If being stuck inside all day for weeks has triggered your desire for a bathroom remodel, kitchen redesign, or even a full-on home renovation, then you’ve come to the right place. Facets of Lafayette is your one-stop-shop for any lighting, appliance, plumbing, or fixture needs. You’re sure to find a brand or product that speaks to you when you visit our showroom floor, due to the substantial amount of brands that we carry. But perhaps your goal is to start small and build your way up to the more costly or taxing areas of your house; your best option in this scenario is to start with the bathroom.  

We could go on forever talking about our favorite bathroom sink supplies, color schemes, and overall design choices. But if the thought of remodeling or renovating feels overwhelming, then pick a specific area that you want to tackle. For example, you can tackle the bathroom sink faucets, then move on to the bathtub and shower. Or maybe pick out your countertop preferences, then move on to the cabinetry. Construct your vision, research your ideas, or even give us a call to discuss your thoughts. 

When it comes to plumbing fixtures and appliances, 2 of the most popular brands include Delta and Kohler.  

Delta vs. Kohler

The Delta Faucet Company is a worldwide leader in faucets, flush valves, and related accessories. Not only do they offer quality bathroom sink faucets, but they also offer kitchen faucets, showerheads, and even toilet seats. Delta also owns a luxury line that acts as a completely separate identity, yet still operates under the Delta Faucet Company: Brizo. Brizo faucets are differentiated by their elegance, eco-friendliness, and overall pleasing aesthetic. Kohler has a longer history than Delta, as the company was founded in 1873 compared to Delta’s 1954. Like Delta, Kohler is a world leader in the plumbing fixtures market, and also offers many product categories, including kitchen sinks, bathroom faucets, and related accessories.  

Comparison on the basis of price, quality, construction, and design will ultimately depend on what buyers are seeking, as both brands maintain their integrity on these features. There are multiple finishes to choose from, prices continually vary, and the products uphold their value on both sides. So what truly sets apart Delta and Kohler? It ultimately comes down to consumer opinions, but more-so brand preference and availability. Some buyers choose to purchase Delta because they believe Kohler is more expensive, while others buy Kohler because they’ve heard Delta is poorly made. Opinions will undeniably vary on both sides, but as stated, brand preference and availability play the biggest role in customer’s choices. Whenever you walk into a plumbing fixture store, you may just want whatever is available. Even though we can order the faucet of your dreams and have it shipped, you may just really need a bathroom sink faucet at the moment, so you buy based on convenience.
