What’s Trending?

DESIGN:
Use cushier seating, make it easy to clean, put some thought into clutter-reducing design, add mood-inducing lighting, art and music.  Whether for the professional or the kids, a dedicated work zone is a priority, meaning multi-functioning extra-large kitchen islands are a must-have. Double sinks and large walk-in pantries remain popular.

MAKE A STATEMENT:
Ranges offered in a rainbow of colors and range hoods in luxe copper, ceiling-mounted chimney styles, or hoods designed to be part of the architecture are a way to add pizzazz.  For faucets, matte and brushed finishes in stainless steel or black lead the trend.

APPLIANCE CHECKLIST:
Ovens offering multiple cooking modalities like convection and steam in a single unit are all the rage.  Gas and induction cooktops are nearly equal in popularity.  Refrigeration columns provide food storage flexibility and minimize waste. A fingerprint resistant finish, three adjustable racks, large capacity, quiet operation and dishes that come out clean the first time are the qualifiers of a great dishwasher.

Forza, shown in Radicale Red, offers the world’s first 48” range with single-cavity oven
with 7.8 cubic feet in the range cavity and over 40-inches of clearance.
