I love kitchens. I don’t know what it is about them, but I love great kitchens. It’s not because I’m some wunder-chef (far from it!). I just love the ambience of a good kitchen. Whenever you go to a party in someone’s home, isn’t that where people congregate? Or just on a daily basis, think about how much time we spend in our kitchens.

But there’s one thing in particular that I really appreciate within a kitchen and that’s the faucet. I have this thing with faucets. Here’s my favorite:

Dornbracht Kitchen Faucet with Sprayer

It’s made by a company called Dornbracht. You just have to feel this faucet in your hands. It’s extraordinary. Someone once told me that they’re the company that all the other faucet companies copy. This one (pictured above), the Tara Classic, won a couple of awards for design and quality excellence.

They also do faucets for bathrooms.

Dornbracht Bathroom Faucet

Speaking of bathrooms, I have the same attraction to faucets in bathrooms, particularly in restaurants. If the bathrooms have a great faucet, I’ll leave with a smile on my face. They can be so cool, you know? Sometimes substantial and strong, stylish and gorgeous.

Aaaah, there’s just nothing like a good faucet.

  1. There’s nothing that says fame than having a faucet named for you… or it could be the world telling me I’m a ‘drip.’ =)

    [Yeah! That’s right, Tara. And I can’t think of a better faucet (not at all telling you’re a drip).

  2. We just reno’d our kitchen and I thought that was the faucet we chose (on the right)… but we have a Blanco, similar look in polished nickel. We LOVE it!
    It’s funny, I knew we had a crap kitchen before, but after we finally got it reno’d I don’t know how we could stand the old one for as long as we did (ie. 7 years!) .
    Bathroom is next … that faucet looks incredible.

  3. Yay! A fellow faucet enthusiast! I love the bathroom faucet you posted. Those waterfall-type ones are so cool. 😀

    [I agree, Pete. The waterfall type faucets are my ideal for the bathroom. Fabulous stuff. I don’t think they made ’em this way twenty years ago…

  6. You are right. That top faucet is cool. It reminds me of the kind that had at a restaurant I worked at in college. How perfect. I so want to upgrade my kitchen!
