This ongoing section focuses in on some of the best new faucets and some tips.
Before we start, let me remind you of two important things that we learned in previous issues - first that there are two types of spouts: open channel spout (where you can see the water as it come down the spout), and closed spout (where you can see the water only as it leaves the spout) - both seen below left. Second, that many faucet styles are available as ‘single hole’ (where the hot/cold handle(s) are part of the faucet) or ‘4" centre / 8" centre’ (where the hot/cold handles are not part of the faucet but rather sit to either side) - both seen below right. With this info in tow ... let’s move on.
Well, Spring issue saw us explore the ever growing world of KOHLER, this issue I decided to re-visit the amazing world of Riobel. So I called my colleague Carol Lavery at the beautiful North Vancouver showroom for The Ensuite. I’ve been to others, but I personally find that The Ensuite has the best selection and more importantly the best people (you definitely want to get to know Carol’s associates Robina Rahimtulla and Julia Templeton). They really take their time with you and are extremely knowledgeable with regards to their faucets. ‘Tell me why you stand behind Riobel?’ I asked Carol. ‘Because Riobel stands behind their products.’ she replied without hesitation. ‘In my experience they are one of the best, and fastest, at resolving any challenge that my customers may have with one of their faucets. Then she added ‘And Riobel recently introduced an amazing collection they call Momenti’. It is somewhat unique in that you can choose a spout and then combine it with a variety of the 4 different handles seen below. I quickly came to realize why Carol was so excited. The proof is in the pudding, right? No, the proof is in the photograph ... enjoy!
I have endeavored to list the faucet combinations below as accurate and descriptive as possible but it would be wise to give the ladies at the North Vancouver Ensuite a call for more information and a list of all of the other combinations available in the Riobel MOMENTI line.
