When you buy a kitchen sink faucet with a spray wand, it is meant to be used with the spray wand. In fact the difference between the ones that come with a wand and those that don’t is that the ones that don’t have have a little plug in the hole where the wand attaches in the version that does come with a wand.
Of course if you don’t want to use the wand in the version you purchase, all one needs to do is buy the proper plug and plug up the hole---the plug even comes with some of these faucets.
Of course another alternative is to install the faucet on the sink and then just install the wand and hang it in the cabinet under the sink---like in the picture below.
With this approach, while you may run the risk of inadvertent leaks, think of the conversation starter you will have, and how clever you will feel having avoided spending .43 cents on a proper plug for the faucet.
I find this “solution” about once a year---I just wave my magic wand---but I keep finding them.
