Plumbing Fixture Trends
Apron Front Kitchen Sinks
The resurgent popularity in apron front kitchen sinks can be attributed in large part to the farmhouse design trend, although not entirely. There is something about these deep sinks that undoubtedly evoke romantic notions of country living. However, Reynolds feels they are equally capable of adding a unique focal point to almost any other style of kitchen design. Available in a myriad of colors, as well as eye-catching hammered copper or nickel, apron sinks are truly one of those “old is new again” types of trends.
Sensor faucets help prevent the spread of germs with a slight touch of the hand.
A simple touch of the hand is all that’s needed to operate the Delta Addison kitchen faucet.
It is somewhat ironic that the kitchen faucet has long been both the cause and solution for the spread of germs within the kitchen. While in the heat of meal preparation, it’s almost impossible for the time-pressed cook to avoid contaminating their faucet by direct hand contact. Realizing that a lot of germs can be taken out of circulation by a touchless faucet, manufacturers have developed new sensor driven faucets that can be operated with a simple touch. It is not surprising that the technology has been expanded to include bathroom applications as well.
Chris’ article has some very nice ideas. You may not be in the market for some of the more unique stylings, but one thing we do know; new plumbing fixtures will definitely improve your lifestyle and comfort.
Sheila Kim from Architizer online magazine has information from the annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) for 2017. Many of the newest fixtures are built with new materials and in a wide array of colors.
Kitchen and Bath Industry Show – Fixture Trends
Architizer is back from Orlando where we saw the latest developments and soon-to-be-available products in residential kitchen and bath during the annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). There is a lot to talk about so we’re breaking down our recap into three separate reports starting with a look at what’s trending in fixtures, fittings, furniture and cabinetry.
You’re going to see more color options for faucets and handles in both the kitchen and the bath. We’ve already seen gold, rose-gold and bronze tones make a comeback in recent years, but more manufacturers are hopping on this train, and some are going in a direction that’s a little warmer or less shiny. In addition to these hues, there’s a rise in gunmetal and matte-black finishes. The black in particular we saw recently in some of the mid- to high-end European markets, so it’s no surprise that the U.S. is catching onto this.
Another growing trend that seemed to traverse from overseas is the kitchen sink in quartz and composite materials. A number of the companies developed their own proprietary material, each touting excellent scratch, impact and heat resistance as well as a much easier to clean surface.
