It‵s okay to splurge on a luxury item or two in the kitchen. "People want toys in their kitchens—appliances that they may not necessarily need but would like to have," explains Nikki Trivisonno, a certified designer with Cleveland-based Somrak Kitchens.
There are, however, some appliances that make the countertop cut: namely, the coffee maker. Find common ground by establishing a coffee station on your kitchen counter. Enhance it with streamlined accessories, like a floating shelf below the cabinetry to stack coffee cups and a tray filled with spoons and sweeteners. For these appliances that we can't live without being in plain sight, make sure that they mimic the design style of your space. If you have a modern aesthetic, then look for appliances with sleek, shiny finishes to complement a contemporary decor. Vintage-style preferences are best matched with nostalgic appliances such as a standout Smeg refrigerator.
Beverage Centers. Unlike a wine fridge, a beverage center is a more family-friendly appliance, chilling cans and bottles of juice, soda, water and beer to desired drinking temps. "Homeowners are installing these appliances as close to the living area as possible so the drinks are convenient," Trivisonno says. Some, she adds, are installing them in the family room for the ultimate convenience.
