  4. Smart Appliances – Smart appliances are becoming more popular year after year. We have refrigerators that keep track of your grocery list, ranges that hold onto your recipes, and dishwashers that will wait until power consumption is at its lowest through the day to operate.
  5. Unique Appliances – Wine storage units, column-style or drawer-style refrigerators, and small drawer dishwashers free up space in the cabinetry for additional cabinets. The steam oven is geared toward a healthier lifestyle and is a great way to heat up leftovers from the day before.
  6. Painted Appliances – Add a spark of color to your appliances by painting them whatever color you wish. Most auto body shops will paint items like the range hood, dishwasher, and refrigerator to your specifications.
  7. Ornate Backsplashes – Add a dramatic flair to your kitchen by installing an ornate backsplash that adds color and sophistication to your kitchen. Faux textured surfaces are becoming the next big thing in countertops and backsplashes. Consider a velvet or leather appearance with the durability of stone.
