Consider the space as a whole Before starting any design project, it’s best to have a game plan. Consider whether you’ll be trying to combine your new fixtures with ones you already own or if you’re going for a full remodel. In either scenario, it may be a good idea to find some design inspiration to work with.
When designing a kitchen or bathroom, every element counts. Since these rooms are so utilitarian, each piece does double duty in terms of providing a function and adding to the overall aesthetic. The fixture options you choose are no exception.
A small kitchen island can add extra counter space as well as storage — and even a breakfast bar. Small, round or square islands work better in smaller square spaces. Consider a longer narrow island for a rectangular space. A sofa console on wheels would be a great idea in a longer, galley kitchen. You can roll it into a kitchen as needed and then put it back behind your sofa when done.
A note for those who have decided to mix and match a variety of materials: The experts at Delta Faucets recommend coordinating styles by choosing similar finishes on all of your fixtures. For example, you could focus on choosing all polished or all brushed pieces to create a cohesive look.
