Eero Introduces New, More Powerful WiFi System

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Early last year, a savvy startup set out to solve a problem that plagued households across the country: home wireless networks with poor coverage. The average users expects WiFi in all areas of their home, and why wouldn’t they? We’ve all got a multitude of devices that require an internet connection: the laptop in the bedroom, the smart TV in the den, and the smartphone everywhere in between, from the front door to the bathroom. But that reliable coverage was hard to achieve. A typical wireless router might have stellar bandwidth at close range, but when you turn a corner, go upstairs, or close a couple of doors, your wireless signal may drop significantly.

Eero solved this problem by reinventing the way home wireless systems are propogated, using multiple points of network access instead of just a single router. The resulting mesh network blankets your entire home with full coverage, meaning that even in the nooks and crannies of your home, on a floor above or below your modem, you’ll have no problem tuning in an excellent wi-fi signal. We took a look at the Eero here:

Today, Eero released their second generation wireless system, improving upon the original by making it more powerful and even easier to use. Though outward appearance remains unchanged, the Eero wireless base stations have been upgraded with much-improved internals. A new antenna array and the addition of tri-band support give the new Eero twice the bandwidth and double the range of the original, letting your Eero network support more users while giving faster speeds with farther signal penetration.

How to Achieve the Look of a Counter-Depth Fridge Without Buying a New Unit

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

A popular look in modern kitchens is the counter-depth fridge, which lines up the front of your refrigerator with the edge of your cabinets and countertops, providing a clean, flush look.

The front of a counter-depth fridge lines up almost evenly with the face of your cabinets.

If you’re planning on doing a kitchen remodel and are limited on space or budget (counter-depth fridges often cost more than normal-depth versions), or are just looking to find a way to make your existing full depth refrigerator appear more flush with your existing cabinets and countertops, there is another option. A great way to achieve that look without investing in a more expensive and smaller shallow depth unit is to simply recess the back wall that your refrigerator sits against. (more…)

Grand Opening of the Abt Inspiration Studio

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Some two years after its conception, the Abt Inspiration Studio was officially revealed to the public last night. Part visual spectacle and part interactive experience, the Inspiration Studio was created to be the ultimate destination for anyone shopping for kitchen appliances.  The idea for the space came from the same place as most of Abt’s historically ambitious ideas: the mind of Bob Abt. He wanted to build a space unlike any appliance showroom ever seen, a space that would elevate the idea of being just a place to buy products, and would genuinely instill inspiration in its visitors.

Bob wanted to combine the best of what he knew—providing an unparalleled customer experience—with the best of what others knew. So he enlisted his friend and colleague, renowned kitchen designer Mick DeGiulio, and explained his vision for a flowing space that mixed high-end kitchen appliances with world-class design elements. Mick was given carte blanche, and the end result was the epic showroom that is the Abt Inspiration Studio. (more…)
