JUICERS…COOKWARE/BAKEWARE…COFFEE/ESPRESSO MACHINES

In many homes, the kitchen is a showplace where shiny, expensive appliances remain in full view instead of tucked away in cupboards. We know how good it feels to have these trophies displayed all the time, even if your most frequent visitor is the pizza delivery guy. Of course, not everyone needs or even uses their commercial-quality stand mixers, blenders or juicers, but it’s nice to know you’ve got the juice when the urge to prepare something special strikes. Ditto for premium cookware or gadgets like $100 wine openers.

“In designing a new kitchen, before thinking about cabinets or commercial appliances [that you are likely unqualified to use], think about lighting. Great, comfortable, usable lighting is the most important, yet overlooked, part of kitchen design. If you can’t see, you can’t cook. If you can’t see well, you can’t cook well.”
