Electric smoothtop ranges need to be cleaned carefully after every use or you can get a residue buildup on top, Franke says. Smoothtops also require a special cleaner. If you're not the constantly cleaning type you may want to consider electric coils, which are inexpensive and easy to replace, or a gas cooktop with sealed burners so spills can't leak down underneath.

"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."

Hambright's approach works just as well for those who don't own a single pro-quality appliance and have little prospect of getting one, whether the reason is budget, an immutable kitchen design or impending move. There are plenty of smaller gadgets and cookware pieces that will help you cook like a pro without breaking the bank or remodeling the kitchen, and they'll move with you when you go.

But in this two-ended knife, the parallel blades on one end allow me to slice on both sides of the membrane at once. Then the other end, which is serrated, deftly cuts around the outside edge of the grapefruit. (Don't reverse the process, though, because it's not as effective.) When the Texas ruby reds come in, I'm a happy slurper.

But before investing in any of these designs for your own kitchen, remember that a coordinated kitchen look is stylish beyond compare, says Morea: "The single most important element to consider is what you decided to do with your plumbing fixtures. If they're pewter, stainless or brushed nickel, your new pulls should have the same finish. You might also want to consider colors that coordinate or complement your tile and floor or the color or finish on your appliances, particularly if you're using the trendy stainless fridges and dishwashers."

They say, 'I like grapes' or 'I love antique cars,' and they'll always have a place," says Morea. "That kind of whimsy works really well at a second home or a vacation home. I have one client in Florida, for example, who used 125 hardware pieces in one beach house kitchen, all starfish, and it looked great. Pulls shaped like twigs and leaves work in a mountain retreat kitchen." In an ordinary kitchen, pulls in fun shapes and colors strike a nice note when used sparingly. "For a personal touch I might use a few on a wine drawer or the doors of a wet bar, or maybe one or two on overhead cabinets that aren't real close to the main cabinets."

Designer Robin Baron gave this elegant country kitchen the perfect finishing touch with an ornate scalloped valance above the sink. “I always say ‘great design is in the details’ and this beautiful valance is a perfect example,” says Baron. “I used the detail of iron hooks to create the dramatic pleating in lieu of a traditional pole and embellished the classic linen floral fabric with tassel trim, and matching tape, giving weight and importance to this country-inspired valance.”
