On Tuesday I revealed our marble and glass tile bathroom makeover, and today I’m gushing about the awesome kid friendly bathroom fixtures we selected. A couple of years ago I was invited by Delta Faucet to visit their headquarters and get a behind the scenes look at their products and brand. Since that experience I’ve become obsessed with the technology behind Delta products. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if they told me all of their research and development team members were currently parents of young children. Or running a daycare on the side.
Disclosure: This project was a partnership with Delta Faucet. All opinions are 100% my own.
Let’s start with my favorite kid-friendly faucet in the universe.
The model we chose is the Addison which is beautiful, but what really makes my mom heart sing is its Touch2O.xt technology. I raved about this technology two years ago, and I’m still raving about it today. Not only does it feature Delta Faucet’s patented Touch2O technology (which means you can tap it anywhere to turn it on and off) – it also has the “xt” which I’m pretty sure stands for extra awesome. How I like to describe it is that basically there’s a 4″ force field around the entire faucet. If you get within 4” of the faucet it turns on. Move out of its force field and it turns off. No touching required!
Kate is notorious for getting distracted and keeping the water running while she’s washing her hands or brushing her teeth. I love that this faucet automatically shuts off while her hands aren’t underneath it – no more wasted water and no more micromanaging her time at the sink! If you have kids, this technology is about as exciting as the day you realize they’re fully potty trained.
Next up – bath time. Can somebody please tell me at what age they can start washing their own hair? I’ve tried with Kate, but she gets way too enthusiastic about conditioner and ends up looking like a ’90s Johnny Depp. Until she masters that whole concept of rinsing, it’s mine and G’s job, and it used to suck big time. Kate hates getting water in her face so hair washing was always a bedtime battle for us – but (wait for it) not anymore!
We installed Delta Faucet’s In2ition® Two-In-One Arm Mounted Shower for her bath tub shower and ever since that day hair washing for the youngest member of our family has been fuss-free! The center of the shower head detaches so I can easily and quickly rinse Kate’s hair while controlling the direction of the water so it doesn’t get in her face. No more water in her eyes or endless cup scoops and pours. It also has a pause feature which I use to stop the flow of water while I’m lathering her up instead of needing to shut the water off, shampoo, turn it back on again, find the right temperature, and rinse. It’s so convenient! It also helps prevent her bathtub from getting too full or too cold with all the extra water running. One more thing I appreciate about the In2ition? That detachable shower head makes washing and rinsing the tile surround ridiculously easy.
In addition to its In2ition® technology, this shower head also features Delta Faucet’s H2Okinetic® Technology. See how there are only a few holes in the shower head photo above? You might be fooled into thinking it’ll feel like the kind of disappointing drizzle you get at a cheap hotel, but you’d be wrong. With Delta Faucet’s H2Okinetic® Technology the water actually comes out of the shower head in a spiral pattern (true story) so you get the feeling of more water while you’re actually using less.
It’s pretty much one of those things you have to see to believe:
If you’re in the market for some kid friendly bathroom fixtures, cringing over your water bill, or pretty sure you’ll lose your mind if you have to say “Turn the water off – YOU’RE WASTING IT!” one more time, we highly recommend giving Delta Faucets and their amazing technology a try.
