10 Things Nobody Tells You About Renovating Your Kitchen

In our new weekly series called 10 Things Nobody Tells You, we unpack remodeling basics that first-timers might not know… and reveal a few things even seasoned renovators might find surprising. In this week’s installment, we’re tackling one of the biggest projects homeowners might face: the kitchen remodel. Here are 10 things to consider, down to the outlets. Above: Photograph by Matthew Williams and styling by Alexa Hotz for Remodelista, from A Luminous, Euro-Style Row House in Washington, D...

6 Countertop Smart Ovens That Will Change the Way You Cook

Even we can admit it: Ovens are not the most exciting topic. But smart ovens? Now this workhorse household appliance sounds glamorous and intriguing: “Let me preheat my smart oven while you park the Tesla” has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? All kidding aside, the market seems to be exploding with cooking gadgets that take the guesswork out of roasting, let you control the temperature from your phone, and even claim to replace all your countertop appliances. Here are a few we’ve seen: Abo...

Kitchen of the Week: Art and Soul in a Copenhagen Kitchen

Scandinavian contemporary kitchens are known for their pale, stripped-down allure. But this custom design by KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri (translation: Copenhagen Cabinetmaking) takes the opposite tack. Equal parts refined and homey, it’s composed of fumed oak, dark stone, and patinated brass offset by artwork and patterned tiles. A combination island/breakfast counter dominates the floor space. Look closely and you’ll spot the world’s chicest appliance garage. and there’s a true hearth in the c...

Remodeling 101: All About Butcher Block Countertops

Warm and accommodating, butcher block is an affordable countertop material with a lot going for it. Maintain them regularly and butcher block countertops will reward you by aging gracefully. But without proper upkeep, they can dull and crack. Are butcher block countertops the right material for you and your kitchen? Read our butcher block counter primer to find out. Above: Good enough for a chef: a butcher-block countertop in the Manhattan kitchen of chef David Tanis; see A Chef’s Low-Tech, E...

Kitchen of the Week: A Hacienda Kitchen in Sonoma’s Hippest Winery

Brothers Andrew and Adam Mariani are fourth generation California farmers who, after spending time as vineyard hands in Europe, returned to their hometown and bought an old vineyard in the foothills of Sonoma, California, to start their own winery, Scribe. The early 1900s hacienda was in need of a complete overhaul (it had partially burned down in a fire), so working with architect David Darling of San Francisco firm Aidlin Darling, they restored the interiors without losing the essential charac...

Portlandia: Inside the Remodeled Farmhouse of a Cult Favorite Ceramicist

We’ve been fans of Portland, Oregon-based Notary Ceramics—the project of ceramicist Sarah Van Raden—ever since she exhibited at our Portland Market a few years back. Since then, her vessels and artful flower frogs have popped up everywhere, well beyond the Pacific Northwest. But becoming one of the country’s cult favorite ceramicists was not always the plan. Van Raden first took a pottery class in college, but didn’t go near a wheel again until a decade later, when she signed up for a class at a...

L.A. Story: A Budget Kitchen Makeover, DIY Countertop Hack Included

Last week, we received an email from Jessica Bunge, senior market editor at Emily Henderson Design, that grabbed our attention. She had recently renovated the small kitchen in her 363-square-foot apartment in Los Angeles. Among her design inspirations? The kitchen of Sarah Lonsdale, one of Remodelista’s founding team members. Would we like to see her remodeled space, she wondered. One look at the before/after pictures, and it was clear that we needed to write about it. From the chic built-in bre...

Kitchen of the Week: An Eco-Friendly, Elevated Ikea Kitchen in a Family’s Forever Home

When builder Steve Albertson and his wife Carole sold their former home, they intended to find some land and build a forever home for themselves and their son Ty. It took nearly seven years, but they finally landed on the perfect parcel: in charming Hatfield, Massachusetts, on the banks of a large pond. Keeping the home healthy for Ty, who has autism, was at the top of their priority list and to that end, their forever home is equipped with whole-home air and water filters, as well as having a N...

New to Ikea: The Cool Foldable Table Every Small Kitchen Needs

What we’re eyeing at the moment: a simple and attractive foldable table from Ikea. It’s from the Ivar collection of unfinished-pine storage shelving, a line that we’ve admired for years (see it in New Classics: 8 Ikea Storage Pieces that Designers Love to Use (Over and Over). This new shelving and foldable table combo, though, hit stores just a couple weeks ago. The top folds down to create a table for three; closed, the compact unit is less than 12 inches deep, making it an ideal option for tig...

Steal This Look: The $4K Parisian Kitchen from Two DIY Experts

You might think the impressively low price tag ($4,200) is what makes this renovation from Parisian designers Heju so exceptional, but it’s also the size. The kitchen is nested in a chambre de bonne, Paris’s answer to worker’s housing in the top floor garret of most buildings. The rooms are typically 65 to 130 square feet; they’re impossibly small (I know because I lived in one for a year) and any semblance of a kitchen is rarely functional. But Heju solved the problem with grey and white color-...

Kitchen of the Week: New Kitchen Components from an English Sculptor-Turned-Artisan

We first posted on UK-based sculptor-turned-carpenter Edward Collinson a couple of years ago (see A Simple Bespoke Cabin in North Yorkshire, Father/Son Edition). Since then, from his North London studio and workshop, Collinson has been at work on a new collection of freestanding kitchen furniture, which “represent the studio’s belief that a kitchen can be made with the same refined elegance as any piece of domestic wooden furniture.” Here’s a look: Styling by Hannah Franklin and photography by P...

Steal This Look: A Plaster Pink Kitchen in Bath, England

It’s hard not to be seduced by the all-white kitchen, but for those willing to make permanent decisions in color, like colorful ranges and painted cabinets, the payoff can be huge. Take this pastel kitchen designed by Nicola Harding for a couple living in a renovated Georgian manse. On color, Harding explains: “We used dark colors to make large or shady spaces feel more intimate, and warm, uplifting tones to make grand spaces feel more relaxed.” With Plain English cabinets, factory lights, antiq...

Kitchen of the Week: An Architecture Firm’s Own DIY Kitchen in Williamsburg, Ikea Hacks Included

It’s been nearly a year since Julie stopped into an event in the East Williamsburg headquarters of Fabr Studio and, after poking around the premises, promptly dubbed them “Brooklyn’s most inventive, resourceful, economy-minded, under-the-radar architecture firm.” (She later returned with photographer Matthew Williams and his camera to capture the studio, and its garden, in full.) Since then, we’ve been seeing Fabr Studio’s work pop up everywhere, solidifying Julie’s initial hunch: this is the fi...

Kitchen of the Week: At Home with the Ultimate Minimalists, the Creators of Cereal Magazine

If Cereal, the travel and style magazine, were an actual cereal, it would be an exquisitely simple concoction—the result of an around-the-world exploration of flavors and textures, arrestingly packaged in shades of pale. Aesthetics matter a lot to Rosa Park and Rich Stapleton, the publication’s founders who spend half the year on the road in search of their particular brand of minimalist cool.

Indoor-Outdoor Living in Paris: A Windowless Warehouse Converted into a Family Loft, Central Courtyard Included

New meaning for hidden potential: when Marie and Gilles Ballard were searching for bigger quarters in Paris for their family of four, they toured possibilities of all sorts—until they came to across a single-story industrial building in the 11th, “a Chinese fabrics warehouse with no windows or openings to bring in light.” It was exactly what they were looking for. “Given the price of real estate in Paris, we had to find something that no one else wanted,” says Gilles. “We hoped to imagine and cr...

A Famous Filming Location, Available for Let: Glenfeshie Estate and Cottages in Scotland

If the Glenfeshie Estate looks familiar, that’s probably because, realize it or not, you’ve seen it before. Over the past few years, it’s played the part of Balmoral Castle in Netflix’s The Crown, and served as backdrop for the iconic scene in The Queen where a bereaved Queen Elizabeth (Helen Mirren), alone in the Scottish Highlands, spots a stag. Owned by Wildland—the same conservationist owners behind Killiehuntly Estate, another of our favorites, and several others throughout the Scottish cou...

Kitchen of the Week: An Open Kitchen in Kiev with a Touch of Subtle Glamour

Last month we visited an apartment called Birdsnest remodeled by 28-year-old architect Emil Dervish. It was the first project we’ve ever featured in the Ukrainian city of Kiev. But more than the location, what interested most readers was Dervish’s custom approach to storage. That’s especially the case in the kitchen, where the focal point is an outsized cabinet of untreated brass patinated from use. To some it looks like an abstract canvas, others see a mess of fingerprints. To us, it’s an unexp...

7 Favorite Architect-Approved Sources for Subway Tile

Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom, or another hardworking space in your home, you can’t go wrong with a classic subway tile. For us, it’s like the tile equivalent to a coat of white paint—a clean, fresh upgrade that looks good almost anywhere, with any architectural style. But, like the seemingly endless varieties of white paint (warm, cool, gallery, you get the picture), there are almost infinite interations of subway tiles, each with their own nuances. It made us wonder: What subway tiles ...

10 Easy Pieces: Best 36-Inch Counter-Depth Refrigerators

In a kitchen with standard 24-inch-deep cabinets and 25-inch countertops, a bulky 35-something-inch refrigerator sticks out. But with a counter-depth model—24 to 29 inches with doors, handles, and all—your refrigerator is as close to flush as possible without going for the pricer built-in models. (Counter-depth fridges are thousands of dollars less than built-in styles.)

Kitchen of the Week: A Minimalist, Wabi-Sabi Kitchen in a Contemporary Tokyo Apartment

The ancient principles of wabi-sabi (loose translation: the acceptance of transience and imperfection) find a home in a contemporary Tokyo apartment designed by Naruse Inokuma Architects in collaboration with Karibe Hiroko Architects. Says Naruse: “By using new materials to create a sense of the old, we created a dynamic interior; the existing space adapts to the new, yet the age-old beauty remains.” Nowhere is this more apparent than in the kitchen, which relies on a limited materials palette o...
