Whether your goal is to reduce the spread of germs in the bathroom or to keep things clean while you’re preparing food, touchless technology for the home is a convenient luxury that is becoming more and more available. We’re especially excited that this technology is not just available in super modern styles and finishes. You may have futuristic functionality, but you can still achieve a traditional look in your space.

Touchless Kitchen Faucets
Moen’s Brantford kitchen faucet is a traditional silhouette that boasts Moen’s MotionSense® technology. Just pass your hand over the arc of the faucet, and Viola!, you’re washing your hands or rinsing those veggies.
Boasting a more modern aesthetic, Moen’s Align High-Arc faucet also features the MotionSense® technology. Available in chrome or a spot resistance stainless finish.
Grohe’s Ladylux Cafe Touch faucet is not entirely touch free, but you merely have to bump the arc of the faucet with your wrist or elbow and the water will flow freely. So if your hands are covered in dirt from the garden or dough from your cookies, you don’t have to spread the mess.
