While many people like to blend refrigerators and dishwashers into the cabinetry with matching fronts, the latest trend is to keep ranges visible. However, if you do want to de-emphasize your oven, the easiest way is with an under-counter model. You may install a cooktop directly above the oven or locate it elsewhere in the kitchen.
If you’re looking for a way to freshen up your kitchen, keep an eye out for the latest kitchen trend: glass door refrigerators. They’re hot in Europe, which means the trend should be landing stateside shortly. Brands like Balay, GE, SubZero and Fisher & Paykel all have a version of a glass panel refrigerator available.
Filters capture additional grease and odors. Look for range hoods that come in copper, stainless steel, and other good-looking, easy-care materials, or customize a standard hood with ceramic tile to create a major focal point, furthering your decorating scheme. As an alternative, down-draft ventilation, usually part of a cooktop or grill, also employs a fan and duct arrangement. Units that rise above cooktop level provide the most effective venting.
Now, because of the DIY push, peoples' confidence in their ability to repair just about anything in their homes, including their refrigerator, is high, and that's a good thing. The problem is that perhaps this confidence might be a bit too high.
