These days, faucet designers and manufacturers are coming out with amazing looking and functioning faucets for the kitchen.

In fact, the selection is so awesome, it’s hard to decide.  And decide you must, for the right faucet can make a bold statement or fall flat.

To help you with your faucet choice, we put together this list of what we consider the top faucets.  We chose the ten below based on customer feedback, personal opinion and wanting to include a variety of styles/functions.

Types of Kitchen Faucets

There are countless kitchen faucet styles out there. Before you go out shopping for one, you should know the different types that are available to simplify the process.

These are the most common types:

  • Two-handle: comes with two handles for adjusting water temperature and pressure
  • Single-handle: comes with one handle for adjusting water temperature and pressure
  • Motion sense/touchless: completely hands-free, although it usually comes with a handle, too
  • Separate spray: comes with a sprayer that is not attached to the faucet
  • Pull-down: perfect for kitchens that have big sinks
  • Pull-out: ideal for kitchens that don’t have much sink space, as you can fill pots and pans up from the counter

What You Need to Know About Mounting

Another thing you need to consider before you buy a kitchen faucet it what mounting style you want. There are three options available when it comes to mounting: deck-mounted, wall-mounted, and sink-mounted.

  • Deck-mounted: centered on the countertop just behind the sink
  • Wall-mounted: centered on the wall behind the sink
  • Sink-mounted: centered on the sink

When you are replacing a faucet that is sink-mounted, but not the sink itself, you will be limited in your choices because you will want to get one doesn’t have more holes than your previous one did. You can always cover up an extra hole by buying one that comes with an escutcheon plate.

What’s the “Hole” Story?

When looking at faucets, you will likely see one-hole, two-hole, three-hole, and sometimes four-hole mentioned in the descriptions. These descriptions refer to the number of holes in your sink. The most common types are one-hole and three-hole. Besides the faucet, this is what each includes:

  • One-hole: just the faucet with a handle attached to it
  • Two-hole: a handle and another item, perhaps a lotion dispenser or a side spray
  • Three-hole: two handles
  • Four-hole: two handles and another object
