Kitchen Cabinets / Danver

Dozens of finish combinations are available, including 13 custom painted color options and nine powder-coat painted wood finishes on doors and drawer fronts. The cabinets’ widths come in 3-inch increments, from 9 inches to 48 inches, with a standard 30-inch height.

Faucet Technology / Delta 

Several Delta faucets, including the Trinsic pull-down model, have Touch2O Technology, where a simple tap (much like the click of a mouse) on the handle or spout stops and starts the flow of water. The technology is able to distinguish between taps and grasps, so the water can run when the faucet is pivoted. The faucets are powered by batteries, and a blue LED light indicates when Touch2O Technology is activated, automatically shutting off after 4 minutes of inactivity.

Plumbing System / SharkBite Plumbing Solutions

The simplicity of the EvoPEX push-to-connect rough-in plumbing solution for new construction from SharkBite Plumbing Solutions means it’s more efficient to install and less prone to errors than other meter-to-fixture systems, the company says. EvoPEX can be installed without the need for special tools, soldering, crimping, or glue, and is inclusive of fittings, PEX pipe, outlet boxes, and valves. The body is made from Acudel high-performance polymer and features a green-colored visual indicator to ensures a proper, leak-free connection.

Shower Pan Slope / Noble Co.

The Pro-Slope from Noble Co. is a preformed composite made from expanded polystyrene that comes in 40-by-40-inch and 60-by-60-inch sizes and a 40-by-80-inch tub replacement size, with extensions available. Designed to help builders create the code-required ¼-inch-per-foot slope toward the center under a shower pan liner, which minimizes the risk of mold, fungus, and odor, the Pro-Slope is a lightweight product that can be cut using a utility knife and doesn’t require any mortar, mixing, or curing.
