Our kitchen faucet collections fuse perfect ergonomics with award-winning design. With a diverse range of designs and material finishes to choose from finding a pull-out kitchen faucet to complement your kitchen decor and meet your functional requirements is easy with GROHE.
The latest trend in contemporary kitchens is the thick slab countertop effect. While most countertops are normally 2” thick choosing a 3 – 5” thick countertop creates an anchored stately look. Remember to adjust cabinet heights accordingly to make up for the height increase from the thicker countertops.
Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
In general if the kitchen faucet has a straight spout you need to ‘pull out’ the spray. If the spout points downwards then you ‘pull down’ to use the spray.
Engineering and technology have made a wide variety of design choices and finishes possible. While most of the following kitchen countertop ideas are durable it’s a good idea to always work with cutting boards and silicone trivets for hot pots. Keep countertop surfaces clean with a non-abrasive soft towel and follow manufacturer or installation guidelines on what products to use to clean and maintain the beauty of your countertops for years.
Mosaics and Focal Points The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
