Kitchen Faucet & Installing a Pot Filler
When designing our kitchen, I knew we needed a gorgeous faucet to be the centerpiece of our island. I also really wanted to also incorporate a pot filler into the design.
We selected the (affiliate links provided for convenience) Delta Cassidy Single-Handle Pull-Out Sprayer Kitchen Faucet, and it is gorgeous. The kitchen faucet is sophisticated and a stunning champaign bronze color.
The Delta Cassidy is timeless and traditional. The pull-down sprayer features MagnaTite docking which keeps the wand firmly in place with a powerful integrated magnet, so it stays docked when not in use.
The 2-function wand operates in stream or spray mode.
The Delta Traditional Wall-Mounted Pot Filler is everything (kitchen) dreams are made of. It can be used to quickly and easily fill pots without having to walk from the sink to the stove.
I had dreamed about a pot filler for a LONG time, and I was thrilled when it worked out to add one into the remodel plans. However, when you DIY a kitchen, installing a pot filler can have its challenges.
The wall was already tiled where the pot filler would be installed – it was one of the only things from the previous kitchen we saved.
My husband began installation by drilling a hole using a tile drill bit.
The pot filler required four screws for it to be mounted, so we marked where those screws would be.
And the holes were drilled – again with a special (smaller) tile drill bit.
Because of the already tiled wall, we went inside from the back side of the wall. Luckily the other side of the wall happens to be in a hallway closet.
A block of wood was added to mount the pot filler to since it fell in-between the studs (and we didn’t want all of the weight from the pot filler hanging on the tile/drywall).
The (cold) water line was run from the crawl space below, the wall was closed up and our pot filler was installed!
