Designed with the home chef in mind, this line was inspired by cook Ulrich Koberstein’s team of professional chefs who worked with Kohler to produce ingenius multipurpose sinks.
The line was designed around the French culinary concept "mise en place," which means "everything in place." The practical result is a sink with purposeful accessories and efficient working space.
Our favorite feature is the dual-sided flip tray, which serves as a cutting board and serving tray. It also provides extra counter space when the sink is not being used.

Nothing is more relaxing than a warm bubble bath at the end of a long day. And with this new feature from Moen, your evening treat just got easier! The ioDIGITAL™ technology features multiple special functions. You can set the temperature and height of the water for your bath by pressing a button. So while you tend to other household needs, your bath perfectly fills itself.
It also has a Hot Top Off option, which gives you extra hot water for an extra-long bath. This technology is also available for the shower, with a remote that lets you turn it on from another room -- allowing you to stay in bed a few more minutes.

We expect a lot from a dishwasher nowadays. Not only should it run quietly and blend with our other appliances, but it should also clean our baked-on casserole dishes and preserve delicate stemware.
With its stainless steel appearance and discreet LCD programming display, this dishwasher looks sleek and minimalistic, but the real power lies inside. With LG’s Truesteam™ technology, you can add steam to any washing cycle to help clean and sterilize (perfect for baby bottles and kid’s toys). It also increases capacity with a versatile third rack -- ideal for large kitchen utensils and loose or fragile items.

With its chrome finish and strong lines, this fixture stood out from the crowd. Inspired by old-world European ironwork, the designer meshed contemporary lines with the graceful curves of timeless design.

The average kitchen faucet flows at 2.2 gallons per minute (gpm). To meet the new WaterSense certification standards, manufacturers are designing more efficient faucets for 1.5 gpm expectations.
This faucet is sleek in design, and the versatility makes it stand out from other kitchen faucets. With an average water flow of 1.5 gpm, the Linden offers a “power boost” feature. So at the touch of a button, you can increase the water flow to 2.2 gpm. If you are still on the fence about going low-flow, it gives you the option for both pressures.

Extending your home to the outdoors can be a lot of work -- especially if installing an outdoor kitchen is involved. But this year, Eldorado Stone has made it easier to take on the job with modular units.

Then, simply have holes cut for your essentials (grill, appliances, drawers), cover the outside with stone or brick, and you’re ready for a party! Best of all, the units make it possible to customize your space and are DIY friendly.

Sleek lines, glossy surfaces, and chrome accents are phrases usually associated with Italian sports cars rather than kitchens. But this line, from Milan-based kitchen design company Scavolini, infuses cutting-edge technology with sophisticated European design, while keeping everything user friendly.
This top-of-the-line kitchen is customizable with cabinets and countertops available in four different materials, each offered in an array of colors. The deep cabinets are smartly designed to maximize storage. They come outfitted with shelves that swivel for easy access and mesh baskets to accommodate hard-to-store large pots and pans.
