Delights of #KBIS2017 - Part 2 of 2

Still amazed by all the new products introduced at KBIS2017 [some of which I mentioned last week], I'm excited to share even more amazing delights in this post. 

American Standard, DXV and GROHE, kitchen and bath brands under LIXIL America, share a common mission to improve health and increase sustainability while enhancing the quality of people's lives. It's no surprise that these brands lobbed their focus on improving the overall function of products we use everyday.

As a long time specifier of the American Standard brand, especially their toilets, I was excited upon introduction to their stylish and affordable Acticlean Toilet. The Acticlean™ system combines the power of the exclusive Vormax™ flushing technology. And, with the push of a button, the toilet springs into cleaning mode. All cleaning components are discretely hidden from view, yet accessible when needed.

This innovation is on point to deliver the cleanest flush ever engineered with an integrated, user-activated self-cleaning system. There are notable design improvements that contributes to the overall cleaning system. The toilet features the innovative CleanCurve Rim that eliminates the rim cavity and holes inside the bowl where dirt and build-up lives. In addition, the EverClean antimicrobial surface inhibits the growth of stain, bacteria, mold and mildew, helping it stay cleaner, longer.

GROHE is the leading provider of sanitary fittings and a global brand dedicated to providing innovative water products, which is why I'm thrilled to feature their latest innovation. The GROHE Foot Control Technology enables users to switch the water flow on and off with a tap of the foot via an activation plate installed directly in the space located at the bottom of the kitchen cabinet.

Available in two of GROHE's most popular faucets or as a retro-fit set for any of their available pull-down faucets, this innovative enhancement frees hands for added maneuverability and helps to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria around the kitchen.

Mohawk presented their Smartstrand Silk reserve carpet that places people like you and me at the forefront of their product. One of the most amazing benefits of the Smartstrand is its ability to take a beating. With its permanent stain resistance, advanced spill protection, maximum durability and super softness, this carpet is suitable for everyday living.

Unavoidably noticeable, the Smartstand carpet gives off a sense of high-quality.
