Once you’ve narrowed down your interior design style, there are endless ways to support it. You probably already know what shapes, textures, and colors work best for your chosen design but after that things get a little more complicated. 

For instance, what light fixtures should you get for your MidMod? Is there a particular cabinet knob that will work better than another? What about faucets? Each of those elements will add to or detract from the style in your space. Picking the right stuff will seal the deal on your design.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the best modern kitchen faucets for some of the trendiest design styles.


Mid-century modern style has been popular in one form or another for decades. It’s been enjoying an especially big heyday for the last decade. Finding a kitchen faucet to suit your MidMod sensibilities is pretty easy. 

Mid-century modern loves clean lines as much as it loves curving organic ones. Reach for a simple, streamlined gooseneck kitchen faucet design without embellishment. The Brizo Litze Single Handle Arc Spout faucet is straightforward without being spare—a perfect match for MidMod design.

Or go with something a bit more angular with the Brizo Litze Single Handle Angled Spout faucet. It’s lines are just as clean but with the addition of some elegant, modern angles.

Bohemian design is relaxed, personal, and founded on layering. Layer colors, patterns, and textures in a carefree, way that places creativity above all else. Boho also includes a handmade type feel with lots of natural materials. Finding the right modern faucet for this style can be a bit tricky, as the clean, shiny faucet you see so much of probably won’t work in a Boho setting. 

Dark finishes are a good choice, as well as unique faucet features. Pot fillers often have the feel you’re going for in Boho design. Moen’s Double Handle Wall Mount Pot Filler  in black has the right vibes. Blanco’s Empressa Double Handle Bridge faucet in Oil Rubbed Bronze is another great option for Boho style. 

Art Deco

Characterized by geometrics, high polish, high-contrast colors, and lots of metallics, Art Deco style hails from the 1920s and 30s. Think Great Gatsby and you’ll be in the right frame of mind. It’s a refined style preoccupied with opulence. You really can’t go wrong with any modern faucet that’s high-polish gold.

This Brizo Rook faucet features details that set it apart from the rest. Go with the bright gold color to draw further attention to the faucet. Continue the gold accents throughout the kitchen to amp up the drama in your Art Deco kitchen.

Scandinavian style is sleek, clean lined, and minimalist. Yet at the same time, it’s comfortable and warm. It’s filled with natural elements on their best behavior. Neutral color palettes and cozy design make finding a modern faucet simple. Just stick to clean shapes and matte colors and you’re in business.

Graff’s Sospiro kitchen faucet is perfect. The long arching neck and straightforward design in Brushed Nickel perfectly suits the Scandinavian style. 


Cousin to Scandinavian design, Japandi is a blend of elegant Japanese style and Scandinavian simplicity. The result is an uncomplicated and comfortable design that brings the tranquility of nature right into the home. 

A modern faucet in matte metal finish like this Delta DST square base faucet is just the ticket. It stands out with unique, minimalist design but blends into its surroundings as well. The Franke Active Neo faucet is another option for simple Japandi design.

California Chic

Cali Chic is related to Boho style in that they are both relaxed and focused on naturals. Cali Chic takes it a step further and often takes on a Southwest feel. It’s earthy in a high desert or So Cal beach sort of way. Its pastel and neutral color palette embraces matte finishes and a variety of textures.

This Franke Orca faucet offers interesting curves and simple details plus a matte metallic that help you work a Cali Chic vibe. 


This style embraces the raw and refines it for an urban rustic type feel. Exposed beams, bricks, ductwork are all trademarks of industrial style. It can also carry a bit of a commercial overtone in your kitchen with restaurant style appliances and fixtures. 

Go with a toggle or pull down sprayer faucet reminiscent of commercial dish rooms. The Grohe Toggle Sprayer faucet gives you just the right vibe for an industrial kitchen design.
