Line the base of your cabinet with this Sink Base Drip Tray from Rev-A-Shelf to help prevent damage from water leaks and spillage. The tray is designed with a slope that will push water out of the cabinet onto the floor, so you are aware of a leak and the bottom of the cabinet is protected from water damage. The tray, which is resistant to most household chemicals, comes in a variety of sizes and can be trimmed to fit with a utility knife. The tray is available on Amazon.com and Walmart.

As cabinet people we come across dozens of different types of tile and hundreds of different designs. Some are great, some not so. But at the Dwell on Design show we were totally blown away by Gemstone Tile LLC’s product. Their raw material is turquoise from the Kingman Mine in Arizona, which produces some 500 variations of this natural blue-green material. It becomes a beautiful handcrafted tile for the luxury – and deep pocketed – market. All orders are custom made for the individual client.

Neo-Metro is a California manufacturing company that designs, engineers, manufactures, and markets, environmentally friendly luxury hospitality & residential custom plumbing fixtures. We came across them at the Dwell on Design Show. Their products are very striking. Here are some examples. One of them features the Dyson Airblade hand dryer in a faucet that we featured in a recent post. Go to their website here.
We ran into BEST Range Hoods at the Dwell on Design Show. We really liked their combination of sleek Italian design and top of the line engineering. BEST describes their product this way: “The entire line of BEST range hoods is emotion made tangible, and art made functional. Unique in shape and design, these range hoods enable you to express your individuality with a twist on the traditional, or with truly one-of-a-kind styles.” And from what we saw at the show, this sounds about right.

Our cabinets are beautiful but they have to work. In part this means that our cabinet drawers have to slide easily, close softly and carry the load safely and smoothly.

These drawer slides have an incredibly smooth full-extension action combined with a self closing mechanism that engages 2″ before the drawer is closed.
