HOME DÉCOR

Mind YOUR MEASURING TAPE THE KITCHEN IS THE MOST POPULAR ROOM IN THE HOME. ITS RENOVATION MIGHT BE THE BIGGEST UNDERTAKING YOUR HOUSE WILL EVER EXPERIENCE, AND AS SUCH SHOULD NEVER BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF ITS TRANSFORMATION. YOUR COUNTER MAY BE CLOSER THAN IT APPEARS It’s easy to get carried away with appliance shopping and decor selections. One of the most common complications you may run into when selecting your dream stove or fridge is not leaving enough space around it. To avoid this potential painstaking mistake, we recommend careful planning, measuring and diagramming. This will ensure that adequate aisle, walking, counter and extension space is available.

NO KITCHEN IS AN ISLAND The kitchen island is a wonderful point of interest for any kitchen, as long as it fits. For the best results, treat it as an accent. It’s important to maintain ample space between

other cupboards and appliances, which usually translates to about four feet. It’s also important to remember that the kitchen is a working, functional space. The length and size of your island should never compromise the utility of the entire room.

FITTED FOR FUNCTION Understanding the needs of your home is essential. It’s also important to take the time to select an adequate material that is capable of withstanding the pressures on it. When it comes to family, Caesarstone offers exceptional selections in quartz that are resistant to scratches and stains, a great option for those with small children.

A KITCHEN STAPLE After all is said and done, space is the elusive component in kitchen design. Appliance, flooring and countertop selections can interfere with the functional aspects of design. We recommend that before you finalize any renovation plans, make sure you have the space you need for your smaller appliances, cookware and utensils. caesarstone.ca

hen one of Canada’s leading plastic surgeons, Dr. Jamil Asaria (a married, father of three), selected Audax to oversee the design of his new home, he had never contemplated Audax’s bold proposal that the home be built above his plastic surgery clinic. However, Dr. Asaria and his wife immediately appreciated the unique opportunity presented by Audax, and enthusiastically accepted the proposal to convert the second floor into a living space. ▹

TECHNOLOGY

SHUTTING THE DOOR ON ODOR

16

The laundry team at GE Appliances, a Haier company, announced a new, revolutionary laundry system designed to help prevent the biggest complaint in front load washers. The UltraFresh Front Load washers, engineered to stay fresh and clean, use first-of-its-kind technology to help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria without the need for owners to wipe down their machine or leave the door open after each load. Front load washing machines were designed for high-efficiency operation – they use the least water and energy, are gentler on clothes and have more capacity; however, 46 percent of consumers say that mold or odor is their top frustration when it comes to considering front load washers and many do not want to leave the door open to avoid the problem. In fact, one in two front load owners move back to top load washers because of smell and associated maintenance.


“Consumers are searching for solutions and coming up with ways to put a bandage on the issue, like cleaning the washer after each use, wiping down the gasket and most commonly propping the door open,” said Peter Pepe, Vice President, Product Management for laundry at GE Appliances. “Our new UltraFresh Front Load washer is the first in the industry to solve for the issues that lead to stink, making care and maintenance along with laundry chores much easier for the consumer.” • Drain the residual water: Moisture is the enemy when it comes to keeping a washer fresh and clean. GE Appliances developed a wider gasket that is angled to allow water to fully drain after the wash cycle. • Dry while keeping the door closed: The new UltraFresh Vent System with OdorBlock™ creates a revolutionary new airflow at the touch of a button. After the wash cycle, the unit pulls in and circulates fresh air, removing moisture from the door, gasket and basket. • Defend with exclusive Microban® technology: The global leader in antimicrobial additives and odor control solutions developed a unique antimicrobial technology exclusively for the GE UltraFresh Front Load washers. Microban’s technology is built into the gasket, dispenser and pump during manufacturing to help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria in parts of the washer where moisture could linger. The new UltraFresh Front Load washers also introduce a variety of exciting features driven by consumer data and insights to make laundry easier and more enjoyable, including:

• New Colours: Two new matte finishes – Satin Nickel and Sapphire Blue – join White and Diamond Gray to meet changing consumer colour preferences. Matte finishes are at the forefront of design and help to create laundry rooms that no longer get banished to basements. • SmartDispense: Holds an entire bottle of liquid laundry detergent and senses the weight and fibres contained within each load, releases the perfect amount of detergent to do the job without the mess of measuring or the need to store the bottle. Fill it and forget it for up to 32 loads. • Flexible Doors: Both the washer and dryer doors can be reversed to adapt to each laundry room’s configuration, making load-out and load-in to the dryer easier. • Large Capacity: Holds more pants, towels and bedding with larger capacity offered in a shallow footprint. • Dynamic Balancing Technology (dBT)™: New balancing technology in the machines keeps cycles quiet and efficient by proactively sensing balanced loads before accelerating spin speeds. • Smart: UltraFresh Front Load washers and dryers are WiFi connected allowing for a remote start – so clothes don’t sit all day waiting to be moved from the washer to the dryer. Washer Link connects to the dryer to automatically modify cycle settings based on the most recent wash cycle completed. UltraFresh Front Load washers will be available in major retailers and local independent dealers in January 2020. ◆ geappliances.com
