Every home has a kitchen and a bathroom, and faucets are necessary features for each to work properly. For decades, they have been treated as simple, functional tools to deliver water where it is needed in the home. Over the last decade, they have become essential design features instead of tools designed strictly for function.

Architects, builders and designers have learned that customers want faucets and other standard features in their homes to make a statement. Smart technology, combined with advancements in the functionality of faucets and showerheads, are changing the industry quickly.

The functions and styles most desired in bathrooms:

  • Shower heads that are both decorative and functional—consumers want dependable shower heads that are decorative and designed to fit any décor.
  • Water efficiency—water conservation is becoming more and more important in various regions of the world. The demand for shower components that incorporate water conservation without sacrificing the look or experience of a shower is increasing exponentially.
  • Multi-setting showerheads are shower heads that can offer a pulsating massage or a gentle mistle, with other settings in-between. Consumers want to customize their shower experience, and the easiest way to do so is with a shower head that functions in multiple settings.
  • Bathtub faucets that coordinate with the rest of the bathroom to give a professionally designed look.
  • Sink faucets that coordinate with the shower and match the décor of the bathroom. Water-saving features are essential for bathroom sinks as well.
  • Touchless faucets are an important feature for bathrooms for obvious reasons.
  • A variety of finishes that add to any décor—chrome, black, oil-rubbed bronze, nickle, and industrial brass and copper are all popular choices.

The functions and styles most desired for kitchen faucets:

  • As with bathrooms, consumers want water-saving and energy-efficient faucets with a variety of styles and finishes.
  • A wide array of functions, including separate spray heads, are essential features consumers are seeking.
  • Faucets that come with one to three faucet handles to suit the needs of any kitchen.
  • Designs that range from sleek and modern to those that are suitable for farmhouse and shabby chic décor.
  • Touchless faucets are becoming the rage in many kitchens because it keeps the faucet clean while allowing users to wash their hands without contaminating the faucet. The touchless feature is popular for those who wish to maintain the safest and most sanitary kitchen possible.
  • Commercial style faucets—commercial-grade kitchens are becoming more common in high-end homes around the world, and faucets are keeping up with the trend. Commercial faucets do more than serving a purpose; they also look trendy and upscale, appealing to many who are revamping their kitchens.
  • A wide range of finishes for all faucets and accessories allows consumers to create the kitchen of their dreams.
