It's a safe bet that at this year's Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas manufacturers will dazzle us. Here's a sampling of what's in store.
Brew Express is a built-in-the-wall, space-saving coffee maker that's fully plumbed and self filling. It installs into the wall of existing or new construction and connects to a pre-plumbed water source or pumps from a bottled-water source. The stainless steel appliance provides two extra outlets and is time-programmable with an adjustable cup selector. 866.268.5953. www.brewexpress.com.
The Arts and Crafts look is everywhere this season, including the Raulin collection of cabinetry. The wide-rail frame is complemented by Shaker crown molding. Full overlay drawers, slab drawer fronts, and recessed door panels distinguish the line. Shown are new 45-inch base and wall cabinets, ideal for larger kitchens. 812.482.2527. www.aristokraft.com.
Part of the company's Opulence Collection, the Victorian-style pot filler features an articulated spout with 13-inch and 7-inch arms that swing out from the wall. Solid brass construction and ceramic disc valves ensure high performance and reliability, says the maker. The faucet, offered in Chrome, Stainless Steel, Oil Rub Bronze, Satin Black, and Polished Brass finishes, features a shut-off valve at the wall and a control valve at the spout for ease of use. 877.530.3344. www.danze-online.com.
The company has partnered with water filtration experts PUR to develop the Simply PUR Water Filtration System. The all-inclusive system coordinates with a number of Delta faucets and uses PUR blue filters. Quick connect hoses make for easy installation, and an above-sink indicator light assures system performance, the maker says. 800.345.3358. www.deltafaucet.com.
Designed for the higher-end kitchen, Sedona is a maple cabinet with a full overlay, solid raised center panel door. Its rope inlay molding adds a dramatic touch. Five colors and five glaze finish treatments are offered, and the cabinet comes standard with six-way adjustable hinges. 800.527.5903. www.armstrong.com.
The Brianne collection of kitchen and bath fixtures offers a range of stylish options in chrome, brushed nickel, and oil-rubbed bronze. The faucets are available in both two-handle and single-control configurations, and the single-control models have an adjustable temperature limit stop that lets installers set a maximum temperature range. 847.675.6570. www.gerberonline.com.
Striking yet versatile, the Hancock cabinet door style features 2½-inch rails and stiles and a recessed panel design. The maple cabinets are offered in six finishes, including Champagne, Butterscotch, and Cordovan (shown). A number of decorative accents can be added for a custom look. 972.298.6101. www.qualitycabinets.com.
Helping to mark the company's 100th anniversary is the Titan, the result of a design team challenge to create a highly engineered yet aesthetically appealing toilet. Its longer trapway increases siphoning action, while the advanced flushing system succeeds in efficient bowl cleansing with one flush, the maker says. 800.423.5537. www.eljer.com.
Part of the Morphosis initiative, the Gamma corner whirlpool bath has body and back jets and chromatherapy lighting. The series, which also includes the Alpha and Sigma tubs, merges high-end design with hydrotherapy innovation, the company says. The tubs were designed in conjunction with Pininfarina, known for their Ferrari car designs. 800.288.4002. www.jacuzzi.com.
