The Kim Six Fix: Replacing the Kitchen Faucet

Replacing the Kitchen Faucet

I'm slowly making progress on my "dream" kitchen. Tiny baby steps

One of the small (but very important) changes I made this week was replacing the kitchen faucet.
Previously we had a brushed nickel single hole faucet that didn't actually work very well.
Not only was the finish coming off,  the spray vs. stream button didn't work and the pull out hose no longer retracted.
It just hung there like a limp noodle.  Not cool.

After pulling out the old one,  I was left with a single hole in the granite.
 This didn't leave me with a lot of options.  I originally wanted this Danze Faucet, but at $400 plus the cost of drilling a second hole in my granite, it wasn't going to happen.

Instead I settled on the Price Pfister Hanover.
This is the same faucet I mentioned in my earlier post.  I liked the more traditional look, dark finish,  one-hole installation, plus it came with a tiny pricetag ($130.) Danze makes a very similar model, but it was nearly triple the price. 

Installation was a breeze, less than 10 minutes and I had a brand new faucet!
One more kitchen project down..  only a few more to go!
