New Reverse Osmosis/Filter Faucet from ANO

New for 2018 is the Vatura RD-101 Reverse Osmosis/Filter faucet.

This new faucet has a larger reach than most faucets supplied with RO systems, has a smaller body so it does not take up a lot of space, matches the brushed finish of the Infinity faucets, and has a small tip so hard water does not build up.

 

Like all the Infinity Faucets the new Vatura faucet is solid stainless steel so it matches sink and other Infinity stainless steel faucets, truly lead-free not just low lead, has no finish to come off and has a 10-year limited warranty.

Lighting your kitchen

The kitchen is the working center of your home. Lighting can make or break the design. It can also be adjusted from bright food prep illumination to cozy intimate family dining.

Plan your lighting early because relocating lighting can be expensive.

Layered lighting means providing various lighting systems to highlight different features and for different uses; task lighting for food prep, general lighting, accent lighting to highlight artwork or unique features.

Add ambient lighting to create a warm welcoming such as central lighting, table hanging lamp, or downlights at the perimeter.

Add accent lighting to highlight special features.

Choose lighting that matches your home’s style

Do not undersize the lighting or overwhelm the room with bright light.

Control lighting so a variety or looks can be achieved.

What a Consumer Needs to Know About Purchasing a Stainless Steel Sink

What a consumer needs to know when purchasing a stainless steel sink

  • You need to select your sink carefully because all sinks are different and if the sink fails it can only be replaced with a sink from the same manufacturer. You don’t want to replace a bad sink with another bad sink.
  • Make sure you get certified 304 stainless steel, so the sink matches kitchen appliances and the finish last longer. Many sinks today are made of lesser steel such as 301 or completely unknown 301 stainless has less chromium so it is not a lustrous and has less nickel so the finish will not last as long. Uncertified sinks can be anything.
  • Sinks with machine finish are more consistent. Hand finished sinks will have an inconsistent finish, particularly on the top rail.
  • Sound pads are often sold as a benefit but almost always the more sound pads, the cheaper sink because they are making up for thinner or poor quality steel. A good sound pad on the bottom is all that is required on a good sink. Most sound pads are made from recycled tire and can have an unpleasant odor in the enclosed space under the sink.
  • The best sinks are individual drawn (pressed) and then welded together. This makes method produces a heavier and quieter sink with less stress and stretch marks.
  • Building codes require sinks be certified by an independent agency (usually UPC) to meet ASTM 112.19.3. To be certified the sink needs to have the manufacturer’s name or logo and the stamp from the certifying agency. If both are not present then the sink does not meet code. Many manufacturers self-certify or just stamp the sink as certified without the actual certification.
  • Who is responsible for the warranty. If the sink does not have the manufacturer’s name or logo, who will handle the warranty? Make sure sink experts are standing behind the sink not just importers who buy, sell and then walk away.
