Last week I had the delightful opportunity to travel to Indianapolis, Indiana to meet with the amazing folks at Delta Faucet and it really got the inspirational daydreams going in my head… specifically for kitchen and bath renovations in 2018 (yup, I tend to plan ahead a lot). I sort of went in to the trip a bit blind because I hadn’t really considered much about kitchen and bath faucets or even shower heads. I just knew that everything in my house was extremely old, but somehow still worked…
While visiting the headquarters, I had the most surreal experience of my career. To welcome us (it was me and 10 other bloggers and designers), Delta invited all of their employees to cheer for us when we came into their building! It was absolutely amazing and I’ve never experienced anything like that before. It was a really nice touch that totally set the tone for a really fun couple of days.
We started off by learning all about Delta’s high end, designer line called Brizo. The materials and finishes for this brand are absolutely stunning and very elevated, like teak, knurling texture, brushed gold, and matte black. These faucets felt like true art, to be honest.
We also spent a lot of time learning about the range of products from Delta and all of the innovative technology that goes into each item. I was really blown away by how many patents the brand holds and how each applies to their products. For the kitchen I found myself mildly obsessed with the Touch20 Technology, which essentially lets you turn your water on and off with a slight tap anywhere on the faucet. As someone who cooks a lot and doesn’t want to risk cross-contamination, this innovation is genius and will definitely be part of my kitchen renovation (I’ve been eyeing the Trinsic pull-down kitchen faucet).
Then in the bathroom we learned about the H20kinetic showers and I just about lost my mind. They literally have figured out a way to maximize the shower head’s water output so you feel like you’re wetter and warmer. It’s CRAZY. We haven’t changed out the shower head in the bungalow’s terrible bathroom yet, but after this… well, let’s just say this new shower head is officially on it’s way to Seattle.
I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but I was really excited to learn about Delta Faucet’s new Water Leak Detector technology. As someone who discovered some massive leaks, I can tell you that early detection is vital to avoid further damage. These devices can be placed anywhere (mine will be next to the water heater and washing machine) and will alert you if it detects even the tiniest bit of moisture. I don’t even want to talk about how much money this device could have saved me…
The trip was really so awesome and super informative. I can’t help but start daydreaming about what my kitchen and bath renovations could be, plus it was really fantastic to meet some bloggers I’ve admired for years and to finally connect in person (and maybe cook up some collaborations!).
