Kitchen faucet: durable ORB finish?
Before I knew about the GW forums, about 5 years ago, I remodeled my kitchen. The new faucet we installed then is leaking badly and will have to be replaced. Even apart from that, the finish blistered and peeled. It cost over $200, too, so is really annoying. I don't want to have another faucet disappointment, so I'm researching here first. The rest of the metal finishes in the kitchen are oil rubbed bronze.
I am looking for a single lever, somewhat high neck faucet, with side spray. Not the kind where you pull the head out. I am also not able to afford a high end model: under $250 is all I can do, especially since the faucet I bought for the remodel turned out to be such a lemon.
Considering the heavy use a kitchen faucet gets, is there a brand that makes an ORB fixture where both the finish and the faucet itself are durable?
