Delta kitchen appliances are well-made and available for all budgets—and most also come with special warranties for the buyer. Delta also creates some other designs—from single-handle faucets to wall-mounted and touch-less faucets—they provide many color and finish choices to choose from. Overall, Delta is recognized for their simple patterns and lasting products—and their kitchen faucets are no exception. Nevertheless, there are other brands competing against Delta that offer some of the same features at different price points with different looks and feels.
Brands such as Kohler and Moen also offer high quality kitchen faucets with a variety of styles, appealing to the customer base of their main competitor. So, how does Delta stand up to these competitors and what can you expect from them?
First, let’s look at what Delta offers. Since 1958, Delta has been offering its customers a wide range of options for their kitchen faucets. From the classic black and white designs to modern styles, Delta has always been known for its unique design and functionality. This is why it has become one of the most popular brands in the market.
Delta offers several faucets designs such as their Leland design, their modern design, Trinsic, and their transitional design, Essa. They also offer several pull-out and pull-down designs. The finishes offered by Delta are the usual chrome and bronze, as well as other finishes like stainless, Venetian bronze, and matte black, rounding out any design you could possibly want for your kitchen space.
Delta’s faucets also feature the ShieldSpray technology that gives you a direct and powerful spray of water where you need it and protection from having water where you don’t need it. Most of the kitchen faucets nowadays have a touch-less option, and Delta is no exception. With a technology called the Touch20, customers are able use their faucet with just a tap of the back of their hand.
And lastly, and possibly more importantly, Delta’s kitchen faucets are available in the wide variety of price ranges, but overall they tend to be cheaper than other brands. In summary, Delta offers a variety of high-quality kitchen faucets with updated technology that is easy to install and maintain at a great price.
Delta’s competitors, such as Kohler and Moen, are competing for the same customers in the market. Therefore, they are stepping up their game when it comes to features and design.
With regards to design, Kohler offers their traditional design, the Memoirs collection, and Moen offers their Brantford collection. These traditional designs rival the Trinsic and Leland designs of Delta by offering similar looks with subtle differences in structure that brings in an extra dimension. In a similar way, these two brands also offer several pull-out and pull-down faucet options. The finishes of Kohler include the classic matte black and chrome, as well as the stainless finish. In contrast, they offer two nickel finishes that add a touch of sophistication to the look. Moen’s finishes are similar to those of the Delta brand. However, Delta does have an anti-microbial finish that neither of their competitors offer.
Technology is where Delta and their competitors are able to showcase their innovative products. Moen uses the Power Clean technology. It provides a direct spray that is 50% more powerful than most other faucet brands, including Delta. Kohler uses the Sweep Spray technology that is specially angled to sweep dirt off of your foods and dishes while keeping the water in your sink and not on your counter tops. Moen also prides itself on its motion-sensing faucets, of which Delta is not necessarily a household name. Kohler offers a Sensate faucet collection that can be turned on with a simple wave of the hand.
The price of the Kohler and Moen faucets are fairly consistent with those of Delta, while Delta tends to average a bit lower overall. With price ranges from $50 to $1000, all three brands deliver a superior product at various price points. However, the more technologically savvy options from Kohler tend to be more expensive than any other brand.
In general, all three brands offer quality kitchen faucets with various technologies that cater to the consumers’ needs, as well as providing products at a variety of price points to suit their budget. In contrast, the Delta brand is known to offer their products at a lower overall cost than Kohler and Moen, but there are features and finishes available in those brands that are not offered by Delta. No matter which brand you choose, you can rest assured that you will get a high-quality faucet that is perfect for your specific style and budget!
