Kitchen Faucets Keep Getting Smarter

Today’s kitchen faucets are smarter than ever, providing everything from touch on/off operation and color-changing properties based on water temperature to voice-control capabilities and app-controlled programming for volume of water, flow rates, temperature and more.

But while faucets keep getting smarter, style trends remain clean and streamlined, while new finishes and split finishes create myriad opportunities for personalization. The wellness trend is also evident, as seen by the growing interest in pure water that can be accessed directly from the faucet.

Below are some of the hottest trends in kitchen faucets right now.

–Contemporary styling continues to trend, with clean lines still in high demand, while consumers are using faucet materials and finishes to make a powerful statement.

–Kitchen faucets are getting smarter; today’s faucets can not only turn on and off with a wave or a voice command, but they can change color based on water temperature, or be programmed to fill a cup, pot or even the dog’s water bowl to preset levels from an app on the user’s phone.

–Split finishes remain popular, adding style and drama, while matte black and brushed gold continue to trend; some specialty finishes like graphite, black stainless and rose gold, are also making inroads. Bronze shades are drawing interest, while polished brass is also winning over some homeowners, but in more natural, softer tones than the shiny versions of old, to mesh with the trend toward warmer, more nature-inspired spaces.

–Geometry provides inspiration for some of the latest faucets, with handles and spouts sporting interesting shapes.

–Since easy clean up remains a high priority, pull-down, semi-professional and pull-out models are always top picks, while interest in bridge faucets and industrial-style faucets is also growing.

–The wellness trend is also inspiring faucets that offer pure water in various forms – chilled, hot and even sparkling varieties.
