Seeking Commercial-Style Kitchen Faucet

Ever since I had the chance to help out in a commercial kitchen, I’ve wanted my own commercial-style faucet. Once you’ve done dishes with the suspended sprayer, super-hot water, and excellent water pressure, nothing compares. Too late in the kitchen design process, I realized that those faucets require more vertical space than the typical 18” between counter and cabinet. Instead, they needed upwards of 25-30”.

In the interest of coming as close as possible to the efficient cleaning and functional appearance of a commercial-style faucet while remaining within our space and budget constraints, I chose the Glacier Bay 410 Pull-down faucet from Home Depot.

See Remodelista’s “10 Easy Pieces” for a great collection of commercial-style faucets.

Besides Home Depot, there are lots of similar choices at eFaucets or Home Click.
