New Kitchen Faucet


I am looking for a new kitchen faucet. I do not want a really tall faucet, since I have a smaller kitchen and it would block my window. I do want one tall enough to get tall pots under to wash though.

I am used to the separate spray and extremely good water pressure/flow. I have used faucets with low flow and hate them. I know that most new faucets have 1.5 gpm, but I would like one with a higher gpm or one I could do something to to get better flow/pressure.

All the pull downs seem too tall and too far back in the sink(short spout reach). A lot of the pull outs have a longer reach, but not tall enough(spout to deck) for tall pots. I like the look of some of the faucets with separate spray, particularly the Victorian style, but have heard the water pressure/flow and spray are not as good as a pull out.

I've heard the pull outs(not pull downs) have better water pressure than the ones with side spray, although some people have said they have side spray with really good spray. Most pull outs and ones with side spray have 1.5 gpm. How can a pull out have better pressure/flow if they all have 1.5 gpm? Do pullouts with 1.5 gpm have better pressure than ones with side spray and 1.5 gpm?

I've been looking at Kohler, Delta and Moen since they all seem to have good customer service, easy to get parts should something go wrong and lifetime warranty on parts and finish. I also want a darker bronze finish that will last.
So, I would like a well made faucet around 12"? high overall with at least 8"? spout height for tall pots, longer spout reach(9.5"? or longer), really good water flow/pressure & spray, darker bronze color that should last and good/fast customer service.

I've heard the best faucet will be all brass inside with ceramic disk valve and pvd finish. Unfortunately not in a darker bronze color or with all the things I'm looking for. Am I asking too much? Does nothing exist even close to what I'm looking for?

I also have about 3"- 3 1/2" between back of sink(sink rim) and window to fit a faucet and backsplash, so I have to make sure the faucet will fit on counter behind the sink. I am trying to stay under or around $400.

Can anyone answer my question about the water pressure(pullout vs. side spray) and recommend one or two really good faucets that I would be happy with? I've looked at every faucet out there. Please help!
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks! Kathy

Can anyone suggest a faucet you like that has all or most of what I am looking for? I really need to choose a faucet right away so we can finish our remodel. Any suggestions at all of a faucet someone really likes would be a huge help to narrow it down. Thanks!
