The Best Faucet for Each Enneagram Type
Although it’s been around for more than a century, you may have seen this thing called Enneagram personality types on social media in recent months. According to Enneagram Network, “The Enneagram is a system of nine personality types combining traditional wisdom with modern psychology - a powerful tool for understanding ourselves and the people in our lives.”
Your Enneagram type can tell a lot about you, from personality to style. Designing a home that is a perfect reflection of that personality means creating a place of rest and comfort, right down to the smallest details — like faucets.
We love creative bathroom design ideas and personality tests. That’s why we’ve put together this list with our choices of which Watermark faucets are best for each Enneagram type. What do you think of your type’s faucet?
Type 1: The Perfectionist
Traditional and responsible design is the name of the game for the perfectionist. Something simple and elegant will give this Enneagram type a sense of comfort and authenticity.
Pairing an industrial-style faucet in brass with the sophisticated simplicity of white granite countertop and white cupboards gives the perfectionist exactly what they need. Plus, they can spruce up this style anytime they want with countertop decorations or keep it simple and trustworthy.
Type 2: The Helper
Creating a space that will be soothing and meet all their loved ones needs is what the helper is all about. They are looking for a soothing space where everyone can relax and feel comfortable while washing away the stress of the day.
The design that suits the helper is one that is simple and spa-like. The faucet that represents this desire is one that can easily fit into all bathroom trends. This Watermark faucet is just the ticket.
Type 3: The Performer
The performer is all about activity and being on-the-go. They need something that screams enthusiasm and a go-get-em’ attitude, with an atmosphere that is invigorating. Performers are busy people after all.
Performers don’t want to mess around with high-maintenance fixtures, but they want something that fits into their unique style. Keeping it easy yet inspiring is what the Blue collection is all about. And hey, when they want to switch it up, all they need to do is hang some pop art and they’re ready to go.
Type 4: The Romantic
The passionate romantic is one who slows down and smells the roses. They also want something that speaks to a forgotten past. Rich shades and complementary colors lend an indulgent feel that can just as easily be found in a Manhattan loft as in a Parisian pied-a-terre.
Even a country estate is not too ideal for the romantic. Striving for authenticity is crucial for the romantic and that’s why a faucet that speaks both classic and trendy is perfect for these emotion-driven and unique individuals. Don’t forget the flowers.
Type 5: The Observer
The observers are the scholars of the Enneagram world. They seek minimalism, elegance and even a little technicality. The observer is comfortable with sleek lines and natural materials.
For the observer, the attention is in the simplicity. Pairing this take on a classic faucet design with neutral tones and natural materials will give the observer a sanctuary they can sink into. After all, observing the world is tiring work.
Type 6: The Loyal Skeptic
While the loyal skeptic may be hesitant, their strength lies in their courage. A solid and sustainable environment gives this cautious type a place they can truly unwind.
A streamlined design like this one won’t ever leave this tentative type maintaining its protective walls. And a simple free-standing tub faucet that is both elegant and functional is what these loyal skeptics need.
Type 7: The Epicure
Of all the Enneagram types, the epicure is the most daring and unconcerned with what others think of them. This type is unafraid to communicate clearly and is always forward-thinking!
Regarding home style, a daring and bold design is what whets Epicure appetites. A gunmetal faucet design that is unapologetic fits perfectly with the epicure’s basic need to express uniqueness.
Type 8: The Protector
The protector is both a powerful leader and a generous advocate. They are always looking to ease others and help them feel at home. But don’t think that doesn’t come with a healthy splash of flair. The protector wants a strong design that is sturdy yet set apart from the rest — just as the protector is.
This design is perfect for the protector: the wall-mounted faucet with industrial piping is the perfect pairing with a sleek stone sink and stone wall design. Add a statement mirror to reflect this type’s commanding leadership to complete the look that best represents the protector.
Type 9: The Mediator
The mediator is the self-appointed glue that holds everyone and everything together. They are willing to step in and always do the right thing, even at the cost of their own peace. That’s why, at the end of a long day, mediators need a place to get away to decompress. A calming, focused design with a touch of individual style is the answer.
This bathroom, paired with a classic wall-mounted faucet, is perfect for the hardworking mediator. The richness of the brass mixed with comforting touches like a reclaimed wood stool and luxurious rug work together well to replenish mediator energy.
