Kevin Cradock’s Showroom Favorites — March 2020
A Note From Jason
Spring is in the air and I am loving these warm temps. I am especially looking forward to ‘spring forward’ this weekend for Daylight Saving Time and enjoying a few more hours of sunlight each day. As much as I appreciate the start of a new season, I also never forget to feel grateful for our Designer Bath customers — both old and new.
As you may know, we’re involved in many different styles of marketing. You can see us in print publications, on your social media feed, and our newest venture is video. Our goal is to connect with as many potential customers as possible, and this is why we’re asking: where do you go for inspiration? Is it online, in magazines, or at home shows? We want to make sure we’re reaching you. I encourage you to please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me where you find your kitchen and bath inspiration. In the meantime, be inspired by some of our clients choices in photos featured on our website.
Now without further ado, we are thrilled to announce this month’s blogger, Kevin Cradock of Kevin Cradock Builders. Kevin grew up in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston, Massachusetts surrounded by classic architecture that instilled in him a love of the art of carpentry and an appreciation for skilled craftsmanship. Kevin works closely with architects, designers and homeowners, building and renovating homes and crafting cabinetry, furniture, and millwork to meet each customer’s taste and lifestyle. We cannot wait to share his picks with you all.
Wishing you a fantastic March!
GROHE BLUE PURE CHILLED & SPARKLING DUAL FUNCTION FAUCET CHROME
Where functionality meets sleek design — this Grohe Blue Pure Chilled and Sparkling Dual Function Faucet combines the contemporary look of a designer faucet with a high-performance filter, cooler and carbonator. Aside from its beautiful chrome finish, I was impressed with its ability to dispense chilled drinking water as either still or sparkling, based on your personal preference.
There’s also a large sustainability factor at play with this model. By having an endless supply of drinking water in the kitchen, homeowners will ultimately be able to eliminate single use bottled water, which will have a positive impact on our environment.
GALLEY IDEAL WORKSTATION CULINARY KIT NATURAL BAMBOO
I am a huge fan of the The Galley Ideal Workstation. This product re-invented how we prepare, cook, clean, and entertain in our kitchens.
Another exceptional feature, in my opinion, is that you can cover the workstation with the accompanying bamboo panel when it’s not in use. This keeps the area both clean and visually-appealing.
WETSTYLE WALL MOUNT VANITY ELEMENT RAFFINÉ COLLECTION
The WetStyle vanity from the Element Raffine collection is a simple solution to any storage or limited space issue that commonly arises in bathrooms. The pull-out drawer offers ample room for a number of bathroom products to be conveniently stored.
Apart from the functionality aspect, it was also easy to fall in love with its modern lines and its soft, natural wood finish. It also offers great versatility with the option to switch out the vanity top, making it customizable to complement your personal style and design aesthetic.
CROSSWATER FORMOSO PETITE TUB WHITE
Many homeowners don’t believe they have the room to add highly coveted freestanding bathtubs to their bathrooms. In general, most designs for these tubs are known to use up a lot of the available square footage. However, this Formoso petite tub from Crosswater is truly unique and has the ability to shine in small spaces.
I also love this 5 foot soaking tub’s clean lines — it blends well with both traditional and more contemporary formats.
CALIFORNIA FAUCETS DESCANSO VESSEL KNURLED FAUCET BURNISHED BRASS
The Descanso knurled faucet from California Faucets calls into play multiple senses. Visually crisp, the faucet design combines modern and industrial influences with its significant brass finish — while the cross-hatched, knurling detail both looks and feels like a natural piece of metal.
