New materials are always being introduced for home decor, but it this case, what’s new is actually old. Reclaimed wood has become a top pick for trendy home design. Used in living spaces, kitchens or baths, and on furniture cabinetry, wall treatments and small products.
Reclaimed wood is old wood that has already seen a life as another product that was torn down, damaged, or discarded. There is a burgeoning market for businesses that recover this type of wood and prepare it to be used again in a new way.
Using reclaimed wood helps create a warm and natural look in any space and it also has the added benefit of being eco-friendly by reusing something that would have otherwise been discarded.
Reclaimed wood is proving to be a durable option that looks great and breathes new life into an old space.

Huge amounts of energy are spent every year on piping clean, drinkable water right into ours homes. So what can we do to minimize wasted water, lower our own costs, and reduce environmental impact at the same time?
1. Check for small leaks from faucets, toilets, or pipes.
Even a small drip from any of these sources can add up to many gallons of wasted water every day.
2. Make sure your pipes are insulated.
This is cheap and easy to do and you will save on the water wasted while you are waiting for it to heat up.
3. Don’t use the toilet as a trash can.
Gallons of water are wasted when the toilet is used to flush just a small bit of trash or facial tissue.
4. Wait until you have a full load before running your dishwasher.
Having a full load of dishes will make the most of the water and soap used by your dishwasher.
5. Install water-saving shower heads and low-flow faucets.
Ultra Faucets has many options available for kitchen and bath faucets that will save on water while still offering great performance. We offer water-efficient faucets that comply with the latest 2015 California green legislation – CalGreen. They have a flow rate of 1.8gpm (for kitchen faucets) and 1.2gpm (for lavatory faucets), versus industry standard ASME A112.18.1/CSA B125.1 of 2.2gpm.
If you attended the 2015 National Hardware show in Las Vegas this year, you may have seen the first public unveiling of our new E-Touch Faucet Converter.
The new E-Touch is a fully contained electronic unit that can convert almost any existing faucet into a touch activated faucet. It is wonderfully easy to install. You simply disconnect your existing water supply lines, connect them to the E-Touch, and then connect the E-Touch water supply lines back to your faucet. Then attach the capacitance sensor clamp to the metal shank on the underside of your faucet, connect the supplied battery power pack or optional AC power converter, and you’re done!
The E-Touch will be a revolutionary alternative to existing integrated touch faucet systems because you have the advantage of being able to take almost any faucet style you desire and turn it into a touch activated faucet for a fraction of the cost.
Contact Ultra Faucets if you would like more information, or if you are a retailer who is interested in the opportunity to carry this revolutionary new kitchen and bath product.
