Spend vs. Splurge- Lavatory Faucets

With so many choices available, something as simple as deciding on a faucet for your vanity can seem downright exhausting! Seemingly endless options for style, finish, and price range abound, so we’ve rounded up a quick list of a few of our favorites that fall at various points across the price spectrum.

If you are shopping for a lavatory faucet, be sure to consider the other fixtures in your bathroom and how to best coordinate. Many lines have collections that include lavatory, tub, shower, and accessory options, but with certain lines and finishes, you can pick, choose, and combine.

Love the low-profile look? You certainly can’t go wrong with one of these luxe choices:

Meet the Team Monday- take 1

Getting to know our clients is one of the most enjoyable aspects of our job…and we want to give you the chance to get to know us as well! We are kicking off a new blog series to introduce you to our varied team of professionals, spotlighting a different member each week. It only seemed right to start out with someone who has been a fixture on the Kitchen & Bath Galleries design team from the very beginning… Desi McAlister!

Desi

QUICK BACKGROUND: Desi is originally from High Point, North Carolina, and attended design school in Asheboro. When she made the move to Cary, she worked with TCR Cabinets, the company that eventually merged with Crenshaw TV & Appliance to form Kitchen & Bath Galleries. Desi currently works as a senior designer out of our Cary showroom.

WHAT SHE’S KNOWN FOR: Desi has been featured in numerous publications and articles, and has earned the respect of local builders and customers alike for her close attention to detail and absolute dedication to her job and to her clients. Desi enjoys meeting the challenges that come with creating the perfect design the client envisions while also achieving their idea of the perfect price as well.

HER FAVORITE PRODUCTS: Desi’s personal style is modern to contemporary, and emphasizes function without sacrificing design. She loves mixing countertop surfaces, such as natural stone with concrete, stainless steel, or glass.

IN HER FREE TIME: If you know Desi, you know there is not much of that! When she has the chance, she does love to head to the beach…although you will probably see her in the passenger seat finalizing a drawing or chatting on the phone with a client all the way down and back!

HER ADVICE TO CLIENTS: Don’t be afraid to give your designer an idea of your budget. We can design anything but if we don’t have an understanding of where you would like to be financially we may be headed in the wrong direction to begin with, or we might come up short.
