meanwhile, in the latest issue of Consumer Reports...
A good issue if you are building. Info on counters, kitchen design, flooring, ranges, ovens, refrigerators, and dishwashers. Speaking of kitchen design, here's what they list out as "IN" in kitchens these days:
1. Contemporary and transitional styles
2. European-style frameless cabinets
3. Steam ovens
4. Gray, white, and off-white color schemes
5. Quartz countertops
6. Pullout faucets and chrome finishes
7. Pull-out trash/recycling bins
8. LED lighting
Outside of the steam oven, that's our kitchen!
