Make your home a Dream Home

Find faucets that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing

By now you know you didn’t win the HGTV Dream Home. Sigh. We didn’t either but we did borrow ideas to share with you. This month we have some inspiration that can help you design a sweeter en suite. Faucets are an unsung hero and are often an afterthought, but that shouldn’t be the case. Take a cue from the HGTV designers who combined form with function to make sure these rooms sparkle.

Sometimes subtle is good

In the HGTV Dream Home guest bath, we appreciate that the designer made the bold color and palm frond the heroes. The faucet is functional and works well with the light fixture and knobs, but it kind of disappears. Design is not always about what you see – in this case, it is about what you don’t see.

Hands free

We love the touch technology in this kitchen faucet. It looks gorgeous on the sleek island and will stay gorgeous without mucky prints and drip marks.

Wash your pets

The flexible laundry room and mudroom features a pet washing station with this handy four-setting, two-in-one faucet mounted to the wall. The built-in soap dispenser makes washing pets easier.

Go for the gold

There is something glamorous about gold, and it pairs well with so many colors. In the HGTV Dream Home master en suite, gold fixtures add a vintage feel against the black and white tiles.
