Faucet Love and a Fabulous Giveaway

Earlier this summer, I was asked by Moen if I would accept and review one of their gorgeous faucets, called the 90 Degree.  I, of course, being a faucet hound and loving Moen products, agreed at once.

Isn’t she a sophisticated beauty in all her brushed nickel glory.

As sparkly and pretty as the chrome is, I chose the brushed nickel finish as I wanted to install it in my daughter’s bathroom and she has brushed nickel handles and fixtures in there already.

Some photos from Moen’s website. I particularly like the second one ūüôā

With it’s sleek modern style, it would fit right into any contemporary or modern bath. ¬†I love square forms so I’m particularly pleased with this faucet and as the hardware in my daughter’s bath is also square, it fit the bill perfectly.

Once it arrived and hubby went to install it, he and I both commented on how heavy and durable it feels, a great plus in my book as the items that you touch daily should be substantial and well made.

This is where I am supposed to show you photos of how great the faucet looks installed in my daughter’s bathroom. ¬†However, as in real life, not all installs go smoothly, and once he had removed the old one handle faucet (builder grade) we saw that instead of the one hole in the sink that we envisioned, we actually had three holes! Very close together but still three holes! ¬†And of course, I hadn’t ordered the larger deck plate to cover three holes, I only had the smaller plate for one hole.

So, the plate is on order and you’ll see the installed faucet in a future post….very, very soon…I promise.

In the meantime, let’s talk about modern and contemporary bathrooms.¬†Here’s my tips for creating a serene and modern bath:

1. Limit the number of finishes and repeat them.  For example, use the same tile for the shower and floor, even in different shapes or size it will still read as repeating

2. Square it off, in fixtures, hardware and sinks.

3. Clean front cabinetry with no moulding or ornamentation

4. Hidden or clean lined hardware

5. Glass shower walls

6. Limited colour palette, keep it simple. Less is more in modern styling.
