Huette Monin Kitchen Backsplashes, 2017-12-11 15:24:24. Creative backsplashes don't have to be made from found items, though—they can be much simpler, but just as colorful and visually appealing. Many homeowners looking to add a uniquely creative design to their kitchen have begun to feature "paper" backsplashes. Featuring interesting designs and bold colors on materials like heavy duty scrapbook paper, old newspaper pages, or even magazine image collages, these backsplashes provide plenty of visual punch at a fraction of the cost of ones constructed from tile, metal or stone. If you find this approach appealing, all you'll need to do is procure the paper, glue or paste it to the wall, then coat it with a finish that will protect the paper and allow you to easily wipe it clean.

If you need to cover lots of area, like an entire wall, you can add interest without emptying your bank account by opting for practical metal panels. Stainless steel sheets come in a variety of finishes, Spang says. "They are very practical durability-wise, but they are a little more challenging to keep clean."

Popular for kitchen countertops and floors, granite, travertine or even marble tile are often employed in backsplash design, providing an elegant and durable option and a high-end look. All of the kinds of natural stone tiles are available in a range of colors and textures, from slate-like matte finishes to rougher, pebbled designs. Color choices are nearly inexhaustible as well, and many granite retailers can find or even dye their products based on your needs if you don't see the shade you're looking for on site.

Sharp knives are a chef's most important tool (from what I hear!), so a chic block is a necessity if you want to add some glam to your countertop.

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."

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.

When one of the main attractions of a separate freezer is more abundant ice, you need to do your homework, says Justin. "Some units have crushed or filtered water ice, some do not. Whether that should influence your purchase just depends on how picky you are about your ice." If on further examination you discover that the increased ice is the primary reason you're buying an all freezer, it might be lots easier just to fit an undercounter ice maker into your remodel. Sub-Zero makes one model, and lesser known companies such as Avanti and Hoshizaki make others.

The steel content of the cookware can be tested by taking a small magnet to the store. But, Fisher Knott says, clients don't bat an eye at this limitation, either. "Today, cooking has become an important part of the social activities of the home, and good cookware is part of that. Often, buying new cookware is part of the kitchen remodel anyway. We explain that the cooktop and cookware are part of a complete cooking system, so they plan on that."

I tend to prefer to keep utensils in a drawer, however, for those with limited space (or those who like to keep their utensils handy), a good way of keeping things looking pulled together and sleek is to purchase uniform utensils that all have one style or color. This will go a long way in avoiding the "utensil mosh pit" that can result when you are leaving a bunch of mismatched pieces together on your countertop.
