From twists on mainstays to reinvention of the basics, these products come recommended by kitchen designers.
This natural-quartz countertop material is nonporous, so it won’t stain or harbor bacteria. It’s Greenguard-certified—meaning it has no impact on indoor air quality—and needs no chemical conditioners or polishers. Cambria is also available in 100 colors, from neutrals to jewel tones.
Fisher & Paykel CoolDrawer
Eliminate the overflowing fridge with an under-counter version. The first multi-temperature fridge drawer, the CoolDrawer can also serve as a freezer or wine cooler. Available finished or integrated with cabinetry.
Electrolux Dual-Fuel Ranges
Dual-fuel ranges combine the power of a gas cooktop with the precision of an electric oven. The oven also offers convection technology to ensure even cooking and up to 30 percent faster cooking times.
Wolf Drawer Microwave
Ditch the clunky upper-mounted microwave and streamline your kitchen with a Wolf drawer microwave oven. Available in 24-inch or 30-inch width, they can be installed under the counter or below a Wolf Series E oven.
Royal Mosa Wall Tiles
Rather than the typical 3- by-6-inch backsplash tile, Royal Mosa wall tiles mix it up with 4- by-4-inch, 4- by-8-inch, or 4- by-12-inch sizes. The Trocadero collection includes a classic white subway tile in 4- by-8-inch. Add a 4- by-4-inch color inset or border to create a splash.
