black appliances and a stainless steel sink plus granite countertops with black, tan, and grey colors in it, what faucet would you choose to replace your faucet with?

What is the rage right now?

Not the rage, but I love this one. I had it put in my old house when DH first got sick so I could easily wash his hair. I liked it so much, I bought another one when I renovated my condo kitchen.

I love the style that Amiga shared. If you ate not replacing counters make sure you look at the base. Some have a several inch bar or the type in the picture.

When we redid our counters and dink I did not want a faucet like Amigas. I wanted a lower profile. Now we are replacing it.

That is hugely funny beecause I was just looking at the very faucet! It is similar to the one we have, which I think is Pfiefer.

We do have hard water and often get water stains, especially when the water softener can't keep up. This color would probably do good.

We put a new faucet in about 10 yaars ago and I just notied that their is a very tiny spot before the actual faucet where water is spraying out. Thought I would start looking before we have to go to town and buy one.

I like the look of this kind: https://www.overstock.com/Home-Garde...t=&searchidx=0

kahlua, I donít understand those faucets. What does the thing that winds around do?

I really like the way that one looks, but I always buy for easy cleaning. That doesnít look like I could keep it sparkly.

The part that winds around is to make it a sprayer so you can reach the entire sink (basically a spring).

I would do brushed nickel or matte black.
I love the look of the matte black but it could be too much with black appliances.

ETA: read you have a stainless sink. I would do chrome in that case.

I replaced my old faucet with this one in my stainless steel sink. I like the sleek contemporary look, and it is easy to keep clean of water spots.

I really love the look of bellringerís fabulous contemporary faucet. But....please consider whether you want a sprayer. I have come to depend on mine.

bellringer, a question: do you drip on the faucet head when you turn it off with wet hands?

I have one similar to that posted

I have a separate spray head to one side that was previously installed so I opted not to get the built in sprayer. Mine has a swivel head there that toggles between a solid stream and a spray.

I like the taller faucet head. I have some bulkier pans and things so it is really handy.

My sink is brushed stainless so it goes really well.

Last year I installed one very similar to the picture Amiga shared. I also have stainless steel sinks. My faucet has the 'no touch' feature to turn the water on and off and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who does a lot of cooking or crafting. It makes cleaning hands so much easier. I also really like the picture you shared Kahlua and actually looked at one similar before I purchased the one I did. It came down to what fit my kitchen and home style better. The more traditional stlye fit my home better.

about my faucet...

If my hands are dripping wet, I may get drips on the lever. But I always wipe the whole thing down with a towel after doing dishes.

When I was searching for a picture, I noticed a similiar one that may have had a sprayer at the end of the horizontal faucet part. (I hadn't been used to a sprayer, so didn't think of that feature when I was looking at new ones.)

Mine is almost identical to the picture amiga shared. I would maybe choose a black finish and one where you can just tap it with the back of your hand to turn it on.

Thank you all for your feedback! Leaning toward the faucet recommended first by Amiga and seconded by a few others. I tend to sly away from the more technical features like touch just because I like to keep simple things simple. I do understand the draw, though!
