What comes to mind when you hear the word “luxury?” For some, it may conjure up images of cruises, cocktails, and living the high life, but the Oxford Dictionary defines it a little differently: “a state of great comfort or elegance,” which can be applied to kitchen faucets, too.
If you’re remodeling your kitchen, you can add a touch of both home-style comfort and magazine-worthy elegance by installing one of the best luxury kitchen faucets on the market. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home—your finishings should serve the dual purpose of creating an atmosphere you love and reflecting your sense of style.
Before you head out to shop for the best luxury kitchen faucets, take a look at these comparisons and choose what would suit your style best.
The compact nature of Kraus’s polished design is perfect for residential use. The 180-degree swivel keeps it tight and avoids unnecessary splash. Also, the pulldown spray head can be used to reach further-away spots, if necessary. The Smart Handle design with 90-degree movement allows easy installation and for use in tight spaces where there’s little or no backsplash clearance.
As well as having no placement restrictions, it’s distinctive and comes with a water-saving aerator, so you’re getting all the good stuff in a neat, compact package. Kraus extends a limited warranty to the purchasers of their products, giving you assurance over its high-quality products.

This faucet may be pricier than other options, but it embodies luxury in both senses of the word—elegance and comfort. Its sophisticated curves make it both safe and fashionable, with no sharp edges that could cause injury. Additionally, four finishing options allow you to find exactly the right match for your decor.
Depending on which finish you choose, you may have the option of one or two motion sensors for touch-activation. We love this hands-off feature — it’s the height of comfort and is extremely clean and user-friendly when you’re more hands-on with cooking! The Power Clean technology and smooth, secure retractable spray head also make it very easy to wash anything and everything, with minimal fuss.
Moen faucets are built to last, and you’ll be under their lifetime limited warranty should you buy one of these. Should a leak spring up due to wear and tear, Moen will provide replacement parts free of charge.

If you want something that doesn’t quite look like your average faucet, the Pfister LG534 could be the one for you. The sharp lines and unusual spray head make this an eye-catching addition to your kitchen.
This range is described as “bold, ultra-modern minimalist,” and its minimalistic approach extends to its water wastage —the faucet design is compliant with the California Energy Commission’s water-efficiency standards. The fancy design doesn’t sacrifice any practicality, though. It has a fully rotational spout, forward-only handle lever, and comes with an optional deck plate to finish off the fashionable look.
Pfister offers a Pforever Warranty on all its faucets. Make sure you have your original purchase slip handy!

It can be tough to find a faucet that’s well-priced, looks stylish and offers high-end features. This offering from Dalmo takes the top spot for best value for exactly those reasons.
Although this faucet only comes in one finish (brushed nickel), it’s resistant to oil, water stains, and fingerprints, which is helpful for keeping it clean and shiny. It also meets the NSF standards to ensure water quality, making it safe and hygienic for family use.
Dalmo utilizes ceramic valve technology, which is another advanced feature that reduces leakage and prolongs the life of the faucet. The cherry on top is the touch-activation feature, which is typically only found on more expensive models.
- Great value for a touch-activated faucet.
- LED light to indicate low battery.
- Resistant to fingerprints and water stains.
- Three spray modes—stream, spray and pause.
- Touch-activation feature.
- Touch activation could be triggered accidentally, leading to water wastage.
- The sensor only switches water off after three minutes of no action, which can lead to some wastage.
We recommend the Fapully as it’s not only super stylish and modern, but it’s twice as useful as a single spout. The pulldown sprayer and fixed spout can be used separately or at the same time and can fulfill various purposes.
The pulldown sprayer is fantastic for cleaning purposes and can be moved around quite freely to get water into any appliance and every corner of your sink. Having a fixed spout is brilliant for quick use, like pouring yourself a glass of water, washing your hands, or wetting a sponge.
This faucet also has a striking contemporary design, which gives a luxury feel, no matter how the rest of your home is designed. This luxury faucet is made of brass underneath its beautiful nickel finish, making it extremely durable.
The manufacturer also makes use of ceramic disc tech to make sure the faucet lasts as long as possible. They don’t have many moving parts, are corrosion-resistant and air-tight, and, according to the manufacturer, can survive up to 500,000 open-and-closes!
- Unique LED water temperature indicator.
- Water flow generates the LED’s power.
- Easy to use press-handle design.
- The sprayer and spout can be used at the same time.
- Limited reach on the pulldown spray head.
