Fashion-forward people of the world, could we borrow your attention for a minute? Naturally, you’re buying the hottest styles of clothes and accessories. You brunch at some fancy locales. You take pride in your appearance. But is that reflected in your home?
Yes, you can own all the Louboutins in the world, but if your shower heads are sub-par and your faucets are blah, then you’re not using your fashion expertise to your advantage! Friend, you need to find some Brizo products — and fast!
Brizo, a brand from Delta Faucet, is known as the Cadillac of the kitchen and bath fittings world. Their products are high-end, high-class, and undeniably luxurious. Brizo designers take pride in their work, and it shows, from the materials used to the final finishes. Everything Brizo makes is impressive.
To learn more about Brizo, we spoke with Delta Faucet Senior Product Marketing Manager Kristen Baum at the 2018 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS).
Brizo = Distinction
It was evident the minute the House Tipster Media Team stepped foot into the KBIS booth: Brizo is posh. And that’s the exact feeling they’re going for. Per Kristen, Brizo is all about “distinctive designs, artful craftsmanship, and luxury with a conscience.”
Here at KBIS, the booth has remained popular. “The booth had been both busy and exciting,” she said. “It’s good to meet with a large range of people, from builders to designers, and people from the media. [KBIS] is the perfect place to show off what we have to offer.”
The Brizo product line, which includes a vast assortment of kitchen faucets and bathroom fixtures, is made right here in the United States in plants throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, and Michigan. And those beautiful designs you see, well, they were created by a professional industrial design team dedicated to staying ahead of the trend curve.
Going Big with Gold and Other Trends
Throughout KBIS, we’ve noticed a big focus on finishes. Everything from matte black and black stainless to gold accents is quite popular right now.
Brizo’s booth showcased these same finishes, and then some. Per Kristen, “We have a lot of new, exciting products and finishes available right now, including Luxe Gold...We’re going big on gold this year.” This subdued gold finish, which in our opinion is perfection defined, is available in two highly popular fixture styles: Scandinavian design-inspired Odin collection the classic European curvature in the Tresa line.
Later in 2018, Brizo plans to introduce a new collection inspired by automobiles of the 1960s. The faucets will have very sleek, sophisticated, clean lines. At the same time, Brizo will offer a brand-new slate gray and charcoal-like finish called Luxe Steel.
“It’s the perfect neutral for contemporary and traditional customers,” Kristen said.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current standard kitchen and bath fixtures, or you’re building from scratch, there’s no better brand than Brizo if you’re looking to put your best foot forward.
However, keep in mind that Brizo is a trade-exclusive brand available only to industry professionals. To find a showroom near you, start here.
