Caroma’s first extensive range of kitchen mixers is the perfect balance of Australian design and modern functionality.
March 15th, 2022
The kitchen is the lifeblood of any space, be it a home or office – a warm, inviting place that encourages people to relax, have a chat over a coffee or enjoy a meal together. It can be used as an impromptu meeting room, or as the new water cooler, and is the space where people make connections or feel part of the team. The multi-purpose nature of modern kitchens requires designers to carefully consider each aspect of the space, from its function and convenience to its colour combinations and style.
Choosing the right tapware plays a vital role in not only making a kitchen functional and efficient, but also in creating an environment that is suited to the personal tastes and needs of its users. Caroma, the iconic Australian designer of bathroom and kitchen products, is helping interior designers create the ultimate statement with their all new Colour Kitchen Mixer Collection.
The range is a collection of fully-featured yet fashionable kitchen sink mixers available in two distinguishable styles (Liano II and Urbane II), three functional types (standard, pull-out and pull-down versions) and five different colour finishes, allowing designers to tailor the aesthetic to suit a range of tastes and styles. Two function spray options (aerated flow and veggie spray) on the pull-down version and interchangeable handle options (Liano II pin and Urbane II paddle designs) open up greater design and selection opportunities.
Complementing the aesthetic appeal of the stunning Liano II and Urbane II colour bathroom collections, the new Caroma colour kitchen sink mixer range gives designers the freedom to create customised looks and provide consistency across the bathroom, kitchen and laundry. Mixer taps are available in a beautiful and highly durable palette of five colour finishes including new PVD brushed brass, brushed nickel and gunmetal, as well as electroplated black and chrome. Electroplating offers a much stronger finish than electrostatic finishing as the colour coating has a stronger bond to the surface, which is ideal for high-use environments.
The Caroma colour kitchen mixer range combines timeless aesthetics with high-end functionality. Caroma mixers include a first-in-market multiple outlet rotation lock. The outlet rotation can be set to 70o (standard and pull-out), 140o (standard, pull out and pull down) or 360o rotation angles (standard only) for added versatility on benchtops and kitchen islands. Added design features include SoftPEX hoses, which provide superior durability, longer life and are free from impurities; pull out hose with spring load retraction for reduced friction and greater flexibility; and magnetic spray docking for convenience of use.
Highlighting Caroma’s pioneering work in water and energy efficiency, the Caroma range features the Cool Start design, which saves energy by eliminating unnecessary hot water activation, taps with a water-efficient WELS 5 star flow rate (6L/min), and an option for a WELS 6 Star (4.5L/min) aerator.
Introduced by Caroma in the early 2000s, the first Liano sink mixer was a revolution in the tapware industry, being bold, clean line and in geometric form. Caroma takes its tradition of design excellence into the kitchen with this new range of mixer taps, all featuring the brand’s trademark blend of aesthetics, functionality and a ‘no compromises’ approach to quality and performance.
