Some of my favorite kitchen ideas can easily be incorporated into a dated kitchen or a kitchen that was intentionally designed to appear old such as mine.

 

Kitchen cabinet and drawer Lighting functions like the fridge in some modern screen-shot-2016-11-13-at-6-35-30-pmcabinets.

Many European kitchen cabinet lines combine tempered glass and LED technology to produce extremely bright light inside drawers and cupboards when you open a drawer or cabinet.  LED lighting remains cool because it  produces light rather than heat and uses very little electricity.

Toe kick vacuums  also called baseboard vacuums may be the most genius kitchen invention ever.  If you have a central vacuum system, you can install a VacPan by Nutone in your kitchen baseboard or toe kick.  Sweep the dirt pile over to the VacPan and the dirt is suctioned straight into the central vacuum system.  No more bending over or dust pans.

Keurigs with Direct Water Lines

Some Keurig coffee makers with line extensions that automatically supplies water conveniently. Water kuerig-copyline extensions insure consistent, clean quality of the coffee.  Most coffeemakers on the market today with attachable water supply outlets.

Touchless faucets

Touchless faucets offer motion sensor technology which allows you to use the faucet without touching anything. There are two ways in which you can do that.  One way is to move your hand over the faucet and the flow of screen-shot-2016-11-13-at-6-11-29-pmwater begins and move your hand again to stop the flow or you may place a container below the spout and water automatically flows and stops when you remove it.  The handles change the temperature and flow of water.

 

 

Pot Fillers

If you have a cold water line installed over your range, a backsplash faucet can be conveniescreen-shot-2016-11-13-at-6-14-35-pmntly installed above your range and provides water to large pasta and soup pots.  No more heavy lifting and sloshing water all over the floor.

 

 

 


Ventless Hoods

Ductless range hoods are perfect for interior first floor interior kitchen walls. A ductless range hood consists of a fan with a charcoal filter that drascreen-shot-2016-11-13-at-5-51-15-pmws grease particles, heat, smells, and smoke  into a charcoal filter and recirculates it back into the kitchen. The new Hoodini is a self-contained, ventless hood with an innovative closed recirculating system that removes steam, smoke and fumes.
Make a bold statement in your modern kitchen design with a contemporary European style design.

 

Microwave Drawers

Microwave drawers are in high demand for a reason.  Microwave drawers are conveniently located at hip level, allowing for much safer handling and installed at an accessible height for children and equipped with safety locks for homes with toddlers. No more pesky turntable.screen-shot-2016-11-03-at-2-58-57-pm
