Kohler K-8649-96 Shower Base - We purchased this Kohler Shower Base and had it installed. The first time my son used it he fell because it was so slippery. When I felt it it was as slippery as ice. The base was listed as no slip. When I contacted Kohler they said there was no issue with the base. When someone from Kohler came to look at it, we were told the we purchased it and we should have done more research. When reliable company, like Kohler, list the shower base say it is no slip, it should be no slip. They told us we can apply a nonslip coating to the shower base, but that would void the warranty. This is the last time we will buy a Kohler Product.
Buyer beware. I just purchased a Kohler Walk-in tub for my mom. On their website Kohler promises that what they quote you will be what you pay for the tub and installation. Well that is not true, we had to pay an additional $1600 for plumbing in order to connect to the tub. I also just found out we need an 80-90 gallon water heater and I only have a 40 gallon heater. My mom only gets enough hot water to cover her legs, but not enough to use the jets. I am so disappointed that a respected company such as Kohler does not honor what they promise. The company that installed the tub had no idea that a larger water heater was needed? So the most expensive walk-in tub on the market is now costing me an additional cost of between $2200-$3200 thousand dollars. I have called complained and nothing. Buyer beware!
I built a new home on Sanibel Island and most of my fixtures are from Kohler. I have the very modern Carbon faucets in my kitchen and was having a lot of trouble with them but when I called customer service new parts were sent to me free of charge and my plumber fixed the problem immediately. I am thrilled with the customer service I received and most exceptionally with Lindsay, and Ali who were extremely helpful and pleasant. I will no longer be upset about my purchase. The faucets are beautiful and now work well too.
My Kohler experience was good. I picked it because I liked the look, the style and it wasn't too expensive. The only feature I required was the separate sprayer and that water comes out of the spout. There were other prettier faucets, but I will not pay hundreds of dollars for something that water comes out of. I do not truly care if it "goes" with my kitchen. I just want a product that does it's job. Kohler is a good faucet and it does the job that it is made for. It had a sprayer, which was the type I was replacing. And it was silver, which was the same color as the old one.
It was easy to install and Kohler is a quality brand with years of experience at an affordable price. They had a wide selection of different designs which was helpful in giving me a wide variety to choose from. The products they provide are beautiful and fit with my decor. It is also easy to clean which was also a factor in my choice.

The faucet I purchased has worked flawlessly since I have purchased it. The brand as far as I have experienced has been reliable and trustworthy which is all that I'm really looking for with any product especially one as important as a faucet.
First and foremost, I love the look and design because it's sleek and really looks like a sculpture. Secondly I like the way it is modern and changes between hot and cold so seamlessly as well as it really fits with the overall look of the room. However, I would increase the height of the spigot by 1/4 inch!! Still, Kohler has a lot to pick from and it's hard to select only one faucet. I like the functionality of the brand as well as the durability. They are reasonably priced and I had no issues and the quality of the brand has met all my expectations.
They are a local Wisconsin happy, lovely faucet and bathroom appliance, toilet, sink and kitchen company and it makes me very happy to support them online. I enjoy Kohler's offerings and love to look at the faucets and other things. The designs are very beautiful and the finishes are very high quality. They make me very happy to own and I enjoy them a lot. I love their faucets. Although some of them are just a little bit too expensive and I wish I could buy more options.
I been having this brand for a long time and I have a great experience in using it. It makes your job look great, easier and most wonderful. It improves an awesome work. I also see it very helpful in all ways. It makes everything easier and easy to use. It is a great idea to have this brand. If you get this brand there won't be anything you have to worry about. I am very happy to have it. I love it and I would like to recommend it.
I was in market for a new kitchen faucet and they are so expensive! Found this one on the store for a great price and is a good one. It is kinda big for me but I like it. It looks beautiful and big and functions perfectly. The finish is like Nickel and resists tarnish and corrosion from the daily use. People assume I paid more for it than I did. Also, it is easy to install. I had a plumber to install it and it took him about 1 hour.
I was looking for something modern in a finish that wouldn’t show spots, and Kohler has the best selection. Kohler has great modern designs at a reasonable price that can be easily found at any major home improvement stores. However, I would like to see more variety in the lines at Home Depot and Lowe’s. Other than that, it is a great faucet and it looks and functions great. I will buy again for other bathroom and kitchen projects.
It met my expectations for the most part. It was a bit cheaper quality than I would have liked but then again it was one of the cheapest on display at the store. All in all it works just fine. The price was the main factor and it typically is for most people. You have a range and buy what style fits your needs within that spectrum. It was the style I wanted for an affordable price. Color was also important and use of sprayer.
I had Kohler in a previous home and this brand last for a long time without any problems. The faucet looks great and has a sleek modern look that complements my decor and light fixtures. Love the brush nickel finish and the touch feature that makes the water automatically come on. And the price was within my budget; Kohler was on sale. The faucet was very easy for my plumber to install and it works smoothly. The water flow is very good but it could always be a little better.
The Kohler faucet is very unique and has a handle like the old wells. The Kohler faucet is brushed nickel so it goes with all my decor. This faucet is perfect and will last a lifetime if I want it to. Love this brand. It is very classy and strong. This is a great faucet to have in your home.
I knew Kohler is excellent. It met every expectation. I use the sink every day and have not been disappointing with the use of the faucet. Love every feature and the design is great. High front helps with pots and water distribution. I love the accessibility of the pull down front part of the faucet. The alternative of spray function helps with vegetable cleaning. The pressure it pull is even and works well with cleaning dishes and fruits and vegetables.
My mom recommended Kohler and it met my expectations more. The price was really good for the exceptional quality and it really made a difference in this purchase. The quality was unbeatable and the price made it that much better. It is very heavy duty and withstands multiple use from my family, including 2 young children. It works way better and has lasted longer than any other faucet I have previously purchased. The chrome is easy to clean too. Kohler really is perfect and I would recommend this faucet to friends and family.
I like the long spout and the choice of different finishes and colors. I like the option of having a spray feature. I like the prices and that it is carried at many stores. It met my expectations. It looked nice in the room when it was installed. It worked correctly and made my job easier in that room. It was commented on by many people who visited my house. I like all the features, except maybe even more finishes and colors to choose from. It could be offered and a lot more price ranges.
I am familiar with Kohler products, and they were recommended to me by the contractor who did my kitchen renovation. The new faucet met all of my expectations. My Kohler kitchen faucet is stylish and enhances the decor of my kitchen. Love the brushed chrome and the vintage spigot look. I recommend it highly. However, it would be helpful to have the products more readily available. My contractor and I initially looked online but had to go to several stores to find the faucet I selected.
My overall experience with Kohler was great! A lot of people I know uses this brand. I bought the faucet because of the dependability of the product. It's convenient and it looks pretty, which I love. I like the hardware and its smoothness. The handles are very sophisticated yet so earthy. The faucet's also easy to use and I like the stream power. But I wish they would use the faucets as an incentive to help people. Updated faucets and longer use of existing faucets. I would also like them to drop the price and or send coupons to give all people an opportunity to buy this brand.
Had this brand before on one of our fixtures. Knew it to be reliable so we purchased another. Was also on sale and I think the one piece would look and fit better with new decor than the one we were replacing. I like that is all one unit and was able to get in the color tone I wanted. Also liked having the soap dispenser attachment come with the new faucet. Both were easy to install. However, I would improve the pull out nozzle to be able to swivel without have to pull out and turn manually. We have had to make adjustments to the faucet because of leaking where we had to pull out nozzle.
After an email to Kohler management, I'm happy to say that Kohler has responded with unprecedented speed and concern. I'm told the part is now on it's way to me. I have to tell you I am quite pleased with Kohler's concern to rectify the situation, and to improve their process with regards to their customer service. They have restored my confidence. Thank you to everyone at Kohler who have taken the time to set things straight.
I ordered a considerable amount of bathroom fixtures from Kohler, nearly $6,000 worth. After a long delay (more than a month), everything arrived. My contractor found the toilet tank lid (special order - Biscuit color) was broken in half. I immediately ordered a new one via Kohler customer service. They generously agreed the part would be replaced for free, and a new one shipped in 28 days. I was supposed to receive an email upon shipping. It's been a month, and no email. I called the toll free number (800-456-4537) and waited almost 20 minutes to be connected.
I was told they will have to call "production" to get an estimate of where this order is. This will take 2 days for production to respond to customer service! Then customer service will call me. Clearly, Kohler is NOT a premium brand anymore. The dismal level of service and excruciating delays is indicative of a "run of the mill" company, not of a premium brand. I cross my fingers for what I expect will be another long delay before receiving my part.
The faucet is so very beautiful. My husband was impressed by the style that looked so elegant but was so very simple. They really stand out. They are also very easy to keep clean. But I bought the faucet for the brand which turns out to be one of my better judgment calls. I usually don't buy brand names but this time I did. And we feel thankful finding such a beautiful piece. It will last for years and years. What a kitchen upgrade. We are thinking about upgrading both of our bathrooms using this brand. We like Kohler for everything but the price.
I really love the look of it and the style and I love how it is nice to look at and it works great. So reliable and worth the money. I love the fact that Home Depot sells this brand as well and the features you can get are really worth it. You can buy too from basic to more innovative and it keeps meeting my expectations. Although it would be awesome if more places had coupons for this as they are expensive so why not help the customer save a few bucks.
It is a faucet made out of good material, stainless steel, and chrome colored. It has an aesthetic design and it fits the style of the bathroom. It fit well in the space, measurement-wise as well. It is not too big or small or too shallow. I like the ergonomic handles. It was a fair price. It was also a while ago when we bought it. It was not too modern or traditional style and it was what the store had available that is why we got it. It would be better if it stuck out a little further towards the center of the sink. I wish it could make itself clean.
The faucet is an absolutely beautiful faucet for my bathroom sink. The shape is my favorite. I also love that it has a chrome finish. I love that it wasn’t expensive. My overall experience with Kohler was perfectly fine. I will definitely by this brand again.
Great first purchase of a Kohler! Was purchased at a Lowe's and the salesman recommended it over the other brands. It is a kitchen sink faucet with a single lever that moves back & forth. The end of the faucet pulls out as the sprayer rather than having a separate attachment. It is shines Chrome and has lasted over 7 years without any problems. The only minor problem is that the button which switches the water flow from "running" to "spray" has worn thin and torn, so this needs to be revised to withstand more wear & tear. It could probably be replaced but should not have to be. Overall, Kohler is a great faucet and was pretty innovative. It has been worth it and still looks good, too.
Well made and great product for the price. They have lots of designs and styles to chose from. We always buy this brand and I would recommend this to family and friends.
We have always had good luck with Kohler. When we bought our first house we started with this brand and continued through the purchases of five houses. The style and look is sleek in design and many different styles to choose from. The price was reasonable too. My husband felt that it was fairly simple to install. Replace any parts if it goes bad; so far no leaks or problems. And I would like to have time to new faucets that turn on and off by touch. If there was a way to keep your faucet from getting water spots that would be nice! Also, it would be nice if it was easier to get the sprayer out of the faucet.
It's a tall faucet, looks modern and nicer than other brands. I enjoyed the aspects of it and being able to touch to turn on and remove the spout to wash things that don’t quite fit under it. Make sure it easier to clean things. However, the brand is pricey and I don’t know why it has to be so to have something that looks nice. It’s ridiculous on that end. Otherwise, the experience has been good.
Kohler is a very well respected in the industry. It holds up and wears very well. Great brand at a reasonable price. However when a piece of it breaks you have to replace the whole thing. Can't just get the one part you need.
