Lucette Gallois Kitchen Decorating, July 21st , 2017. A smart kitchen design layout can make any gourmet feel right at home cooking in cramped quarters. Case in point: the galley layout, which shapes the kitchen into a narrow aisle. By situating the cabinetry and appliances against opposite walls, full-height cabinets are a good option for taking full advantage of your wall real estate.
Stefania Morice Kitchen Decorating, July 15th , 2017. The accessories you choose to feature in your kitchen may be the first elements guests notice. Many homeowners look to accessories—along with other thematic elements like color schemes and patterns—as an opportunity to express their design aesthetic and add visual interest and a distinct personality to their kitchen design style.

Pansy Godefroy Kitchen Decorating, July 20th , 2017. One of the more striking benefits of a kitchen peninsula is its utility. Just like a kitchen island, a peninsula has many potential uses. It can be configured to add considerable extra storage via a system of cabinets, drawers and racks that can be used to keep cookware and other accessories organized. Peninsula countertops can add a great deal of surface area to your kitchen design, and they can be used for food preparation and dining. Peninsula countertops can also do double duty in terms of storage and decoration, providing a convenient location for containers and other storage elements while allowing you to keep your favorites on prominent display.

Ivonne Caillauda Sinks and Faucets, August 03rd , 2017. Kitchen sinks are typically made from stainless steel, enamel-coated cast iron, solid surfaces and composites. For clients who choose solid surface counters like granite or engineered stone, Isley recommends a stainless steel sink because of its undermount capability. Also if homeowners tend to be hard on sinks (Isley asks clients if they‘re prone to throwing things into their sink), stainless is often the best choice. When shopping for a sink, keep in mind that lower-gauge stainless steel makes for a better quality sink. Some people find stainless steel sinks noisy, but that‘s a problem that can be addressed by choosing a design featuring sound-absorption technology.

Hanrietta Meyer Sinks and Faucets, July 25th , 2017. Soapstone has been used to make sinks for hundreds of years. It‘s called soapstone because it feels soft to the touch, but don‘t let that fool you. It‘s the densest of the stones used for sinks; it won‘t stain or etch, and it‘s heat-resistant. It does require oiling to maintain an even, dark charcoal color, but that‘s the only thing you have to worry about.
