17 modern bathroom faucets that'll make you say WHOA #Shopping#bathrooms June 22 | Megan Finley meganfinley If you're thinking of re-doing your bathroom, or just like to check out fun modern fixtures, this roundup of modern faucets has your name on it. Some of these faucets have the magical power of transforming your bathroom into a Zen garden, and some make it look like you're washing your hands on the Starship Enterprise — like this Frisbee faucet with temperature-sensitive color changing LED lights. A LOT of these are ridiculously expensive, some of them are surprisingly affordable, and I don't think any of them are particularly eco-friendly or low-flow. BUT! All of them are gonna make you say WHOA! Source: betterlivingthroughdesign.com via megan on Pinterest Check out this hack for turning your modern bathroom faucet into a towel rack! Would you believe this faucet is on sale for $24! That's a lot of awesome for not a lot of dollars. My jaw dropped when I saw this one. Wow, what an impact — it's like a sci-fi waterfall! They call this the "fan" faucet… for obvious reasons. Related Post Skull-covered damask shower curtain We featured a skull-filled bathroom a couple weeks ago, and for those of you who were inpsired, I thought this $22 skull-covered damask shower curtain... Read more This faucet has a LOT of wow-factor to it — wall mounted, waterfall spout, and color-changing LED lights. I love the combo of chrome and glass on this modern, Zen-like waterfall faucet. This one almost looks like an MC Escher piece. I used a faucet just like this, and I can't tell you the thrill it gave me. Yes, I'm a nerd. But it was so AWESOME! I also love the "joystick" action on this minimal and super modern faucet. Speaking of minimalist, who needs a faucet at all! Just have water flow directly from your bathroom mirror. The Fluid faucet reminds me of jumping off a diving board. It also comes with that neat extender (pictured above) for taller sink bowls. Wow, I don't even know how you turn this thing on! But I know that once you do, you have three different LED colors that light up. Blue is my favorite though. This one just simply looks like two pipes intersecting. But it's so much more than that! It's an eco-friendly automatic faucet, utilizing less than 0.8 gallons per cycle, while a hydro-powered turbine charges the power supply during usage eliminating the need for battery replacement or consumption of external electrical power for up to 10 years.

You can also easily achieve the fun look of a modern LED faucet on ANY bathroom fixture with this screw-on LED light from Think Geek.

The LED lights underneath the surface vary their intensity and color based on the flow and temperature of the water. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

My friend growing up had a faucet like the one on sale and I always thought it was neat. 3 agree Reply I work for a kitchen and bath renovation company and as a result I'm a HUGE faucet-geek. My favourite ones are from Aquabrass, they've got this one that's both a faucet AND a flower vase…ridiculously overpriced but SO FREAKING PRETTY. http://www.aquabrass.com/products/flower-41116/?cur_tid=119 5 agree Reply ER MER GERD!!!!! That's ridonkulously cool. 4 agree Reply I love the architectonic one, if you knew a welder you could totally get one diyed. Though its a little more Liebeskind than F.L.W. Nice inspiration pics, especially since I want to tear out my bathroom so bad. *sigh* 4 agree Reply Holy Crapsville! These are amazing! 6 agree Reply KILLIN' ME. 3 agree Reply I have this bamboo faucet and I LOVES it. 4 agree Reply YES! My parents have that faucet in their home on Maui. I LOOOOVE it so much. I never knew a faucet could bring me that much happiness. 3 agree Reply This is the one I'm putting in my bathroom…it's not as fancy as the ones in this article but it's got major curves, like Joan from Mad Men kinda curves. http://www.pfisterfaucets.com/Bath/Product/F-042-JDCC.aspx 3 agree Reply Oooooh, me likey! 3 agree Reply I've had the Thinkgeek one for a few years. It even turns purple when the water's lukewarm! It seems to provide almost endless fascination for guests, too! 3 agree Reply Awesome! I think the first one is my favorite. To me, the one without a faucet at all looks like the mirror is taking a leak though! haha 5 agree Reply That's exactly what I was thinking! 3 agree Reply That Think Geek one totally looks like a tiny lightsaber. Hands and lightsabers are traditionally a bad combination but I still love it. I'd also love to see how cats would react to colour changing streams of water. They seem fascinated by regular sinks so it'd be fun to add an extra suprise to the mix! 4 agree Reply Now I want a house with, like, ten bathrooms just so I can have a different faucet in every room. 10 agree Reply That last one could be a potentially great adaptive aid for low vision! I can never see the writing on faucets, but if the faucet lit up to tell me if it was hot or cold, it might actually help! 5 agree Reply Love the think geek one. 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
