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.
The traditional range or stove, a single unit with cooktop above and oven below, is an affordable, space-conserving solution still chosen by most homeowners. But it’s just one of the cooking options offered today. Some serious home cooks choose commercial-style stoves with six or eight burners instead of four, basting and grilling functions, and built-in warming ovens.
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.
DIY refrigerator repair may not be such a pipe dream. The key is understanding that sometimes a professional may be warranted, and contacting an expert does not make you poor - it makes you realistic.
