You can use paint to make a brown stove white or you can really have fun and inject some life into the most important items in your kitchen. If the rest of your kitchen is neutral, a red or brightly colored fridge will really pop. Just remember that painting appliances can be a long, tedious process. Keep that in mind when selecting colors for your appliances and choose ones that you′ll be happy with for a while.
Induction Cooktops. An induction cooker uses electricity to heat cooking vessels that are ferrous (made of iron or iron-based), as opposed to generating heat in the burner itself. The result is a process that is fast, precise and energy efficient, Trivisonno says. But because many homeowners are not yet fully comfortable with the technology, she notes, they are opting to experiment with smaller built-in models or countertop versions.
As homeowners continue to spend more and more time in their kitchens, they are more likely to indulge in one or more specialty appliances. "It‵s a lot like electronics," she adds. "Once you see something in a friend´s home, you have to have one."
Another option for making more room in your small kitchen is to downsize your appliances — literally. European appliances are typically much smaller than American models, although they work just as well. Gourmets may cringe initially, but an under-counter refrigerator drawer is a space-saving alternative to the upright behemoths we're most familiar with. A refrigerator/freezer combo drawer installed within the kitchen cabinetry is a smart design solution and ideal for cramped galley-style layouts.
