Kitchen Faucet Before & After

A while back we were debating what kind of faucet to install in the kitchen and had toyed with the idea of maybe getting an industrial style spray arm one (you can read the whole post here).  For me it was between that and a more elegant, like this Kingston Brass faucet on Amazon.

I love the pretty shaped and the raised connection between the handles and the faucet, which give this a vintage look.  But in the end I decided we needed to stick with one that would fit with the single hole in our granite (no idea how much it would've cost to drill more holes...), so we crossed this one off the list.  And I'm glad we did, since we couldn't be happier with our huge industrial, camp style monster of a faucet.  It is SO much fun to use, which truly makes doing dishes less of a chore, and I love how I can bump the water on and off with an elbow when my hands are covered in raw chicken.  It comes with both the long sprayer on springs and a regular faucet extension for convenience, and it saves money when you're washing pots and pans because the water turns off between sprays when you don't need it, unlike with a regular style faucet.  I don't know why more people don't have these!

Here's a little before and after.

Happy Monday,


p.s. I have to admit, I was pretty excited the other day when I saw Brad Pitt's character using a faucet very similar to ours in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. The house in that movie was amazing!  If it's good enough for Brad & Angelina...


  1. Your faucet looks so modern! And indeed, Brad and Angelina’s house in the movie was so beautiful! Too bad they just wrecked it. No wonder why that one that looks a lot like yours was in that house; it’s because they both look so cool!

  2. Your sink looks very nice after you changed the faucet. I think more households are already using that faucet; it just so happened that you don’t know those people. Hehe, just kidding. By the way, I hope you have constant plumbing maintenance for your sink so that the beauty of the faucet will be retained. It’s not advisable to have a pretty faucet that has a lot of leaks in its pipes.

  3. It is indeed a wonderful for you to consider as your daily usage. You will love to enjoy the Kitchen faucet from then on. It will bring you an all new feeling. As can see that Antique brass faucet flow decentralizes or sprayed, just spin the button on the head.
