Cooking with Gas

A buffet of products appoints kitchens in style

One-Stop Shopping
Porcelanosa’s G680 Kitchen features flat-fronted cabinets with soft-closing drawers (pictured in a combination of Blanco matte and Roble Camel Vintage finishes), Krion countertops and integrated handles. Porcelanosa’s kitchens are customizable and available in numerous colors and finishes at its Rockville showroom. porcelanosa-usa.com

Look, No Hands
Moen’s new MotionSense hands-free faucet is convenient, hygienic and energy efficient. A hand or object placed in front of the top or base of the faucet will activate the stream of water—as will using a traditional lever, also available in this model. The faucet turns on and off only when the sensor is triggered, thereby saving water. moen.com

Classic Style
Brick-style, white porcelain tiles from Architectural Ceramics create a classic look and a fresh, neutral vibe in any kitchen—traditional or modern. Available at all area locations, glazed, unglazed or highly polished and in three-by-six-inch tiles (shown here) as well as a range of other sizes. architecturalceramics.net

A Family Affair
Their Scandinavian heritage was the inspiration for an American mother/daughter design team when they launched the kitchen furniture company Bornholm Kitchen, named for a small Danish island. The cabinet above houses a sink as well as a dishwasher drawer and plenty of storage. Made in the U.S. out of walnut or rift oak and sustainable building materials. bornholmkitchen.com

Quiet, Please
Clean lines characterize Zephyr’s island-mount Next Generation Europa Range Hood. A stainless-steel, chimney-style hood, it includes the company’s DCBL Suppression System, a computer-operated motor that increases energy efficiency and decreases noise. Pictured here, the Modena hood, part of the Essentials Europa Collection. zephyronline.com

Clean Air Act
With its E.ion collection of chic, pendant-style hoods, Italian designer Falmec concentrates on eliminating not just smoke and lingering cooking smells but pollutants like dust, pollen, dust mites and viruses. Sold internationally and through Falmec North America in Ontario, Canada. Pictured here, the Twister hood. falmecnorthamerica.com

A Clean Slate
For those who want the sleek look of stainless steel without smudges and fingerprints, GE Appliances now offers a solution: the Slate finish, which offers a slightly darker metal hue with a matte surface that repels smudges. GE products with Slate finish, including refrigerators, dishwashers, over-the-range microwaves and free standing electric or gas ranges, are available through Appliance Distributors Unlimited. adu.com; geappliances.com

French Flair
The French company THG Paris brings haute design to the kitchen with the Bastide faucet. Featuring porcelain Provençal-style levers, a distinctively curved spout and a turned, cylindrical base, it’s available with a choice of one or two levers and separate hand spray. thgusa.com

Oh, Canada
The Canadian cabinetry company Zonavita—part of the Decor Cabinet Company—was inspired by contemporary European design. Products boast clean lines, smooth, polished surfaces and smart storage solutions, with more than 100 door style, material and color combinations. Zonavita is now sold locally through Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Pictured, a Zonavita kitchen designed by Gilmer. jennifergilmerkitchens.com

Blast From the Past
First used centuries ago, the fireclay sink remains a popular alternative to porcelain and stainless steel. The clean-lined, modern Cerana sink is Blanco’s first fireclay sink to be sold in the U.S. Fired at ultra-high temperatures, the clay is highly resistant to shock, heat, acid, discoloration and chipping. Available with a rounded or contoured apron front. blancoamerica.com
