If you don’t have a ventilation fan above your cooktop that vents to the attic or outside, you’ll want a range hood with ventilation fan built in. Why? Even if you don’t find some cooking odors objectionable, vaporized grease can dull beautiful new kitchen surfaces, and moisture can compromise the efficiency of home insulation. The solution is an updraft range hood that funnels cooking grease and smoke into one area so that the fan can draw it through a duct to the outside.
Why should you swap out your stainless or color refrigerator for one with glass panel doors? Durability. Compared to metals like stainless steel, glass door refrigerators don’t dent or scratch as easily, especially if you use a soft towel or gentle glass cleaners. Their sheen makes them look brand new for years to come. Glass door refrigerators come in a variety of glass panel styles ranging from high-gloss colored glass to frosted glass to stainless steel doors with a clear glass window insert.
Another way to use the often-neglected third dimension is to install shelving and cubbyholes about 50cm above all work surfaces. This can make a kitchen feel more cramped, though, so it’s best to visualize the effect first. If there’s a square foot of wall that’s neither useful nor beautiful, ask yourself why.
