First we had the small under-counter wine refrigerators that were all the rage. Since then, wine storage as become more sophisticated — and much more attractive. Rather than just an appliance hidden under the counter, wine lovers can now display their favorite vintages in an attractive system that becomes an integral part of the design.
Here, BlueStar has created a spectacularly eye-catching design that is meant to evoke the Pacific Northwest with its red oven units and rich green cabinetry. Combined with chic copper-colored hardware and a dramatic, riveted hood, the colorful combination is classy and definitely not cheesy. It is a kitchen design idea that is warm and homey — perfect for a fun family space.
Amateur chefs can also create a cooktop that has all their favorite cooking surfaces and appliances. A customizable countertop cooking area from Wolf has different units that can be built in. Whether you want a grill, deep fryer, gas burner or teppanyaki surface, they can be mixed and match in an island or countertop. It makes producing great meals very easy when specialty appliances are at your fingertips.
Although, like always, there are both pros and cons to consider, we have a feeling that the pros outnumber the cons in this case. We’ll start by mentioning just how practical freestanding kitchen cabinets are. A lot of them are finished on all sides which means you can basically move them around and create different configurations whenever you want to. You might however be limited by the length of the countertop.
