NORTH OLMSTED, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- Forget the bedroom. The kitchen is where the magic really happens: it's the place where your family gathers to share the happenings of each day. It's where meals are prepared with love... and begrudgingly cleaned up. It's also where bills are paid, cell phones and tablets are charged and memorable moments take place. The kitchen is the space that truly sees -- and does -- it all; it's time to honor the hub of the home.
"Homeowners are constantly demanding more from their kitchens," said Tom Tylicki, wholesale senior product manager, Moen. "We know that it's much more than a spot to store food, cook and clean the dishes. That's why Moen is always in touch with today's homeowner; we keep their needs top-of-mind to ensure we have the right product mix to fit the multi-tasking and multi-faceted needs of their kitchens."
Moen is excited to expand its portfolio of kitchen products and accessories. In addition to a vast array of faucets and sinks to meet any design style and deliver the most sophisticated technology, Moen is launching a number of new items to help make tasks in and around the kitchen sink easier.
New Kitchen Collections
In 2014, Moen is adding a number of new kitchen faucet collections to its portfolio, including:
- Brookshire - The traditionally styled Brookshire kitchen faucet is one of the first pullout faucets to feature Moen's innovative Reflex® system for effortless self-retraction and functionality in the kitchen.
- Etch - As the popularity of transitional styling continues to grow, Moen is pleased to introduce the new Etch collection -- a full-kitchen suite that adds the perfect amount of glamour to today's premium kitchen.
- Tilt - With modern design also on the rise, Moen has launched the Tilt pullout kitchen faucet to provide consumers with a new, stylish option. Featuring a sleek, cylindrical design, Tilt offers a compact and contemporary style that works well in even the smallest of kitchens.
New Stainless Steel Sink Styles
Moen continues to answer homeowner needs by expanding its popular 1800 Series of stainless steel sinks to include new shapes, configurations and depths. Moen's 1800 Series of sinks offers high-quality construction, featuring 18-gauge stainless steel for a solid base and reliable performance for any kitchen task. Driven by the most-popular remodel and showroom customer requests, new sinks within the 1800 Series include new Apron-Front sink options, a Professional sink line and expanded D-Shaped sinks.
Once a homeowner has found the right sink, new accessories can add to the functionality and help create the perfect kitchen. New accessories from Moen in 2014 include:
- Bottom grids - available in a variety of sizes for the perfect fit to protect the sink bottom from tough tasks or heavy cookware
- Rinse baskets - custom designed to fit the shape of the sink to hold fragile dishes and protect the sink surface
- Cutting boards - made of hard wood, each board fits the size and shape of each Moen sink for added cooking simplicity
As a commodity in the kitchen, most homes don't have a convenient place devoted to hanging the kitchen towel. Moen answers this household need with stylish accessories that perfectly match or coordinate with your faucet in both style and finish. With more than 40 collections, Moen offers a variety of hooks, towel bars and towel rings, ideal for installing on sides of cabinets, kitchen islands or near the sink, as well as cabinet knobs and pulls -- to ensure a functional solution that's perfectly coordinated.
Moen is helping homeowners upgrade the style of their soap dispensers with four new designs to coordinate with both the style and finish of today's kitchens. This line of premium soap dispensers features three design styles, traditional, transitional or modern, to coordinate with any décor. With easy, above-the-counter refill, there's no need to go underneath the sink.
According to Moen consumer research, 38 percent of individuals looking to remodel their kitchen over the next 12 months have an interest in purchasing a filtered water dispenser. Moen is responding to customers' needs for clean drinking water at the sink with the new Sip beverage faucet collection. The filtering faucets will be available in traditional, transitional and modern styles to coordinate with any decorating taste or Moen kitchen faucet style.
Increase the functionality and design throughout your kitchen space with the latest innovations and technology from Moen. For more information about all of Moen's new products for the kitchen, visit moen.com or call 1-800-BUY-MOEN (1-800-289-6636).

The invention, finalized in 1939, revolutionized the plumbing industry and set the stage for 75 years of innovation.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.
