|Hands-free Recycling Centre|
According to Monarch designer Kevin Samson, one of the hottest kitchen design trends for 2012 is an electronic device that allows homeowners to enjoy "hands-free" opening and closing of their recycling centre.
All it takes is a simple touch of the cupboard door to trigger the electronic opening system. Touch the door again and the door closes. If your hands are solied, a touch of the knee or slight hip check will activate the system. Messy hands no longer mean messy cupboards.
"I'm like most guys...I love gadgets and toys and I feel this one is a real winner," says Kevin. "It's practical, but it's also a great way to impress my family and friends — like having a magic show in the kitchen!"
