If you’re anything like me over the past several months, you’ve been running around your house looking for “the next big project” to tackle. It’s amazing how being at home so much really highlights the areas where we can add a little extra love, doesn’t it? We moved into our current home six months ago and although it’s only 7 years old, I’ve definitely found projects to keep me busy!
When Pfister reached out to me to discuss a potential faucet partnership, I knew it was a perfect fit. Admittedly, our kitchen prior to move-in was a dream for what we typically find in our price range here in Southern California. I didn’t actually notice the faucet until after spending months cooking and cleaning here every day. When I told my husband we’d be replacing the faucet, he was even more excited and immediately signed himself up for the installation!

The biggest challenge with our old faucet was that it was low arc. Getting a pasta pot or really any pan underneath it was frustrating. Additionally, the arc aimed toward the front of the sink – which meant we’d get sprayed if we weren’t extra careful. Needless to say, it left room for improvement.

Even though the original faucet was only 7 years old, already the pulldown sprayer component no longer settled all the way back to where it belonged after use. Of course that led to a good amount of residue built up. The faucet itself had relatively low side to side mobility and somehow always felt “stuck” when we tried to move it.
Lastly, you know as a designer I didn’t love that the faucet and soap dispenser finishes didn’t match the instant hot water dispenser installed right between them. And in viewing the entire space as a whole, I could see the kitchen was just calling for a faucet that fit the space in a grander, more stylish way. In all, it was time to make a switch.
