Kitchen Makeover Day 6: Sink and Faucet

This is the last day of “Kitchen Makeover Week.” Although it’s been fun to share my kitchen with you, I’m ready to start cooking up a storm. But before we move on, let me show you something really cool!

Last year I had the opportunity to visit Kohler, Wisconsin and tour the Kohler Design Center. The beauty and artistry of Kohler products, as well as the history of the company, makes Kohler a standout in their industry.

Kohler Sensate Faucet on ASpicyPersepctive.com #remodel #renovation #kohler

When we started planning the kitchen renovation, I knew immediately that I wanted a touchless faucet.

Kohler makes the most amazing new product, the Sensate Faucet. You don’t even have to bump it. You simply wave your grimy hands under the faucet and voila! The water magically comes on.

Like this….

No longer will I try to turn the handle with my elbow in order not to touch it with sticky hands.

Overall, it’s the thing the rest of the family is most excited about it our new kitchen. Every time a friend stops by to see the remodel, one of the kids runs over to the sink and says, “Watch This!!”

Kohler Sensate Faucet and Riverby Sink

We paired our new faucet with the Riverby Sink. The Riverby is one of Kohler’s newest cast iron sinks and happens to come in an array of fun colors… if you are more adventurous than I am.

Thanks Kohler for making such innovative products.

This sink has alleviated one of life’s daily annoyances and I am crazy over it!

  8. Hey Sommer,
    The article is really informative and the photos are convenient for those who are planning to adorn their kitchen ensuring adequate opportunities. I have never used Kohler products but reading this I logged on the link and the article ‘Designed to be designed’ gave more options to choose spout, handle and finish. However, if you prefer pedestal sink, this site might be helpful. Thanks.

  10. the Kohler is really wonderful kitchen faucet. It’s my one of the best choices. I’m currently using in my Kitchen.

  11. Kohler is one of good company for a faucet. But I think Moen is the best brand for touchless kitchen faucets. It’s also suitable for who has the child.

  21. May I ask what model of sink rack you have there? I can’t seem to find a two-piece rack for the Riverby sink, only the left side!

    I love your choices–the sink, the faucet…and that backsplash is to die for!

    • Hi Andrea,

  32. I love your kitchen very much. ı think I will remodel my kitchen again.  I have Kohler Bellera Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet. I love this kitchen faucet. I have only had it for a couple weeks now but the pull down mechanism seems like excellent quality. I love that when you switch the water to spray it is a flat spray instead of a round spray. Makes it more efficient at rinsing dishes and the sink.

  33. Love the new kitchen. What color did you use on the walls? It’s beautiful.

  34. That faucet is amazing

  35. great kitchen!!

  44. Thanks for sharing your KItchen MakeOver. The end result is fantastic! Currently I’m using a Delta pull-down faucet in my kitchen but after seeing your touchless faucet in action I’m pretty sure this will be my next kitchen faucet.

  45. In these times of equality we men are often found at the sink or elsewhere in the kitchen. I for one think that the sink and I am sure the rest of the kitchen in the photographs shown would be a pleasure to work in!
