A new wave of thinking is creeping into the minds of modern home architects. Apparently great minds do think alike, because I am partial to creating more counter space by exploring new places for the kitchen and bath faucet. As it stands now, it just seems to be getting in the way too often.
But these new schemes are messing with my head. One faucet is inside the sink and another is concealed in the wall. And they don’t stop there. An Italian company keeps their controls completely out of sight. What’s going on here? Let’s take a peek at the future and tour a few of the best concealed faucets.
Joseph Dirand Design
Not all concealed faucets are created equal. Some are made of marble, like the one created by architect Joseph Dirand. This ornate sink comes with hot and cold levers and a goose neck faucet. In a weird twist, the faucet is built directly into the basin of the sink, providing plenty of counter space.
Absens Concealed Faucet
This little Italian beauty is built into the wall and all of the controls are behind a push panel cover in the wall. You can’t see the hidden faucet, which could be the best reason to buy it.
And the best one of them all could be a very cool looking wall mounted faucet, from Rohl Bath. This is clearly an ultra modern homerun, even though I wasn’t sure what it was by looking at it.
