I am considering buying a Grohe faucet for my kitchen but noticed where they recommend a 6" clearance between the back edge of the sink and the backsplash. I'm not sure that I will have that much room, but I am wondering why it would take so much room. It is the Ladylux plus model 33759KD0. Has anyone installed one of these without the recommended 6" countertop space between sink and wall?

Thanks in advance,

Interesting post, v. We, too, are interested in a Grohe (thanks to my wife, who for whatever reason just HAS to have one ). In fact I had a post recently asking folks' recommendations on them.

Was thinking, is there ANYBODY out there that even HAS 6" clearance? That itself has to be rather rare! I've never even heard of such a thing. I mean, countertops are 24" deep and the sink takes up most of that. So I'm at a loss.

I can't answer your question, unfortunately, but would also be interested in any replies.

I guess the worst thing that happens....we don't get the Grohe--and we end up saving a couple hundred dollars

As far as price goes, my local retailer quoted $600 price range, but I found it for $358 at I'm not familiar with the site and I have been trying to find people who have ordered from them to see if they were satisfied with the shipment time and service. They have a return policy that looks like you can return the faucet for a restocking fee if you can't use it once you have it. The original shipping is free for any order over $75 so return shipment and restocking fee is still cheaper than getting it locally.
