The Best Kitchen Faucets For Under $50

When it comes time to replace your kitchen faucet, there are many factors to consider. As Signature Hardware points out, one aspect to decide on is the faucet style. A common standard design has three holes – one for the spout and two for each of the handles. In comparison, a single hole faucet contains a hole for the spout where the handles are located. A bridge model has the water supplies visible at the top of the counter, while a center set has a three-hole design installed on a panel. If you’re looking for upscale designs, you can also choose pot-fill faucets that install above the stove or outdoor faucets that, you guessed it, are installed outside.

Once your basic style is established, you need to dig a little deeper and think about the functionality of the faucet. Of course, a standard design has a spout and two handles. However, there are also pull-out and pull-down models. A spring spout model leaves the hose free, while a side sprayer comes with a separate sprayer. After choosing the features, you need to decide on a color and finish. Think about the aesthetics of your kitchen and find a color that blends in naturally. Finally, you have to consider the price. If you’re on a budget, here are some of the best kitchen faucets for under $50.
