Installation is tricky with no room for error. Granite slabs can be easily damaged during installation and cannot be repaired. A damaged slab must be replaced without costs. Also, the base cabinets must be sturdy enough to hold the weight of the granite slab, which is something to seriously consider if you are remodeling. According to Rempros, granite countertops, in particular, require professional installation. Cutting the slab, making the sink cutouts, polishing edges and seaming is challenging. The Family Handyman says that it‘s not worth it for a do it your selfer to invest the time and dollars required for something they will likely do only once Radon is a radioactive gas that forms when radium decays into radon, and it is naturally found in granite.
SMEG is definitely known for its colorful appliances and retro style refrigerators, however, their ranges and cooktops are just as bright and innovative. A free-standing model in bright orange enamel is a great way to add a pop to the kitchen along with a highly functional and easy-to-use range. On the shelf behind are 50‘s style small appliances that SMEG has introduced in the United States. The colors and retro style appeal to many home and apartment dwellers, whether they are serious cooks or weekend dabblers. Small kitchens can also have the latest innovations, such as this compact design from Blomberg. The company offers 24-inch ranges and very compact dishwashers, as well as integrated ventilation and lighting that makes the most of a small space. Smeg’s dishwashers come in sizes as small as 18 inches for the smallest kitchens, but all have a special system that ensures good water distribution during the washing cycles.
In a mixed design you could have black kitchen cabinets and white open shelves for visual contrast or grey kitchen cabinets with matching shelves for a cohesive look. On the same note, two-tone kitchen cabinets can be an interesting option if you want to play with colors and to create a dynamic decor. Another way to add color to the kitchen is by filling the open shelves with all sorts of items just as cups, containers, dishes and other things that contrast with the wall behind them. But color is just one of the things you can focus on when furnishing and decorating a room. Space-efficiency is another wonderful advantage that’s linked to open kitchen shelving. Let‘s say your kitchen has an odd layout or you have some empty corners to fill. Corner kitchen cabinets are one option but if you feel like they take up too much space or they make the room feel small, use open shelves instead. They can fit in all sorts of odd spaces such as nooks between the door and the wall or above the doors and windows.
