Delta Faucets

When it comes to updating your kitchen, sometimes a drastic and very expensive overhaul isn’t necessary. With a couple of simple renovations, you can really make your kitchen shine. One such change you can make is with new Delta faucets. A few months ago, we chose the Delta Orleans Two Handle Kitchen Faucet With Spray for our kitchen. Choosing this faucet proved to be extremely difficult, since there are so many types of faucets available. Yet for me, it came down to the fact that I wanted two features in a faucet, which I didn’t previously have. One, I wanted a taller arc so that large pots and buckets could easily fit underneath. As well, I wanted a side sprayer. There are pull out sprayers and side sprayers, yet having used both these kind previously at work, I knew I preferred a side sprayer. I chose the Chrome finish, yet there is also the option of the Brilliance Stainless finish.

I know when I chose this Delta faucet, that we would need a new kitchen sink as ours didn’t have the 3rd hole for the side sprayer. Yet, we needed a new sink anyway, ours was very scratched and dated. So, I did what any girl would do when the Delta faucet came, “Hunny, take these measurements and get a new sink, please?” My husband loves to shop at our local hardware store, so he basically skipped out the door happily. Yet, he decided that this brilliant Delta Faucet needed a better place to call home that a replacement steel sink. Hubby sure surprised me by coming home with a gorgeous granite sink! Once installed our new sink and Delta faucet looks like a million bucks.

I cannot believe what a small change did for our entire kitchen! If I had known that it would look this great, I would have gotten this faucet long ago. And, a poor choice I didn’t make – this faucet is a dream! Like I thought, I adore the tall arc, it gives me so much room. I use the side sprayer all the time, it has excellent reach and is really powerful at knocking off sticking food. The design of the handles is so elegant! My space looks so much better {agreed?}, I’m considering the Orleans collection of bathroom faucets and shower accessories now! I think Delta’s tagline is bang-on: ‘See What Delta Can Do!

Delta is a brand of familiarity, fpr over 50 years they have been leaders in impeccable quality and design. It’s become an old tale that household items don’t make a good gift – yet I must disagree. Since becoming a homeowner, I get giddy over home products. Personally I love creating a beautiful home for my loved ones!

The Delta Orleans Two Handle Kitchen Faucet With Spray has an ARV of $299.85, and can be purchased online or in select kitchen supply stores.

  1. I know Doris! I had no idea what a difference that would make!
    And, though I didn’t install it myself, for fear that I would flood my house – I watched and I bet I could do it next time.

    Also, I seen the rush of readers come to this post as soon as I published, hopefully I can bring you a giveaway sometime!!

    Thanks for commenting!
