Product Details for the Kohler K-6227-C11-CP in Polished Chrome

Karbon™ Articulating Kitchen Faucet

The Karbon Articulating Kitchen Faucet takes kitchen faucet functionality to a completely new level. Providing all the functionality of a Pulldown or Pullout faucet, Karbon makes the next evolutionary step by allowing you position water flow exactly where you need it and then holds that position, giving the you the freedom to use both hands to complete the task at hand. Intelligently engineered to hold any pose for hands-free operation, Karbon allows you to streamline your work surfaces and workflow. You can extend the faucet fully to fill large pots, lower it into the sink for food preparation and cleanup, fold it compactly out of the way when not in use, or position it anywhere in between. With every pose, the Karbon articulating faucet announces its presence with unprecedented efficiency and a uniquely modern design. Karbon creates a completely different experience with water at the sink.

  • Unique contemporary styling that is both intriguing and easy to clean and maintain
  • Articulating design provides task configurable functionality allowing you to position the spray deep into the bowl or offer up to 18" clearance for filling even the largest vase. Faucet reach is also variable from less than 2" to over 13".
  • Unique metal and carbon fiber construction delivers rugged reliability and strength while five patented pivot points maximizes maneuverability to any angle, orientation or position either inside or outside the sink
  • Integral sprayhead provides both laminar flow and spray functions at the touch of a button for both filling and cleaning/rinsing functionality
  • ''In the deck'' joystick valving is simple in form but strong in function, providing precise temperature and flow adjustment while maintaining a low profile that is visually stunning
  • Utilizes Kohler installation ring and flexible inlet connections for simplicity of installation
  • ADA compliant lever handle
  • KOHLER finishes resist corrosion and tarnishing, exceeding industry durability standards over two times
  • Kohler ceramic disk valves exceed industry longevity standards by over two times, ensuring durable performance for life

Kohler K-6227 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality with looks Great faucet. Used in our new construction home as an island faucet. All our guests rave about it and it's one of the first things they notice in the kitchen area. Sprayer function is nice and once you get a hang of how to angle/articulate it you won't miss a hand sprayer. The liitle rubber button to switch water patterns is flimsy and has fallen off but a dab of super glue fixed that. Still, on a $600 faucet I would like to see better. One note, the pattern will only change back to a regular stream AFTER you shut it off and back on again. Also, the handle as a deck mount requires an especially large hole in your counter top. Our granite guys had no trouble once they knew how big it had to be but just make sure this is accounted for, especially if you are managing your build/remodel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not practical I was exited to install and use this faucet. It is indeed very cool looking. But the flow is way too weak. When you press on the spray option, the water flow is not strong enough to have a proper spay. I have another faucet in the same kitchen which works just fine with a very strong flow (another Kholer). But I am very dissapointed with the Karbon and I would NOT recommend it at all. Sorry Kholer. I love all of the many other Kholer products I bought in the same project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! I have a pair of these with the 45" Stages sink and I cannot believe their versatility. Not only do they look dramatic and sculptural, but they are so flexible. I have had mine for 2 years and they have been perfect - but even if one died tomorrow, I would not hesitate to replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great looking and effective faucet. I looked at a lot of faucets before I chose this one. I hate the pull out hose types so when I found the Karbon-Articulating faucet by Koler I knew immediately I wanted it. Then I had to convince myself I could afford it. It is everything and more that I was looking for. It can be center stage as a piece of art or I can fold it away so you hardly see it. I am a foodie and cook and have worked in many professional and home kitchen using many different faucets. I love the fact that I can put the water where I want it (i.e., right over the garbage disposal) for maximum flushing or use the spray mode and clean the large farm sink I have in seconds... totally totally love it...if you can afford it - definitely buy it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice Watch the video on Kohler's website. ..it is a very accurate representation. The only problem with the product is we can't keep anyone who visits to keep their hands off of it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This faucet is the greatest! Absolutely love this kitchen faucet. It is very functional, absolutely beautiful and a real conversation piece. The articulating design makes great sense, as it covers a (smaller) double sink and reaches to the countertop for filling pots, etc. Not a single problem since we installed it almost 18 months ago. This was part of an entire kitchen makeover, and it really has made a difference.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Form without function. This faucet is very sharp - a definite showpiece - it's the first thing people comment on when entering my new kitchen. Sadly, it's all style and no substance. It has a VERY low pressure stream, and the spray option doesn't even approach the pressure of a normal faucet's flow. It makes clean up more of a chore than ever. All very frustrating, since you don't know how badly it's going to perform until you've already drilled the over-sized holes in your new counter to install it. As soon as I find something to replace it and deal with the holes... it will be history. I would absolutely not recommend it and have steered a few clients away from it already.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cool but Loaded with Problems I purchased this faucet back in late 2009 and it has been installed in my newly remodeled kitchen for nearly two years now. So I have had much time to formulate an opinion on how this faucets functions and holds up over time. My thoughts with installing this faucet were that it was both incredibly functional and for the price tag and should hold up very well over time. However, within the past two years I have had two separate problems with this faucet. Firstly after only about three months of use the connection joint that joins the carbon articulating neck to the shaft of the faucet came loose (this was just from day to day use as we weren't people to mess with the faucet too much). We had to contact Kohler for a replacement part for this. Yesterday when I went to turn the faucet from stream to spray the button on the back of the faucet section broke, which means I'll have to be making yet another call to Kohler. I know that this problem is not unique to me as I've read about this issue on other sites. At this point until we get a replacement part we have to leave the faucet on stream otherwise we can't turn off the spray function. One thing to be aware of before purchasing this faucet is that the hole that must be drilled for the control mechanism is much wider than the standard hole for faucets. So make sure to communicate this to your counter installer since we had to have ours come back out to drill a larger hole. I still want to love this faucet since it is so functional and beautiful but with so many problems along with the cost I'm a bit remorseful. Conclusion: its a gorgeous faucet when it works but its just not worth the hassle.

The Kohler K-6227 would work with the Karbon Faucet. The sink does not have any pre drilled holes so you would need to have your contractor cut the holes into your counter top if you want to use this faucet with the sink. If you are unable to add holes to your counter then I would recomend a sink with 2 faucet holes. I will send you a quote with some options for you.
