More and more homeowners are looking for the "Resort Feel" at home

We all enjoy the resort lifestyle and wish we could take it home. It now appears that many Americans are doing just that.

Last year, U.S. homeowners spent $481 billion on home improvement projects, according to the Joint Housing Centers of Harvard University. Many of these improvements – kitchen remodels and outdoor living spaces – were made to increase the livability and functionality of the home. According to the National Association of Realtors, after upgrading their homes, 69% of owners experienced greater enjoyment from time spent in their home, and 84% wanted to spend more time at home.

An undercounter ice machine can be one of those unexpected luxuries that turns a home or outdoor patio into an enjoyable destination. From entertaining family & friends to elevating everyday events, an ice machine adds to the experience.

Scotsman Cuber ice is crystal-clear because it’s practically free from tap water minerals that get trapped and frozen in other forms of ice. fridge vs gourmet cubeWhen ordinary ice melts, minerals are released and can affect the flavor of the beverage.
