Maris Park and Malyka
Abramson, industrial design- ers from Delta Faucet Com- pany, were both recently recognized in the National Kitchen + Bath Association’s Thirty Under 30 Program, which celebrates emerging talent in the kitchen and bath industry. Here are Park and Abramson’s tips of what to explore, what to avoid and where to find your own in- spiration.
While the world works to put the coronavirus in the rearview mirror, its effects on design are here to stay. Americans are using their homes in a completely new way, and their expectations of the home are shifting to meet those new realities.
“We expect more of our homes than ever before,” says Park. “People are trans- forming their homes for their specific needs.”

Expect more multiuse spaces to use for cooking, virtual learning, home work- outs and more. Indulgent spaces invite a retreat and recharge from an always-on lifestyle. Easy-to-clean prod- ucts that promote health and wellness are surging in demand. Americans are in- vesting in technology to not only make their lives easier, but also to give them greater control of their homes.
Seek out designs that enhance your experience with the product or space, or simply make your day better. The integrated pull- down spray wand of the KayraTM Pull-Down Bath Fau- cet keeps bathroom sinks beautiful and hardworking with a quick rinse.
Americans are seeking to
escape the pandemic in their homes, finding inspiration in either the past or the future. Many are going all-in on vin- tage looks, such as gold or porcelain fixtures, while oth- ers are pushed to the other end of the spectrum, looking to futuristic shapes and fin- ishes. Delta Faucet’s Cham- pagne Bronze finish has a vintage feel. On the other hand, the moody hues of a Matte Black finish give a con- temporary look.
While there are plenty of trends to explore, there re- ally are no rules to design this year. The rise of social media and free design tools have given you permission to mix trends, styles and decades into a space that is uniquely you and works for the way you use your home.
“To define your style in one trend is impossible right now,” says Park. “Instead, feel empowered to be daring with color, material and styl- ing. Revolving this changing personality around a ground- ed piece, like a classic faucet silhouette, will allow for ver- satility for years to come.”
Park and Abramson cau- tion there’s a difference be- tween trends and fads.
“Consumers want to
be current without chas- ing fleeting fads,” says Abramson. “They can pro- tect themselves from fads by going after large-scale trends. It’s a fine line.”
How can you spot the dif- ference? Trends can go on for years or even decades, and go down as classics. While they might not be in vogue forever, they’re never out of place.
But fads aren’t totally banned. Park suggests ex- perimenting with fads in your styling that can be switched out and fine-tuned over the years.
“Styling is everything right now; it’s how you add a personal touch and make meaningful connections,” she says. “It’s also how you get re-inspired and continue to fall in love with a space.”
When you find designs that resonate, you make emotional connections with a piece. You build memories with it. Maybe it’s giving your baby their first bath. Or it’s choosing a finish that reminds you of your grand- parents’ home. It’s the mem- ories your children grow up with.
