Brizo Review

kitchen lightingBrizo is a luxury bathroom, kitchen fixture and shower brand that hosts fashion designer Jason Wu. He has created a collection for the company, inspired by midcentury design, which evokes his style ethos on the runway. Brizo’s concept is that luxury is beyond the clothes you wear—it is an entire lifestyle, and their company seeks to bring luxurious design to your home. They have a wide variety of interesting faucets that they insist are more like “works of art”, and their shower systems look very luxurious. But are they right for you?

A Closer Look at their Brand

While the idea of bringing luxury into your home sounds great in theory, their website seems to place value on image over substance. We have a sneaking suspicion that this concept may be reflected not only in their stated mission statement, but in the quality of their products. The image of these products dazzle, but are they truly well-made and structurally sound, or is it just the image of a good product? If you value honesty, integrity in the way a product is made and the artistry of beautiful design, you would state this explicitly on your site. You are creating a brand and image with your public mission statement, and their statement reflects a kind of superficiality that does not lend confidence in the product you are receiving.

Our Recommendation: Try Cautiously, or Not at All

We think that the designs they offer could be found on site like our for the public and contractors to purchase. They are not particularly unique or focused on artisanship or the beauty of design, but on the superficiality of image over substance. Brizo is more of a luxury bathroom fixture company and will be more flashy then your average fixture company.

Brasstech Review

Samuel Heath's Royal Crown Derby CollectionBrasstech is a producer of kitchen and bathroom faucets, plus shower technology, and is in showrooms in thousands of locations throughout the country. They have a Newport Brass and Ginger luxury collection selling accessories, and thousands of options and styles including contemporary, traditional, transitional, and universal. Their selections are beautifully designed and are relatively reasonably priced. They’re a midrange option when it comes to money spent. So are they worth the investment? This review will look closer at how customers feel about this company and the integrity of the product.

The Product and the Company

Based on the online reviews of their faucets and products, their products are great. Most of their products come with a generous warranty of ten years or more. The warranty of course covers manufacturing defects but does not cover normal wear and tear. Many customers’ kitchen faucets have lasted a long time.

Should You Go with Brasstech?

It’s important to keep all this in mind when considering Brasstech. They are a big company, with the attendant big company problems. Big companies don’t necessarily have the best made products or helpful customer service, so this should be kept in mind when considering where to get bathroom and kitchen faucets. It’s unfortunate that many of the more affordable faucet companies get these kinds of reputations, but sometimes you get what you pay for. Be sure to do your own research online before making the decision to buy bathroom fixtures from a company, because if you make a mistake in this regard, it could prove expensive

Trendy Kitchen Design Ideas

This-Vigo-Pull-Down-Culinary-Style-Kitchen-Faucet-Will-Add-An-Instant-Wow-Factor-To-Any-KitchenHaving a trendy kitchen is something that everyone wants to go through with. You want to make sure that the kitchen design is something that stands out, but is also something that is functional and able to help you get the needs that you have done. With the right kitchen sink and counter tops, you can have just about anything you could possibly want within your kitchen area. You can make sure to get much more from the kitchen design when you think about what it is that you’d like from it, while you’re also considering the size and style at the same time.

The Many Ways Your Kitchen Can Be Your Own 

With many ways that your kitchen design can become your own, you’re able to take the next step and make it happen. Consider the kitchen design that you want to have. Know the colors, the materials and the lay out so that you can fully understand what has to be done in order to make your kitchen design a real life thing that you can use. When you work with someone that can do this, you can feel good about the change that you made. This is not something that you wouldn’t be able to get from just anyone.

Consider purchasing the highest in quality kitchen materials from the right place. From here, you can then get the kitchen design that you want, and set up the kitchen anyway that you’d like. Consider the amount of cupboards, counters, and table space you’d like. You also want to consider what you would do with the extra space that might be in the room for your kitchen design. You want to then take the next step and make the most of what they are providing you with. Make the change, do the work, and feel good about your kitchen design ideas.
