As the heart of the home, the kitchen is an important and hard-working room. Here are some of our favorite elements which can weave together for a great space.

Layout – Inspiring Kitchen Design

Kitchen layout can make a big difference in how efficient the space is and how well it functions day-to-day as well as how it functions when entertaining with family and friends. 

One element that can work well is placing the kitchen sink underneath a window and a great view is a bonus. Wrapping the sink wall with tile is also a great look. Keep the island, sink free, and it can be helpful if you like casual dinners at the island. It also allows more space to be used as a buffet.

Cabinet Doors For A Clean Design

Do you ever remember the first time you saw a cabinet door face for a refrigerator or freezer?  This is a trend which has moved to classic design for an upscale look.

Not All Range Hoods Are Equal

Tile is a great place to express personality in a home but the range hood is another spot for creativity.  From ArcusStone and plaster finishes to shiplap, stone, wood or metal, the range area has because the focal point of a kitchen.

Little Features Add Up

There are little elements which help weave together an amazing kitchen.  Kohler has a touch faucet so you don’t have to engage the knob, just touch and go.


If you are a busy cook, you’ll love having a floor vacuum. Sweep crumbs into the vent for a quick clean up! Here’s more. 

We’re all used to the garage disposal switch being to the right of the sink.  How about putting it on the floor where you can activate it hands free with your foot?

Spice racks continue to get smarter but ultimately, pull out shelves flanking the range remain a favorite for us.
