Most kitchens have dish soap and hand soap at the sink, so you might as well keep them in pretty bottles. In this black-and-white kitchen by designer Christopher Grubb, the soap is showcased in two pretty, glass bottles and on a metal tray. If you don’t have glass pump bottles, you can also simply choose a soap that comes in pretty bottles.
Built-in grills, whether custom-designed or pre-assembled, are a great way to make the most of your outdoor kitchen space. The extra surface area can be used for prep work, sinks, or burners, while the base can be decorative (think stone, brick or rock).
Gas ranges with their high BTUs are the most sought-after appliances for avid home chefs, but if one's out of reach you might want to consider a single gas Bunsen burner with gas propane on the side, says Sue Adams, an interior designer with a flair for kitchens from Andover, Mass. "It's not a fine design element, but it can provide the high heat you want if you're a serious cook, particularly in an outdoor kitchen," she says. If you've got a source of gas heat, even from a residential-style range, you can cook much more effectively if you invest in really good pots or pans, or even just one, says Eric Tanaka, executive chef for the posh Tom Douglas Restaurant Group in Seattle. "The thinner stainless steel or copper pans have hot spots, where a heavy enamel pot like an All-Clad spreads the heat evenly."
Larger pulls are "in" these days, too, particularly among urban kitchen owners who follow the latest trends. "Those customers are gravitating towards larger drawers and horizontal cabinets and so we're designing oversize pulls that look good in proportion," says Atlas Homewares' Morea. "One of my favorites is the more modern matte black pulls that give that Asian feel and make a simple, stylish statement."
Fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color. This custom arched shade can raise and lower to control sunlight and privacy. “Whether up or down, the shade keeps the kitchen feeling sunny with splashes of yellow from this Thom Filicia fabric, Prospect in Shadow,” says the manufacturer. Continue the look by using fabric in places like lampshades (see the shades on the wall sconces), barstools, chairs and even Fido's bed.
Fruit in a beautiful dish always looks great on a kitchen counter or on an island. The marble backsplash in this kitchen by Kapito Muller Interiors is the perfect backdrop to show off the bright yellow of the lemons. You could create a similar look with oranges or limes.
To create a tailored look in a simple, monochromatic kitchen, designer Teri Thomas chose a valance and Roman shade in the same fabric. She used a custom-printed fabric from Galbraith and Paul for both the shade and its box-pleated topper, says contractor Duane Johns of Advanced Renovations.
