Now is the time to start thinking about wish list items you want in your home. With the fall season and holidays just around the corner, a moment for gathering with friends and family, it’s time to show off your space. We have the scoop on the hot ticket items to add style, function, and most importantly, value to your home, sweet home.
Hit the bathroom if you are looking for the ultimate in self-care and something to truly wow your guests. When it comes to home improvement, it's the place to direct your energy. One of the most impactful things you can do in there, which is also remarkably easy to do on your own and without a plumber, is to replace your toilet seat. You may have seen bidets in the finest hotels or spas, but they have become a giant home improvement trend for homeowners and renters, and the TOTO Washlet S7A Bidet Seat is top of the line all the way. It takes about 30 minutes to install. And it works. It offers a fabulous, shall we say, “personal cleansing system” on your toilet that cleans you up without needing toilet paper.
Before you even sit down, the lid automatically opens to a comfy heated seat. And when done, it cleanses you with warm, aerated water. You can personalize that experience with a remote control to change the water temperature, pressure, and even the wand position. After, it gently dries you with warm air…talk about pampering. It’s also eco-friendly because less toilet paper is being used. Wet wipes are bad for flushing, so there is no need to worry about those anymore. The Washlet even deodorizes the toilet and helps clean the bowl, making it fresh and clean for the next person. It has an automatic night glow. You will not have to fumble turning on lights in the middle of the night.
TOTO has a full line of Washlet bidet seats and bidet toilets – like the Nexus Washlet + S7A One-Piece Toilet, which features the combination of a Washlet bidet seat and high-performance TOTO toilet with a seamless installation and no visible connections, water, or electrical. TOTO offers a complete line of Washlet bidet seats and toilets to fit all budgets and needs. Check out their full line at totousa.com.
Now, let’s talk about a must-have for your kitchen. The Midea 11QT Two-Zone Air Fryer Oven is what you need to get a meal (make it two, actually) on the table faster by letting you prepare two fully independent meals, or a meal and a side dish, at the same time, one in the air fryer and the other in the oven cavity at the same time. You can do ten different things, including air fry, grill, bake, roast, toast, broil, reheat, you name it.
You can control both via the Midea smartphone app to align the cooking times for both so that all the food is finished at precisely the same time. It’s also a space saver with a sleek design that takes up a fraction of counter space. With more than 50 programmed recipe ideas, the app makes mealtime easier.
