Bosch Appliances + BLANCO = The Perfect Couple

The two German brands, Bosch and Blanco, came together logically and flawlessly throughout the new Bosch, Thermador, and Gaggenau showroom in Irvine, California. I was invited, along with others from the media, to attend the opening of this big, beautiful, state of the art showroom.

The reception area of the Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau showroom

Two words: German Engineering. It's immediately apparent how perfectly these two brands go together aesthetically, not to mention their beautiful, precise, engineering-the fit and finish is superb. 

But, here's the thing -  although the Bosch portion of the showroom is quite minimalist and of wholly modern design, if you look past that, it's easy to see that both of these brands' products (most of them) can transition easily and logically to a range of kitchen design themes, from modern to traditional and beyond. Some faucets are more clearly suited to one style or another. Others play very well in a variety of styles.

For the price point, you get a WHOLE lot of style, substance, precision and performance. More pretty pictures from this fabulous showroom...

Did you know that Bosch has a slide in range? Allows the design of a clean backsplash

Note the sink cutout - it's interesting to see the sink section. I like that look.

Blanco and Bosch are the happy couple!

Sleek, simply designed built-in appliances

Note the small stainless sink detail surrounding the countertop cutout - cool

My absolute FAVE combination of Blanco faucet finishes and I love Blanco's silgranite sink-talk about performance!

Perfection in the details

Try this combination - Truffle (color) and a traditional Blanco faucet

I always love a cooktop and under cabinet oven combination-so elegant

Note the lower divider in the sink and the rich, beautiful, faucet finish

A combination kitchen/display area for multiple appliances

Yes, Blanco does a stainless apron sink + the beautiful, sculptural Culina faucet

Can you see the quality shine through in these pictures?

Wow! I really love their work. It is indeed very beautiful specially the apron sink. Good job!

I love how the subway tile and mosaic tile backsplashes really add so much to the kitchen design! The faucets and sinks are beautiful as well.

I must say, the partnership between Bosch and Blanco - the so called 'Perfect Couple' can really do wonders. I mean you can't help but look at all these designs in awe and wonder what else can they do. The third picture from the bottom - the one with the sink divider and the faucet with matte black finish is absolutely spectacular. Thanks for sharing this insightful post with us.

We are almost done with our kitchen remodel. We actually did a stainless apron front with Blanco's Culina faucet. It is a beautiful combination!

I can see more than quality shine through. I see elegance, style and practicability. Now I am not easily impressed to be honest but this partnership is a blinding success.

The backsplash in the last two pictures is pretty intense. I can't imagine not feeling happy cooking in that kitchen. It is just so bright and cheery!
