Celebrating the kitchen not only as a space for cooking but also for entertaining, consumers are choosing eye-catching designer faucets appointed with luxurious finishes as kitchen centerpieces. Topping the list of kitchen design trends in 2023 are faucet finishes such as nickel, chrome, black, and brass and options like brushed, matte, polished, satin, and dual-tone finishes.
GRAFF’s faucet finishes do more than reflect and set trends. Case in point, the Satin Nickel finish, which is both on trend and timeless, while also keeping kitchen faucets looking pristine by minimizing fingerprints and water spots with GRAFF’s exclusive Steelnox® technology.
And because Satin Nickel is a powder coat finish, it’s also resistant to humidity and ultraviolet light and has a long lifespan. Complementing popular earthy kitchen tones, GRAFF’s Olive Bronze is another long-lasting powder coat finish, as is Architectural White, which helps give kitchens an airy, open feel.
With brushed finishes in demand for 2023, GRAFF offers luxurious options including Brushed Nickel, Unfinished Brushed Brass, Brushed Brass PVD, Brushed Onyx PVD®, Vintage Brushed Brass, Brushed Rose Gold PVD® and new Brushed Rustic Bronze.
Vintage Brushed Brass is a classic finish choice for fans of farmhouse, transitional, and traditional kitchen décor, while also offering a rustic or industrial accent for contemporary and minimalist styles. It also features a liquid epoxy coating with similar protective qualities to powder coat finishes.
PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) is a coating process that creates a very high level of surface hardness and resistance to atmospheric agents and house detergents by bonding a precious metal to the surface of the faucet. In addition to brushed PVD finish options, GRAFF also offers PVD finishes including Polished Brass, Onyx, Gunmetal, Rose Gold, and new Warm Bronze, Brushed Nickel, Polished Nickel, Polished Rustic Bronze, and Brushed, Polished and Satin Gold PVD options.
As a trending kitchen faucet color for 2023, black comes into focus with GRAFF’s Architectural Black™ and Matte Black, powder coat finishes that complement both light- and dark-colored kitchen countertops. Elevating culinary interiors ranging from minimalist to traditional, black finishes make a statement both practical and artful.
GRAFF’s Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel, and Polished Nickel are plated precious metal finishes with a luminous sheen that spotlights the faucet’s design and centers the kitchen. Durable and easy to maintain, plated finishes are created through a process that uses electric currents to coat metals such as nickel and chrome on a brass base.
The popularity of brass kitchen faucets in natural and antique finishes, such as living finishes is rising. Intended to change in appearance over time, GRAFF’s living finishes include Unfinished Brass and Unfinished Brushed Brass. Living finishes are unprotected, allowing them to evolve and develop a unique warmth and character, a rich patina that gives the kitchen an appealing sense of heritage and history.
GRAFF’s Harley collection features exquisitely knurled finishes that evoke jewelry engraved with fine filigree. Finishes such as Polished Brass complement Harley’s knurled details, creating a dazzling centerpiece for the culinary space.
Both timeless and in step with trends, GRAFF’s new Segovia and Futurismo kitchen collections are available in dual-tone finishes. Segovia’s dual-tone selections include Polished Gold/Matte Black and Polished Chrome/Matte Black, and Futurismo’s include Satin Nickel/Matte Black and Brushed Onyx/Brushed Brass.
