Design: Sinks, Faucets and Countertops … the Choices are Endless

by Linda Mazur
Photography by Stephani Buchman and Jason Hartog

Kitchens are one of my favourite rooms to design and with the abundance of options available to us today, kitchens are more exciting than ever! From a multitude of colourful options and wonderfully organic finishes for our faucets, to virtually indestructible materials for our sinks and counters, the choices we have are enough to make our heads spin!

Today the traditional double bowl stainless sink has been pushed aside for options that offer greater style and function, that are designed to not only make our lives simple, but our kitchens look far more attractive. From different finish options other than the classic stainless steel, to a wide selection of colour, shape and size options sinks today have progressed to become a stylish feature instead of just a utilitarian necessity. And, for those of us who are smallspace dwellers, many manufacturers have designed sinks that pull double duty to increase the efficiency in your kitchen. When counterspace is at a premium, these sink options allow you to expand your work surface with add-on accessories such as grid trays, cutting boards, colanders and drain boards. Blanco Canada, one of these great sink manufacturers, offers us both an innovative and well-designed product line. One of my particular favourites – the Ikon apron sink or “farm house sink – is very much en-pointe in kitchen design this year. This sink offers great lines and a slightly tapered profile that gives us a rather modern approach to a traditional classic.

Brass is back with a vengeance and is one of the hottest metals moving forward in kitchen design. This is not the shiny yellow brass of decades past, but rather an unlacquered brass with its beautifully aged and antiqued finish that we are now seeing. This unlacquered brass has a look and feel all its own. It’s warm, less formal than polished nickel, less typical than chrome. This finish is organic and is sometimes referred to as a “living finish”. Because of the absence of the lacquer the durable solid brass is permitted to naturally age over time to develop a beautiful unique patina of colour and texture, that is forgiving of water stains. It offers sophistication, old world charm and yet modernism, and is a wonderful option for your kitchen faucet. Also hot in the world of faucets is colour! Fun can be had with a multitude of colour options for your faucets, but what is most striking is the return of matte black – a chic and classy addition to any kitchen.

We have a long list of options available to us today for countertops. From traditional granite and the ever-classic natural marble, to quartz, wood, and concrete – a trendy option for your kitchen. This year we are also introduced to a new product – Laminam. This is a stain, scratch and heat resistant countertop option that achieves the beauty of natural stone, wood and concrete and requires no maintenance.

With advanced technology and designs that enhance functionality and durability, these new product options will not only look great in our homes, but also add ease and simplicity to our everyday lives. If you’re looking to renovate your space, do a bit of research and consider some of the new and wonderful products on the market today …. sinks, faucets and countertops are not what they used to be!

Design: Kitchen Life

by Linda Mazur

The kitchen is the heart of any home, and the trends that we see emerging are making this an exciting time to add new life and personality to your kitchen space. Functionality is always key to kitchen design, but today’s kitchens are also about creating a timeless style and comfort. Without compromising on the functionality of the space, kitchens have evolved into rooms that inspire creativity not only in cooking but also in design.

One of the big trends this year is colour. We are seeing colour just about everywhere in design and your kitchen is no exception. Neutral kitchens are impacted with bold bursts of colour in everything from your cabinetry, to appliances, tile, sinks and faucets. This is not to say that traditional white kitchen cabinets are still not popular but injecting a good dose of colour to your kitchen to accompany those white cabinets can’t hurt. Working with texture and natural elements continues to gain popularity and one of my favourites for a kitchen is concrete.

This year we are seeing the trend of concrete making its move from the floors up to the countertops…a look I just love. Concrete counters offer a wide selection of customization when it comes to colour, as well as being durable it’s also an affordable option. On the topic of natural elements, wood is “en-pointe” as we see the continued popularity of wide-plank flooring that boasts lighter tones and a warm aged appearance to support the movement towards the relaxed “farmhouse” vintage inspiration we are seeing emerging in design. This “farmhouse” vintage inspiration impacts everything from hardware and lighting to sinks and faucets. Warm, aged brass and gold-toned metal feeds our desire to have our spaces not appeared “perfect” but rather more lived-in and comfortable; evoking an aesthetic that reflects both an individualism and eclectic appeal.

Black is back and in a big way this year. Black is classic and yet modern, and in faucets is a great option as it doesn’t show wear and tear or water spots as easily as some other finishes do…which can be an obvious bonus in a kitchen. When working with black in your kitchen space you do need to remember to use it in several areas not just the faucet, for balance and a well-designed aesthetic. Lighting, hardware, appliances and accessories are all easy ways to integrate black in to your kitchen. If you’re a bit more on the daring side perhaps consider black for a section of your cabinetry, with the trend towards pantry walls this could be a simple and yet impactful statement in the kitchen.

Whatever your inspiration, undoubtedly, the new look of kitchens has much to offer. Whether it’s simple flat front cabinet doors, bold colours, beautiful matte black appliances or warm polished concrete countertops I think we can all agree that the kitchens we will be seeing moving forward are spaces that are inviting, inspiring and conducive to everyday family life as well as casual entertaining. Functionality need not be sacrificed for good style, if your kitchen makes the renovation list this year then look to create a space that has personality, individualism and above all fantastic style!

Hard as stone

Latest News


Hard as stone

By Shelanne Jennings-Augustine of Dockside Magazine

Finding the perfect fixtures for your kitchen or bath remodel can be hard to do.

“There are many options on the market that look great. But it can be hard to tell how well they’ll operate and how long they’ll last,” says Rick Cooke, manager of The Water Closet in Orillia.

That’s why, when it comes to finding beautiful, strong fixtures for your home, Rick says your best bet is to go back to the basics.

“Some of the best fixtures today feature natural elements,” says Rick. “Steel, stone and brass all look beautiful in your home, but they also pack some significant strength that will save you money in the long run.”

Start with steel

Stainless steel is no stranger to industrial and architectural industry, but bath and kitchen retailers are also using it in many of their residential fixtures.

The reason, Rick says, is clear: “They’re corrosion resistant, extremely durable and hygienic.”

What many may not realize is that stainless steel has a surface that is very difficult for bacteria to stick to, making it very easy to keep clean.

“If you’re updating your kitchen, try a stainless steel sink that’s both beautiful and practical,” says Rick. “Like the Quatrus R15 stainless steel apron front kitchen sink by Blanco. Its contemporary design has 15mm radius corners that make it very easy to clean. For a matching fixture, check out the Culina faucet by Blanco. It also made of stainless steel and has an interesting coil arch neck and maneuverable wand with push button flow selector.”

To add some texture, depth and durability to the bathroom, consider adding a sink made of stone or concrete.

“Take the Native Trails Americana Vanity,” says Rick. “It uses reclaimed wood for a rustic, textured look, and is topped with a gorgeous concrete sink.”

Although concrete is a rather unconventional material for fixtures, Native Trails has designed their concrete sinks to be sustainable, light weight, and stain, scratch and crack resistance.

“On top of that, they have a one-of-a-kind colouration that looks great with any style.”

If you’re not keen on concrete, look for vanities that feature limestone instead. Grey limestone has a low porosity, is extremely durable, and is generally low maintenance.

“Look for pieces that combine stainless steel and limestone like the UNIK Stone vanity,” says Rick. “This vanity is artisan crafted to be both strong, ecologically responsible and incredibly beautiful.”

If you’re looking to update your fixtures and add a splash of colour to your space, consider fixtures made of solid brass. Not only does brass come in a number of finishes, it’s also extremely durable.

“It’s impervious to the elements and resistant to corrosion,” says Rick.

For a modern take on a brass fixture, check out the Vero widespread lavatory faucet in champagne bronze by Delta.

“This industrial designed faucet features sharp design lines details which look great in bright brass.”

High efficiency

To complete your bathroom renovation, why not add strength to your toilet too? Although high efficiency and power aren’t often seen synonymously, the latest low-flow toilets offer more suction than ever before.

“Now you can use as little as 4.1 litres of water, without having to flush twice.”

For high quality design and a modern style, Rick suggests the American Standard Boulevard one piece Toilet.

“The dual flush feature is great for saving water and maximizing conservation.”

Before you begin your project, stop into your local plumbing fixture expert and see the products for yourself.

“At The Water Closet, we’re always here to show you the latest products and answer your questions. Our goal is to get you the best looking fixtures that will look great for years to come.”
