“Smart homes” have been getting more and more attention in the contemporary design world, and for good reason. With the uptick in appliances and home systems that foreground precise, remote control, homeowners have the opportunity to conveniently and ecologically manage their highest-consumption rooms. In California, where water recycling and conservation are hot topics, we’re especially interested to help our clients customize their homes toward more environmentally responsible solutions.

Presets are one of the most timesaving features of many new “smart” systems, and we find that clients enjoy the extra mile of customization that they afford.

The Dornbracht e-sink is part of an exciting trend toward re-imagining the old-fashioned kitchen. (Check out our recent post on modular refrigeration to get more inspiration for crafting the right kitchen for your lifestyle.) Beyond presets, the sink includes such conveniences as a foot sensor that allows for hands-free operation and a button-controlled electronic drain. These features allow you to maximize your usage to avoid wastage.
