Help with Faucet Choice for Soapstone

Posted by hunterdonnj (My Page) on

Hi there. I just finalized a soapstone countertop and sink order that will sit on Shiloh shaker style platinum color cabs in a casual farmhouse style setting. But I cannot settle on a faucet. I want a pulldown. The sink will be pretty large, as big as they can fit in a 30" sink cabinet. I think it's very hard to change out the faucet once it's in there, so I am looking for something that will last. Have a Kohler Simplice in the old setup, but we've had to replace the head 1x in the 2 years we have had it (but otherwise great). Hoping for better. Many thanks for any suggestions or success stories!

Waterston's PLP or gantry or,best, gantry+articulating arm? These are all pretty pricey choices--but they should last.

I should have mentioned budget! I need to stay under $500. I love the waterstone, just beautiful and I don't dare go see one in person for fear or changing my mind on budget.

Can you post how the sink and counter are related to each other? It is hard to visualize what kind of faucet without the layout.

How weird.
You know how you'll say a word that's not necessarily in my volcabulary and the TV or radio will say it?

I am watching I Hate My Kitchen.
Just as I was reading this, they installed soapstone countertops and said, "Perfect for rolling out your dough."

Oh, my!

Actually a faucet is one of the easier kitchen items to change out. (Compared to counters, cabinets, floors, etc.). Suggest you find a Moen or Delta pull-down that you like and go with that. Both are reliable brands, they stand behind their products, and will work with your budget. If you find a few styles you like, share that info here and I'm sure you'll get plenty of help making the selection.

Ended up with the Moen 7565ss over a similar looking hansgrohe after browsing a well stocked Ferguson showroom that pretty much had everything out on display. Thx for the input. The Moen felt and looked great.
