It may be a bit unseemly to do a post on lavatory fixtures; but since I haven't had much to praise lately here inside Hellwood, it's amazing how a functioning toilet can help flush away a bad mood.
It's great that the electric issues are getting straightened out, and now I no longer have to use a pail of water to flush the toilet.
I love the design of the Kohler Hatbox toilet; but it does require an electric connection in order to activate the flushing mechanism.
Ours was defective (what else is new?) and Kohler had to send a rep, to switch out some parts.
What I love about this toilet, is that the simple and elegant style not only makes it easy on the eyes; it makes it easy to clean! At the risk of being indelicate; it's also the most comfortable model I have ever encountered. And being that I'm also concerned about our guests comforts, I put one in the main powder room too.
The Hatbox toilet is certainly a splurge, so it was great to have saved a on another important fixture; the sinks.
I had practically driven myself crazy looking for the perfect sink. I couldn't make a commitment; but upon learning the cost of the Quartz counter material, I made up my mind pretty darn fast.
I couldn't be happier with my choice! This sink is an absolute pleasure to use. It is such a great design; I can't believe this "Ledges" sink,is one of Kohler's lower priced models.
The ledges come in very handy to place your toilette articles while you carry out your various routines. I can imagine someone who wears contact lens, finding this sink a dream.
It's large enough that you don't find water splashing all over the place, and I never have to wipe up the counter afterwards.
Every time I use this sink, I never fail to say to myself, "I love this sink."
Too bad I can't say the same about this house!
