Common Features Of Delta Ashton And Leland Kitchen Faucets
Delta Ashton kitchen faucet is one of the most popular and in demand kitchen faucets of Delta. But it competes heavily with Delta Leland and at times even loses the battle.
Diamond™ Seal And Magnatite™
Both faucets are equipped with the advanced Delta patented solutions like Diamond™ Seal and Magnatite™. Diamond is the hardest material known so far. In the contemporary Delta faucets, a thin layer of diamond particles gets embedded on the ceramic valve discs thus not only ten-doubling the service longevity but also increasing the leak-proof security of the even so trustworthy ceramic valve discs.
And so very much liked by many – snugly fitting Magnatite™ reinforced spray head dock adds the elegant click in place when the pull-out wand returns after being used. See, there are powerful magnets built right into the wand.
The sprayer sits well even so because the dock is shaped like that, and the metal weight on the hose pulls it back to the place firmly enough. But, you see, when it comes to Delta pull-out faucets, I feel compelled to use the phrase „even so” quite often since Delta always tends to go even a step further than what you might call tight, snug, elegant.
Everything would have worked „even so”. Yet there is always some small smart feature added to reinforce what works well enough. Both faucets possess them, and the user satisfaction and positive feedback surpasses those of any other faucet.
Shape – The Largest Difference
Ashton suits better a neutral style kitchen
But there are also some differences that might be useful to know before taking the final decision on which faucet – Delta Ashton or Delta Leland will suit better our kitchen and home.
To begin with, let’s pay attention to their shape. Ashton is much more neutral. It resembles a bell-flower bud but is „technical” enough to suit a multifunctional contemporary style kitchen. It is the neutral shape that allows Ashton to be used more universally than the classical teapot inspired Leland.
As of the time when this is written, Ashton faucet is available in its touch sensitive variation being equipped with Delta again Touch2O® technology. This brings even more convenience and functionality to your kitchen. The faucets featuring Touch2O® can be activated with a single touch anywhere on the faucet’s body or handle. The touch feature is currently unavailable for Leland.
Leland is more complete as a collection of faucets and accessories
But the graceful lines of Leland faucet draw the inspiration from a refined teapot. This faucet model will suit better a kitchen with a slight tinge of retro in the design. It will be more difficult to get it harmonize with a kitchen where the main focus has been made not so much on a particular style than on the overall convenience and functionality.
But if you plan remodeling not only the kitchen but the whole apartment or house, then your choice is most likely Leland. There are also Leland bathroom faucets and lots of accessories available while the Ashton faucet cannot boast so many related items.
Summarizing all the things said here, we may conclude that Delta Ashton faucet suits best a neutral style functional kitchen while Leland gives the possibility of unified style for the whole house.
