Mad about music? Equip your shower with Kohler’s new Moxie singing shower head that streams music as well as water for just $199. Beer lover? How about an $8,000 Brew Cave walk-in refrigerator that will keep 30 cases of beer, six kegs, and a draft dispensing system at perfect temperature? Conflicted about whether to hang a painting or TV over the fireplace? Hang both. With a fine art TV cover, your television is disguised as a piece of elegant artwork. With the simple press of a button, your canvas painting quietly rolls up inside the frame to reveal your flat panel HDTV.
These are just three of the new features you might find in today’s homes. While you might consider these amenities a bit frivolous, they are indicative of the small custom conveniences which homeowners can choose from based on their interests, lifestyles and budgets.
