Finding Just the Right Fit

Finding Just the Right Fit

  • When it comes to bath sinks and faucets, transitional is in,
    defined by the increasing use of an eclectic mix of traditional and
    contemporary styles, materials and colors.
  • Everything old really is new again. Due to code restrictions,
    using actual antiques has fallen out of favor. But reproductions of
    1920s & ’30s designs are an industry-wide trend.
  • Pedestal lavs and over-the-counter bowls and vessels are
    out-pacing vanities this year, particularly for the guest bath.
    Vanities continue to be most popular for the master bath, but
    coordinated furniture pieces addressing storage problems are
    beginning to change this.
  • An exploding color palette marks the most noticeable change in
    sink design, including the use of cobalt blues, warm earth tones in
    rose and green, and some yellows. Various shades of biscuit
    complement white and almond. 
  • Hand-painted floral and leaf designs are hot right now, both in
    the basin and on faucets and handles with in-lays.
  • Non-tarnishing brass is falling out favor, making way for
    nickels and chromes in soft, satin finishes. Pre-tarnished and
    plain brass are also in demand. Cross-handles are slightly favored
    over levers, though the latter is gaining in popularity as Baby
    Boomers age. 
  • Consumers are recognizing the secondary bath as an ideal
    place for making personal design statements without going to great
    expense, making it the newest showplace on the home tour.
