Each color is available in slabs 2 centimeters or 3 centimeters thick. A new finish called Atlantis, which resembles the look of concrete, is also available in select color options.

 

Bath Collection / Delta Faucet

Delta’s Tesla Collection is a full line of bath faucets that draws inspiration from organic forms found in nature.

Flush Technology / Kohler

Revolution 360 is Kohler’s new swirl flushing technology that sends water through the bowl for complete 360-degree coverage, resulting in a clog-free flush, the company says. Featuring the brand’s Aqua­­Piston ­flush canister, Revolution 360 uses a single powerful jet to propel water around the entire bowl. The technology is currently available on Corbelle toilets.
