Best GROHE Faucets for the Kitchen

Is your old kitchen faucet ready to take a dive?  Or maybe you’re tired of getting sprayed in the face by your faucet.  Whatever the case may be, it’s time to find a new kitchen faucet that’s perfect for you.

Why Buy GROHE?

Because of their state-of-the-art technologies, GROHE offers kitchen faucets that will complement any décor while they will do wonders for your pocketbook and the eco-system. GROHE kitchen faucets save valuable water since their faucets are set at a lower flow rate than previous models.  They are set at a maximum of 1.75 gallons per minute (GPM).

The flow reduction is hardly noticeable but if you use your kitchen sink a lot, your water bill will show a reduction.  The GROHE kitchen faucets can also save you money on installation costs because of how easy they are to install.

GROHE kitchen faucets are well known for their modern styles. They will provide a welcome solution for when you want to upgrade your kitchen.  In fact, you will be proud of the design as well as the functionality.  Everyone in the household and your guests can rely on GROHE kitchen faucets to be user-friendly and stylish.

What to Consider Before Buying

It may not be wise to just run out and grab the first one you see because not all kitchen faucets are equal.  One of the most important things to consider before buying is what finish you want on your faucet.  Yes, faucets are not all chrome anymore.  They come in bronze, steel black, stainless steel, and what GROHE calls SuperSteel, which is made of solid Grade 304 stainless steel.

 

GROHE invented the technology called StarLight that includes finishes from matte to shiny in several colors. The StarLight faucets will last a lifetime because the surface has been designed to be very resistant to scratches and dirt so your maintenance will be minimal.  Your GROHE faucet will look as good as when you bought it for the lifetime of the faucet.

 

You should consider the GROHE kitchen faucet’s height that are from 6 to 20 inches.  The spout height are from 5 to 12 or more inches.  Then there are different faucet styles—some are straight or “L” shaped, some are curved goosenecks, and some have a commercial look.  Handles come in different shapes such as ones that turn, pull up or have push buttons.  There is even one that has a foot control.

Pull-Out vs. Pull-Down Spray Head

GROHE makes faucet spray heads that both pull-out or pull-down.  If you’re not familiar with them both, here’s some tips.  The pull-out type has a shorter spout than the pull-down type. The pull-down type has a spray hose that is generally shorter than the pull-out type, best for deep sinks, and gets less kinks in the hose.  The longer pull-out hose has less splash, best for double sinks, and best for filling taller pots on the counter top.
