There are many reasons to choose faucets with a modern design for your next project. You may be thinking it’s all about the looks—and that’s definitely part of it—but there are a few other reasons you may not have considered.
The Good Looks!
We did say that looks are a part of it—especially in many of today’s commercially designed spaces, which focus on clean lines and bold statements like accent lighting beneath the counter. In this type of space, a traditionally designed faucet will at best be underwhelming, and at worst, might actually distract from the overall look of the space.
Keep in mind, too, that where looks are concerned, there’s more to it than creating a beautiful space. Modern design is popular because of the impression that it makes. It’s a sleek, sophisticated design style that reflects well on the designers who created the look.
Beautiful, Durable Finishes
Most faucets are available in a variety of finishes—but not all pull off those finishes so well as a faucet with a modern design. The Dia and Duro lines are available in chrome, satin nickel, and matte black, which are finishes you can use to make that bold statement in a bathroom featuring contemporary styling.
Contrast that with faucets in a more traditional style. These faucets are generally expected to be chrome, or occasionally brass or gold to match the old-fashioned look. In modern finishes like matte black, they just don’t have the same impact as a clean-lined modern faucet.
Ease of Cleaning
One of the hallmarks of contemporary design is clean lines and smooth surfaces—and that comes with the added advantage that this is an easy style to clean. The little nooks and crannies where grime likes to hide are minimized with this type of style. In a commercial or public bathroom, ease of cleaning is critical, particularly fixtures like faucets that are touched by dozens if not hundreds of people each day.
When you’re ready to start your next project, check out the Symmons line of sensor faucets. You’ll find a variety of both traditional and modern design styles, everything needed to create the perfect look. And more importantly? This is hardware that is built to last with tough finishes and durable fittings made to stand up to the demands of commercial bathrooms.
