You may think faucets are just faucets, but to designers, they’re kitchen jewelry. “New faucets can completely change the look and feel of the kitchen,” says Kohler Design Studio Manager Alex Yacavone. “For example, replacing chrome with a brass finish can take a space from neutral to more glamorous or if you are looking for a modern sophisticated look, matte black is a great option.” Here are some of the newest shapes and finishes from leading manufacturers.
