Hideaway Solutions has solved the problem of hard to reach shelves and cabinets in the kitchen with the STEP 180 pull-out cabinet step stool. Modern design lends itself to tall ceilings and cabinets, which can create a problem when they become out of reach. Hideaway Solutions has developed a sleek way to disguise a step stool into your design by creating a retractable built-in option. The step stool is built into your cabinetry and conveniently tucks away when not in use, saving space but not skimping on safety. It provides a built-in railing with an integrated child-lock that drastically reduces the risk of accidents. So go ahead, use all those upper cabinets and tall shelves, the STEP 180 was designed to work with custom and standard cabinets to give you a step up.

Flexibility Reimagined

Flexibility Reimagined

Bosch DishwasherA dishwasher for everything: Bosch has introduced a new Benchmark line that raises the bar on flexibility. With its innovative RackMatic® and MyWay® rack options that easily adjust for even the largest pots, they offer the industry’s largest loading capacity while also making it flexible to suit each individual load’s needs. A tiered third rack is able to accommodate everything from large cereal bowls to your favorite whisk. The foldable silverware tray tucks away nicely in the top rack leaving the bottom racks available for larger items.

Bosch, a company well known for its quiet appliances, boasts the Benchmark Dishwasher as the quietest dishwasher brand, even with all three racks fully loaded. It is so quiet you’ll never know when it has completed a cycle, so they integrated InfoLight®, which emits a small red LED spot on the floor when finished. Quiet, flexible, and powerful.

How to Pick the Perfect Paint

How to Pick the Perfect Paint

Eggshell, satin, semi-gloss? What goes where?

Here’s a handy guide for what paint types work best in different areas of the home:

  • Flat: Best for ceilings and low traffic areas; a matte finish is best at concealing imperfections.
  • Eggshell: Best for rooms with moderate traffic; works well for hallways or formal living rooms. Eggshell has a slight sheen and gloss.
  • Satin: Best for moderate to high traffic areas; can usually be wiped clean easily, so it works well for children’s rooms, kitchens, or bathrooms.
  • Semi-Gloss: Has a slightly glossy appearance. Like satin, this is easy to clean so it works well for kitchens and bathrooms
  • High-Gloss: High shine – works well in areas with lots of light and is typically used to highlight interesting architectural elements; also good for painted trim (baseboards, moldings, etc.). Highest durability but lowest ability to conceal an imperfection.

Color Sampling

Many companies provide swatches or paint samples for you to try out at home. Swatches tend to be too small to really get a real feel for what the color will look like in your space. And, paint samples are not always an exact match with the final product. Plus, taking the time to paint and waiting for it to dry to see the final color is time-consuming. Then, what to do with all the paint samples?

Samplize — A new, innovative peel and stick paint product keeps the process simple and efficient. According to the website, “The samples have the same effect as paint on a wall surface. They provide the kind of accuracy and texture that was only before achieved through purchasing sample paint and doing all the work in-house. Best of all, the samples eliminate environmental waste created by surplus sample paint, which is rarely disposed of in the correct way.” The samples come in 12′ x 12′ repositionable flexible decals, so you can use them on flat surfaces or wrap around corners.

Texture Adds Interest

Texture Adds Interest

Creating textured walls that add interest without overwhelming your living space can be a challenge. One easy way to add interest and soft texture is by adding white shiplap to your space. The unique design is perfect for the popular modern farmhouse look, and your budget.

Another option is to add textured monochromatic tile, like the Ambra Collection from Artistic Tile. Each piece is hand carved and honed to polish and shape the stone, giving it a wave-like appearance. You will instantly feel more serene as you look at the gentle flowing design of each tile. The Ambra Collection is available in six color options and because it is natural stone, it will accentuate any décor.

Bringing the outside elements in has never been more elegant.

Cooking without Grease Odor

Cooking without Grease Odor

From the company that pioneered mixing cutting edge design with innovative range hood technology, comes a new idea in stress-free cooking. Elica’s NikolaTesla induction cooktop is designed to make cooking and clean-up a hassle-free process. Elica incorporated the standard, highly desirable qualities of an induction cooktop such as rapid boil and easy cleaning, and took it one step farther by integrating a fully functional range hood into the cooktop itself. The central fan replaces the typical range hood and gathers grease and odors without compromising design. It also has a built-in double bridge function that combines two adjacent cooking zones to adjust for large pots. A 10-speed touch pad control system allows you to easily control the fan, so all you have to worry about is answering the doorbell!
