In fact, when I need a cutting board for dinner prep, I tend to grab a not-as-pretty, but easy-to-clean board and keep the teak board out mostly for decoration.

"A pro fridge like a Sub-Zero is huge and it's really meant for people who need to store a lot of ingredients for constant cooking," says Sue Adams. "They do have better seals on the doors and compartments at different temps so different things won't spoil, and special gaskets so odors won't go from one compartment to another.". But if you're not a fervent cook, the big fridge is unnecessary, she says. "You can afford to let a lot of milk go sour for the difference in price between a Sub-Zero and a residential model," she says. If you do opt for a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Adams advises against the optional glass doors. "Do you really want people to see inside your refrigerator?" she asks. "And if all they'd be seeing is your takeout boxes, you may want to reconsider the purchase altogether."

If you do lots of stir-frying or heat large quantities of food, you'll want at least one high-heat element or burner, as mentioned above. Many ranges include a wok ring, which sits on top of the burner grate to hold a wok. If you simmer lots of sauces, you'll want a "simmer burner," which cooks at a low temp. Check with the manufacturer on these; "a simmer technically is 190 degrees," Franke says, and some low-heat burners are really warming burners because they maintain a 150-degree temperature, which is fine for keeping a dinner warm but not for simmering your gravy.

The extra surface area can be used for prep work, sinks, or burners, while the base can be decorative (think stone, brick or rock).

She used a custom-printed fabric from Galbraith and Paul for both the shade and its box-pleated topper, says contractor Duane Johns of Advanced Renovations.

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."

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.

Designers today are vying to create innovative kitchen drawer and cabinet pulls, and consumers looking for an affordable kitchen update are the beneficiaries. Adrienne Morea, for example, translated America's fascination with leather furnishings into Paradigm pulls in black leather, black crocodile leather and cocoa brown washable suede with polished chrome and brushed nickel accents.

You can either use one plant like in this kitchen by House of Jade Interiors or use several plants throughout your space. You could even grow fresh herbs and keep those out on the counter.
