Months before they hit the shelves and catalogs, companies' newest kitchen products debut to homebuilders and industry insiders at the International Builders' Show. This Old House was on the trade show floor spotting the latest products and trends for the kitchen—and here are a few of our finds.
Delta's new Allora pull-down kitchen faucet has a magnetized connection between the movable wand and the fixed spout. Pull-downs, great for their versatile spray range and their modern, industrial edge, usually have a twist-and-lock connection. This one saves a step and the action is satisfyingly smooth.
Shown with a built-in soap dispenser for approx. $343, Deltafaucet.com.
