2003 Idea Houses

Our kitchen design strikes a casual note, dictated in part by the bright red panel on the dishwasher. "There is a growing trend toward bold-color appliances, and homeowners can find these new products at their local retailers," says Bertelsen. "We wanted to demonstrate how to use them; the trick is to be selective."

We carried the metallic look of the dual-fuel range onto the backsplash using stainless steel tiles that contrast with the black honed-granite countertop.

We chose a mix of manufactured cabinets ― charcoal uppers and pewter lower ones ― to show how you can achieve a distinctive look without custom cabinets. Seeded-glass fronts and open shelving make the room appear more spacious.
