Andrew and I are slowly putting together our farmhouse kitchen, and have made a ton of small updates so far. The sink that came with the house is a stainless steel double sink, but the faucet is very blah. My favorites are the ones that arch up for filling big pots, and have that rustic farm vibe. Ours? No. Does it dispense warm and cold water? Technically, yes. Is it gorgeous and exceptionally functional? Nope.
Let’s bring it in for a minute, y’all…
You know darn well, when you update one thing in any room, it leads to another.
This weekend, we added the backsplash, which I am telling you about on Monday, because it looks amazing. However…
Before we even finished, I mentioned to Andrew that we should replace the faucet with something of the farmhouse kitchen style that we can benefit from and use now, as well as have it transition to the salvaged sink retrofit later.
The current faucet hurts my eyes. And I need a sprayer. Mind you, this is how all our tiny projects turn into big projects.
We used Kohler faucets in our first-home-turned-income-property, and they were affordable, beautiful, a breeze to install, so sticking with what I know, I ventured to the mothership – The Home Depot and am loving these three. Check these out, because I need your help here…
Gorgeous, right? It’s got the industrial vibe Andrew likes, and is inspired by the commercial kitchen faucets, which is what I like. I also enjoy that the sprayer stays in place by magnetic docking arms, so it stays secure. What else is super helpful with the Sous, is that the sprayer is a 2-function spray head. It’s got stream and sweep, which is a wide forceful spray that facilitates all our kitchen tasks, and a detachable spring and spray head, which takes care of all those cleaning tasks, so my world-famous baked-on-oatmeal won’t stand a chance!
That aspect sounds amazing, since I’m sans-sprayer at the moment, and use my hands or a cup to get the scolding water where it needs to go. Installing this one is DIY-er friendly because it’s got 29 1/2″ flexible supply lines and quick-connect fittings (room to work, and no funky pieces to attach and assemble). It also comes with the option for a 3-hole deck cover (which I need specifically for the new sink because it’s got 4 holes), as well as a lotion/soap dispenser! These are one of my most favorite features, and I really miss having one, it’s insanely convenient.
Yes please! This one has all the farmhouse kitchen charm I need in my kitchen, and it comes in an oil-rubbed bronze finish, which I think would look really amazing anywhere… especially our kitchen which has black appliances.
This has DockNetik technology to hold the head in place securely through Kohler’s signature magnetic docking system. This is great, because… kids. It’s also got the 2-function spray head that features stream and sweep, a wide forceful spray, and a MasterClean spray face that features flexible nozzles to make it easy to clean. That with ProMotion technology for smooth spray head control? Easy clean up with minimal effort? DIY friendly install, flexible hoses, deck plate for 3 holes? Get this farmhouse kitchen style faucet in my kitchen!
I like this one too, because it’s got that high neck, the ProMotion technology for smooth spray head control with minimal effort (can you tell this is right up my alley?), classic clean lines, and it’s just plain pretty! This one also has 30″ supply lines with quick-connect fittings, a soap/lotion dispenser, as well as the 3 hole deck plate. Andrew likes that it’s minimal and a straight-forward design – the man knows what he likes.
I need to be able to fill pots like that! All three of these faucets can do this, so I’m winning either way. I love that Kohler finishes resist corrosion and wear (our old house has been with Kohler faucets now for a little over 7 years, and they’re still going strong), so I know no matter which we choose, we’re definitely getting great quality and lifetime product! In my research for these farmhouse kitchen faucets, I found that they all have a scratch shield that protects the faucet from daily use, and they’ve all got a ceramic disc valve (which last 2x longer than others), and how convenient, they’re all available exclusively at The Home Depot. Which is great, because we’re there nearly every weekend (seriously).
So, now my question is this… which one are you leaning toward? I am truly in love with the Worth, but Andrew likes the Sous, so I think we’re going to have to marinate on it in the aisles of The Home Depot this weekend.
