@DeltaFaucet New Showroom in Chicago and My Powder Room Remodel

My powder room is only 7 feet by 3 feet, but wow, I could pack a lot of outdated, ugly into those 21 square feet!  Step in Delta Faucet.  My knights in shining armor!  I was fortunate to attend the grand opening of the new Delta Dream2O showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart and start dreaming of a new look for my old, ugly bathroom.  Adding a new faucet to your bathroom can make a tremendous change.  Maximum impact for a minimum price.  The showroom is called Dream 2O for good reason!

If you are remodeling a bathroom, designing a new space or just looking for a new faucet and live in the Chicago area, I have to encourage you to visit the Delta showroom in the Merchandise Mart.  Wow.  It will blow you away.  It is over 3,000 square feet.  All the Delta faucets are there and they are all plumbed for running water so you can actually try them to see the water flow.  How cool is that?  Seriously, isn’t it difficult to choose a faucet when you can’t try it?

“The Dream2O showroom was designed to be a one-of-kind space where visitors can see for themselves what makes Delta and Brizo products stand out,” said Susan Fisher, vice president of marketing for Delta Faucet Company.  “From the sound and feel of a laminar flow ribbon faucet, to the size of water droplets coming from our showerheads featuring H2O kinetic Technology and the sensitivity of our touch-activated faucets, the working units and technology within the space were intended to appeal to senses and offer more information about the products than just how they look.”

Someday… *oops* sorry, I’m dreaming again…  In the Dream 2O showroom, there is a huge interactive touch screen (9 feet by 3 feet) – similar to a gigantic iPad on the wall.  You can upload a picture of your sink/vanity and then pull in different faucets to see how they look.  It’s so futuristic and fun!  There are even iPads that you can borrow and use to read about faucet features as you tour the showroom.  This is high tech with a purpose.

The Dream2O showroom is also “green”.  The showroom was designed to reflect the company’s commitment to sustainability.  Bamboo floors, recycled carpet – ninety percent of the materials used throughout the space are recycled, recyclable, or sustainable .  On a fun note, even the mannequin arms used in the showroom’s front window were rescued from a “used mannequin” store!

I am so excited because we repainted and redecorated our first floor, powder room!  I can’t wait to show you.Unfortunately, my bathroom was beyond just changing the faucet and we decided to go with a complete change.  A new toilet (as a former volleyball player with bad knees, I love the taller seat!), new paint, a new vanity and sink and the piece de resistance?  A beautiful, new faucet from Delta.  The first time we had company over, the thing they talked about the most of the entire new bathroom was the faucet!

Here is the *blush* awful “Before” picture of my powder room.  Better things to come :)  Including a giveaway for you!  Delta Faucet is going to sponsor a giveaway of one of their amazing faucets for a KLY reader – stay tuned!

    I like the Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Touch kitchen faucet….you just touch it anywhere & it comes on automatically. BTW, your new bathroom sink & faucet are beautiful!

  5. 7

    I think it’s great that you could try the faucets before you try them.

    What a great transformation it looks like a different bathroom.Love your style so modern

  7. 9

    Yeah not too cute but a few minor updates and some paint I’m sure really changed the room. I love the look of delta faucets but also the quality.

    This would be a great way to see how things would look before you buy.

    Wow, what a cool looking showroom! I like the feature about the 3D designing of the vanity and faucet. That’s great that they will let you borrow ipads to learn more about Delta :)

    I really like that the showroom has actual working faucets. I think it would be much easier to choose when you can actually use the faucet.

    I’m coming from the post with the after picture and WOW!!!!!! It looks absolutely AMAZING!!!! I wish I lived there so I could go to the showroom too. We are building a house (well it’s a shop that’s half house and half shop) in two years when my daughter graduates high school. My husband has land that is down the road from my parents and next to his mamaw so it’s a great place for us to move. And it also means I get to rescue lots more animals!!!!! YAY!!! Anyway, sorry, I have started planning and looking and am so overwhelmed. Sheesh!

    I hate those little counter tops! And I love the end result!

    It’s amazing what new faucets can do to update a bathroom or kitchen. Your remodel is lovely.

  29. 31

    I love that they have the interactive screen in the showroom where you can see what the different faucets would look like. It makes the decision so much easier. I love the final look of your bathroom and think you made great choices.

    We’re redoing our master bath right now and are still in the demo stages. This post is the perfect inspiration I need to figure out what faucets I should use in the space we have. I especially love that the showroom was green. Makes it easier to go with a company who cares about our environment.

    Wowza! I would love to use that showroom to finish my upstairs bathroom. The interactive screen is way cool. I have a hard time picturing the finished product sometimes so that would be awesome for me. Your bathroom looks AMAZING btw.

    Working faucets in a showroom is a brilliant idea! It’s so hard to guess how a faucet would “feel” by looking at one mounted on a showroom shelf.

    Your remodel looks great but I have to say it isn’t just the faucet that improves it. The new vanity and basin really make an impact.
