Have It Your Way
It's your house. Customize it with products that let you tailor how you cook, cool, and clean up.
Your Height Mirror
Your viewpoint matters most in front of the shaving mirror. Ginger's Columnar adjustable vanity mirror can be set to any height that suits along its 14-inch-long, wall-mounted bracket
Get the Fridge You Want
To configure the unit you desire, think modular. Liebherr's Flexible Fridges let you mix and match zones with 24-inch-wide towers that function as a refrigerator, a freezer, or a stacked combo freezer/wine cooler.]\
Sinks with integral accessories like drain grids and cutting boards all in one tidy area are a growing trend. Order Franke's 34-inch-wide Culinary Work Center with a removable tempered-glass cutting board, drain tray, lock-in colander, pull-down faucet, in-the-counter knife block and food scale (not shown), plus custom wall rails designed to accept bins and bowls
Got a 5-foot and a 6-foot cook in the house? The motorized vent sleeve of Miele's range hood retracts from a clearance of 28 inches to 40, to prevent head-bumping no matter who’s minding the stove
Even tiny kitchens can get a pro-grade cooking center. Ariston's Experience line features a steam oven (no plumbing necessary, since it uses a reservoir), a convection oven, and a warming drawer (not shown)—all 24 inches wide.
An island that rises (and lowers) to the occasion is easier on the back. John Boos's plug-in Electric Ergonomic Grande Workstation lets you adjust its classic butcher-block surface from 30 to 40 inches high with the push of a button.
If you have the urge to show off your creative flair in your kitchen, consider a vent hood that comes ready to receive your own tile, glass, plaster, or paint, like the one shown from Zephyr.
