Please let us know your thoughts!

There are affordable shower towers for a more impactful impression.

Even spiral kitchen faucets are now more affordable.

The photo we took doesn’t do these lights justice! They come in all sizes, shapes, and brightness. Truly the way of the future.

Custom Service Hardware- rolling door. Where it is too tight to have a swing door, these rolling doors can provide the perfect solution. To make it less barnlike, hide the mechanism behind a soffit! www.cshardware.com

Bosch- microwave/range thermador. www.bosch-home.com/us

Task Lighting- track outlets & USBs, closet lighting, under mount kitchen lighting.

www.tasklighting.com

Power strips for under cabinet installation means you can offer multiple outlets for an affordable cost. Better way to provide electrical service than in the past – cheaper, faster, brighter and more outlets where you need them!

Closet rod lighting is effective, discreet, bright, and inexpensive.

Viking has a new induction cooktop in 30” and 36” models. www.vikingrange.com

This induction warmer is placed under the countertop for areas where food might be kept hot-great entertaining idea-when the correct pot is placed on the surface, in this case a stone surface, the induction cooktop warms the pot, not the stone. Great for entertaining.

Very modern integral sinks make a design statement that’s sure to set you apart.

Mr. Sinks & Faucets- square sink at an affordable price.

LG- signature washing machine-very easy to use control panel.

General comment: all new appliances will be “connected” via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth in the next 2 years. So whatever you spec today will be clearly outmoded when you deliver your home.

Karran- flush mounted sinks. We made you aware of this trend two years ago. F lush mounted sinks have a clean, modern “new” look. www.karran.com

For amenity areas, this type of sink makes a huge statement!
