Sources in the know tell us that kitchen trends this year are all about exotic wood countertops and cabinet veneers. Brooks Custom, based out of New York, offers a variety of exotic and domestic woods, including zebrawood, African mahogany, lyptus, and teak.

Don't be fooled by Bosch's newest 800 series dishwashers—at 38 to 42 dBA, they're simply so quiet that you won't even realize they're on. With Energy Star compliance, a half-load option for small loads, built-in water softener, and a full-color clear text display, these dishwashers are so convenient, you just might look forward to cleaning up after dinner.



Craftsmanship is the hallmark of GE's Monogram Collection, which includes built-in refrigerators designed for those who want serious storage with a customized look. Humidity-controlled vegetable compartments and sealed snack pans maintain freshness, while upfront electronic controls with a digital readout facilitate precise temperature settings for maximum efficiency.



Although walk-in pantries conjure up idyllic notions of home canning and preserves, today's pantry is more likely to have such modern conveniences as a microwave or wine refrigerator nestled among the canned goods. In planning a pantry, focus on simplicity, organization, and location to ensure that items are efficiently stowed away and accessible.


To complement midlevel upgrades and improved countertops, many homeowners are opting for the stylish and rustic apron-front sink. Kohler's newest apron-front sinks, available in enameled cast iron (in various colors and textures) or stainless steel (in single or double bowls), are a surefire way to lend farmhouse charm to any kitchen.
