I know I’m not even finished with My Living Room Makeover yet, but I’m already starting to think about working on my kitchen before summer is over. I’m just so ambitious this year!
After looking at over 100 houses over 2 years, we finally found the perfect home for us in 2010. We purchased our first home and got the keys, literally 3 days after my son was born. We started moving in that day. This house was one of the first houses we looked at that didn’t need a major overhaul in the kitchen. Almost every other house we looked at that was within our budget, was ONLY within our budget because it needed the kitchen gutted. Or the kitchen had already been gutted and there was nothing but a bare room with plumbing. So needless to say, I was pretty happy that this kitchen was move-in ready. All I did was paint the walls and then moved everything in.
Over the last couple years, we’ve done little upgrades in the kitchen like changing the light fixtures from hideous brass and etched glass globes to bronze and frosted glass fixtures. We’ve also changed out the aged and discolored brass cabinets knobs with sleek bronze ones. Last December, I purchased a new Samsung 26 cu. ft. Side by Side Black Refrigerator to match our other black appliances in the kitchen. So slowly but surely, we’ve been making little upgrades and living with the things we aren’t super crazy about… like the faucet and kitchen sink.
Our faucet and sink is ugly, old, out-dated and I hate it even more than I hate the burgundy laminate counter tops. Not only is it aesthetically unpleasing, it’s doesn’t function well at all. Last week, it started leaking again and it doesn’t seem to be taking well to our repair either. It’s also extremely hard to turn it for some reason. My husband has taken this stupid faucet apart at least 3 or 4 times since we’ve moved in trying to make it usable and it really is on it’s last leg… It’s time for a change!!!!
A while back, I heard about Delta Faucet Touch2O Technology and fell in love with the idea of being able to just tap the faucet to turn it on. What a genius invention! I’m sure someone who was a compulsive cleaner came up with the idea to help keep the faucet free from excessive finger prints, dirt, water, grime, etc. At least I think that’s the biggest bonus! Goes to show where my priorities are, right?
About Touch2O Technology:
With Touch2O Technology, a simple tap anywhere on the faucet spout, hub or handle activates the flow of water. An automatic shut off stops the flow after four minutes to prevent waste when water is not needed. Touch2O Technology relies on the science of capacitance to detect human touch.
Much like smart phones, ATM machines, tablets, computers and other devices that employ this type of touch technology, Delta Faucet Touch2O Technology is highly responsive and reliable. And unlike infrared sensors, outside factors such as lighting conditions, skin and clothing color and mirrors or reflections do not interfere with the sensing capability.
Automatic shut off after 4 minutes of running helps prevent water waste.
Yup, I’m sold. Sign me up! I need one of these babies in my kitchen, stat. But so many beautiful styles to choose from… which one would best fit the kitchen I wanted to create?
I decided to take the DELTA Inspired Living “What My Style?” Quiz to help determine which faucet I should go with. It asked multiple choice questions like which chandelier I liked best and what teapot would I choose. My results determined that my style is “Transitional”.
The next test I took was the Find your Kitchen ID quiz. Five easy questions and they determined that my kitchen is a SHOWPIECE! Hahaha I wish. In an ideal world, my kitchen would be spotless and a showpiece, but my family members don’t allow me to keep it like that for more than 30 minutes. Then it’s back to looking… used. *sigh*
If you are considering upgrading your kitchen or bathroom, head over to the Delta Faucet website and check out their Inspired Living page to take the quizzes and get inspiration for your next big project.
I have an idea of what I want my kitchen to look like but I will have to spend a few hours on houzz and pinterest to add some more kitchen design ideas to my Inspired Living board on Pinterest. However, I was able to decide that I definitely want the Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Touch2O® Technology in Venetian® Bronze. It also comes in Artic Stainless, Chrome and Champagne Bronze™.
Gorgeous, right? I can’t wait to start designing my whole kitchen around this sleek and stylish faucet! Now I just need to find a new sink to match and start thinking about countertops… Hmmmm….
I can’t wait to get my new Delta Touch2O Faucet to arrive so I can start my Mini Kitchen Makeover! Head over to the Delta Faucet website and check out the faucets and I guarantee you’ll be inspired to remodel your kitchen too!
