Faucets as Art

Faucet as Art

A great faucet is such an integral part of a kitchen design. 

It needs to be utilitarian, as well as mechanically sound, but it also needs to be a work of art. I like to look for features that a client requires, then I build upon the design element along with style of the kitchen.

A truly cool faucet is one that I placed in my own kitchen. Many manufacturers have versions of the pullout, dual-spray, coil-stem look. The pricing varies as much as the many versions available. 

I typically go for the single-hole faucet to allow the granite to be as unmarred as possible.  So, in that case, a single-handle faucet fits the bill.  There are also many dual-handle faucets that work for traditional and country French looks. 

It’s endless, but the best advice I give to my clients is to buy quality. Big-box stores will carry a lesser—yet similar—version, but the lifespan is also lesser. 

Go for broke when choosing your kitchen faucet as it will anchor the entire room and last long.

Many of these counters called "granite" are most certainly not. Consult a qualified geologist before advertising them as such.
