The Galley Ideal Workstation
is showing up in many of his
kitchen projects. Homeowners
can use it to prepare, serve,
entertain and clean up, and
it is available in six lengths
in single- and double-bowl
configurations.

CRAIG MCMAHON, CRAIG MCMAHON ARCHITECTS,
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

Kitchen design is evolving as new systems are coming into play that really
change how food is prepared, particularly The Galley sink system and induction cooking.Typically, I would say a majority of kitchens have the traditional
gas-fired stove and hood as the centerpiece, but that is changing.The working
island has evolved with the microwave and refrigerator drawer systems, and
pantry pullout garages have really helped the usefulness of a kitchen vs. the
walk-in, poorly planned closet.
For countertops, synthetic stone materials like Silestone are our standards
now. Even though we live in an area where natural stone is prevalent, available
and cost effective, the synthetic materials far outlast natural stone in regard
to staining, scratching and durability.
In terms of appliances, Sub-Zero, Wolf and Viking have enormous goto staying power with their name recognition, however, I am seeing other
manufacturers really moving up and being specified.The glass-door refrigerators are a big hit on many of our projects, and induction cooking is making
headway into the residential market - albeit slowly. Owners still seem to
want to see a real fire in the kitchen, but the induction cooking systems are
much more efficient, and because they only require a vent and not the larger
hoods, this changes the look of the kitchen.
Technology is where everything is advancing at an accelerated rate.There
are controls for just about everything today, including lighting, sound systems
and appliances.We are quickly moving to the complete smart home-designed
system, but we still have much to learn to integrate this into our designs. We
spend a great deal of time and effort exploring what works and what is too
overwhelming for clients in learning curve and cost.

LEFT TOP This project by Nor-

mandy Design Build Remodeling features a freestanding
tub by Victoria + Albert and
dimensional floor tiles.

LEFT BOTTOM The Shaws
Farmhouse Sink by ROHL is
handcrafted in Darwen, England. Each sink is hand poured,
shaped and stamped with the
name of the artisan who created it. Made from heavy-duty
fireclay, the sinks are resistant
to acids, alkalis and aggressive
chemicals.

MATTHEW QUINN, DESIGN GALLERIA, ATLANTA

Although I don't typically specify stainless-steel appliances, the material
has stood the test of time, and white will always win as the color of choice
for tile, cabinetry and countertops. White marble is timeless; it has been
used as an architectural element for centuries, and there are no authentic
substitutes. I am loving many of the gorgeous quartzites coming out of
South America, and I still use lots of Cambria, Silestone and Caesarstone
for my worry-free and modern clientele.
Miele performs beautifully and is perfect for my modern interiors, and
La Cornue is my go-to luxury brand for memorable and timeless kitchens.
I have a stainless-steel sink collection with Julien Home Refinements, and
the company will make any size sink with several super-cool, a la carte options. I always specify the Insinkerator Evolution Compact Series for the
disposal with a fiberoptic switch because it is quiet and gives me more room
under the sink, and I love Newport Brass faucets for their multiple finishes.
In terms of bathroom fixtures, I am a little biased since I have a collection
with MTI Baths. The company has so many amazing products that fit every
style, size, budget and lead time, and they are made right here in Georgia. I am
specifying a lot of Brizo for its Litze Collection because I like the lines, ROHL
for its quality and Waterworks because of the authenticity of the design.
As lighting is the most important element of a kitchen or bath project,
the selection is incredibly vital. My go-to brands include Circa Lighting,
Apparatus, Jonathan Browning, Ochre, Avrett, Hudson Valley, Ironware
International, Boyd and Gregorius Pineo.

tion by Waterworks is a favorite of Quinn's for its classic
design. Pictured is the Henry
Pulldown Kitchen Faucet.

KAREN CHANAN, NORMANDY DESIGN BUILD
REMODELING, CHICAGO

A product with staying power will not look too
trendy or outdated in five years and will still function well over time. Some examples of products
and materials that can work in many applications
and always look classic and sophisticated include
countertops with a marble look, subway tile, stainless-steel appliances, Shaker-style white or gray
cabinets, farmhouse sinks and freestanding tubs.
For the kitchen, steam/speed ovens are a great
way to get a secondary oven and still keep most
of the functionality of a microwave. Quartz requires little to no maintenance and can still give

countertops the marble appearance for which
homeowners are looking. I like to specify sinks
with accessories like sliding cutting boards and
colanders. In the bathroom, shower columns are
a way to use the existing plumbing to include both
a showerhead (or rainshower) and a handheld
without the expense of new plumbing.
I like to layer LED lighting with light-task/
undercabinet options, overhead lighting and decorative elements - all on dimmers. I also specify
touchless faucets, appliances with digital readouts,
digital shower systems and products that connect
with Google Home and Amazon Alexa.
