Kitchen and Bathroom Faucet Trends for 2011

There are lots of fun options in energy efficient kitchen and bathroom faucet trends for 2011. Brushed nickel still reigns, but other finishes are gaining popularity.

Kitchen Faucets

Here is the king of faucets in brushed nickel. It features a tall goose neck and a pull-down sprayer hose with touch control. Just tap it and it turns on and tap again to turn off. Especially nice when your hands are messy.

No more wrestling with hoses on the side. Sprayer hose pulls down out of the faucet. When you're done, just pop it back. Shown in chrome, which is gaining in popularity, especially in sleek urban kitchens.

Many of the new faucets offer regular flow and an aerator option for rinsing fruits and vegetable. A water saving pause function allows you to temporarily interrupt the flow of water without turning off the faucet.

Oil rubbed bronze looks attractive and dramatic in a lot of settings. This antique style faucet is particularly nice in restored Victorians, bungalows, and farmhouses. It complements the style of the home and lends a bit of authenticity.
