North Olmsted, Ohio... The new Moen® Varese™ collection offers homeowners a classic and elegant styling choice for the kitchen or bathroom. Available at Menards, this suite with fluid curves and rich details, offers not only eye-catching style, but a variety of thoughtfully designed performance capabilities.

"We're constantly monitoring the wants and needs of homeowners," said Andrea Conroy, director of retail marketing, Moen. "We know that in addition to quality and style, they're searching for water-saving benefits, unique finishes and added functionality. Varese encompasses all of these needs."

In the Bath
The Varese bathroom collection features a two-handle centerset bathroom faucet ($79.99-99.99)* with a consumer-preferred, high-arc spout and lever handles. For green-minded homeowners, each Varese bathroom faucet has been certified to meet WaterSense® criteria, featuring a flow-optimized aerator that allows water to flow at 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm), versus traditional aerators that flow at 2.2 gpm. This provides consumers the sensational water experience to which they are accustomed, while reducing water usage by up to 32 percent.

To fully coordinate in the bath, a single-handle tub/shower combination ($129.99-159.99)* is available with an eight-inch rainshower for an invigorating, full-body spray.

The Varese collection is available in Chrome and Moen's exclusive Spot Resist™ Brushed Nickel finish. Spot Resist does just what it says -- resists fingerprints and water spots. The innovative finish maintains the brilliance of faucets or showerheads.

In the Kitchen
In the kitchen, the Varese pullout kitchen faucet offers beautiful, transitional styling, a consumer-preferred, high-arc pullout spout and a multi-function spray wand. The ergonomically designed pullout wand offers three functions: powerful spray, aerated stream and pause. Moen's pause button allows users to interrupt the water flow while moving the spray outside of the sink, making it ideal for watering plants and filling large pots.

The Varese kitchen faucet also includes Moen's Quick Connect installation system which connects the faucet and supply lines together with a telltale "click" for a quick, easy and secure connection. It's available in Spot Resist Stainless ($198)* and includes a matching soap dispenser.
