How many holes should your kitchen sink have?

When selecting a kitchen faucet, one crucial aspect to consider is the number of installation holes in your kitchen sink. Some sinks come with pre-drilled holes designed to accommodate various faucet types and additional features, such as soap dispensers or sprayers. 

If you’re upgrading a faucet on an existing sink, you’ll want to consider the number of holes already cut and select a faucet that matches, or you can use a deck plate to cover unused openings. On the other hand, if you’re choosing a new kitchen sink and faucet, the world is your oyster! 

No-hole kitchen faucet sinks

No-hole kitchen faucet sinks are an excellent choice for an uninterrupted countertop surface with wall-mounted faucets.

One-hole kitchen faucet sinks

One-hole kitchen sinks are minimalistic and offer a simplistic, streamlined look with single-handle faucets, integrated spouts, and handles.

Two-hole kitchen sinks are versatile and functional, and they can work with faucets with separate controls for hot and cold water or single-handle kitchen faucets with a soap dispenser or a side sprayer.

Three-hole kitchen faucet sinks 

Kitchen sinks with three holes are meant for use with traditional faucets with separate handles for hot and cold water and a central spout. Alternatively, they can be used with a single-handle faucet with additional features for your kitchen workspace.

Kitchen faucet finishes

Another big decision when choosing your kitchen faucet: selecting a finish. Stainless steel, chrome, brass, nickel, gold, bronze, matte black … there are so many options to pick from!

If you’re looking for a sleek finish that matches a variety of sink materials and decor, stainless steel kitchen faucets and chrome-finished faucets would work well. A brass or bronze kitchen faucet will evoke warmth. Nickel’s subtle luster offers versatility and durability, while a matte black kitchen faucet stands out for its bold statement — and is one of the most popular kitchen faucet finishes in 2024.

Faucet features to consider for your kitchen

The perfect luxury kitchen faucet is one that’s customized to your cooking needs and lifestyle! Nowadays, kitchen faucets come with a variety of features, including filtration, eco-friendly water-saving features, and technology like touchless kitchen faucet sensors or voice-activated kitchen faucets

There are also kitchen faucets for specific uses, like a pot filler faucet, which you can install over your stove top so you no longer have to carry heavy pots from the sink to the stove. If you entertain often, you may even consider installing an island sink and faucet – after all two sinks are better than one!
