Embossed Bathroom Pedestal Basin

The freestanding round pedestal basin from Blu Bathworks has a floral embossed pattern that adds a touch of elegance to a sleek bathroom fixture perfect for today’s modern bathroom.

The SA0505 basin is manufactured from the company’s own blu.stone solid surface material in matte or gloss finish.  Blu.stone provides the look and feel of natural stone but is stain, scratch and impact resistant. Custom colors and no embossing are also available. The basin includes an overflow, a removable concealed drain plate and a polished chrome waste.

 The compact 17 3/4″ x 32 5/8″ size makes it ideal for use in a powder room or built into a niche in a custom master bathroom.

The SA0505 qualifies for LEED points.

Party Central

If the Kitchen is the room everyone gathers in at a party, the Amana Quick Tap™ Entertainment Refrigerator is appliance they are gathering around.

The Amana Quick Tap has an integrated beverage reservoir that conveniently holds and dispenses up to 2.5 liters of cold drinks from punch to margaritas.  The reservoir is removable for easy refilling and cleaning. The dispenser is located on the refrigerator door.

The Amana Quick Tap is not a large appliance at only 17.6 cubic feet but it gives you the ability to offer a signature drink while entertaining without having to drag out a cooler. I think it is ideal for a guest/pool house or game/party room in your home.

The Quicktap is also equipped with a 5-bottle wine rack and a child lockout.  It is not energy star rated. The Quick Tap refrigerator is available in red or silver for approximately $800.
