Kitchen Faucet Dilemma

makmo73October 28, 2013

New granite countertops installed with Blanco Siligranit II Cafe Brown Performa sink (441313). The Performa sink is bowed at front and back edge. Because of that, faucet placement is a little farther back than if the edge were straight across. We chose the Moen Brantford Pull Down (7185) faucet, which looks great but spout reach is only 7 7/8." Turns out this was not a good choice of faucets with this sink. I need a faucet with longer spout reach as this one does not work for me. While I love having a pull down faucet, the shorter spout reach makes it very uncomfortable working at sink. I plan to replace this brand new faucet and am searching for a pull down with a longer spout reach. Any faucet suggestions would be appreciated.

BTW, I LOVE my Cafe Brown Blanco Siligranit sink!! Would never go back to SS.

Fori is not pleased

I'm short and have in the past replaced stubby faucets with a double jointed (and extra long) one from Chicago Faucets (not a pulldown) and more recently with a Hansgrohe Allegro Pro that has a nice pulldown and is pretty awesome in a War of the Worlds kind of way. Some of the faucet websites have pretty good search engines that can help you narrow them down.

Also check the kitchen forum if you haven't!

As for instance, here. Will 48" do?
