"I made an appointment with Cam because I was interested in selling some gold. My mom had a lot of jewellery and I really didn't know what was real and what was fake. I was a little apprehensive about going in because you just never know if they will tell you the truth and give you the money you really should be getting. Cam put all my fears to rest. It was such a great experience that I have already told friends and family to go through their jewellery and take it in. 

I would have NO issues with going back again. In fact, as soon as I got home I was on the hunt for more jewellery kicking around that we don't want. He even taught me a few lessons on what to look for if you are unsure if an item is real or not. I had a lot of fun!"

Trusted Saskatoon Kitchen Store Wheatland Fireplace, Kitchen & Bath's Kitchen Faucet Buying Guide

Your first step into the beautiful Wheatland Fireplace Kitchen & Bath Saskatoon showroom will help you understand why Wheatland Fireplace has been given the Thumbs up by Trusted Saskatoon. Wheatland loves their customers and as a result, their customers love and TRUST them. In their latest kitchen faucet tip, they share a great kitchen faucet buying guide. 

Kitchen Faucet Buying Guide

Whether you’re replacing an old faucet or installing something new in a remodeling plan, there are a few things to know before the water starts to flow.

Faucet Types: Deck-Mount or Wall-Mount Faucets 

Deck-mount faucets attach to the countertop or rest on the sink. These are usually common kitchen sink faucets. Wall-mount faucets attach through the wall and hang over the sink. If you choose a replacement deck-mount faucet, the number of holes in your sink is important. One-piece faucets, with an integrated handle and spout, need one hole for the handle/spout piece and another for the sprayer. Traditional faucets, with hot and cold taps, require three holes for the taps and spout and a fourth for the sprayer. Additional options — soap dispensers or integrated sprayers — create a different set of requirements. If you’re starting from scratch, choose the faucet before the sink, so you can buy a sink with the appropriate number of holes for your selection. Alternatively, holes can be drilled into the sink to accommodate the faucet. More often than not, the best kitchen sink faucets come equipped with the sprayer feature.

Tip: Escutcheons, also called base plates or deck plates, are ornamental plates that cover additional holes and allow the installation of a one-hole faucet on a three-hole sink.

Faucet Handles

Typically, kitchen sink faucets have either one handle rotating directionally to change water temperature or two handles for mixing hot and cold water. These include a sprayer that sits to the side or a pull-out or pull-down sprayer with spray and stream options. Hands-free faucets add a new dimension to the kitchen. These can be touch-or motion-oriented and come with both temperature and volume control, making these faucets a safe choice for homes with children. Hands-free faucets work well with the universal design concept, making living spaces more accessible and accommodating for every level of physical ability.

Tip: If you choose a pull-out or pull-down sprayer, look for a faucet with a magnetic catch so that the hosing keeps its form.

Sinks for Specialized Tasks

Before you choose your faucet, think about the ways you use your sink. Do you wash a lot of bulky pots and pans? Are you bathing a baby? A high-arc faucet might make your tasks more comfortable. If you have room in the kitchen, consider installing a bar prep faucet in a side sink. The double setup makes it one of the best kitchen faucets because of the ease of keeping meats and vegetables separate during meal preparation.

Faucet Finishes

If you prefer a unified look in your kitchen, check out the selection of kitchen sink faucets with a finish that matches the cabinet hardware. Bronze, chrome, and nickel/stainless steel are available at every price point.


Faucet Features

In-faucet filters are great for filtering tap water. Keep volume and maintenance in mind to decide if this is the right filtering option for your family. Soap dispensers make it easy to keep kitchen counters clear of clutter. Hot-water dispensers are great for hot beverages and pot filling. A kitchen faucet with a sprayer makes for a great feature. You can use the sprayer to get excess grime off of your dishes and into the drain quickly and efficiently.


Faucet Installation and Operation

There are two types of faucet installations: top mount and bottom mount. Top-mount faucets attach with screws through the bottom of the faucet piece from underneath the counter. Bottom-mount faucets attach with screws through the top of the faucet piece. There are four types of faucet mechanisms: ball valve, ceramic disc, compression valve, and cartridge. The type won’t affect your day-to-day use but will affect faucet repairs and maintenance down the road.

Tip: If you have cabinets above your kitchen sink faucets, measure the height available from the deck plate to the bottom of the upper cabinet. Keep this number in mind when shopping.

Kitchen and Bath Classics Trusted Saskatoon Bathroom Store Shares Top 5 Bathroom Design Trends

Whether you are building a new home In Saskatoon or remodelling a single room, the team at  Kitchen & Bath Classics Saskatoon is a Trusted Saskatoon Bathroom Store offers you one of the largest selections of plumbing fixtures, faucets, lighting and accessories from quality brand names, Their showroom displays the latest trends and cutting-edge styles. In their latest offering, they share their top 5 trends for bathroom design

Bathroom Design Trends. 



 Here's a breakdown of the latest bathroom trends according to design industry experts.  

Design Your Saskatoon Bathroom With The 2020 Pantone Colour Of The Year- Classic Blue.

Classic blue represents “bringing a sense of peace and tranquillity to the human spirit”. It makes perfect sense that colour with that meaning behind it would be chosen for a place of rest and tranquillity—the bathroom.
Depending on your style and taste, Classic Blue can be used in a variety of ways. For example, a popular way to include colour in the bathroom is through tiles, either for the flooring or in the shower. You can also include a Classic Blue bathroom vanity if you want a pop of colour against flat neutrals that can use a bit of edge. If you’re feeling extra daring, you can even paint an entire bathroom Classic Blue! But we know that not everyone can commit to a paint job in a bold colour. If you want to incorporate the 2020 Colour Of The Year in smaller steps, you can try adding towels, flowers and paintings. 

Design With The Hottest Faucet Finish in 2020: Matte Black


The bathroom is a great place to experiment with matte black finishes. You can change your current faucet, showerhead, handheld showerhead, handles, pulls and lighting to this popular finish and see your bathroom transform from ordinary to extraordinarily modern.

Matte black finishes have been perfected to meet the needs of bathroom users, so you don’t need to worry about the finishes wearing off. Many luxury and mid-range brands are adding even more matte black faucets and accessories to their lineup, giving you a large selection to choose from in 2020.

Design Au Naturel and Eco-Friendly


Let your mind be free in the serenity of greenery in the bathroom. Between the hardness of bathroom finishes and materials, it's a much-welcomed idea to have plants and foliage in the bathroom. Bathroom plants are great to freshen the air, add some softness and of course, colour.

The new year also brings focus to creating an eco-friendly bathroom by changing out inefficient faucets and plumbing fixtures. 


Here are some bathroom features to think about:
  • Change out your toilet to a low-flow model
  • Install a low-flow showerhead that works on magnetized poles, like ones from American Standard
  • Get a motion-activated faucet so there’s less water wasted between washing your hands and brushing your teeth
  • Choose quartz countertops as opposed to other materials. Quartz impacts the environment significantly less than other materials

Design In Plain Sight


Here’s what’s funny about bathrooms—there are certain things we want to show off about them, like beautiful tile work in the shower or a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub. But there are other things we don’t necessarily love to look at...like plumbing and drains.

But what if they were designed to be extra pleasing to the eye? That’s what 2020 is all about.

Exposed plumbing is a rising trend. Bathroom brands are now creating industrial-inspired pipe systems that are meant to be shown off in an array of beautiful finishes. You don’t have to hide away complicated pipe systems behind drywall anymore!

As for drains, bathroom brands and designers have found a clever way to hide them in plain sight. Many shower drains can now be designed to look as though they are part of the shower tile or shower floor. The result is a sleek look that doesn’t distract!

You can even go as far as a wall-hung toilet to remove the bulk and clutter of a toilet septic tank. Bathroom brands like TOTO are trailblazing this 2020 toilet trend. It’s also great for smaller spaces where a tank can take up precious square footage.

Design Your Bathroom With Colours, Wallpaper and Fun!


Step outside your comfort zone in the colours and designs you choose for your bathroom. Break out of traditional neutrals in the bathroom and experiment with pops of colour in textiles, accents of paint colour and even wallpaper. Yes, wallpaper...But don’t think it’s the same type of wallpaper from your grandparents’ homes.

Wallpapers come in so many varieties these days. You can choose anything from gentle geometric patterns to bold prints and textures. But a great alternative to wallpaper is a nice tile. Tiles also come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours for any project. The options are endless.
