Even as trends change, consumers are hungry for the style and versatility of matte black
Consumers want beautiful rooms and installers want easier lives—Kalia, a Canadian bathroom and kitchen fixture manufacturer, is making both a reality.
Yvan Savoie, business development manager for Kalia, says the company works to stay connected with the market trends in order to inspire its developments. “We visit different design shows during the year and always work to identify the next trends,” he says. “We also work closely with our customers to meet their needs and wishes.”
Just take a single look at the Basico Bathroom Faucet or SquareOne TD2 Thermostatic Shower System and it is clear why matte black fixtures are making waves. Part of their appeal is versatility. Matte black blends beautifully with the warmth and soft lines in natural materials like marble or granite, and it can also be a crisp complement to glossy or other matter materials.
“Matte black brings warmth and charm to a room,” Savoie says. “It also well in both traditional and modern designs moving away from the all-white minimalist looks to add more contrast.”
The clean aesthetic and sleek lines of a minimalist look are retained but in a more contemporary expression. Kalia’s Control Valve Trim with Integrated Diverter and Koncept Evo 60" x 77" Sliding Shower Door are two more examples of subtle details that serve to elevate any design, in any space.
“Kalia's design center is driven by creativity and innovation,” Savoie says. “We always work to create products that improve the look of a bathroom or a kitchen and offer enhanced functionality.”
As a Canadian company, Kalia knows its market inside and out, and builds products that are as unique as the regions that demand them.
“Each segment of the Canadian market has its own needs and taste,” Savoie says. “We consistently design products that will meet as many regional needs as possible and that meet building code requirements in every region.”
