Kohler K-29709-VS Artifacts Kitchen Sink Faucet
This Artifacts touchless sink faucet is a great way to start off our list as it blends contemporary, vintage style, with the ease of modern technology, and looks great doing so.
It couldn’t be easier to use the touchless feature as it responds in 20 milliseconds, and will switch on or off with a simple wave of your hand, or whatever object you’ve got in your hands, allowing for seamless, hygienic cooking that doesn’t stress you out.
The three function spray settings allow you to choose the spray that’s right for you and the job you’re doing: you can choose from:
sweep spray, which is a powerful ‘sweeping’ spray of water that is great for cleaning dishes and getting food out of hard to clean places.
Berry soft, which is a delicate spray that’s great for washing fragile fruit in your sink.
And Stream spray, which is more of your standard faucet which is great for general use.
As well as this there’s also a pull down sprayer, so that you can get the maneuverability out of your faucet that you’re sometimes going to need.
With a single lever on the side it couldn’t be easier to get your desired temperature, overall this is a really effective, smart faucet that looks great – especially if you’re going for a vintage aesthetic.
One thing to consider with this faucet is that kohler only offers a single year’s warranty, compared to some of the other items on this list, this shouldn’t be a huge deal though because there’s not many issues reported with this faucet.
- 3 spray modes are great, and you’ll find all of them have their uses.
- The magnetic system to attach the sprayer to the rest of the faucet is durable, and won’t let you down
- The touchless feature allows for quick and hygienic usage of the faucet, and it’s really easy to use.

There are a few helpful gadgets that you can use too, like the detachable sprayer, and the magnetic holder that it comfortably snaps back into once you’re done using the sprayer.
And with two different spray modes too, it’s clear that the metris isn’t just a looker.

Delta 9159TV-AR-DST Trinsic VoiceIQ Kitchen Faucet
Similarly to the last faucet, this Delta variant is filled to the brim with technology to help you out in the kitchen.
Whilst this faucet doesn’t have touchless technology it does have touchtech which allows you to turn the faucet on or off through touching the back of it with the back of your hand or your elbow, so just hygienic but not quite as easy as the Moen.
The parallels between the Delta Trinsic and the Moen are continued, with the Trinsic being able to also connect to your Amazon or Google devices, similar to the Moen.
As well as this you can also change the temperature of your water remotely, and get precise amounts dispersed from the tap remotely which is just as handy as it is outstandingly easy to do.
There’s also a few features that the Moen doesn’t have too, like the TempSense LED light that changes based off of the temperature of the water that is running through the faucet, a great little feature to make sure you don’t scald yourself on the hot water this faucet can produce.
There’s also a MagnaTite docking system for the sprayer to sit in, which allows it to sit much firmer, and never sag during the entirety of the faucet’s long lifetime.
This lifetime is long too, especially with Delta offering a 10 year long warranty to those that buy and use this faucet in a residential setting.

The final entry on this list, but still an outstandingly good Faucet, the Pfister Neera is not a smart faucet just like a few other entries on this list, but it makes up for that with its excellent design, and its unique look.
There’s tons of customization available too with 4 different finishes available which include stainless steel, Brushed gold, and even matt black which can look exceptionally great in a kitchen on theme with that color.
There’s 3 different spray settings available too, with spray, stream and the very useful pause setting being great for when you’re in a pinch.
The only drawback with this is that you have to hold the button on the faucet in order to use the pause setting.

To summarize, any of the 5 luxury faucets we’ve listed would be a great addition to your kitchen. Each of them has their own specific features that they perform amazingly well, and they all look great too.
If i had to go for one personally it would be one of the smart faucets as the handsfree customization and automation they offer is invaluable and honestly revolutionary.
