Readers of Kitchen and Bath Business (KBB) magazine, a leading trade publication serving kitchen and bath designers, have voted California Faucets a winner in four categories in the 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards. Winners in the seventh annual contest were selected by a readership comprised of designers, remodelers, and others, who cast a record 31,000 votes this year. Readers chose their favorite products based on criteria including manufacturer support, local availability, price point for their typical client budget, and category-specific attributes.
California Faucets earned honors in the categories of Kitchen Faucets, Bath Faucets, Bath Accessories, and Shower Systems:
California Faucets’ award-winning Kitchen Collection, recognized for criteria including water efficiency and style/aesthetics/finish, spans traditional, transitional, and contemporary faucets in Pull Down, Pull Out, Culinary, and Prep/Bar models, in addition to Pot Fillers. Each series features a full suite of accessories, including Soap Dispensers, Hot and Cold Water Dispensers, Dual Hot/Cold Water Dispensers, and Garbage Disposer Air Switches. Just one example is the Descaniso Kitchen Pull-Down Faucet, featuring a cylindrical shape and knurling for an industrial-inspired style.
Like in the kitchen category, KBB readers selected bath faucet winners based on water efficiency and style/aesthetics/finish. California Faucets’ bath faucet lines provide designers and consumers with tremendous flexibility to mix and match virtually any handle with any spout in any of the 28 available finishes. For instance, the Rincon Bay widespread bath faucet can now be specified with cross handles to take its Mid-Century Modern style in a more traditional direction.
California Faucets offers accessories to match every faucet series, allowing for a completely coordinated look that helps define the style of the bathroom. All accessories are available in the company’s 28 artisan finishes. Criteria in this category included style and aesthetics, and the ability to coordinate with fixtures.
California Faucets’ shower systems, recognized based on style and water efficiency, were the first in the world with a CALGreen-compliant thermostatic valve, which meets the most stringent water conservation requirements in the country today. The systems combine premium performance and tremendous design versatility, but at a similar price to inferior standard technology such as pressure balance.
“Receiving reader recognition for a single product category is a wonderful honor, but winning in four different categories is beyond gratifying,” said Jeff Silverstein, president and CEO, California Faucets. “We deeply thank KBB’s readers for their validation and pledge to continue bringing innovative, handcrafted fittings to market.”
