We’re spending the next hour in the bathroom, and we’re hoping you’ll join us. Mark & Theresa are talking everything from the best toilet flush to 3D printed faucets to touch-free faucets and universal design from the American Standard pavilion at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Vegas.

Yes, universal design is trendy, but it also makes sense to create a bathroom space that works for all ages and for diverse abilities. There are details like toilet height and faucet maneuverability that can make it easier for everyone to live a bit more independently.

Stephen Fanuka, HGTV’s Million Dollar Contractor takes our minds on the journey working with and creating spaces for his fabulous clientele, including Tina Fey. But more than just living the life of the famous contractor, Stephen also shares his support of AlzDesign, and Theresa’s mission of creating a Design Prescription for Alzheimer’s.

And then there’s the fun of style and technology. The innovators are sharing how they created the 3D metal printed faucets and where you can buy the limited edition line. But, we’re also delighted to talk with Professor Toilet. Yes, he’s a real guy who knows a lot about toilets.
