Kitchen sinks see more action than just about any other home appliance. From cooking tasks and providing drinking water to hand washing and cleaning up, the sink is a hub of kitchen activity. Remodelers should take care to select a faucet that matches the kitchen's aesthetic while standing up to daily cooking and cleaning. To help, here are our five favorite kitchen faucets that combine design and practicality:
1. Grohe Blue Chilled & Sparkling Starter Kit - Best for bubbles
Small pleasures can revolutionize the daily grind. This faucet gives kitchens a luxurious upgrade with chilled, filtered sparking water straight from the tap. Three settings (still, medium, and full sparkling) ensure the perfect refreshment for any thirst, and separate internal streams for filtered and non-filtered water efficiently manage all types of kitchen tasks.
2. Elkay Avado Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet - Standout design
This model's sleek aesthetic makes it a perfect choice for modern kitchen arrangements. The minimalist single-handle design hides a convenient pull-down sprayer and a 360° swing spout that allow for easy cleanup. Not sure if modern style suits your taste?

3. Briso Artesso® Single Handle Articulating Kitchen Faucet with SmartTouch® Technology - Advanced technology

4. Blanco Alta Compact™ Pull-Out Dual 1.8 Silgranit - Best compact faucet
Made for those who prefer subtlety to sky-high culinary faucets, this design exists in a range of neutral colors that blend discreetly into your kitchen's aesthetic. Shorter faucets also work well with inward opening windows and other potential obstructions. And, since functionality is still key, this faucet features a 120° swivel and a water-reducing flow rate.
5. Aquabrass Downton Dual stream mode kitchen faucet with side spray - Vintage glamor
This nostalic design radiates shabby chic elegance, providing all of the charm of an old-fashioned kitchen without sacrificing on practicality. Despite its vintage exterior, this faucet remains a top functional choice with two stream modes (spray and aerated) and 360° spout rotation.
