Product Extra: K&B Style
The new Gaia Tech kitchen line in corporates high-tech components as well as the maximum usage of space by utilizing and optimizing interior and exterior space and surface areas. The line is designed to fit smaller spaces and attract homeowners interested in concealing elements of their kitchens to create more adaptive-use spaces. For example, engineered sliding components allow the island to be used as a dining or entertaining surface, or pushed open to reveal a built-in cooktop and prep area. A storage and laundry area is enclosed behind etched glass sliders on a rail system. The Gaia Tech kitchen is also eco-sensitive, using recycled and regenerated wood from certified sources, as well as non-toxic laminates, aluminum, glass, and technical veneers, and can contribute to LEED projects.

Cool & Smart
Updates to Fisher & Paykel's counter-depth French door refrigerator include an Energy Star qualification, internal water filter, depper door bins, and cantilevered shelving for easier cleaning. AT 19.5 cubic feet, the counter-depth unit offers more interior space than similarly sized alternatives, the maker says. Additionally, Active Smart technology allows the refrigerator to learn usage patterns and adjust its operation accordingly, so the unit will remain at optimal cooling temperatures, even during periods of frequent door opening and closing.
