Moen Kitchen/Bathroom Faucets, Sinks, Showers, Fixtures, Collections Guide-Review

Updated on January 10, 2015

Moen Faucets

Compared to American Standard or Kohler corporations, both of which were established in late 19th century, Moen is a relatively new company, emerging on the market just before the second world war – on the toes of Delta Faucet, which appeared just after. As a modern company, Moen enjoys several advantages: close familiarity with the baby boom clientèle, inherent openness to new ideas and innovations and, perhaps most important, a contemporary outlook on what hygiene means.

The company's main focus becomes the smaller fixtures – faucets, sinks, various accessories, and a range of complimenting accessories. Although Moen do not manufacture (at least not yet) such large implements as bathtubs, shower receptors, or bathtubs, they branch into other, less familiar areas of the plumbing industry: commercial design (faucets, valves, showerheads, towel cabinets parts), and safety products – Home Care daughter company tub, shower, and toilet safety seats, bars, and other accessories.

Moen achieved respect and carry weight in the industry not only by following the strictest standards in water saving(WaterSense), but also by introducing own technologies and patents. Duralast ceramic discs, Spot Resist and LifeShine finishes, Hydrolock, Soft Grip, InvigoRain and Immersion form only a partial list of original trademarks.

Designs

Moen organize their selection of faucets, sinks, and shower fixtures by collections, which in turn fall into four stylistic categories: traditional, transitional, modern, and basic. Home makers will immediately appreciate the utility in such categorization – it allows to customize the bathroom according to a certain trend, based on one consistent theme, all with extra ease and effectiveness. Interior décor professionals will also recognize the stylistic patterns, as they reappear in lighting (such as Murray Feiss), rugs (such as Nourison or Momeni), furniture, and related inventory.

Collections

Collections include Showhouse (a daughter company department), Monticello, Kingsley, Adler, Chateau, Eva, Renzo, and many others. While some of the faucets follow traditional and classic layouts, others opt for unorthodox, even shocking looks, which draw inspiration from nature or industrial design. Commercial quality fixtures comprise yet another important segment in Moen selection.

Materials and Finishes

Finishes include nickel, chrome, bronze, pewter, platinum, wrought iron – offered in brushed, polished, antique, aged, oil rubbed, and other treatments; the kitchen sinks arrive in stainless steel.

Fixtures

  • Bathroom/Lavatory Faucets section offers nearly two hundred centerset, widespread, single-hole, and wall-mount fixtures in a broad range of prices, styles, and finishes. Number of handles and installation holes varies from one to three – requiring corresponding lavatory or sink. Metal or plastic are two main materials, the former considerably outmatching the latter; the majority of these products are ADA and WaterSense compliant.

  • Kitchen/Laundry/Bar Faucets also approach the two hundreds in number of models, and add the functional pullout or pull-down variation which allows to manipulate the water stream manually. One-handle category is by far the most popular – a natural occurrence in a home environment that's also a workplace. Accessories include soap dispensers and side sprays.

  • Shower assortment includes a broad range of showerheads, hand-showers, tub faucets, kits (including valves, levers, and other parts), and vertical spa systems, which rival the most advanced Kohler, Delta, and American Standard offerings. Features modern and industrial designs side by side with retro and classic items.

  • Kitchen sinks complement kitchen faucets (or rather vice versa) – made from stainless steel, consisting of one or two basins (also suitable for kosher cuisine), and installed in drop-in (not unlike bathtubs) or undermount methods. Arrive in three English lore inspired collections, Lancelot, Excalibur, and Camelot, prepared for the faucets.

  • Parts and Accessories comprise an essential segment in Moen plumbing products: all the tub spouts, arm diverters, slide bars, levers, handles, drains, body sprays, grab bars, hand grips, add touches of comfort that make the difference between routine or enhanced bathroom or kitchen experience.
