Design has become an Avenue to achieve a quality of life in your home. Some of the trends I've seen this year which lend themselves to this theory are as follows:

LUTRON, the original industry standard in control lighting, now offers a full range of products implementing the latest in smart-home technology. Lighting and window treatments can now be integrated into touch-screen technology such as Savant and Crestron to create a whole home solution.

TOTO NEOREST WATER CLOSET - This is the utmost in personal hygiene. The various settings allow an individual to accomplish the highest level of comfort.

HASTINGS TILES has definitely reclaimed their position as an industry leader in the latest contemporary tile design. The same can be said for KOHLER with the grand opening of their New York showroom featuring more bathroom vanities than any other vendor at this time.
