While beauty is a top priority in the kitchen or bath, the newest faucets and fixtures—available in an array of design styles to match a variety of home decors—are equipped and supported by powerful and efficient plumbing equipment behind the scenes. Here are a few examples of new products for home water systems, both for in the wall and in the living space.


The Frank Lloyd Wright Collection, created in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, features bath fixtures designed to incorporate the architect’s six principles of organic architecture: simplicity, individuality, belonging, palette, substance, and integrity. This is reflected in the collection’s mix of metallic and warm wood materials and innovative geometric arrangements. The product suite includes lavatory faucets, featuring a side-mounted water flow from a rectangular spout; tub fillers; shower systems; bath accessories; and a rectangular single-function raincan showerhead with integrated lighting. brizo.com


New garbage disposals and sump pumps provide a “full line” of plumbing products for residential customers, according to the manufacturer. The garbage disposals are powered by a 1700-rpm magnet DC motor, available in ½ or ¾ horsepower depending on need, and measures 7 inches in diameter to preserve under-sink space. The sump pumps feature a ½ horsepower continuous duty operation motor, permanent split capacitor, and integrated thermal protection switch. speakman.com

California Faucets

The D Street Bath Collection aims for a “casual-yet-modern” aesthetic with a choice of atypical design elements, says the manufacturer. Altogether, the modular line enables up to 500 different design configurations. Options for the all-brass collection include three spout styles, three sizes, two handle styles (Stick, a cylindrical handle, or Tang, a geometric option), and a series of textured handle inserts in knurled, smooth, or carbon fiber textures. Each is available in a choice of 28 color finishes. californiafaucets.com


Inspired by the look of theatrical spotlights, the Spotwater Collection of swiveling tubular showerheads features a sleek, unconventional silhouette that pairs well with minimalist spaces, according to the manufacturer. Each showerhead is available in a choice of four different aerators for custom water flow, including rain, mist, waterfall, and multispray. Finish options include an array of textures in copper, aged bronze, polished nickel, antique brass, and shades of white, black, and gold. gessi.com

New designs include Stones, with openings arranged in a soft pebble pattern to create an earthy aesthetic, and Deco, defined by sharp, geometric lines made to align with tile trends. Both are available in the existing brushed and polished stainless steel finishes, plus a suite of new finishes: brushed and polished gold; polished rose gold; oil-rubbed bronze; and matte and polished black. quickdrain.com

Principle Faucets

The all-brass Konrad kitchen faucet offers a sleek, modern aesthetic, operable either via integrated hand lever or the manufacturer’s foot pedal system, which allows users to control the faucet without touching it directly. Tapping the pedal once will enable continuous water flow for up to two minutes or until the pedal is tapped again. The Konrad is available in a chrome, brushed nickel, or matte black finish, and features a high-arch spout with 180 degrees of rotation, as well as a pull-down sprayhead. principlefaucets.com


The True Blue FLEX is Dearborn’s latest addition to the True Blue Bath Waste line, equipped with flexible and adjustable tubing intended as an alternative to PVC. This, according to the manufacturer, allows installers to overcome jobsite obstructions such as floor joists, severely sloped walls, or misaligned or offset drains. The pipe is available in 16- and 24-inch lengths, made to fit both standard and whirlpool tub depths. Both lengths are offered in full or rough kits, with toe-touch, uni-lift, or push-and-pull stopper options. oatey.com

Newport Brass

The new industrial-style Clemens, Griffey, and Pardees solid brass bath collections incorporate textured elements for increased visual interest, the manufacturer says. Clemens, available in a choice of lever or cross handles, features crosshatched designs rolled into the levers and accent points. Griffey’s handles and spout feature rough-cast texture insets, and the Pardees collection’s coin edges evoke mechanical gears against an otherwise minimalist design. Each collection is available in a choice of 25 finishes. newportbrass.com
