It’s a challenge picking the perfect kitchen faucet. Who knew? My husband and I looked at endless options during our recent remodel. We narrowed down the choices to two German designs: the Grohe Concetto Faucet and the Dornbracht Tara Logic Single-Level Basin Mixer. One at $376.35, the other at $1,656. Which one won us over? If money were no object, our top choice would have been the Dornbracht, but we went with the Grohe. After all, the products are almost identical.

Above: We installed a Grohe Concetto Faucet in our kitchen; $376.35 from eFaucets. It’s available in super steel (our choice) and in polished chrome.
