Induction cooking, which heats via electromagnetic field instead of through radiant heat, is all the rage because it’s speedy and allows you masterful control over simmering. And now smartphone-inspired touch-and-swipe controls make the connection between you and your cooktop element even more intuitive — just drag your finger around the arc to adjust the heat for each zone as you cook. Shown is a GE Monogram® induction cooktop.
While not common in bedrooms on a top floor due to load, noise and instability of subfloor, natural stone tile is a popular choice for ranch-style homes in the hot Southwest since it has a cooler feel under foot. And in climates that experience some seasonal chill, stone works great with radiant heating because it maintains and distributes the heat better than wood. Photo courtesy of Inalco
This kitchen, designer Amy Finley's own, is all about common sense. The kitchen is the gathering place for her five children and for weekly dinners with extended family. Things stay hot in this minimalist kitchen with custom La Cornue appliances, radiant-heated limestone floors, a stainless steel meat counter and hidden warming drawers. The ceiling centerpiece, commissioned metal artwork by an artist from Venice, Italy, was specifically designed to diffuse the bright San Diego sunlight from the skylight.
The sleek wood cabinets in this kitchen hide the refrigerator, freezer dishwasher and a pull-out pantry. Concrete floors are a nice contrast to the warm cabinets, and a radiant floor heating system ensures the floors are cool to the eyes but not the feet.
