Wall mount faucet for a kitchen sink from Strom Plumbing

wall mount faucetIf you have a farmhouse kitchen sink — and need a wall mount faucet — check out this design from Strom Plumbing. This is the most handsome wall mount faucet that I have ever seen.

I’ve written about wall mount faucets from Strom before. I like those, sure, but this new design is not so “rounded” as others, there is no embellishment, no frou frou. Instead, this design has a chunky, utilitarian, almost industrial style — better for a mid century kitchen sink, I think. Notice the use of the “hex” shape and hard contoured edges thoughout the design. And of course, it’s always cool to have the soap dish attachment — what a terrific retro detail.

This kitchen faucet has hunka hunka heft, much like the Mississippi bathroom faucet that I love – also made by Strom Plumbing. I used the Mississippi faucet in two of my bathrooms. They were not inexpensive — but they seem to be terrific quality. I always like a kitchen and bathroom faucet with good “hand feel” — lots of “heft” when you touch them. The Mississippi bathroom faucets certainly have delivered. Note, several readers have pointed out that the smaller, 4″ Mississippi is no longer offered. Drats. I need to do more research on 4″ faucets, although we do have a few.

Where to see this Strom wall mount faucet

As you can see, you can get this Strom kitchen faucet as either deck- or wall mounted faucet, on an 8-inch spread. You can see it on page 105 of the Strom Plumbing Sign of the Crab catalog. Note, Strom is a wholesaler — you cannot buy from them. If want to hunt this design online, plug the model number into the Google and go from there.

    I agree, this is a beautiful faucet. Love the soap dish. We installed one about 15 years ago from Chicago Faucet for a laundry tub in a friend’s home. I remember we had one in a house we rented when I was a child. We also had a wooden ironing board that came out of the wall and a stove so high off the ground that you could sit underneath it. House might have been built in the 20′s or so, not sure.
    Kohler and some others make wall faucets too, but not as good looking as this one.

    I need one of these – the set I have I can’t find replacement washers for and the plating is failing. @Maude – you can find nice ceramic soap holders with a drain on the front so they don’t get gross. I use mine just for the sponge, anyway.

    Those soap dishes usually lift off, making it easy to let the soap soak off every once in awhile. Still, when we had one I found it more ergo to have the soap off to the side in a dish; then we switched to liquid soap anyhow. I love the look of this faucet. If you already have a wall-mount, check the spread before you buy anything to replace it. Many of them have an adjustable spread, but this one pictured does not.

    I absolutely adore the look of these faucets but couldn’t figure out how to make it work in our kitchen … the lengths the spout came in seemed to be way too short or ridiculously long. Definitely take measurements to make sure they’ll work for you.

    I think the soap dish is generally used for situations where you have no sink edge on which to set your soap–because the water runs into a utility sink or trough. I had one on the faucet for the old utility sink in the basement of my last house, and I’ve seen them in campground bathhouses. Yes, most of the ones I see are scummy with flaky finish, but on the other hand, they are really handy when there’s no where else to put your soap. I think that in a situation where one wasn’t necessary, it would strike me as too rustic and actually less utilitarian than other soap location options. But in situations where one is necessary, it’s a good solution.

    I am in the process of my own kitchen renovation, the star of which will be a chrome top 6 burner wedgewood stove with glass doors (I am restoring it myself). I just noticed this faucet and love the look but I too wonder if the spout is a little too short. I think the overall reach is 8″ if I understand correctly and would prefer a 10 or 12″ overall reach.

    Anyhoo, I have visited this site often for ideas, commentary, photos, etc. . . . thanks!

    Hello again all,
    It just occurred to me that it is probably possible to adjust the overall reach by simply extending the length of the hot and cold lines as they come out of the wall and meet the faucet. Perhaps that is how one dealt with this problem in the past. . . duh!!

    Just a tip for anyone planning on using a fixture like this in a new kitchen renovation…have the fixture on site during the plumbing rough in phase. These require IPS rough in’s and require quite exact measurements, especially if you’re using them in a wall mount sink. We didn’t know this and now its requiring a lot more work to get this installed.

        I was planning on doing that with the plumber once I have all the framing in place. There is a little more effort required to install these and one must allow for an access panel in the back of the sink base cabinet in the event that a repair is needed. I prefer the elegant simplicity of the wall mount installation and the practicality of not having to wipe around penetrations in the countertop!
