Oakville, Ontario... A recent survey from the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) uncovered that for the first time, transitional design is the most popular for kitchens and bathrooms. To provide another faucet option to meet the needs of consumers, the Etch™ kitchen suite from Moen adds timeless, comfortable elegance to any transitionally designed kitchen.

"With the popularity of transitional styling rising, we knew it was important to create a full kitchen suite that adds just the right amount of glamour to the premium kitchen," said Garry Scott, vice president, wholesale marketing and brand development, Moen Canada. "Also, since pulldown faucets remain the fastest growing platform, we wanted to offer not only the style option that consumers are looking for, but also the functionality."

The Etch faucets include unique styling; the handle, base and spout are adorned with facets that create a high-end look. The clean lines and soft shapes are featured in kitchen and bar/prep faucets, allowing the transitional style to be carried throughout today's larger, premium kitchen -- adding the perfect amount of glamour to both the main sink and bar/prep areas.

Thoughtfully designed details keep the modern conveniences of the Etch faucets hidden: one of the most distinctive elements of the kitchen faucet is the innovative, integrated pulldown wand which neatly docks inside the spout. The two-function wand still provides all of the functionality and ease-of-use of a traditional pulldown wand (with the choice of a steady, aerated stream for everyday cleaning, or a spray for rinsing), yet its enclosed design enables it to have a more streamlined appearance.

Available in both single-handle pulldown kitchen and bar/prep pulldown models, Etch faucets also feature Moen's innovative Reflex® system, which offers self-retraction of the wand, as well as an exceptional range of motion, generous reach and secure docking retraction. Thanks to a resistance-free hose and optimized weight that provides the perfect force, Etch's hose return is fast and effortless.

Another thoughtfully designed element in the Etch collection is the optimized handle design, which features maximum handle-to-backsplash clearance, even when the faucet is installed near the backsplash, ensuring a full range of temperature control.

The Etch kitchen suite is offered in two finishes: Chrome, and Spot Resist™ Stainless, which resists fingerprints and water spots to help maintain a brilliant finish. Etch faucets also feature the Moen limited lifetime warranty* to ensure superior quality.
