How We Assessed Each Individual Faucet
Our researchers clocked in a good deal of hours, diligently putting each of the final eleven best high end kitchen faucets under their microscope. In order to offer you the best overall selection, we were sure to include an assortment of models from which to choose, such as single-handle faucets, two-handled faucets, a touch faucet and those with pull-down sprayer heads.
Let's face it, faucets represent the workhorses of the kitchen, so they take a good deal of use and punishment. As such, we chose to examine such features as the finish, type of handles and their construction, as well as how well the sprayer heads maneuver as you're washing your dishes. We tested each faucet handle for ease of use, to ensure that they indeed function as promised. If any faucet performed under par, they were eliminated immediately. After all, the right handle configuration can make your time at the sink a pleasant or unpleasant experience. As a result, we only included faucets which received a high customer satisfaction rating.
Spout reach and height were also put to the test. As for maneuverability, we took stock of the ability of the spout to rotate a clean 360 degrees as well as the type of spray heads, from pull-out and pull-down to side sprayers. If the pull-down sprayer did lock in place sufficiently, we eliminated that faucet as a candidate for our list.
Finally, we can't forget the importance of the design factor. Exterior design plays an important part in finding the perfect fit for your overall design decor. So, we've worked to include a variety of designs that reflect both contemporary, traditional, as well as vintage design. Special features such as soap/lotion dispensers and including a faucet with an automatic shutoff were also keen on our list. Last but not least, while not all faucets are certified by the American with Disabilities Act, we found it important to include a few in our list. All of them are selected for a luxury commercial kitchen for residential use.
All of the luxury kitchen faucets on our list have been designed and developed by the top fixture manufacturers in the country. Each of these companies not only provide you with an excellent product but also back their product up with excellent warranties, as well as customer service.
Buying Guide for the Best Luxury Kitchen Faucet
In our review of the best luxury kitchen faucets of this year, it's crucial that you make some basic considerations before you purchase. For instance, one of the first considerations is the number of holes required for installation. If your sink has only 1 hole, and you admire a faucet that requires 4, then know that you'll need 3 more holes for installation. If the faucet of your dreams has 2 holes, and your sink 4, then all you'll need is to purchase a deck plate.
Also, If you're energy conscious, then you'll want to take a look at the flow rate. Flow rate simply means the amount of water that the manufacturer states will exit the faucet per minute. A faucet listed with 2.5 GPM, means that 2.5 gallons of water will exit that faucet, per minute. Flow rate is important when it comes to ensuring that your hot water tank can handle heating the output adequately.
Finally, please consider the size and reach. No matter how lovely that gooseneck faucet looks, if you've low-hanging cupboards, there's no way you can install it. As for the reach, if you own a double sink, then best make certain that the spout has a good enough reach to adequately work both basins, which includes the ability to swivel at least 100 degrees.

Hansgrohe Kitchen Faucets
Hansgrohe actually stands for Hans Grohe, the name of its founder. Hansgrohe was established way back in 1901 in Schiltach, Germany, where it remains to this day. It also has an American subsidiary, which is located in Alpharetta, Georgia. Not to be confused with Grohe AG, which is an altogether different fixture manufacturer. In fact, Grohe is a major competitor to Hansgrohe.
Unlike Rohl, which imports their designs from overseas, Hansgrohe likes to keep its hands on the process, so controls most of the design work for their high end faucets. This attention to detail has netted Hansgrohe a number of prestigious design awards including the IF Design Award of 2016, and the Red Dot Design Award in 2016. With regards to patents, all tolled, Hansgrohe has racked up over 2500 patents. Proud of their design work and designers, Hansgrohe has in total, over 180 designs and 93 brands to its name. As a result, this has emerged as one of the most expensive faucets company in the country. Prominent designers include Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Phoenix Design, Nendo Design and Front Design, among others.
Never one to sit on their laurels, Hansgrohe has also created a museum for water fixtures and bathrooms in 1997, Schiltach, Germany. This museum chronicles over a century of bathroom design. Hansgrohe also believes in being a responsible company and devotes much of it's time to community and sustainable causes. Customer support includes offering contact by phone or email, along with information on their websites including warranty information, parts and service information.

While Rohl does not design their faucets themselves, they are known to have some influence over some designs. Rohl upscale kitchen faucets are certified lead free, and comply with the US Safe Drinking Water Act, the U.S. Energy Policy and Conservation Act, American with Disabilities Act compliant and Not WaterSense Qualified.

With so many options involved in selecting the best luxury kitchen faucet for you, the process might seem a bit confusing at first. However, with a little thoughtful consideration, you'll be able to select the faucet which best suits your needs. First, remember to measure your sink area to determine just what height and reach will work for you. Next, consider what you'll need it for. For instance, those who are heavily into entertaining will love the semi-pro of pro models, while those of you who do little in the kitchen, will prefer a more basic model. Also, how important are features to you? If features matter, then look for the more techy high end kitchen sink faucets that offer features such as no-touch, or hot/cold indicator lights. If you wash a lot of pots and pan, or even if you give Fido a bath once in a while in the sink, then look for one with a tall gooseneck spout and dependable sprayer. In the end, by reading our luxury kitchen faucet review, we are confident that you'll select the best faucet for you.
