Buying a faucet gives you an opportunity to add a shiny new accessory to your kitchen sink. It’s a small change that can go a long way in transforming the look of your space, especially if the faucet draws the eye’s attention and is bold enough to be a centerpiece. There are different ways a faucet can make an impact too, including its size, design, finish, or a combination of details that give it pizazz. Here’s our lineup of the best faucets to do the job, along with tips on what to look for while you shop.
What to Consider
Unless you’re doing a complete renovation, plumbing and an existing sink will determine the type of faucet you can choose. Deck-mounted faucets have one to four holes, so two or more requires measuring the distance between each piece. In general, widespread faucets are six inches or more, and anything less is considered a centerset. There are also wall-mounted faucets to install above a sink or range top. Beyond that, you’re looking at specific styles or features, like a pull-out or pull-down model, or smart faucets that are touchless and have voice control. You may want your kitchen appliances and faucet to match or at least compliment each other, and there are a slew of finishes available, some with the added benefit of being fingerprint-resistant.
How We Chose
Our selection includes the most common faucet types, and we combed through customer reviews to find the best-looking, highest-quality faucets from major brands with ratings of four stars or more. We featured contemporary, modern and traditional models across multiple price points and included popular features and styles.

Delta Collins Kitchen Faucet
This classic single-handle faucet is a smart bet if you’re looking for something that looks nice and is basic and affordable. Plus, at the time of this writing, it’s priced at under $100.
It’s from Delta, a trusted name in faucets (fun fact: the Indiana-based company has been around since 1954), with a one-hole deck mount, a swivel spout that has a high enough arc for easily filling pots and pans. Polished chrome finish always looks sharp; additional finishes include brushed stainless and white.
The Basic Pull-Down
Delta Leland Kitchen Faucet
For a step up, this Delta faucet has a handy pull-down sprayer — and if you’re upgrading from a standard model like the one above, it’ll fast become a feature that you won’t want to live without. The hose makes it easier to wash dishes and fill cookware with less splatter and it’s a great tool for cleaning out the sink.
There’s a magnetic dock to prevent the sprayer from drooping over time, plus it’s finished to prevent water droplets and fingerprints from showing. It’s also available in stainless, polished chrome, and bronze.
The Smart Pull-Down
Moen Touchless Voice Control Kitchen Faucet
This faucet takes a basic pull-down to the next level. Wave your hand past a sensor on top of the spout to turn it on, or use voice control and tell Alexa or Google Assistant to perform tasks like “fill the pot with three cups of water.”
Presets for measurement and temperature are customizable through the app. The single-handle faucet is deck-mounted and is available in three additional finishes: matte black, brushed chrome, and oil-rubbed bronze.
Delta Trinsic Kitchen Faucet
Sleek design makes this pull-out faucet an excellent choice for a modern kitchen. The spout swivels, and two buttons on the underside allow you toggle back and forth between a single stream and spray. Also, the weight inside the nylon-braided hose isn’t fixed, which gives you more range. The faucet is on the taller side at just over 11 inches high, and comes in stainless, black stainless, and matte back in addition to polished chrome.
Kingston Brass Magellan Kitchen Faucet
This attractive, vintage-style faucet is space-saver, plus not having a deck-mount makes it easier to wipe up water and clean around the sink. It features cross handles, each with a bright-white center to show off the elegant script on its hot and cold knobs.
Because the low-arc spout is wall-mounted, there’s plenty of space to fill tall pots. The faucet gets rave reviews, with an average 4.8 stars from more than 175 customers, and it’s available in five other finishes in addition to the oil-rubbed bronze that’s shown.
Kraus Bolden Kitchen Faucet
Commercial-style faucets have a modern farmhouse look, but the exposed hardware elevates the overall design so it works well in settings ranging from contemporary to industrial. This one is positively swoonworthy and customers agree, with more than 4,700 reviewers giving the faucet an average 4.8 stars.
It’s 18 inches high and features a swivel spout and pull-down spray head, plus there’s the option to add a soap pump. The faucet also has a spot-resistant finish and comes in nine other finishes, including polished chrome and a striking matte black.
Delta Contemporary Kitchen Faucet
A pot-filler is a cleverly designed faucet that can be placed over a sink or range top. They often have knobs at the wall and spout, plus there’s a swing joint that allows it to be pushed back flush with the wall and out of the way. This model from Delta would look sharp in any kitchen and it extends up to an impressive 2 feet, which is especially convenient if you have a wide double sink. It gets high marks from customers, with an average 4.8 stars from more than 400 reviewers and it comes in five other finishes in addition to polished chrome.
Kingston Brass Heritage Kitchen Faucet
This handsome faucet can transform a ho-hum contemporary kitchen into an elegant space. It has enough presence to make a statement, and draws the eye to become the focal point of the room. The bridge balances out the high spout to keep proportions in check, and the traditional handles complete the look.
It’s available in multiple finishes, such as brushed nickel and a lovely vintage brass, plus the side spray is included. Nearly 900 customers give the faucet an average 4.7 stars.
The Sprayer-Soap-Dispenser Combo
Alcott Hill Helen Kitchen Faucet
If you have a wide or double-width sink with four holes, this faucet style is your best bet. It has a high goose-neck spout that swivels, with a single handle set at its side, plus a soap dispenser and pull-out sprayer. Each piece has a decorative curve to add visual interest and the rich, oil-rubbed bronze finish features burnished gold details that catch the light for a hint of shine. The deck-mounted faucet is also available in satin satin nickel.
