Pops of Color in Your Kitchen Appliances

One of the secrets to make a happy kitchen besides natural light is to bring pops of color to kitchen.  When designing a kitchen or contemplating a color palette, most people’s first thoughts go to the cabinets, countertops and backsplashes. And not without good reason, as these elements can dominate the space and will likely stay in it for many years.

3 independent cooling zones  allow you to simultaneously maintain temperature from 39° to 64° in the section you need: red wine, white wine and campaign.

Dacor’s fully integrated, full sized wine column easily holds up to 100 bottles of wine in three independently cooled zones, perfectly stored behind a triple layer of glass filled with argon gas to protect your wine collection from UV and IR rays. With a sleek design, the wine cellar comes panel-ready for graphite, stainless steel, or custom panels, with the option for a handle-free, push-to-open door. The column has four humidity sensors (one each per zone and one outside) to perfectly control the humidity level between 50%-80%, while Dacor’s own Precise Cooling Technology keeps temperature fluctuations within ±.3°F.  Receive notifications and real-time status of your collection through the IQ Connect WIFI system and SmartThings app.

6 New Innovations by Kohler in the Year of 2020

 

We couldn’t make to KBIS2020 this year but we were invited to Kohler Signature Store Irvine Grand Opening last night and were able to see some new products Kohler showcased at KBIS2020 which include Intelligent toilets, digital showering and an all-new lighting collection , bath accessories…

  1. Kohler Lighting—KOHLER Lighting made its official debut at KBIS 2020, with six new collections that offer a range of choices for creative interior lighting solutions.  The designs – from edgy industrial chic to classic understated form.  And last night we were able to view some of its new lighting collections. IMG_1702IMG_1710 Each of these lighting fixtures were designed by Kohler with the focus on bathroom and kitchen applications yet has the versatility and flair that can easily carry into other areas of the home, from entrance way chandeliers to dining room pendants.

 

2. Kohler Konnect :  Based on our research, what’s new in Kohler’s  Konnect concept is that  its new Moxie showerhead and wireless smart speaker blends the sophistication and design excellence of Kohler Performance Showering with a powerful range of impactful sound designed by Harman Kardon.  The showerhead features a full coverage spray and delivers the benefits of connected bathroom technology through its portable smart speaker with Amazon Alexa and the KOHLER Konnect App.

5 Kitchen Design Ideas You will Fall in Love for Your Holiday Celebration

We all agree that Kitchen is the heart of the home and people love to gather together having fun in their kitchens specially in holiday seasons. And of course, how you style your kitchen in holidays  will a set your mood for holiday celebrations. With the holiday season just around the corner, here are some tips you actually can apply to have a neat, fresh and chic kitchen ready for holidays.

  1. Declutter. It is kind of pyicological thing that we all feel great and pleasant by walking in a clean and well-organized room rather than a room stuffed with things, junkies from many years ago. Our excuses are always like ” I have to go through those” or I may need them one of these days ” or someone may need them.” The truth is many many years passing by, those things are still there and if you don’t use them even once a year, they can absolutely end up in your home cleaning list. And by doing so, we actually feel much lighter and less burden and stress. In case you don’t know Marien Kendall–she is decluttering guru from Japan, you can get some advises from her book:    The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story (The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up)

When you declutter your kitchen, I find it is pretty helpful you ask  yourself the following several questions(1) Do I truly need it?; (2) Do I truly adore it?; and, (3) Would I trade inner peace for this? The answers can help curb your pack-rat impulses, allowing you to clear out and move on.

2. Storage, storage, storage. Some really cool smart storage gadgets that will save you tones of time. I find out that a lot of people mainly focus on cabinetry, appliances and some other hard surfaces when they remodel their kitchen, and spend less time to think through the storage solutions since they are just accessories and their costs are not cheap sometimes and they always can add them later on.  The fact is  a lot of my clients rarely spend time to think about or do something more  once they finish their kitchen remodeling or they just buy a little bit of this and a little bit of that and end up with another cluttered kitchen with new cabinetry and surfaces. So, it is actually a good idea to think through your storage solutions one time when you remodel your kitchen.  Sometimes, those storage accessories coming with cabinetry are not cheap. If this is one of your concern, here are some suggestions for you:

A Brief Guide for Choosing your countertops—Quartz and Large-Format Porcelain

Today, I am going to continue the topic on how to choose right counter-tops for your kitchens. I talked about natural stones for countertops last week. If you haven’t read it, you can click here

Quartz

If you are the one who want modern look with less care but still want some natural elements, quartz countertops  are  the kind for you.

Quartz are engineered stone products  consisting of about 95-percent ground natural quartz and other materials with 5-percent binding resins. Here are the main features for quartz countertops:

1.Moh’s scale 6.5—7

2.Engineered from natural materials(Quartz) and added polymers, pigments and resins.

3. Engineered to be heat, scratch, pitch and stain resistant (but not bulletproof)

4. Mild soap and warm water to clean

5. Polished and textured finishes

6. Kitchen and bath applications

7. Not acceptable for outdoor applications.

Not all quartz countertops are created equal. The main players include: Silestone, Cambria, and Caesarstone.

Large-Format Porcelain

Large format porcelain tiles are really hitting the countertop market with their versatile designs now thanks to the advanced digital print technologies. Composed of clays and minerals fired at very higher temperatures, porcelain is a durable surface and is on the rise for use in kitchens and bathrooms.

Slabs of porcelain can come in sizes as large as 10’ x 5’, though they can be custom ordered to be much bigger or smaller. One of the most notable qualities of these slabs that you might discover in person is how thin they are. Measuring just 6-12mm in thickness, they automatically become some of the easiest and most lightweight materials to work with.

Here are some features of porcelain countertops:

  1. Moh’s scale: 7—9

2. Engineered material

3. The hardest, most heat, scratch and stain resistant materials of all materials used for countertops.

4. Mild soap and warm water to clean

5. Polished and textured finishes

6. Kitchen and bath applications

7. Indoor and outdoor application

8. Commercial application.

Companies such as Neolith and Florim have come out with stunning surfaces, with patterns that look almost identical to marble. Metropolitan has been fabricating full height backsplashes and full height fireplaces with large format porcelain, creating unique and beautiful spaces.

I hope you find the above information helpful

There are some protection kits. cleaning kits and pain kits you may find useful for your quartz countertop.
