Moore says another major trend is mixing and matching finishes and products. “Sometimes it can be tricky to achieve the perfect complement of products, so we’ve made it easy with our new KOHLER Components faucet collection,” he says. “Homeowners can mix and match spouts, handles and finishes for a tailor-made environment, marrying modern designs with timeless shapes.”
Dan Worst, product manager of stainless steel sinks at Elkay, also believes that farmhouse sinks are still a demanding trend in the industry. “Elkay recently launched a groundbreaking Crosstown Stainless-Steel Farmhouse Sink with Interchangeable Apron, which is a true industry first,” he says. In just minutes, homeowners can now change the color and material of the sink face. “This sink allows consumers to change the appearance of the kitchen without the time investment, expense or stress involved with a full renovation.” If you’re a home décor enthusiast, being able to change the apron whenever you want definitely contributes to the farmhouse sink’s popularity.
Another trend is point of use faucets. “Consumers continue to show interest in eco-friendly design and technology – like the Franke StillPure system, which tracks water usage and filter lifespan through an app that pairs with consumers’ phones,” says Jach. The Franke 3-in-1 faucet delivers hot water, cold water and distilled water to ensure that you have pure water when you need it for cooking, prepping or rinsing.
Eric Moore, interior designer at the Kohler Design Center, describes some of their recent faucet trends. “At Kohler, we pride ourselves on developing products at the forefront of design and technology to create highly durable, unique products that marry form and function,” says Moore. “Our latest finish innovation—and the first of its kind in the industry—is a new Ombré faucet finish for the bath, which is available in two sets of color pairings: rose gold to polished nickel, and titanium to rose gold,” he says. “The new finish uses an innovative technique that melds two vibrant metal finishes together to render a subtle but striking transition from light to dark.” Moore adds that Ombré also uses Kohler’s proprietary physical vapor deposition process (PVD) to create a scratch- and tarnish-resistant surface.
