"Inspire, Motivate, Realize" is the mission at Kiva Kitchen and Bath, with locations in Texas and California. This state-of-the-art showroom caters to professional architects and builders, but still offers valuable service and sales for homeowners. Start here to visualize your kitchen or bathroom remodel and to benefit from the highly trained sales team.
A great resource, Community Home Supply is an extensive showroom of bath and kitchen goods.
This is often the first stop on the list for Chicagoans considering a bathroom or kitchen renovation. The main reason: the selection is very extensive, from the types of items available (a very long list!) to the manufacturers they carry.
CHS is an especially good source for European fixtures and more design-conscious choices that the big box stores just don't touch.
If you are looking for tubs, put Vintage Tub on your list. Started six years ago, it is a family run business in Pennsylvania that wants to corner the market on antique and reproduction bathroom fixtures, faucets, and accessories. Prices run between $900 - $1200 for most tubs, but they do have designer beauts for $3500. Shipping is 5 days. (Thanks, Amy!)
Amy says: Very helpful, good selection. Vintage Tub talked my plumber through his questions. They have new tubs. If you want vintage, talk to the people at Olde Goode Things.
