A faucet is a popular name for a water valve, used to control the size of the water flow switch. The replacement of faucets is very fast, from old-style cast iron technology to electroplating knob type, and to stainless steel single temperature single control faucet, stainless steel dual temperature dual control faucet, kitchen semi-automatic faucet.
It is true that faucets are indispensable in our lives, especially in our kitchens and bathrooms. So today, the author of a well-known faucet brand in China based on his visit to the market to understand and summarize the following major trends in faucet development.
Trend 1: The classification is becoming more and more refined
Some people say: Division of labor means progress, and faucets are no exception. Current faucets can be roughly divided into two categories: one is for bathroom faucets, and the other is for kitchen faucets. The single bathroom faucet is divided into several categories such as basin faucet, bathtub faucet, and bidet faucet. And in each category, it can be divided into many small categories according to function, style, material, and color. In the past, the faucet was very simple. No matter the kitchen or the bathroom, only the traditional cast iron faucet was used above the sink; while the shower faucet used in the home and the bathhouse also “the same door”. I am afraid that this phenomenon of “multiple uses of one thing” will “gone away” in the future.
Trend 2: Mixing faucets are popular
The so-called “mixed faucet” refers to a faucet that can mix cold and hot water together and adjust the water temperature. At present, many families have installed water heaters, and a few families have 24-hour hot water supplied by the property. In daily cooking and cleaning, we also have a hot water supply that is “invited”. Therefore, a “mixing faucet” that can mix cold and hot water into warm water has been favored by many consumers.
Trend 3: The function is gradually improved
In order to meet the different needs of consumers, the current faucet also has many functions: for example, the shower faucet for the bathroom has many functions such as massage function, can make the water flow with bubbles, or change the water outlet method, etc., and the unique design of the faucet core design, It is not only resistant to wear and tear, but also has the function of automatically balancing the flow of cold and hot water and constant water temperature.
Trend 4: Various styles
In-home decoration, no one wants to be like others, all hope that the decoration can reflect their own personal characteristics. Therefore, the style of decoration and layout is very important. In order to match these styles, there are many types and styles of faucets. For example, the classic faucet with gold and silver and complicated decoration can be matched with the classic style decoration; the matt color is the main, the avant-garde modern style is used in the modern style space; and the cream is the main, the lines The smooth faucet can be used in almost any light-colored room.
