When it comes to the kitchen, it is difficult for me to narrow my list of favorite things. I could literately talk all day long about cabinetry, windows, appliances and more. However hard it may have been, below are my top 5 favorite things in the kitchen.
In the kitchen, the number one countertop material I recommend for homeowners is soapstone. This material is an excellent choice because it is heat resistant, a great option for those who cook on a daily basis. You do need to be careful about scratching the countertop, but you can remvove scratches easily by lightly sanding the area. Soapstone is also nonporous, so it does not need to be sealed. Most natural stones like granite and marbles need to be periodically sealed to prevent staining, in fact some stones even after being sealed will still stain. Soapstone is a very dense stone which will not absorb anything.
Heartland Dual Fuel Range
With a chic and sleek design, Heartland’s Dual Fuel Range is a beautiful choice for the kitchen. It’s also a dual range that I have loved having in my home. This unit comes complete with 4 gas burners, easy clean, porcelain coated solid cast iron grates and burner bowls and is available in 30 or 36 inch models. The dual fuel range offers the power and precision of the propane cooktop combined with the efficiency and convenience of the room 4 cubic foot self-cleaning electric convection oven.
For an open airy feel, a floating shelf makes it easy to reach items within the kitchen. From pots and pans to canisters, you can store practically anything on floating shelves. I recommend mixing floating shelves in with your closed-in cabinets to diversify the look in your kitchen.
KitchenAid’s Double-Drawer Dishwasher
The double drawer dishwashers are really a great appliance to have in your household.
