced, comes in multiple finishes, and the best part – it’s in stock!
What features are we looking for in a new faucet? I’d love one knob control to help minimize water, and after discussing it with Nate, we decided to go for a touchless faucet. I always thought this was a silly, unnecessary feature, but after having water issues on the counter, I’m really excited for it. I think it will help minimize the water on the counter and help my sanity. AND that was the number one feature that was recommended from the IG poll!
Let’s talk about the polling results! Over 10k votes and here’s what YOU look for in a kitchen faucet:
61% voted black over brass
67% voted 1 knob vs. 2 knobs
88% voted pull down spray and not side sprayer
80% voted arched over square faucet shape
Below are the most popular faucets that were recommended. Delta, Kohler and Brizo were among the top brands, but there was everything in between such as Amazon and Grohe, basically too many to list out.
