What puts those final touches on a kitchen or bath project? It’s the hardware and fixtures of course! Fixtures can really make or break your kitchen or bathroom’s look and that’s why our friends at Hire It Done and Infusion Kitchen and Bath Showroom got together to give our viewers advice for your next home improvement project.
Here’s what you need to know.
Make sure the fixture you love functions the way you need it to
Choosing form over function can be foolish and lead to frustration. After all, a pretty faucet that creates a splash every time you turn it on can make your new space uncomfortable to use. Another good example is installing a wall mount faucet. The water turn off valve is not under the sink, but all the way down in the basement. That can prove to be a huge hassle in the future.
Hire it Done recommends that before you buy, ask your fixture expert at Infusion Kitchen and Bath Showroom what is required to install it and what is needed to actually use it. Once you find out the best function for your home, then comes the fun part; you can choose from an array of different designs they offer.
Get a finish that coordinates
Once you have figured out what fits best for your home, find the finish that will compliment your new design. You want to consider the paint colors, countertops and larger items, like the refrigerator finish, when deciding on a look for your fixtures. If you have trouble deciding on a finish, here is what is trending in the industry at the moment:
- Satin or Brushed Nickel
- Polished Nickel
- Flat Black Finish
- Brushed or Matte Brass
If you really want to take your fixtures to the next level, try the ever so trendy and bold split finish. That’s using two different finishes together giving your room that touch of sophistication you have been looking for. And remember, Infusion Kitchen and Bath Showroom has many design experts on hand to help you complete your look, so you can get great advice from the professionals!
Stay on the Technology Train
It’s no surprise that technology has found its way into your kitchen and bathroom. Home technology doesn’t always have to be a splurge item; it can really be affordable and bring convenience to your home. So begin with finding the technology that would best benefit yourself and family.
The touch-less water faucet turns on by just simply waving your hand in front of it. Can you imagine how much easier that is when you are prepping tonight’s chicken dinner? And did you know that you could sync your bathtub to your phone so that you can control your bath? You can even get kitchen faucets that work with smart home speakers such as Amazon Alexa.
Technology possibilities are endless! Just ask about your options and learn what technology fits your budget and lifestyle.
Using these tips, you can make any outdated bathroom or kitchen into a trendy space just by updating the hardware and Infusion Kitchen and Bath Showroom is here to help! With expansive showrooms, knowledgeable staff and top of the line products, your next home project is sure to be a winner.
