A plethora of innovative new products eases the pain of remodeling

MARCH/APRIL 2012

 

Magic Marble
Porcelanosa’s Recife floor tile is a durable, low-maintenance ceramic tile that replicates the look of marble, down to the emblematic veins and variations. Recife tiles are available in three colorways and multiple sizes, with matching wall and mosaic tiles. Pictured here, the Porcelanosa Khoa bathtub and Krabi vanity complete the look of a bath clad floor to ceiling in Recife tiles.

Made in America
HomeGrown Hardware, Liberty Hardware’s newest line of ceramic and metal knobs and pulls, showcases the handcrafted work of American artisans throughout the country. The collection is intended to encourage the purchase of handcrafted American products and to spur economic growth within each artisan’s region. libertyhardware.com

A Bold Move
DECOLAV’s new Incandescence Collection Vibrant Resin and Tempered Glass Vessels come in five shapes and a range of colors, including transparent natural glass, designer frosted and metallic shades. Pictured here, the Rage 2800, a rectangular, above-counter basin. decolav.com

Light my Fire
Spark Modern Fires has just introduced the 36-inch wide Vent Free Vu Thru fireplace, the first vent-free gas fireplace that is open on two sides. The Vu Thru provides a clean-burning flame and can be installed without a chimney or vent. It includes an electronic ignition, a tray for fire-proof decorative objects like rocks and glass and a matte-black interior. sparkfires.com

Weathered Wood
The 2012 Heritage Timber Edition from DuChateau Floors replicates the patina of distressed, reclaimed building materials through the application of scrapes, nail holes and notches to white oak, as well as a weathering process that creates warm brown and worn gray hues in the wood. The FSC-certified collection is available in five finishes. duchateaufloors.com

Bath Time
The Chelsea collection from Hastings Tile & Bath uses Silk, a matte white composite surface, to create bathroom fixtures with distinctive curving, organic forms. Pictured here, the Chelsea Silk Tub, with overflow and chrome tub drain, echoes the form of a reclining figure with a unique horizontally curving top. Pairs nicely with the Chelsea Silk Vessel Basin. hastingstilebath.com

Pencil Perfect
Best Tile recently introduced Hazel, a collection of pencil-thin Spanish porcelain tiles, to its custom tile series, Mora Medley. The tiles are made using state-of-the-art digital ink-jet technology that approximates the look of blue and green stone. Durable and maintenance-free, they are perfect for use on floors as well as walls. Available at Best Tile. besttile.com

Double the Fun
Long popular and affordable, Pergo floors now give way to Pergo XP, a high-performance laminate that combines realistic design with superior surface protection. The company claims it has double the resistance and durability of ordinary residential laminate floors. Available exclusively at The Home Depot. homedepot.com

The Look of Limestone
Viatera quartz now includes limestone colors as part of its Urban Chic collection. Available through LG Hausys, Viatera is a non-porous quartz countertop material that is stain-resistant and hygienic. The new colors, Vintage and Natural Limestone, are available in jumbo-size slabs for easy installation. lghausys.com

Let There Be Light
The new Cilindro Quatrefoil Fabric Pendant from Meyda Custom Lighting is designed in a transitional style, with a warm beige fabric shade and acrylic diffuser. The quatrefoil motif (a flower with four petals) distinguishes the fixture, which boasts hardware that’s hand-finished in mahogany bronze. meyda.com

Door Ways
Masonite introduces the Router-Carved Interior Door collection. Made from medium-density fiberboard (MDF), it includes two lines: The value-driven CYMA line with 65 standard designs and the high-end Bolection line, a custom offering that gives homeowners the opportunity to create their own unique look. masonite.com
