A look in the nation’s washrooms reveals our differences
Canada has its share of stereotypes, eh? To some, Canadians are the quiet type, likely on their way to the rink, wearing a toque and being far too polite about it.
“This country is too big for one catch-all stereotype,” says Adam Findlay, Senior Marketing Manager of Pfister. “Being Canadian isn’t just about clothing, donuts or beer. It’s also about faucets. Yes, faucets.
Based on Spectrum Brand’s top-sellers by region, we can see just what makes each part of this great country tick.
Verano – Maritimes
Those in the Maritimes are subtle, wise with money and satisfied with what they have. The faucet of choice here is the Verano. With its small stature, traditional design and the bang it offers for your buck, is it a surprise that the Verano faucet sells on Canada’s East Coast?
Evanton – Quebec
Quebec may be the most distinct of all Canadian regions and their love of the Evanton faucet cements it. Casted as a single piece rather than separate parts, the Evanton stands out with a modern design, square lines and a minimalist look.
Kamato – Ontario
Ontario prefers the Kamato with its contemporary design, sleek lines and a soft-square look. Makes sense, right? Ask anyone from there and they’ll tell you they’ve always been ahead of the game.
Selia – Prairies
Those in the Prairies like to slow it down with a classic, timeless style and a transitional design. They’re ready for anything and the popularity of the Selia faucet proves it. And, really, would anywhere else in Canada opt for the softer finish that the Brushed Nickel on this faucet offers?
Fullerton – BC
Lastly,BC, unsurprisingly, loves the Fullerton. This faucet’s tubular, contemporary design offers that modern, minimalist look. The joystick handle hints at the region’s love of fun and adventure.
So, next time you’re oot and aboot, take some time to notice the faucets.
