How far should the lavatory faucet reach on a 19" x 15" lavatory sink?
October 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi! I'm trying to find the right sized spout for my new Kohler Caxton undermount sink. The bowl is 19 " x 15". I like the higher gooseneck spouts but am concerned with splashing if the spout is too high above the bottom of the bowl, and perhaps banging my forehead on it when I'm bending over the sink. The bowl will be 5 1/2 " deep from the countertop to the drain. Also, how far should the spout reach into the bowl for a lavatory sink? I am considering a faucet that is 4" high and reaches 5 1/4 " into the bowl. and one that is 6" high and reaches 5 1/4 into the bowl, so either faucet will only extend about 4" into the sink Which would work best, or should I look for one that reaches farther towards the center of the bowl?

I suggest that you get advice from your local Kohler retailer.

I my opinion the first spout is to low. I think you would be fine with the second one.

I like the higher faucet. It is easier to wash your hands, face and brush your teeth without trying to get under the lower spout. All of mine are as high as I can find now.
