Amazon’s private label efforts in the kitchen and bathroom are expanding. Amazon, which already sells four brands of private label toilet paper, has launched a new line of AmazonBasics brand private label faucet hardware.
Items in the new AmazonBasics kitchen and bath hardware collection are all priced below $100. For example:
- AmazonBasics Modern Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet – Oil-Rubbed Bronze ($82.49)
- AmazonBasics Modern Two Handle Basin Faucet – 4-Inch, Oil-Rubbed Bronze ($54.99)
- AmazonBasics Standard Two-Handled Basin Faucet – 4-Inch, Polished Chrome ($46.99)
Expert installation through Amazon Home Services is also available for $103.39 per unit.
Kitchen and bath hardware is a hotly contested space on Amazon. Moen, Delta, Kohler, Kraus, and American Standard are some of the largest brands with substantial review volume. Beyond those give are a bevy of lesser-known brands fighting for sales, including Wewe, Kingo, Premier, Ufaucet, Friho, Valisy, Vapsint, Parlos, BWE, and more.
In other words, it’s an area ripe for Amazon to introduce private label products.
We’re curious to see whether Amazon takes further steps to move upmarket in kitchen and bath hardware into the realm of products created by higher end brands that are traditionally sold through contractors and interior designers. That is likely a while off, but as Amazon has shown with its recently-launched Now House by Jonathan Adler brand of furniture, it has some proclivity to create brands that meet the sensibilities of customers beyond the value end of the market.
