Technology has permeated almost every aspect of our lives from the workplace to our homes. With the growing influence of Millennials on the housing industry, it’s no surprise high-tech features have staked claim to the kitchen, as well.
According to the 2018 U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trends Study, faucets are the fourth most-upgraded item during kitchen renovations, following only countertops, sinks and backsplashes. It only makes sense then that technology is impacting how we experience one of our most basic needs: water. Check out these new high-tech options your tech-savvy clients will soon be clamoring for.
Convenience, Redefined
The latest touch faucets capitalize on reliable capacitance technology—the same that is used for smartphones and other touch-activated devices—to make turning faucets on and off easy. Touch-activated technology is even available for beverage faucets that tap into under-sink water filtration systems.
For clients that want to go completely hands-free, there are options for the bathroom that offer absolute freedom by eliminating the hunt for the “sweet spot” associated with infrared sensing technologies.

Clearer Sight to “Just Right”
Your clients will never again experience the rude awakening of stepping into a cold shower thanks to innovative shower heads and hand showers that display the actual temperature of the water. Shower heads with temperature-sensing technology feature easy-to-read digital color indicators that will show your clients when the water temperature is just right. For families with young children, this technology also brings peace of mind that the water is at a safe temperature for bath time.

Less Spots, Less Cleaning
Who has time to fuss over a smudged faucet or shower? Your busy clients will thank you for telling them about new options like our SpotShield® Technology with Antimicrobial Protection on the Finish. The high-tech finish resists water spots, fingerprints and stains by helping to prevent odor- and stain-causing bacterial and fungal growth on the surface of the faucet itself.
