Inside: Black kitchen faucets are totally on trend. Check out my favorite budget buys and snag one for your kitchen today.
Well, almost anyway.
After 8 years of marriage, 2 kids and at least 6 (I lost count) different rental homes, we’re finally buying our first house. It’s exciting and annoying and a little stressful all rolled into one ball of massive paperwork.
We decided on a new build home because I’m more of an instant gratification kind of person, but I’ve already realized there will still be a million things I’ll want to change when we move in.
Case in point, the kitchen faucet.
I can’t believe how limited the faucet choices from our builder was. They all reminded me of the typical cookie-cutter faucets you see in homes everywhere you go. And since we’re already going to be living in a track home, I want the inside to be as eclectic and unique as possible.
Instead of paying extra for something we didn’t even like we decided to go with the standard faucet and replace it after we move in.
Which brings me to the real reason you’re here: black kitchen faucets.
I’m still not entirely sure if black is the color I want to go with but I’ve narrowed it down to either black or brass. Both are trending right now and go with a variety of design styles.
Below are my top picks for stunning black kitchen faucets under $300.
There are definitely some amazingly beautiful black kitchen faucets out there that aren’t listed below but a few of them were more than twice the price of the ones I’ve gathered here.

Affordable Black Kitchen Faucets That Look High-End
Delta Essa: This one has the modern sleek lines that I like, it’s matte black and it has a pull-down spray nozzle that is super convenient for spraying off food remnants.
Kohler Simplice: This faucet is very similar to the Delta above, but has a more free form handle. It’s also a pull-down nozzle and has a 360-degree rotating spout.
Pfister Lita: The Lita is simple and features a pull-down nozzle that offers 3 different features (soft stream, spray and pause).
Vigo Grammercy: This matte black faucet is one of the least traditional styles on the list. It’s made of solid brass construction and still has a pull-down nozzle.
Vigo Aylesbury: This Vigo faucet is also made of brass and has a matte black finish. The larger flared nozzle head gives this faucet a somewhat transitional (but still masculine) appearance.
Vigo Edison: The Edison is one of my top choices for black kitchen faucets. I love the black (obviously) color, the sleek lines and the industrial feel.
Danze Foodie Noir: The Foodie Noir looks like the older, more refined brother of the Edison. It has a similar feel, but the coil is smaller and less pronounced.
Delta Trinsic: The Trinsic is the ultimate in modern kitchen faucets. It has a sleek, minimalist look and surprisingly also has a pull out nozzle.
Ikea Bosjon: Leave it to the Swedes to strip down the kitchen faucet to only the basic necessities. This is the only faucet on the list without a pull down nozzle.
Is there a faucet that sticks out to you?
If we decide to go with a black faucet, I’m debating between the Vigo Edison or the Danze Foodie Noir. Both have the modern look with a touch of industrial that I really like. Which would you go with? Let me know in the comments below.
