Some Granite Countertop Faucet Choices

Selecting the best faucet for granite countertops, consider that granite countertop faucets are constructed the same as faucets for other countertop materials.

However, the mounting of a faucet in granite is different for both aesthetic and functional reasons.  Typically, you will not find a wide flange to cover industry standard holes in sink rims.

With stone tops, properly sized mounting holes are bored into the stone when the tops are fabricated or during installation.

What you will find with faucets made for granite counters, a higher quality faucet commensurate with the investment in granite countertops.  Some faucets such as the Pekoe Semi-Professional are designed for serious cooks.  Faucets like this can bring professional-level functionality and style to your kitchen.  Many faucets for granite have pull-down sprayers that allow the spray heads to effortlessly reach where you need them.
