8 Kitchen and Bath Fixtures That Showcase Form and Function

Many of the latest plumbing fixture options on the market are designed to “break the mold” in one way or another, whether in terms of function, design, or ease of use. Here are eight examples of lights designed to solve a pain point, add a new level of comfort, and deliver both beauty and performance:

The filtered water dispenser Elkay ezH20 Liv.


The latest version of Elkay’s ezH20 commercial bottle fillers is the ezH20 Liv, which is designed for home use. It fits between two wall posts and can be placed anywhere in a new or existing home with access to water and electrical outlets. The dispenser is sensor controlled and has an automatic, timed shutdown to prevent accidental spillage. Its durable filter is NSF certified to reduce lead and other harmful contaminants. Optional features include a drain connection from the drip tray and a safety lock that prevents unattended use. elkay.com

The two-piece Betello toilet features both Kohler’s Revolution 360 flush technology, which flushes the entire bowl surface, and ContinuousClean, which dispenses a small amount of toilet bowl cleaner with each flush. The CleanCoat surface treatment repels water and dirt and prevents the formation of bacteria, powdery mildew and mineral deposits. The toilet is labeled WaterSense and has a separate plinth with a plinth that allows the same installation process as a toilet without a plinth. kohler.com

The Infinity wall fitting differs from the conventional placement of bathroom fittings in that it has a wall-mounted spout that frames a bathroom mirror on the left or right. The full fixture is 34 “tall and has two mounting brackets, separate wall-mounted flow and temperature controls, and a 9” spout from the wall into the sink. The faucet has a hidden aerator for cleaning and operates at a flow rate of just 1.2g / min.isoenbergfaucets.com


The Metris and Talis faucet collections now include a combination of two functions in the Select 2 spray configuration. Users can stop the water flow from the faucet using the select button on the faucet head or use another button on the faucet head side to control and switch between the traditional and laminar spray modes. Both are available in HighArc or Prep configurations and have the QuickClean surface coating from Hansgrohe, with which limescale and dirt can be easily removed. hansgrohe.com


KOVA Select, the new premium product line from Katerra, comprises a total of 24 new sanitary fittings and modular system components with which installers can arrange KOVA products in various configurations. The fittings in the line – including a bathtub spout, kitchen and bathroom fittings, shower arms for wall and ceiling mounting as well as shower heads and handles – are characterized by a slim, cylindrical design aesthetic. All are CALGreen certified and available in polished chrome, satin nickel or matt black. kovaproducts.com


The GO faucet series, which was awarded the international REDDOT “Best of the Best” award in 2017, is characterized by slim lines and organic shapes that are inspired by the sophistication and grace of nature. The devices with ultra-high efficiency are marked with WaterSense, work at only 1.2 gallons per minute and are equipped with COMFORT GLIDE technology from TOTO. The faucets are made of brass and are available in polished chrome, polished nickel or brushed nickel. One-handed, widespread, half-pot, pot, side handle and wall mount configurations, as well as a tub filler with an optional hand shower, are available. totousa.com

The hand shower has a long handle and 72 “metal hose, while the rainfall showerhead has a 7 1/2” spray surface and can be used in conjunction with the hand shower. Both shower heads are WaterSense certified and finished in brushed nickel from Moen’s Spot Resist. moen.com
