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.
This kitchen peninsula has an irregular form and includes shelving storage for boxes, jars and other things. It can be used as a bar if desired but ultimately it remains a multifunctional feature. A kitchen peninsula adds counter space but this doesn’t mean its top has to match the counters. In fact, it could be interesting to play with contrasts and various combinations of materials, textures, finishes and colors. Just like islands, peninsulas can have a variety of different designs, forms and sizes, depending on the space available and the aesthetic preferences. A small peninsula such as this one can be a really great addition to a compact kitchen. If your kitchen has a large support beam or column and you don't really know what to do with it, use it as a support for a peninsula. It can be small and you can use it as a breakfast table in the morning.
Granite can be expensive and is among the costlier of countertop materials, particularly because of installation. And, its great weight means you'll need very sturdy cabinet boxes to support the countertop, which can be a concern if you are remodeling. In some kitchens, a large amount of granite might require extra floor supports as well. What is mainly an advantage for some might also be a slight disadvantage. While a glass or cup can survive a collision with some countertop surfaces, that’s generally not the case with granite. Drop a glass or plate on granite and you can be sure that it will break. Like most stone, granite must be sealed every so often to avoid stains. How often you have to seal the counter depend on the type of sealer you use and the color of your granite. If you have a dark granite top, you might not need to seal as often because minor discoloration is not visible. RemPros also notes that alkaline- or acid-based cleaners should not be used for cleaning granite.
