Blanco Faucets - Kitchen Sink & Bar Fittings
Company profile and overview
Blanco faucets come in a wide range of styles and are designed to completment the range of kitchen, bar and hospitality sinks manufactured by Blanco America. The German company was founded by Heinrich Blanc in 1925 but only came to the USA in 1987.
Although Blanco specializes in the manufacture of sinks their range of bar and kitchen faucets is made to the same high quality with solid brass construction, ceramic disk cartridges and a limited lifetime warranty. This ensures that you can always get a set matching in both design and durability.
The Madison series is one of the larger and more popular collections of Blanco kitchen faucets because of their highly decorative, ornate design. These two-handled Blanco kitchen faucets would certainly be right at home in kitchens with a classical style and provide a simple but beautiful focal point to any kitchen or bar sink.
The Appleton series on the other hand is more modern in design and with their slender spouts and sleek handles they would be perfect for the modern kitchen. One of the reasons for this collections poularity is the fact that some of the faucets in this range come with subtlety ornate handles. These bring a hint of classical style without sacrificing the smooth lines of modern design.
Blanco faucets also come in a range of one handled and pullout designs as can be found in the Tuscan, Greenbrier, Milano and Purus collections. Blanco faucets and sinks are manufactured for use in residential and commercial kitchens as well as other hospitality purposes such as bars. They also offer accessories to compliment all their sinks with an option for custom design so you can add a little bit of your own personality to your kitchen.
Blanco America pride themselves on their high level of customer service saying on their website, www.blancoamerica.com, that customers will always be able to reach a real person on the phone who can help with technical and product queries. The irony of this statement is that nowhere on the website do they list contact phone numbers, only e-mail addresses. On the positive side, the website does have a good FAQ section as well as sections on installation and where to find the nearest dealer.
