For about the last 15 years, stainless steel finish has been the top choice for kitchen appliances because it stands up to wear & tear. The downside of stainless steel: the smudges. A small issue for some, but with a load of kids (like we have), it can seem like the stainless steel surface is never clean. Enter: Smudge-Proof. When it came time to pick appliances for our kitchen remodel, I chose Frigidaire Professional because I fell in love with their Smudge-Proof stainless steel collection.
With the range, I chose a model that has a continuous grate top versus four separate burners. This allows me to move pots & pans easily to fit more. Additionally, there is a 2-in-1 Burner & Griddle, which is ideal for simmering sauces as well as flipping pancakes.
Having open shelving allows the ability to bring color into the kitchen. Instead of the solid, one-tone look of cabinets, open shelving adds depth and a way to introduce color. Continuing the subway tile backsplash up the wall behind the hood was another way to heighten the overall space and not have the wall start/stop at a certain point.

Layer color and texture into your kitchen space by adding accessories like rugs, window treatments, and wall décor.
