Do you have to stick with one single brand or product line in your bathroom when it comes to new faucets/shower systems/accessories? Absolutely not.
A common misconception is that you need to stick with the exact same product line or brand in order to have a matching bathroom. If you’re going with a chrome finish, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. More often than not we can find many different brands with some very similarly styled items especially when it comes to faucets and accessories.
Sometimes items can be backordered or have significant lead times. Don’t let that get in the way of finishing your project with the desired style you’ve always had in mind. That’s when cross branding can sometimes bail you out in a pinch or maybe even look better than you had originally imagined. See some examples below of some matching items from different brands.
Fleurco released their new line of freestanding bathtubs a few years ago, and since I received their catalog I have fell in love with the Cresent. In particular the Cresent Petite. The bathtub has such elegance to the shape that looks straight out of a glamour magazine. I could picture myself coming home after work, filling the bathtub and relaxing with a tall glass of wine. The bathtub comes in two sizes and is a perfect addition to any Ensuite.

There’s something about this particular faucet that caught my attention ever since I first stepped foot into the showroom. The sleek lines and contoured edges that blend into the prominent lever handles and spout, resembling the tail fins of a 1950’s era Cadillac show off a modern take on a classic look like no other.
I’ve always loved anything that resmbles the “atomic age” of Americana. Whether it was simply the post-war optimism of the nation, or the ever growing fascination with the space program and aeronautics. This faucet looks like it was designed to be aerodynamic and fast. With a variety of different finishes by Brizo ranging from chrome, polished nickel, and matte black (to name a few), this faucet is sure to grab the attention of anyone who sees it.
Make the bathroom complete with matching tub fillers and shower trim for a modern classic look you’ll be sure to fall in love with!
House & Homes Lynda Reeves gives us a first look at her newly renovated bathroom! Check out what she has to say about her bathroom and what inspired her.
In the last ten years in the plumbing industry I have witnessed a lot of new, beautiful products introduced into the marketplace. Recently there has been a renewed emphasis on style, particularly in bathroom design.
In today’s market however, it is exciting what this renewal is delivering when we mix design with technology. There is something interesting and exciting about what we can now do with water and technology merging together in the space.
One of my new favorite products at the intersection of design and technological innovation is Kohler's Veil toilet. Not only does the new Veil toilet have a gorgeous sleek design, it is on the cutting edge of innovation with respect to cleanliness. The long graceful lines and easy to clean exterior mesh perfectly with its self-cleaning technology and state of the art built in bidet functionality. The seat warmer, night light, UV and deodorizers really make the Veil a leader in clean innovation all without sacrificing fashion appeal. Oh and I almost forgot, its comfortable to sit on.
It's possible! A full bathroom remodel in just three weeks. The cool, clean crispness of this bathroom is offset with a subtle touch of light grey/blue.
Fixtures: Riobel Edge in chrome, Fleurco K2 doors with return panel in polished stainless, Opus Waltz Petite bathtub, Fairmont Designs Rustic Chic vanity in silvered oak with matching mirror and Kohler Highline CH Elongated toilet.
