While the personalization trend continues to gain ground, nowhere is this more evident than in the kitchen water station, where designers are using interesting faucet shapes and eye-catching finishes to create uniquely personal designs.
Elegant styles blend with touch-free technology, while Universal Design continues to impact faucet design. Chrome and stainless steel remain popular finish choices, but black and white are also making a comeback in the kitchen.
Below are some of the hottest trends in kitchen faucets right now.
--Personalization of the water station continues to be a growing trend, as consumers realize their faucet and accessories can be designed to function for the way they work. This has also led to a growing interest in mixing and matching materials.
--Faucets are increasingly being outfitted with a variety of innovations that make them more environmentally friendly and easier to use.
--Touchless or tap-on, tap-off technology is increasingly popular for kitchen faucets and consumers appreciate the convenience and sanitary benefits.
--Transitional styling continues to gain in popularity, perhaps due to the trend toward open living spaces, where the kitchen extends into the rest of the living space of the home.
--Universal Design remains evident in products such as easy-grasp faucets and pot fillers, and easy to use multiple functions such as spray, stream and pause.
