There’s still so much to share with you about our kitchen remodel, even if it hasn’t been moving right along as we’d hoped. Little has changed since late May, but we’re living in our kitchen and loving it! I’m excited to share a little about our unlacquered brass kitchen faucet with you today.

First, I wanted to mention that when we started planning our kitchen remodel, Chris and I decided we would not have any element of the kitchen sponsored. I wanted it to be 100% authentic to our design/taste without even the slightest of compromise. Also, to share a kitchen with a real budget with you.

As with any project, we still had to make a few compromises along the way. One was our unlacquered brass kitchen faucet. I have long loved this Barber Wilson’s faucet or this Perrin & Rowe bridge faucet, but after a lot of debate, we decided on the Newport Brass Chesterfield Kitchen Faucet with Sidespray.

With our farmhouse sink, it’s almost a necessity to encourage bits of food down the drain. It has made cleaning the farmhouse sink a breeze.

An unlacquered brass kitchen faucet is timeless and classic no matter which you select. Do you love a sprayer as much as we do?
