Best Faucet For Granite Countertops


How to make a great faucet

 

 

 

 

 

 

Selecting the best faucet for granite countertops, consider that granite countertop faucets are constructed the same as faucets for other countertop materials.

However, the mounting of a faucet in granite is different for both aesthetic and functional reasons.  Typically, you will not find a wide flange to cover industry standard holes in sink rims.

With stone tops, properly sized mounting holes are bored into the stone when the tops are fabricated or during installation.

What you will find with faucets made for granite counters, a higher quality faucet commensurate with the investment in granite countertops.  Some faucets such as the Pekoe Semi-Professional are designed for serious cooks.  Faucets like this can bring professional-level functionality and style to your kitchen.  Many faucets for granite have pull-down sprayers that allow the spray heads to effortlessly reach where you need them.

Drip Free Faucets

Faucets featuring ceramic disc valves will ensure drip-free performance. These valves are maintenance free and provide smooth handle control, even in extreme temperatures or hard-water conditions. For some faucets, these valves are designed to last over one million on/off cycles without failure!

Hands Free Faucets

MotionSense technology from Moen allows for kitchen faucets that turn on and off with a wave of the hand.  Supposedly, you get greater speed and efficiency in your kitchen with this feature.
