Consumer trends are constantly changing, and choosing the right faucet style for your residential project is crucial when it comes to making homeowners happy. Kitchens are the epicenter of design and functionality — and the perfect residential kitchen faucet needs to be powerful, durable, and compliment the overall architectural aesthetics of the room.

Here are the top five faucet trends for the modern kitchen:

1) The Modern Bar Prep Pull-Down

This slim, single-handle pull-down is the perfect faucet for a kitchen’s bar-prep station. The sleek, compact design is a major space-saver, while its seamless pull-down functionality makes both prep and cleanup a breeze.

2) The Stylish and Smart Pre-Rinse

When it comes to cleanup in your kitchen’s main sink, you want a faucet that can get the job done — without sacrificing style. The pull-down head of this Motegi faucet from Pioneer has 2 spray patterns, a 360 degree swivel, and a generous nine-inch reach, making cleanup even more convenient, while the simple, flowing design and dramatic geometry of the Motegi collection brings a sense of sophistication and sculptural art to the room.

3) Going Commercial

Thanks to their ability to increase functionality and productivity, incorporating commercial-grade faucets and appliances into the residential kitchen is becoming a popular trend among homeowners. Pot-fillers allow you to maximize prep space and save time while cooking — and, with a rustic design and gorgeous, oil-rubbed bronze finish, the wall mount pot filler from the Americana collection effortlessly incorporates this useful, commercial appliance into any residential space.

4) Clean Lines

A solid linear silhouette gives the modern kitchen a clean, minimalist look, instantly upgrading any space’s overall design with its futuristic, simple aesthetic. The single-lever handle makes it easy to adjust water temperature and pressure, while the two-hole deck mount offers a cleaner, contemporary look for kitchen counters.

5) Black is the new Black

Dark steel and oil-rubbed finishes are an up-and-coming kitchen trend, replacing the copper and rose gold styles that have been predominantly popular over the last few years. This two-handle kitchen faucet from the Americana collection embodies a rustic, country farmhouse look, and the gorgeous moroccan bronze finish offers a rich, multi-faceted coloring that pairs perfectly with both traditional and eclectic kitchen designs.
