New kitchen and bath remodels, according to American Institute of Architects, still rank at the top of the list for remodeling projects. Many homeowners are choosing to add luxuries, in the form of technology, when doing their remodel. These luxuries make life easier and a little more enjoyable but do come at a price. Here are the 6 top new products that will add that special touch to your new kitchen or bath remodel.
Hot or Cold Instantly
The Everpure Helia water appliance is literally a hot new kitchen product. It delivers chilled (40 Degrees F) or hot (200 Degrees F) water immediately, directly from the tap. Combine with the Everpure water filtration unit to have commercial grade filtered water. This unit is perfect for chilled water, iced or hot tea; either in your kitchen or wet bar. It can also be useful for pasta, oatmeal and soup as a quick meal for the busy family.
No Touch Flushing
The Kohler Touchless toilet is great for the germaphobe in your household. You can now flush the toilet by simply waving a hand over the sensor instead of a lever. Batteries are required for the sensor that detects when your hand enters the electromagnetic area. This toilet is available in two styles, either the Cimarron or the contemporary San Souci. There is also a retro fit kit that will work with almost any single flush unit.
Fresh Air Ventilation
New homes have become more energy efficient in the past few years because of how tightly they are sealed, but there is one downfall. The air quality of these homes has gotten worse, this is where the Panasonic WhisperComfort ERV comes in. It is an energy efficient unit that provides fresh, aerated air all while preserving the air quality indoors. Perfect for use in high moisture areas of you home such as new kitchens or baths.
Looking to spice up your new kitchen remodel? How about installing Steel Crest decorative cabinet grills in your cabinets. Starting at only 35¢ per square inch, it’s a little pricey but your cabinets will definitely stand out.
One Touch Wine
Liebherr manufactures just about everything from construction machinery to this under-counter wine cooler. The sleek and sophisticated look is highlighted by the lack of handles, and just a soft touch in the corner opens the door.
Double Oven Convenience
The GE Profile™ Series 30″ Built-In Double Convection wall oven fits in the space of a standard wall oven but provides the extra convenience of two separate ovens. The touch controls are strategically placed in the glass door of the upper oven, which maximizes space and makes the outside easy to clean.
