Last summer, the kind folks at Brizo Faucet Company flew nearly 200 designers and bloggers to Memphis for a reunion of the various "Blogger 19" groups. For 3 or 4 years prior, they had been bringing together small groups of 19 to New York for fashion week and to share their newest products lines. So, the opportunity to all get together and take a tour of the huge Delta/Brizo faucet factory, be wined and dined, see old friends and make some new ones was a one in a million opportunity. As a generous parting gift, we each received our choice of a beautiful new shower head from their Baliza Hydrati 2|1 Shower.
They had demonstrated how their new H20kinetic technology works, which is pretty amazing. You can see it in this video:
The existing handheld faucet in my new little rental cottage was of the very generic plastic variety. The nice thing about shower heads is how easy they are to replace. In my Mom's house last year, the existing hand held needed replacing (there must have been a lot of built-up deposits inside because the flow was practically non-existent) and I used a Kohler rain shower head that I had kicking around. The difference was amazing. As we all know, a great shower can be both invigorating and relaxing - all for a relatively small amount of money.
So, even though I'm in a rental, I didn't hesitate to have my still in the box shower head installed. Not only is it beautiful to look at and immediately upped the look of the shower (good-bye nasty used plastic thing) but I am also treated with a fantastic shower experience. There are difference water settings on the handheld which are activated with the push of a button - versus having to rotate the head - and it easily docs back into the shower head. The water pressure is amazing and yes, as the video says - it's very warm as well. I actually have to keep lowering the heat setting.
Even in a rental or other temporary situation don't hesitate to make some changes that could make a big difference in your daily routine.
