No luxury feature is spared in this incredible custom kitchen, right down to drawer and cabinet compartments lined with leather. Spot the carved lion's head above the custom mural, which depicts the homeowner's own house among vineyards. Rich oak cabinetry built in France covers side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerators, four freezer drawers, and two dishwashers beside the apron sink. Flanking the mural are two pilasters where the homeowner hangs her kitchen towels and hides her dish soap. In the island is a second sink, a Kohler Pro Cook, which doubles as a pasta cooker. For the grand-kids, a flat-screen TV pulls down from above the cabinets.
Keep your favorite coffee mugs, tea towels and cooking utensils handy with a kitchen peg rack. Switch up the display as often as you’d like to reflect the season, holiday — or your current design obsession.
One spot in the house that's often neglected when decorating for the holidays is the kitchen. Why not add just a few Christmas touches to make it look and feel more welcoming? Hang the same wreaths used in other rooms on the kitchen windows to keep the look cohesive. Add red dish towels, red napkins and stock your cookie jars with treats for guests to take the festive feel a step further.
Store cookbooks, dishes, and coffee pots in this amazing built-in kitchen cabinet from HGTV Smart Home 2014 — and that's only the beginning! The paper-towel drawer holds three rolls, one on display and two tucked away, making changing out the empty roll easy and convenient.

Storage Dilemma: Bulky extra rolls of paper towels are taking up premium cabinet space.

The crisp white-and-gray decor of this galley kitchen allows lots of room for bright pops of color in the accessories, like the yellow tea kettle and turquoise dish towel. The gray tile backsplash is both efficient and sophisticated.
Mix equal parts unpasteurized ACV and water in a clean spray bottle. Use this mixture to cut through grease, clean up grime and wipe out bacteria. The smell disappears as the vinegar evaporates. This cleaner is ideal for stove tops, counters, sinks and laundry room surfaces. It’s great for cleaning up metal tea kettles and the plastic touch pad on microwave and stove control panels. It also makes cleaning the inside of a microwave super easy. Spritz it inside the microwave on all surfaces, heat for 25 seconds, and wipe with a paper towel.
"Fresh flowers," Joanna Gaines, co-host of HGTV's Fixer Upper says, make a huge impact for a tiny price. Other budget updates: Throw pillows in the living room and bright dishes or tea towels in the kitchen.
The geometric shapes layered into this sophisticated kitchen become a work of art in and of themselves. A metal floating shelf crosses over the white rectangular tiles, offset by striking pitchers, a glass bottle and a pretty, graphic hand towel.
