Huette Monin Kitchen Backsplashes, 2017-09-23 16:37:54. Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash, you'll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don't always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact, that design might be too overwhelming, especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area, many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen's layout, that may be the whole wall, half of it or only a small portion.

One of the benefits of a small kitchen is that the surface area you'll need to cover with your backsplash is likely not that large—so a self-install may be possible, particularly if you're handy and/or working with self-adhesive backsplash materials that don't require extensive cutting and configuring. If you're not thrilled by the idea of installing your own backsplash or if you lack home improvement chops, a professional installation may be in order. It'll be more expensive than a self-install by a large margin, but you'll be freeing up your time and giving yourself the knowledge that an expert is in charge of the installation.

Tape color and tile samples to the walls to see what they look like throughout the day as natural light changes, suggests Stephen Kahn, president of Anchor Bay Tile in Phoenix, Ariz. Choose one main color and a couple of accent colors to use throughout the kitchen, including the backsplash.

If you're just putting up with stainless steel when you'd prefer a pro-grade stove with some color, consider Lacanche's double-oven commercial stoves. "They have excellent features you wouldn't find in the typical American oven, like dual fuel and a warming oven for people who really want to cook," says Linda Applewhite, an interior designer in Sausalito, Calif. "Here on the West Coast, we're seeing a trend towards French stoves and one of the reasons is that they're professional-looking and also come in all these great enamel colors."

After a decade of constant struggle with an ancient Amana range (just like the ones Monty Hall used to give away in the 1970s on "Let's Make a Deal!"), the final blow came on Thanksgiving. I put the lovingly stuffed 20-lb. turkey in the oven and set it at 325 degrees, only to find, after hours of basting and checking meat thermometers and fiddling with the dial, that for some inexplicable reason the oven wouldn't work at any temperature lower than 350 degrees.

If you're going to the expense of including high-end grills, surfaces and appliances outside, don't neglect complementary features such as sinks or dishwashers, task lighting (if only for safety) and dimmers, ceiling fans and awnings to keep the sun and heat at bay. And don't forget to include comfortable seating.

"As the population ages and more older buyers 'don't do stairs,' it's becoming more appealing to replace the chest model in the basement with a model you can work into the design of your older kitchen. An undercounter model with 5 cubic feet of space is plenty for most people, or you might want to consider a freezer drawer."

And sometimes it probably feels like a big puzzle. Living with a tiny kitchen often means that you can’t even fit standard-sized appliances in your cook space. But the good news is, there are lots of options out there for more compact appliances designed especially for people like us.
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Appliances, 2017-12-02 08:12:10. How much do you really use your oven? Very few people are really going to use an oven to complete capacity, Franke says, so those extra cubic feet might not be that important. Some ovens have racks that divide so you can cook a standing rib roast and then put in a half rack for your biscuits or sweet potatoes.

Even though online restaurant supply companies have deep discounts on gas cooktops and ranges, you may be in for a disappointment if you hope to save on one for your home. "Ranges for restaurants have different specs and they aren't right for residential use — one could literally blow up your home," says Herschberger. The differing requirements run from commercial venting to bigger gas lines, says Weil. Even if your spacious kitchen design could accommodate the specs, your state's Health Department may ban the use of restaurant ranges in home settings. "And buying a range like that over the Internet will almost surely void the manufacturer's warranty," she says. Commercial outdoor grills are a different story. "We sell lots of them to homeowners and of course they don't need the venting," says Weil, "but before making such a large investment you should definitely check with your Health Department to find out what it allows."
