This beautiful, blue tile backsplash adds charm and color to this small, modern, country kitchen. Due to the limited space, designers kept the cabinets and walls a light, neutral color, but added warmth through the colorful backsplash, tying the whole space together.
The style of this friendly kitchen is as delicious as the gourmet meals it's thoroughly prepared to handle. The 6-burner Wolf range also has double ovens and a griddle and there's an industrial-strength Traulsen refrigerator and freezer.
A pro-style fuel range with griddle and convection oven offers the precision of gas with the consistent heat of electric. Six different convection modes including bake, broil and roast make it easy to whip up gourmet-quality meals at home.
This itty-bitty appliance has been compared to an EasyBake oven, but it makes real coffee, toast and even eggs on its 6” griddle. So when you can’t get away from your desk for a meal break, you can still whip up actual food in your room. Take that, Cup o’ Noodles.
The 6-burner, commercial-style cooktop is the ideal spot to cook up a hearty breakfast — there's even a griddle for assembly-line flapjacks. Double ovens offer ample space to prepare meals for a crowd, and Shaker-style cabinetry in a black finish provides a quiet backdrop for the room's more dramatic fixtures.
Break out the griddle on a lazy weekend morning and make a triple batch of homemade, healthy waffles. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers in a large zip-top plastic bag, then pop in the toaster for a speedy breakfast during the hectic weekday morning rush. Top with fresh berries and a dollop of Greek yogurt. Get the recipe >>
Preparing food outside is half the fun of having a yard. When you're designing your outdoor kitchen, think big: "Everything in the outdoor kitchen is big, from beverage centers to warming doors, through-the-counter trash chutes, griddles for pancakes for brunch, wok plates, smokers, rotisseries," says landscape artist Scott Cohen of The Green Scene in Canoga Park, Calif. Also, "make sure that the host doesn't have his back to the guests when he's cooking," he says.
