BlogTourNola Sponsor Spotlight: Blanco Sinks and Faucets - It's all in the details

A longtime BlogTour sponsor is BLANCO, the German manufacturer of finely crafted sinks and faucets, brings style and quality to a new level with their latest collection of faucets.

“Our latest collection of faucets offer livable style,” stated Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “When we say livable style, we are referencing style that leads trends while integrating into any kitchen design. At the same time, we are talking about the faucets’ functionality. Faucets 
are the jewelry of the kitchen. They must be attractive, but they are also the most abused fixtures in the kitchen. That’s why we engineer BLANCO faucets to last, to use less water, to provide unmatched cleaning and to be as easy to use as they are to maintain.” 
BLANCO was one of the hosts of our final dinner together on BlogTourNola at the beautiful Nordic Kitchens & Baths showroom in Metairie, LA. They put together a fun video from the evening, which was also hosted by Poggenpohl and Silestone. Keep your eyes peeled for a quick pic of yours truly. 


From BLANCO's newly released product lineup, I am loving the ALTA compact faucet (which is admittedly a little modern for my usual tastes, but I love the simplicity of this one) and the Napa faucet which is a beautiful piece of sculpture.



ALTA compact faucet comes in wide range of SILGRANIT® II colors and metal finishes and is just the right size for smaller spaces. Features a 128° swivel spout, dual pull-out spray.

For more traditional tastes, there is the Napa faucet which is sinuous and sleek at the same time - it has gentle curving lines, but with durability built in. Dual spray available in polished chrome and satin nickel. 



One of my favorite products from BLANCO is the beautiful Fireclay apron front sink. The newest material in luxury is actually centuries old. Made of authentic fireclay, the exclusive BLANCO CERANA™ is durable, beautiful, and versatile. This is a reversible sink is a perfect fit for both traditional and contemporary kitchens. Above is the more traditional rounded "farmhouse" style sink and below is the more integrated modern look. Two in one - a great idea! Boston blogger Erin Gates just showed her BLANCO Gerana sink in her new kitchen remodel. It's a great look. And I'm thinking this is going to make a great addition to my virtual Dream House design project as well.


A huge thanks again to BLANCO for sponsoring BlogTourNola - it's been a great experience getting to know everyone involved!
