While the list is long, don’t let it overwhelm you. It’s likely that you will immediately rule out a large number of the choices because they are not to your taste. There may even be one that immediately jumps out at you and screams, “Pick me!” Don’t worry if you still find yourself with a whole list of finished that you like, though. There are a few important things to consider as you look at this faucet and more Waterstone kitchen faucets.

A Durability Difference

Generally speaking, the finish of a faucet will fall into one of three categories. It may be a finish that will hold up forever and survive anything; it may be a resilient finish that will hold up against normal use for many years with just basic maintenance, or it may be a finish that requires specific attention and care.

The most durable finishes include Chrome and Stainless Steel. Both options look great and are tough to scratch or blemish. They require only normal cleaning and can survive most standard cleaning products. That’s partially why they are two of the most common finishes you’ll find in kitchens.

If you want a slightly more unique look without sacrificing too much durability, consider any of the Pewter or Nickel finishes along with either Black finish, the Rose, and the Graphite finish They all come with a seven-year warranty and hold up well under normal use. You will want to wipe them down to prevent moisture spots that can become stains. Be sure to choose an appropriate cleaner for these finishes as well.

Most of the copper finishes and a couple of the brass and bronze finishes can also be durable and easy to clean, but the exact kind of finish will make a difference. The Weathered Copper, for example, comes with no warranty and is expected to tarnish and wear over time. Both of Waterstone’s Gold finishes are also expected to go through a deterioration process over time, as well.

Water Filter Options

One of the unique impacts of Waterstone's history is its relationship with water filtration systems. This makes a Waterstone faucet or suite the perfect choice to pair with a reverse osmosis water filter system that can fit under your sink. Waterstone even makes the air gap option for the Annapolis 5600, so that you can easily connect the faucet to your filter.


  • The PLP sprayer will make life easy.
  • Choosing a Waterstone faucet means you’ll get great quality and construction.
  • The Annapolis 5600 with soap/lotion dispenser will give you a kitchen faucet suite that matches perfectly to ensure your kitchen has a cohesive style.
  • Its traditionally detailed design will give your kitchen style an old-world twist.
  • The polished nickel finish comes with a 7-year warranty and is very durable with limited maintenance.


  • The finely carved details of this faucet will stand out as traditional instead of complimenting a contemporary kitchen design.


For those who want to add a reverse osmosis water filtration system to their kitchen sink, Waterstone makes it easy by offering the air gap installation with all of the parts set-up and ready to connect to a filter. The polished nickel finish of the Waterstone 5600-2-PN Annapolis Kitchen Faucet Single Handle with Pull Out Spray, Soap/Lotion Dispenser in Polished Nickel is durable and easy to maintain. Finally, by getting the lotion/soap dispenser as part of the suite, you’ll know that your kitchen has a consistent and unique style.
