          I have been using towel warmers for many years now and all in all this is a pretty nice one, but I wish for just a couple more dollars on the manufacturers part that they would include the wall plate that would make a hardwired option available. In my mind a plug-in towel rack stands on the floor, not a wall mounted permanent rack. This is a good size and style for what it is though.

          A statement in any kitchen, the K7 Medium Semi-Pro kitchen faucet is the perfect assistant to home chefs. Standing 21-1/2-in. tall, this faucet features a professional, pull-out spray head which can be maneuvered 360 degrees for maximum convenience. The locking dual spray control allows users to switch between two spray modes—regular flow and spray—with a simple push of the button. GROHE SpeedClean technology protects the spray nozzle against limescale buildup. When not in use, the spray head is kept in place with a 9 3/16-in. arm that swivels 140 degrees. The handle is enabled with GROHE SilkMove for a lifetime of smooth operation technology for effortless, precise control of the water flow and rotates just 30 degrees backward and 70 degrees forward to avoid backsplash clearance issues. The K7 Medium Semi-Pro kitchen faucet has a 1.75 gpm flow rate and is offered in durable GROHE InfinityFinish for scratch and tarnish-resistant surfaces for a lifetime of beauty chrome or SuperSteel InfinityFinish.

          I am hesitant to give this five stars since I haven't had it long enough to really give a good opinion on performance, but it looks great so far! It has that commercial appearance that has been around for awhile now, but the bar front to back means it is of the newest style. It is unclear just what the term "semi-pro" is meant to mean and although pretty pricey it seems of a very good quality.

          This is a great new futuristic look in faucets. Due to its ultra slim look I would love to also see it in a 4" mini-spread, as these are so very difficult to find! One might think because of the slim look the water flow would be limited, but that is certainly not the case, this has a nice water pressure. Looks very good in any of the finishes pictured.

          This sink came as a somewhat lighter gray color than my monitor made it appear to look, but that is not that big a deal I guess. It is a nice looking enough sink. I do like the composites as it seems every kitchen has a stainless sink, whether new or old. This gives a different and unexpected look.The offset drains look a little strange in the picture, but once a faucet is installed they come in handy.

Offering flexibility for a variety of tasks, the Pull-Out Sprayer head provides three functions, including pause, so you can easily move inside and outside of the sink.

          This looks like a new style for faucets, and I love the chunky, industrial style of it. It looks somewhat robotic, actually. I am expecting faucets and other kitchen hardware will soon be following the black stainless look, and this is a style that would look great with that particular finish. Great, heavy build, cetainly seems built to last a lifetime.

          I see medium density everywhere, but is it better or worse for a sub floor than regular plywood.

          Answer: 
          MDF is made of wood fibers, glue, water, and parrafin wax. Its advantages are there are no knots or grain pattern as with regular wood so it is smooth and uniform and it can be less expensive, it does not expand or contract when sealed, disadvantages are more moisture penetrable and nails and screws can be less easy to work with it. Also may release formaldehyde when cut.

          Answer: 
          I don't see any reason why not, I will be using it in mine. It seems to me any flooring suitable for the kitchen, which can and does involve wet, slippery conditions, is also appropriate for a bath. Perhaps the old adage of small room, small tile influenced the omission, though today that rule is meant to be discarded.
