The holiday season is often a whirl of activity, from hosting at-home gatherings to parties, shopping, special events and more. It’s the time of year when people want their homes to look their best — for entertaining and a personal respite from all the busyness.
Leading designers in the kitchen and bath industry offer a wealth of exciting products that create festive looks and relaxing spaces, from shimmering crystal hardware and metallic finishes to shiny sinks and luxurious tubs and showers. Here is a peek at some innovative designs that are certain to enhance any home during the holidays and beyond.
Elevate daily bathing rituals during the busy holiday season with the innovative Minimali shower by Gessi. This ceiling-installed shower system transforms the traditional shower into an extraordinary sensory experience with beautiful visuals, soothing sounds and oh-so-relaxing tactile sensations. Available in square or circular designs, the Minimali is a multifunction system with options for rainfall, waterfall and mist outputs.
The showerhead is installed flush against the ceiling for a modern, streamlined effect. Minimali is offered in 20 different finishes, from copper and gold to aged bronze and black metal. This amazing shower system brings a chic, sophisticated look to the bathroom and helps to create a spa-like space where users can focus on personal wellness and rejuvenation.
Slip Into Bliss
The elegant Eryn tub by MTI Baths adds glamour to the bathroom and is the perfect spot to soak up a much-deserved rest during the holidays. This freestanding tub offers a single slipper design with a raised end for a supremely comfortable bathing experience. Its compact design is not often found with slipper tubs, making the Eryn a smart choice for smaller spaces.
The tub features an integral faucet deck that can pull double-duty as a convenient shelf for soaps, candles and other bathtime necessities. Measuring 60 inches long, Eryn is part of MTI’s award-winning Designer Collection and is available in a choice of the company’s high-gloss Acrylic CXL or the exquisite DoloMatte with its velvety-soft surface. Both options are incredibly durable and resistant to scratches and stains.
All MTI tubs are made to order and handcrafted in the USA.
A Sink Made for Parties
Entertaining at home is easy with the Rendezvous Collection of kitchen sinks by Hamat USA. These workstation sinks are the epicenter of any holiday party, making prep time and clean-up a breeze with the utmost efficiency.
These amazing sinks feature built-in ledges to support helpful accessories such as a colander for rinsing produce and pasta, a rubberwood cutting board for fixing snacks, and an oversized drying mat to handle the largest pots and pans. The sinks are available in three sizes, including a 32-inch version with a single- or double-bowl option.
Each sink is handmade from T-304 stainless steel and features tight 10-millimeter radius corners for quick cleaning and a sleek, modern style. Rendezvous sinks are offered in 16-gauge and 18-gauge models, both including full undercoating and padding to minimize noise and condensation.
Add sparkle to any room in the house with dazzling Brilliant Cut Knobs by Grandeur Hardware. Named after the popular gem cut, these beautiful round knobs twinkle from every angle due to myriad polished facets that reflect light in a mesmerizing display. The knobs are formed from lead-free crystals and are unequaled in clarity.
All Grandeur Hardware is made from solid forged brass, resulting in a difference that can be felt and seen. Its signature Concealed Screw Mechanism neatly hides attachment screws, creating a clean look with no visible fasteners. The brand offers an extensive selection of knobs, pulls, levers, rosettes and backplates that may be paired to create custom looks, and all are backed by a lifetime mechanical warranty.
Nothing shimmers like beautiful satin brass. Isenberg translated this popular metallic into an alluring finish option for its shower fixtures. Its contemporary Serie 260 collection features an array of mix-and-match shower components to create custom configurations — from thermostatic valves and trims to rain showerheads, body jets and hand sprayers.
All are available in the new, warm satin brass with a lovely matte finish that disguises watermarks and fingerprints. The look is sophisticated and luxurious, casting a soft glow that works well against any background, from classic white to darker hues. All Isenberg fixtures are crafted from solid premium brass, meticulously finished and covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
