Upgrade Your Kitchen Faucet to a Luxury Hansgrohe Faucet

  • Easier Cleaning

With a modern, upgraded faucet cleaning your dishes and other tasks will be easier than ever. This faucet has multiple spray functions that you can toggle in between with the touch of a finger, making it a breeze to spray and rinse dishes. Spending less time in the kitchen cleaning gives you more time to enjoy doing other things.

  • Better Looking Kitchen

An old, rusty kitchen faucet can be unsightly, and even noisy! Having a new, high-quality kitchen faucet will enhance the entire kitchen, and the faucet can be the focal point of the room. The kitchen faucet is often the workhouse of the kitchen, doing most of the heavy duty tasks. Having a nice looking kitchen faucet is a great way to upgrade the interior of your cooking space.

  • Safer Drinking Water

In older days people were not as educated as they are now about the dangers of lead and other chemicals in our drinking water. Older faucets may still contain lead, mercury, asbestos, or other dangerous chemicals that are detrimental to your families health. This faucet is made of only top of the line, certified safe and durable materials that provides safe and clean drinking water.

  • Save Energy and Water

Old leaky faucets can cost you tons of extra money in utility bills over the years. Replacing a dripping faucet with a new, high-quality Hansgrohe faucet will help you to save water and reduce your bills. Another benefit of saving more water is that you will be reducing your environmental footprint. Wasting water is bad for the environment. A new faucet such as the Lacuna by Hansgrohe has an aerated stream of water and limited GPM (gallons per minute) which makes the sink far more water efficient without sacrificing a bit of cleaning power.


  • Versatile, High-Quality Finish

The finish is available in Chrome or Steel Optik (a soft-matte version of stainless steel), which are both metallic gray surfaces that are popular in modern appliances for their clean appearance. Both chrome and stainless steel are hygienic and suitable for use in food prep environments. This finish will not easily corrode, rust, spot, fade, or scratch even with decades of use. It is electroplated to the surface of the durable brass body for a long-lasting shine.

  • Pull-Down Spray Head

The Lacuna faucet by Hansgrohe has a pulldown faucet head that has three different spray modules: spray, needle, and pause. The rinse and spray functions can be toggled between with only the touch of a finger which makes doing the dishes and other kitchen tasks easier than ever.

The spray wand is attached to the end of a flexible yet durable metal hose that can rotate on an axis of up to 150 degrees for a full range of reach. You can easily reach all kinds of hard to clean messes, and the high-pressure spray function easily cuts through tough grease and dirt.

The pause feature will temporarily stop the flow of water, which encourages you to cut the water off in between tasks, as it saves you preferred water temperature and flow. Using the pause feature instead of the handle to cut the water off in between use while doing the dishes and cooking will make it a more efficient process.

  • High-Quality Craftsmanship

The main body of the sink is made out of high quality brass which is the top choice for the body of a faucet because it is so long lasting and durable. Brass sinks do not easily corrode, break, or wear down even after decades of use.

To finish it off, a high-quality steel or chrome finish is electroplated to the surface for a beautiful and hygienic surface. Hansgrohe is a German engineer, who makes each product to last for a lifetime. Engineering every faucet for modern luxury and convenience, they never cut corners on the quality of their craft or materials used.


  • No Hands-Free Feature

Hands-free faucets operate with the use of motion sensors that detect motion and start the water automatically. This reduces the spread of germs via the handle and is a great option for those with limited hand mobility. Hands-free faucets are typically more expensive than traditional faucets.


The Hansgrohe Lacuna Pull Down Kitchen Faucet is a beautiful modern and contemporary faucet that has many convenient features such as the pull down spray nozzle. The spray wand is on the end of a durable metal hose that reaches around at 150 degrees to reach all sorts of hard to clean spots. The spray settings include a high-pressure spray for tough messes, as well as a rinse, and a pause setting.

The installation process is super easy and makes a great project for DIY home improvers. You can easily complete the installation in only an hour with only one person. It comes with a matching base plate and soap dispenser, making it suitable for a muti-hole sink. Hansgrohe faucets come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and finishes. There is a luxury Hansgrohe kitchen faucet for everyone, and they make great gifts as well!
