Default Kitchen Faucet Recomendations

So I'm updating my Kitchen, most of my customers want the cheapest one they can find. But I want to put in something a little exotic the usual suspects just aren't doing it for me. Does anyone have any recommendations on brands or advise, open to all 2 cents.

Grohe Ladylux. Good faucets.

Grohe - last of the real brass faucets. Almost everything else is plastic.

I have a new in the box Moen Legend less spray. This in its day was a great faucet. As for today...

Well I like the plain simple look so I suggest to my customers Chicago Faucets. They are nice and clean, I can change the spout to meet their needs if they want higher spouts, and the wrist blade handles are a hit with the elderly.

If they are looking for a clean look then I offer the under mount faucets.

Check with your wholesaler, ask them if they have old stock or display models. Tell them its for yourself and you should get a good deal. As for myself, I have the most basic fixtures in my house and non match.

I've installed a bunch of Signature Hardware stuff and I really like it all, except for their shower necks. They have real nice fit and finish and a good solid feel to them. They also have a lot of different and some odd styles to maybe satisfy your exotic need. They would get my first vote.

I installed this one recently, but didn't get pics in the house. I was digging it because it reminds me of plumbing parts. You should check out their site, their stuff isn't that expensive either. The pic was taken from the Signature Hardware site.

I haven't installed many Grohe faucets, but many shower systems and that stuff has been real nice quality, so I would second the vote for Grohe.

I've also been very pleased with the Kraus faucets I have installed.

Thanks for the leads guys. I did talk with one of my suppliers, he always bends over backwards to help me out so when I can, like in this situation I won't go anywhere else and I'll pay what he asks. These guys deal only to contractors and mostly on the new construction side, they really only stock the usual suspects. But based on everyone's insight he is point to get me a schedule on the Grohe and Kraus fixtures I liked. But I'm going to look into that Signature never seen there stuff and that pic you posted not something I think I could get my wife to agree too but I've done a few remodels the customer would have died for that fixture with the exposed black pipe and barn door in style that fixture would have fit right in. I also appreciate the insight on the Chicago stuff didn't find anything in my style but I can see what you mean about the clean, simpleness to it. Thank you for everyone's input!
