Sep 30, 2009
If I had to choose one thing to replace in a kitchen to give it an instant and inexpensive lift, I'd choose the faucet. With loads of style choices, a new spigot could be all it takes to make your dish-doing a little more enjoyable. And you don't need a big budget to consider fancy finish options. Here are 6 hand-picked faucets with style that outweighs their price tags.—Diane
Minimalist style doesn't usually fit a minimalist budget. In chrome (shown) or stainless.
I'll bet you thought you couldn't get this cool, commercial look for less than $300.
Oil-rubbed bronze is hot for traditional and Craftsman-inspired kitchens. Its popularity means you can now find it without paying the designer price tag. Even so, finding the finish at this price is almost unheard-of. Also in satin nickel.
No-nonsense utility in a sturdy design from Sweden.
Yes, polished brass is making a come-back, but context is everything. This example would add a beautiful touch to a French Country kitchen. The finish pairs well with light, painted cabinetry and clear, saturated colors like barn red and French blue. To keep the look 2009 instead of 1989, avoid using brass with deep jewel tones. Also in chrome, satin nickel, oil-rubbed bronze. Also available with cross handles.
A high-end finish and a modern take on the classic gooseneck style, for less than $100.
