Considerations for Pot Filler Faucet Placement

Pot Filler Placement above Stove

We like Wolf / Sub Zero appliances and they have helpful information on their website. Homeowners who are undertaking a kitchen remodel often ask us about pot filler faucets. While Wolf doesn’t have specific location recommendations, here are some of the considerations we feel are important:

  • Place the pot filler to the left or right of the cooking surface so you don’t have to reach over the cooking surface to use the faucet. If you place the pot filler above the cooking surface, it can get hot from burners or a large pot.
  • Place the pot filler so it can access the largest burner if you aren’t able to place it in a location to access all burners
  • Place the pot filler high enough to fill the largest pot. If your largest pot is only used a couple times a year, you might find it better to place it lower.
  • Check with your faucet manufacturer for placement suggestions to prevent damage.

Whatever you decide, all local building codes should be followed. If you’d like to see more pictures of the beautiful kitchen featured in this post, visit our portfolio.
