Creating a Cohesive Kitchen
There are a lot of different kitchen designs and styles out there. And you may find that there are components of a few different ones that you like, such as the subway tile of a Country kitchen with the sink of a Farmhouse design and the flooring of a more contemporary space. It’s important, though that your kitchen have a cohesive feel to it that can pull everything together, and one way to do this is by repeating, one element throughout the room, such as your faucetry.
The Artifacts® Pull-down Kitchen Faucet is the perfect blend of modern convenience and traditional décor. It’s also the perfect starting point for creating that cohesive design in your kitchen, by giving you a focus and a suite of other faucets to pair it with.
Completing the Look
Having an anchor piece, like the Artifacts Pull-Down Faucet, is just the first step toward creating a beautiful, polished-looking design. From here, you need to incorporate other elements that repeat, such as the Artifacts® Gentleman’s™ Bar Sink Faucet and the Artifacts® Wall-mount Pot Filler. Combined, the three pieces set the tone for the rest of the room, and give it a finished and cohesive design that makes it easy to follow up on with accents, lighting, and hardware.
For bathrooms, where the space tends to be smaller and you have fewer elements in play, it’s sometimes better to be a bit subtle in creating that cohesive design within the room. While it’s fine to have fixtures that match one another, it often makes a more interesting design with far more depth to it if you can create a space that works well, yet doesn’t necessarily match.
Just like in the kitchen, it’s important to have an anchoring piece in the room. In this case, the toilet, such as Kohler’s San Souci™ Comfort Height® One-piece Toilet is the perfect place to start. This sleek, one-piece toilet fits perfectly into numerous designs, while its curves set the stage for other elements within the room to follow.
Rounding Out the Design
Once you have an anchoring piece in the bathroom design, you can use various design elements within it complete that cohesive design. For example, the Alteo® Single-handle Lavatory Faucet has a similar aesthetic and curve to its body that the San Souci has, making it the ideal complement in the sink area, without necessarily matching down to the last detail.
While in the shower area, the Moxie® Showerhead gives you the same aesthetic, along with the added bonus of sound through its wireless built-in Bluetooth® speaker. The speaker docks directly into the showerhead, so your music is closer than ever when showering. While it plays your favourite sounds, this revolutionary showerhead generates a full-coverage, revitalizing spray of water for a sensory experience like no other. Moxie® is easy to install and use; the wireless speaker pops out for recharging, then securely pops back in for use while showering. You can even take it with you as a wireless speaker to use in any room of the house, or on the go.
Together, the three pieces create a look in the bathroom that is sleek, seamless, and far beyond ordinary or merely functional.
Bringing different design elements together into one is what truly makes a home beautiful in extraordinary ways. Look for ways to combine cohesive elements into one style to make the most of your space.
