Where did you get your Kohler Whitehaven sink?

donaleenNovember 3, 2012

We want a tall apron 36" Kohler Whitehaven in "cane sugar". It looks like the best way to get it is from Build.Com/FaucetDirect.com.

Did anyone get one of these Kohler K-6489 online?

My DH has fallen in love with the color cane sugar. You have to pay a premium for the color.

thanks

Mine, along with my toilets and faucets, came from faucetline.com. They gave me a really good break on shipping when I asked, and called me immediately when things were delayed.

Good luck!

Was going to order our Whitehaven online but found one locally for an even better price - just had to pick it up. We have white, though - I doubt local places would have a variety of colors to choose from in stock. Doesn't hurt to ask!

We got our biscuit 30" locally as well. I was going to order online but my dh called a local supply place and they were willing to get close enough that we had them order it and I picked it up.

My plumber. Less expensive than pricing online at that time.

I have to advocate for the local shops too. While I didn't get any of my kitchen fixtures locally, I have since been getting many of my bathroom supplies and fixtures locally. They are matching the prices I'm finding online, and they are easy to work with. I hate mail returns and I'd much rather drive to the shop to return an item. Plus my plumber has a relationship with the shop too, and he doesn't care if I buy the item or he gets it for me. He lets me choose. I like this flexibility.

Thanks everybody. Sent an email to our plumber to see what he can do. Called Fergusons but they wouldn't consider price matching. Have a call in to a local shop... they say that they can order Kohler but they don't put it in their showroom because Kohler insists that most of their display pieces be Kohler (bad Kohler).

Fergusons prices are ridiculous. I hope the plumber works out for you!

Ferguson's was also barely civil. They told me I shouldn't be allowed to buy from build.com/faucetdirect.com, which are somehow related to them, according to the guy I spoke to at build.com.

I tried Fergusons because it was the one place I found that had a showroom where I could see one. I thought I owed it to them to try and buy there.

But they annoyed me.

I felt the same way!! I tried to do business with them, but they acted like my money was only good if it came from a designer.....sorry! Looking back, I am so thankful there wasn't one other person to let me down, LOL!!

Me too (Ferguson didn't seem to want my business!) I think I looked on Kohler's Web site for local suppliers, and just called a few places. My GC picked it up for me.

I bought mine through a local showroom but they had me pick it up at a distribution center. I paid $669 for the 36" in white. When I went and picked the sink up and from talking to one of the ladies there, I realized I could have just bought the sink directly from them. Since I bought it through the showroom there was a mark up. I still got it for a good price. If you have a Keenan Supply in your area check them out. One of the other things, since they are the distribution center for Kohler they have less of a wait time on the sink. So for instance, when I called two showrooms for pricing and availability they said it would take 4 to 6 weeks to get it. Keenan said, if I changed my mind about the size (36"), it would take about a week. Trucks come to them all the time. I got pricing from them on some faucets and they were a bit lower then the showrooms pricing so I will use them for my faucet.

Springroz, how to you like your faucet? Yours is one of the ones that I am considering and wanted to know how you like it. Are you happy with the spout reach? Thanks!
