Danze Opulence Faucets Provide Vintage Elegance to Kitchens and Bathrooms Alike

If you're a homeowner who prefers the elegant look of classical design over today's more industrial modes, than the Danze Opulence Plumbing Collection is perfect for your kitchen and bathroom.

Opulence Faucets are especially notable for their curved spouts and rounded handles, both trademarks of a classically informed vintage design style. A beautiful Antique Copper finish adds extra elegance to this Centerset Lavatory Faucet.

The Opulence Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet (shown here in Oil-Rub Bronze finish) features a two-function spray/aerated pull-out spout. The single-handle knob effectively disguises contemporary ease-of-use with an antique design rarely seen in today's kitchen sink faucets.

Both faucets are available in antique copper, chrome, oil rub bronze, polished brass, polished nickel, satin black, and stainless steel finishes. Both faucets are compliant with California and Vermont lead-free requirements. Danze's Opulence Plumbing Collection also includes a variety of gorgeous vintage-style showerheads, roman tub faucets, and bathroom accessories that will enrich your bathroom with a fully harmonized decor.

Happy Holidays From Need Plumbing Supplies

Season's Greetings and Happy Holidays from the entire staff at

Moen & California's Lead-Free Legislation

In last Thursday's post, we touched upon some legislation that California enacted earlier this year. Health And Safety Code 116875-116880 states that
"No person shall use any pipe, pipe or plumbing fitting
or fixture, solder, or flux that is not lead free in the installation
or repair of any public water system or any plumbing in a facility
providing water for human consumption..."
In short, this means California now requires that all plumbing fixtures (including faucets) meet new standards. Understandably, for the online shopper it could get to be a pain trying to figure out which faucets meet these new standards and which do not.

Fortunately, Moen has made things much easier. Any Moen faucet with a model number beginning with the letters CA meets California's new lead-free requirements. Most of Moen's new kitchen and bathroom faucets are available in both lead-free and non-lead-free models, so if you're a California resident shopping for Moen faucets online, make sure you purchase a faucet that has a model number beginning with CA.

Toilet Components And Maintenance

This video from KlutzGuide explains the inner-mechanisms of toilets, their maintenance, and how being mindful of them can help you save on your home's water usage.

By far one of the worst parts of the winter morning is the bone-chilling sensation one experiences after stepping out of a hot shower. Such cold can freeze a frown on even the most cheerful faces. Fortunately, Mr. Steam has the perfect remedy for these winter woes.

Mr. Steam Towel Warmers provide warm cozy towels that prevent the winter morning's chill from spoiling holiday spirits. Each electric towel warmer contains a built-in stainless steel heater that emits a controlled, quiet heat, while the hydronic towel warmers are heated using the house's closed-loop hot water heating system. Mr. Steam towel warmers come in a variety of models, including wall-mounts, pivoting wall-mounts, and free standing units (shown above). All models are constructed from 100% solid brass for efficient heating performance and excellent finishing quality. They are available in either brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze, polished chrome, or polished nickel finish.

For full optimization, Mr. Steam programmable timers offer a state-of-the-art digital control that combines maximum heating performance and energy efficiency by automatically starting and stopping towel warmers at programmed times.

With Mr. Steam towel warmers homeowners need not fear Jack Frost's icy clutches waiting beyond their shower doors. Mother nature can be a cruel mistress, but Mr. Steam has got your back, letting you enter winter wonderland on your own terms.

Kohler Carafe Faucet Provides Both Clean Design & Clean Water

Rounding off our week-long look at Kohler kitchen sink faucets is the Carafe Filtered Water Faucet. The Carafe introduces a sophisticated level of functionality to contemporary European kitchen styling. It combines all the functional benefits of a single lever kitchen faucet with an integrated water filter faucet. A separate quarter turn knob controls filtered water delivery. The 360 degree swivel spout with 9" clearance make this faucet ideal for prep and entertainment sink applications.

Like the Simplice kitchen faucet, the Carafe is available in either polished chrome (shown above) or vibrant stainless finish. Its clean European design and integrated filter technology makes it a perfect addition to stylish contemporary kitchens that include more than one sink.

Keep It Simple With Kohler's Simplice Kitchen Faucet

Like Kohler's Evoke Kitchen Faucet, the Simplice pull-down kitchen faucet features ProMotion technology, a fully-rotatable high-arch spout, and three function sprayhead. However, there are some important differences. Perhaps most noticeable of these is the faucet's sleek curvature. The Simplice seamlessly melds the elegant simplicity of traditional faucet design with the ergonomic utility of modern faucet technology. The three function sprayhead utilizes solid sculpted buttons that enhance operation even with wet and soapy hands.

Kohler's Simplice kitchen sink faucet is available in either polished chrome (shown above) or vibrant stainless finish, and its classical design makes the faucet adaptable to any kitchen decor.

For the consumer this means reduced remodeling work and simple installation.

When the holiday season arrives, homeowners are often left scrambling for space in their kitchens. Kohler HiRise kitchen faucets provide the space needed to insure that pot filling and dish washing will not disrupt your kitchen's function and flow.

Whether you choose polished chrome (shown above), vibrant polished nickel, or vibrant stainless, you're provided with a top-quality finish that exceeds industry standards.
