- Greener – The word ‘green’ gets thrown around everywhere now, but the products aren’t always as environmentally friendly as they claim. Paper Stone, however, isn’t one of them. This material is made out of 100% post-consumer recycled paper that is saturated with a resin that is completely petrol free. The non-porous surface makes it a perfect material to use as a kitchen or bathroom countertop. Just because it is a green product doesn’t mean that they skimped out on the style and beauty of the material—Paper Stone comes in nine different colors to fit any style or color scheme.
- Simpler – To us, the best kind of innovation is one that makes your life a little easier. That’s why we developed the SimpliciKey electronic lock system - to simplify how you get into your house. Use the remote control key fob to unlock your front door from up to 50 feet away, or type in a personalized passcode on the hidden keypad. Plus, the keypad is a great way to make sure you’re never locked out again! Of course, the SimpliciKey system also has a traditional key.
- More High Tech – Let's face it, old school blinds and curtains do not always fit the aesthetic of your home. In 2012, bring your windows into the 21st century with Glass Apps. Their product sends an electrical charge through your windows to change the opacity of the surface. In less than ten milliseconds your window goes from fully transparent to opaque enough to block more than 98% of UV rays. This electrical charge only uses .65 Watts/sqft, meaning that even at 100sqft you are using less energy than a light bulb.
Incorporating these innovations in your home make your life simpler, greener, and just a little cooler.
We’ve always got our eye on the horizon for innovations like these. But we want to know: What other innovations are you considering for your home this year?
