These new kitchen and bath products include hand-finished tiles and faucet handles and the latest smart technology in cooking and cleaning.
Lowell Bath Wood Console
DXV has added wood consoles with leather accents to its Arts & Crafts-inspired Lowell bath furniture collection. Offering an alternative to traditional pedestal sinks in master baths and powder rooms, the consoles feature solid wood legs in a choice of natural oak with cognac leather accents or graphite with black leather accents on the console spokes. The console legs are juxtaposed by the clean lines of the wall-mounted sink and the polished-chrome front towel bar.
Front Load 24-in Washer & Dryer
Fisher & Paykel Appliances Inc.
Fisher & Paykel’s compact, 24-in front-loading washer and dryer are now available in the U.S. and Canada. Available in stackable or side-by-side options, the new compact laundry can handle loads up to 2.4 cubic ft per cycle. Two washers are available: the FabricSmart Front Loader, with a new steam function, and the WashSmart Front Loader Time Saver option for fast washes. With a capacity of 4.0 cubic ft, the dryer’s condensing technology makes installation simply a matter of plugging in. No venting required.
GE Café Slide-In Ranges
The GE Café slide-in ranges are WiFi- and Bluetooth-enabled, allowing owners to preheat, set timers, and change temperatures from their smart devices. The gas and dual fuel GE Café slide-in model (shown) comes with six burners on a 30-in range and a double oven — all in the same space used by most standard upright ranges. The GE Café electric slide-in range includes an induction cooktop in a single or double oven and is the first and only range to come standard with a precision cooking probe that monitors liquid temperature and then communicates adjustments to the connected range and a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth.
This faucet collection takes customization to a new level with a choice of more than 380,000 design options. Elements offers handle styles grouped into four material categories: Raw (hand-poured, sealed, and reinforced concrete); Rock (hand-finished natural stones and marbles); Lumber (real wood grain and texture captured and sealed into concrete); and Forged (metal applied in a liquid format onto a substrate). The faucets come with brass bases, decorative insert options, and several spout choices available in any of Watermark’s 24 finishes.
Custom Finish and Hardware Options
True has introduced custom color finishes and hardware options for its full-size refrigerators and new column refrigeration units. The new custom finish colors include Antique White, Matte Black, and Gloss Black, while new hardware options include copper, brass, and chrome. An interactive “Build Your True” tool allows users to visualize different customizations in a kitchen setting, which can then be easily downloaded and shared with clients through social media platforms.
