Quality kitchen countertops can be found in all styles and price ranges, and no one material is confined to a certain look. Countertops are an investment because they must withstand wear and tear and last for years to come. Browse our countertop buying guides to discover the best kitchen countertops for your kitchen and what material is best for your budget.
You won't have to sacrifice modern-day efficiency to gain retro flair. Refrigerators and ranges are available with vintage curves, fun nostalgic colors, and retro hardware. If you'd rather your appliances blend in with surroundings, a stainless-steel range remains a classic, while your refrigerator and dishwasher can disappear behind door panels that match cabinetry.
Kitchen sinks and faucets come in a variety of finishes and styles, so finding a combination that suits your style and budget is easy. Not only do you have a choice of kitchen sink materials, including concrete, solid-surfacing, stone, copper, and other precious metals, but the sizes and shapes can also be customized. There are corner sinks, apron-front or farmhouse styles, trough sinks, undermount sinks, and bar/prep sinks. And there is the vast selection of kitchen faucets from which to choose. Bridge faucets, pot fillers, pull-down faucets, and bar/prep sink faucets available in polished chrome, oil-rubbed bronzes, nickel, and other precious metals are among the faucet choices. Browse through the featured kitchens here and make note of how other homeowners successfully tackled issues such as kitchen sink placement and whether a single basin or double basin was used. Understanding their reasoning and applying it to your own kitchen will ultimately result in a sink and faucet duo that succeeds in both form and function. And don't miss our kitchen sink and faucet buying guides, which outline everything you need to know about choosing these kitchen essentials.
