New Sink & Spout Showroom in Lowell is highlighted by Robern, Kallista and Kohler as a “Flagship Showroom,” along with many other company firsts.
Sink & Spout’s newly remodeled showroom in Lowell, Massachusetts is distinguished in many ways, not the least of which is being recognized by a trifecta of world-class luxury brands as a flagship showroom. “We are delighted to be distinguished by three of the industry’s most respected bath, kitchen and lighting brands,” said Sink & Spout Director of Showrooms Dan Lorenz. The number of on-trend new displays of their products inspired each brand to recognize Sink & Spout Lowell in this unique way.
The 5,600-square-foot showroom has successfully served the area’s homeowners for two decades; however, it was time for a complete remodel. The process took two years, as the expert showroom team continued to serve customers while each quadrant of the showroom was demolished and redesigned. “It was surely a challenge, but the final result is totally worth it,” said Marianne Fox, a veteran showroom manager for the company, who ushered through stellar sales and noteworthy service during the remodeling project. “We are very excited to have so many new displays, with many of them offering working displays demonstrating everything from shower systems, bidet toilets, kitchen faucets, steam showers and more.”
The new showroom combines wide vistas of hundreds of bath, kitchen and lighting products with intimate shops dedicated to specific installations including a stunning Kohler navy and gold bathroom, dozens of inspiring sink, vanity, medicine cabinet and lighting vignettes. There are entire walls of distinctive House of Rohl bathroom fixtures showing various styles and finishes. In addition, designers and homeowners find freestanding and built-in tubs made of every conceivable material from cast iron and Kohler’s Lithocast to Bain Ultra’s quality acrylic and Victoria + Albert’s Englishcast® volcanic limestone and more. Kallista’s new Argile (pronounced “ar-geel”) freestanding bathtub and vessel sink are front and center, giving New Englanders one of the first chances to see the unique collaboration of Kallista and Workshop/APD, an awarding-winning New York design and architectural firm. “If you’re a bather, this is the place to compare your options,” confirms Lorenz. “Experiencing these tubs in person, feeling the finishes, seeing them installed and understanding the trade-offs helps homeowners make the right choice for their lifestyle.”
For those more interested in showering, Lowell is the place to see the widest assortment of shower wall installations, including their newest solid surface option, Tyvarian by Syn Mar, which blends natural materials like marble, onyx and granite with resin to create a beautiful surface that is easy to clean and maintain. You’ll also discover 13 shower door style options, which offer a range of price points to consider, and shower fixtures and systems that range from the traditional showerhead to advanced digital body spray systems that offer unique therapeutic benefits. The icing on the cake is a surprising selection of bath and shower accessories for aging in place, including a flip down shower seat that is made of the same material used in BMW car seating, offering a beautiful, durable seat that is softer than teak or stainless steel alternatives.
In a first, the Lowell showroom has a unique closet where plumbers and interested homeowners can “see inside the wall” to the installation of valving for today’s advanced shower systems. “Even experienced plumbers tell us that they often need a tutorial on the installation requirements for the latest showers,” explained Lorenz, “so we placed the plumbing for our working displays in an easy-access closet on the display floor that can be reviewed by those needing this information. It’s much more understandable than reading a manual.”
Sink & Spout Lowell is also the site for another company premiere: whole house lighting. Sink & Spout’s showrooms have long displayed Kohler’s lighting products, and Lowell is now premiering Sink & Spout's new whole-home lighting collection by Hinkley with a sparkling array of chandeliers, pendants and flush and semi-flush fixtures for every room in the house. The sparkle of these illuminated lights in every corner of the showroom gives it a luster never seen before in Lowell and exemplifies how light will be delivered by these fixtures in a person’s home. “Lighting is so important when designing a room,” offered Karen Nappa of Nappa Interiors on a recent visit to the showroom. “So many times, my clients can only see a lighting fixture online or in a catalog and seeing them in person makes all the difference in making decisions about this very important part of any room design.” Nappa is also delighted with Sink & Spout’s new private designer conference area, where designers and their clients can sit in a quiet space and collaborate on their projects, close to fixture samples, finish boards and Sink & Spout showroom associates who are always on hand to answer questions.
Sink & Spout says it’s “everything you expect and a whole lot more,” and that has never been truer than in this new Lowell showroom. The showroom is open six days a week and visitors are welcome to stop by and browse or make an appointment to discuss their project plans in detail.
