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.

For some kitchens, especially smaller ones, a few tiles extending up from the countertops and ringing the room can be plenty; anything more extensive might run the risk of overwhelming the space. For larger kitchens, countertop-to-ceiling backsplashes aren't entirely uncommon, as grander executions like this can optimize the use of available space and create a dramatic effect or build on an existing theme.

Stainless steel appliances are quite popular, offering both a sleek appearance, great durability and a surface that wipes clean easily. The same is true of stainless steel stove backsplashes, for which the low-maintenance factor is especially important.

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.

If you're ready to up your at-home coffee game, you might want to consider a Nespresso. This pod-based espresso/cappuccino maker is easy to use, makes delicious coffee, and looks pretty snazzy sitting out on your counter. If there's anything that can break a daily Starbucks habit, this might be it.

While many retailers advertise a "professional" line of electric ranges, they just don't put out enough BTUs for flashing fish or searing meats. "You can't have a pro kitchen with an electric cooktop," she says.

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.

So the turkey roasted, then cooled, then roasted, then cooled, and I spent several sleepless nights wondering if I'd poisoned my nearest and dearest with inadequately cooked poultry. I finally saved my dollars and bought a spanking new smoothtop electric range. It's amazingly easy to clean, the electric elements do a great job on everything from high-temperature searing to low-temperature simmering and the oven is large enough to accommodate an entire holiday feast (and cook it at the right temperature!).

"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."
