Chip Wade shows you cool stuff from the 2016 International Builders' Show.

Heated Floors Made Easy

The top of the line tile backer system just got better for heated floors with the addition of the Schulter Ditra Heat-E-RT thermal blocking backer. This update keeps all the heat energy going into your cold toes, instead of sinking into the slab.

Panoramic Golf Simulator

If a golf simulator wasn’t luxury enough, About Golf now offers a full panoramic screen option providing an even more realistic experience, not to mention a great screen for movies.

Rolling Barn Slider

The hot trend of barn door sliders has now made its way to the bathroom, and all the way to the shower. New hardware offerings (this one if from Fleurco) are now available to attach to your frameless glass panels for a very striking visual effect and smooth sliding action.

Glideware Storage

The infamous corner cabinet is no longer the place for items that fall off the lazy Susan. This new not-so-lazy-Susan from Glideware has modular hooks for perfectly organizing all of your big, bulky cookware.

Real Butcher-Block

Solid-wood butcher-block tables are becoming more available with the recent demand.  This behemoth from Boos Block weighs in at over 800 pounds, but you could say it’s worth the “weight” because of the quality craftsmanship. 

Cordless Tool Charging

Never worry if your 18V tools have a fresh battery when it’s time to get work done.  With Bosch’s new lithium ion cordless charger, just set your drill and battery on the pad for storage and let it keep your battery fully charged.

Dual-Opening Windows

Multifunction can now be found in windows! NanaWall’s new dual operation windows convert from top-out venting to swing out like a casement window with a smooth turn of the handle.

Delaney Hardware

Contemporary door hardware offerings are the strong leader this year. With solid brass construction, these sleek styles are being incorporated in both modern and transitional styles.

Spax Fasteners

Innovation can even be found in fasteners. Spax screws make your projects so much easier. The screws eliminate the need for predrilling and the addition of special coatings keep them from ever rusting.
