According to research a little over 60% of your time spent in the kitchen is used standing in front of the kitchen sink. Having a great kitchen faucet not only adds to the functionality but if chosen right, it adds to the character of the kitchen itself.
But this can be a little overwhelming due to the amount of choice and brands available. In this article, I discuss my favorites, Moen and Delta faucets in particular.
Both are well-known names in the kitchen industry and there are divided opinions about which one is better.
Moen’s story begins when the founder set out to design a better water delivery system in 1937. Since then, the company has been making improvements and introducing products that are driven by perfection, innovation and great value.
Out of all the Faucets that I’ve used, my personal favorite is the
Moen Arbor motion-sense Kitchen Faucet. It has three sensors, two on the top and one near the base allowing it to be completely touchless. You just move your hand and the faucet activates!
It features a made to fit faucet head that extends out into the faucet hose. It has a power clean mode which allows it to spray at 50% more power, just in case you’re dealing with tough stains and smudges. And of course, it has the signature faucet hose design which Moen is known for making it super easy to use.
Delta, on the other hand, may seem like a complete opposite to Moen as a brand in a lot of ways.
They are a new company launched with a completely fresh and innovative approach in their ideas. Although they do not have a long history like the former, they are, however, motivated by three main things.
Delta believes that water has the power to transform the human experience every day, that there can be magic in simple solutions and that innovations should flow from human insight.
Since their inception, they have built their company around the needs of their customers and innovation, every step of the way.
My favorite Faucet by Delta is the Delta 9113-a bar kitchen faucet without a doubt.
I’m in love with the absolute sleek look and clean and elegant design. It features a single-handed faucet with the pull-down technology for an easy and smooth clean.
Along with that, this sink is featured in four different finishes, Chrome, Arctic Stainless, Matte Black, and Venetian Bronze and you do have the option of choosing between the touchless and the standard touch design.
My favorite feature is the magnetic snapback design to snap the head back into place it has two distinctive spray methods, spray, and stream, for cleaning a larger area or to remove harder stains.
In my opinion, both companies share a common passion to create great products and both companies value innovation, style and quality. It is difficult to choose one over the other but hopefully, the insights shared in this article will help you with your decision.
