These higher-end materials will mean an increase in budget, but also a stunning and long-lasting stove backsplash.

Your local home improvement or tile specialty store is your friend here, and you can also browse countless backsplash material options online. You'll need to decide on the right style for the material as well—most backsplash materials are available in a wide range of colors, textures and patterns. For a small kitchen design, consider a backsplash that adds personality, color and visual interest without overwhelming the small space or making it feel exceedingly cramped.
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Backsplashes, 2017-12-11 15:26:39. When you've decided on the style of the stove backsplash and sourced the materials needed, it's time to turn your attention to installation. You've got two options here: the DIY route, or professional installation. Depending on the complexity of the job and the difficulty of working with your chosen backsplash material (some tile materials are easier to configure, cut and secure to the wall than others, for example), as well as your own level of DIY expertise, you may choose to hire a contractor to install your backsplash or, if you're confident in your abilities, save some money by installing it yourself.

If you've been bitten by the all freezer bug, take the benefits and shortfalls into consideration before choosing one for a remodel, says Justin Breckle, branch manager for Roth Concept Center in St. Louis. His company has lavish showrooms in six American cities that display the latest appliances in complete kitchens. Pick a size based on what your space will allow and how often you use the freezer. While units like the 36-inch Sub-Zero All Freezer are very attractive, "you should first consider how much food you store," he says. "If you're the type who goes to the store every couple of days for the freshest stuff or eats mostly organic produce, you probably don't need a separate freezer at all. If, on the other hand, you have lots of kids or you're always on the go and eat lots of frozen dinners, that large freezer might make sense."

Ken Dempsey has one in his own kitchen and says, "If you have a schedule-crazy household like me, once you have one, you'd never want to live without it again. It keeps food at the ideal temperature, without drying it out and without cooking it more."

"The induction cooktop, while not yet a part of most households, is becoming increasingly accepted as a useful, energy-efficient method of preparing food," according to a fact sheet produced by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Michigan Technological University. The cooktops contain coils made of a magnetic material. When current passes through the coil, it produces a magnetic field that transfers to the pan above it. The pan and its contents heat up but neither the cooktop nor the air above it becomes hot. When the pan is removed, the energy transfer stops.

Online restaurant supply houses can offer such great discounts because they have bulk buying power — after all, they're designed to serve restaurants. That usually means, though, that any customer will have to buy an entire case of certain smaller or low-margin items or meet a minimum dollar amount. In general, the bigger the supply house, the more likely the "by the case" requirement. "Keep in mind that most of the bigger restaurant suppliers are getting great discounts because they're working with lots of smaller manufacturers, and it's not cost-effective for them to break a case [into smaller amounts] — plus it encourages damage," says Herschberger.

If you're always scrambling to get dinner ready fast, you might want a combination thermal/convection oven, which cooks with a fan that circulates hot air so items cook more quickly and brown more easily. Convection ovens have improved dramatically in the last few years, says, Sharon Franke, director of food appliances for Good Housekeeping magazine and the Good Housekeeping Institute, which evaluates new ranges on a regular basis.

The first is pricing, which tends to run approximately 20 percent higher than more conventional stoves, she estimates. But she has found that for most clients, especially in the mid- to upper-end kitchens, that incremental addition isn’t a deal-breaker. "Most clients are looking to upgrade their kitchens when they remodel, and they are looking for better performance rather than the cheapest price. I've never found induction cooktops to be a hard sell when they see what they provide."

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."
