The Days of Unaesthetic Home Water Filters Are Long Gone!

Water filters are all the rage now, with all the problems that can arise because of modern days and potential pollutants in water. Some of these water filters will have very industrial aesthetics that may not suit every home, not only because of functionality but appearance. If the concern is that any filter you choose will look unsightly, then luckily there are designs that cater to beauty and function.

This means that there are a number of water filters that look absolutely gorgeous, and it’s only a matter of taste. Most aesthetic filters are designed in pitcher or jug form, as under-the-counter ones would not be visible. Function is the primary importance for under-sink filters and consulting experts in the field like Gene who actively discusses their use will help greatly.

Dewberry Shape Filter Water Jug

A fantastic water filter not only in efficiency but in aesthetics as well Dewberry Shape Filter Water Jug has a striking design. With simplistic round features and a faint salmon-colored top, this little filter jug is a delight.

Cleaning the jug regularly with vinegar is enough to buff out any limescale deposits and make it sparkle like new once again.

Even the filtering medium is made to amp up its aesthetic as you can see the layers of the cartridge. This adds an interesting contrast to the see-through container.

A spigot at the bottom completes this beautifully crafted filter that will surely turn some heads. Using gravity as the filtering power for the water, the tower surely holds up to its aptly chosen name. With its layers cartridge heart and unique design, the tower looks and works stunningly.

The Soma Pitcher

The carafe is made with BPA-free plastic that will hold up against shattering. The rounder edges at the base give a sleek outline matching the cartridge shape inside.

The black-colored version would fit neatly with other black devices in the kitchen. The white colored one comes with a golden oak wood colored handle, which brings out the aesthetic even more.

The Talise Fluted Carafe Water Filter

An almost vintage-like style, the Talise Fluted Carafe encompasses design in a more modular way. Elegant and inspired, this beautiful water jug brings a nice accent among other decorative pieces in the kitchen. A table with glasses would fit nicely with the design of this filter and it can also be used without the filter as a simple carafe.

Since its origins are in glassblower handcraftsmanship, the glass itself can withstand hot and cold drinks. There is also no worry about limescale stains as the jug can be washed in the dishwasher, and take care of pesky deposits that interfere with the crystal-clear aesthetic.
