Now the kitchen faucet?!


From the other posts tonight I found out that the standard kitchen faucet does not come with simple side sprayer!

It looks like I will have to ask the SR about this since I did not realize there was no sprayer at all.  Here I am again looking at different Moen faucet models :-\

The standard faucet model is the Moen 67425:

The one that I will ask them about is the Moen 7430 to see if they are willing to replace the standard (same thing but with a sprayer):

Price difference is $29.20 MSRP on the Moen site.

If they don't like the separation of the sprayer then there is also the Moen 7434 that has the sprayer built into the base (same price difference of $29.20):

  1. Good luck with that! The one we upgraded too has the pullout sprayer built into the actual faucet, so it's all one piece.

  2. I think they should accommodate this request since its a simple switch. We upgraded ours with the pullout spray built in faucet just like CMM. My husband loves the sprayer. Good Luck!

  3. I updated the post to include an additional link to a model that includes the sprayer on the base of the faucet.

  4. What about one with the sprayer as part of the faucet? ;)

    1. LOL, I am inching closer to it! I am hoping I can spend just $30 to get a sprayer. Otherwise I will just hold off and deal with it likely :-)

  6. Your best chance is probably the one with the sprayer built into the base as the standard sinks (if you are getting the stainless steel) do not have the hole for the sprayer. Our original plan was to just get the standard faucet and replace it with a pullout sprayer faucet after closing. However, the price Ryan was charging for the faucet was about the same or a little less than I was finding that faucet online and that included the install, so we went with the upgrade.

  7. Side Note: If you get granite countertops they will drill 2 small holes, 1 on each side of the main hole for the faucet. This gets covered with trim with the stock faucet, but exposed with most replacement faucets. SR recommended not having them put the holes and just secure the trip with clear silicone, which the PM agreed to do. Will eventually unglue, but if we still have that faucet we can just re-apply.

    Good thing to bring up at the Pre-Con meeting.

    1. Also, with the separate sprayer there is an additional cost for the countertops. 1 more hole for granite guys to drill. I assume there is a cost associated with non-granite also. So that $30 difference will probably be $100 when all said and done.

  8. You can find a better quality and nicer looking faucet for less than what RH is charging for the upgtade. We found a spot resistant high arc faucet with pull down sprayer that we plan to install upon closing. The drawback is that you will need to install on your own, but if you're even a little handy it should be no biggie.

  9. We are doing the same as JBY. The price of nicer pull out sprayer faucets are the same as the upgrade (we found some with much better reviews for a little cheaper). We plan on just installing it ourselves afterward. It's annoying that the base model is without a sprayer...I didn't even realize any faucets for the kitchen were like that until they told us!

  10. You're best best is to stop figuring out how to dress up a turd. The standard faucet (we have) is ... standard. We meant to close on house and immediately upgrade faucet and sink. Although that has been pushed back, we still have the intent. And before you go with the pull out faucet sprayer deal, try one. My work put one in and I don't like it a bit.

    1. Ha, eloquently put there :-)

      I do not want to spend too much on it, just want to know what my options are.

    2. haha. I am rarely accused of being soft spoken.

  11. We went with the pull out, only because my cousin had already built across the street and I had used hers a lot and love it. But... if my husband was the handy type I would have taken the standard thing and had him replace it with what I really wanted. It's stupid to me that Ryan offers the kitchen cabinet hardware, whole house hardware, and plumbing in oil rubbed bronze but offers no oil rubbed bronze for the kitchen sink. If I win a kitchen makeover the first thing on my list is a farmhouse apron sink with a gorgeous oil rubbed bronze faucet.

  12. Thanks for all the feedback everyone. I asked them today if I can get the one with the sprayer on the the base (Moen 7434). It uses the the same installation holes as the standard faucet so that should increase my odds.
