Your Bathroom is About to Get Dreamier: Kohler Signature Store Opens in Bellevue
If you have plans to renovate your bathroom, or if like me, you live for aimlessly perusing kitchen and bath design showrooms (soaker tubs with water and air jets!), then have I got one well-heeled tidbit of home-decor news for you: Kohler, the manufacturer of bath products, tiles and beyond, has opened its third-ever Signature Store in the U.S., right here in Bellevue.
The store, owned and operated by Interbay-based Keller Supply Company, carries bath and kitchen faucets and sinks, showerheads, tubs, toilets, tile and other swoon-worthy bath goodies from Kohler's extensive brand portfolio. And you'll be able to see the merch in its fully designed surrounds, as a number of bathroom suites and other real-life examples have been carefully created to showcase just how specific products perform and look.
"Whether purchasing a kitchen faucet or embarking on a complete bathroom renovation," says Michelle Kilmer, Kohler's director of showroom marketing, "the [store] consultants can work with customers on every step of the home improvement process--conceptualization, design, product selection, budgeting and build-out."
While the Kohler Signature Store is currently open to the public, it will be hosting an open house on Saturday, March 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., which means loads of demos and design inspiration, such as how to create the perfect shower design and top tips for bathroom remodeling. What's more, the shop is offering 25 percent off Kohler products and 50 percent off in-home bath design consultations. Get thee to Bellevue for all the bathroom-design fun.
