Yes, as a matter of fact, I am blogging about the kitchen sink. Midnight approaching and desperate for a topic? Well, yes… but also, I really like this new faucet and think it’s worth writing about.

In fact, this new faucet is so great it makes it feel like we’ve gotten a whole new kitchen. I found dish-doing so novel tonight, I actually enjoyed cleaning up.

Okay.. so here’s the before:


(Boo, hiss, just look at that thing.)

And, ta da, here’s the after:


Slick and shiny and functioning.

The thing to notice about the new faucet is all the space beneath the spout part. Lots of room to maneuver! It makes our sink suddenly feel so much larger and deeper. Also–you can’t tell by looking–the faucet moves effortlessly from one sink to the other.  Just a dainty little swipe of the finger and the nozzle is exactly where you need it to be.  The one we replaced took all your muscle to move it left or right. And the removable spray element stays put; no more of this dangling appendage thing. And Jim also replaced the soap dispenser, so that works like a dream, too, just like it yoosta.

There is just so much to be happy about. We won’t have to move after all.
