Tech-Savvy Austin Home Features Thoughtfully Designed Moen® Products

NORTH OLMSTED, OH--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2015) - New year, new town, new HGTV Smart Home! HGTV has chosen Austin, Texas as the perfect haven for the HGTV Smart Home 2015*. Inspired by the design of a modern farmhouse, this tech-friendly home is an everyday get-away with a rustic Texas feel. Located in the beautiful Zilker Park neighborhood, a south central suburb of Austin, the approximately 2,300-square-foot home offers all the comforts today's tech-focused families need, and Moen is pleased to be a sponsor for the third year in a row.

"At Moen, we strive to provide thoughtfully designed -- and technologically advanced -- products to homeowners that make everyday tasks easier in today's kitchens and bathrooms," said Timothy McDonough, vice president, global brand marketing, Moen. "We're committed to creating products that deliver meaningful innovation and useful features, including offering high-tech conveniences that align perfectly with the home's focus on smart and connected living."

In the kitchen, the Moen® Weymouth® high-arc kitchen faucet adds dramatic, traditional style to the space. An on-trend stainless steel apron-front sink offers the perfect combination of farmhouse charm, with a modern and durable twist. The kitchen also includes a complementary soap dispenser, bar/prep faucet, sink and Sip beverage faucet, as well as Moen's Traditional Pot Filler mounted above the cooktop for additional cooking convenience. 

Upstairs, the master suite is as smart as it is gorgeous, featuring sloping ceilings, calming blue hues and a control panel allowing homeowners to customize everything from mattress firmness to the height of window shades. The bathroom is upgraded with fixtures from the Moen Weymouth bathroom collection, including faucets with a beautiful cross-handle detail, shower and spa components and coordinating accessories. An ornate Weymouth tub filler accompanies the luxurious freestanding soaking tub, complete with a beautiful hand shower with stunning porcelain inlays.

Transforming the shower into a high-tech spa, the master shower features ioDIGITAL® technology, which gives users the ability to easily set and maintain water temperature and flow with electronic precision. With the touch of a button, the ioDIGITAL remote will turn on the shower from up to 30 feet away and recall the preferred temperature and flow rate -- meaning you can get your shower started without ever leaving the comfort of bed. Moen's Mosaic Flushmount Body Sprays complete the shower's spa-like feel and provide even more customization, as the adjustable spray faces deliver water exactly where it's wanted.

Completing the suite is an in-room wet bar with a Moen undermount bar/prep sink and traditional Sip beverage faucet. Using a remote control, homeowners can prompt the coffee maker to lift up and reveal a shelf with a martini shaker and cocktail utensils. This techy convenience allows homeowners to store the perfect pick-me-ups for morning or night.
