Kitchen

Design the heart of your home for entertaining with ease. Get organized, clean and efficient.

CLEAN

The kitchen can harbor germs on just about every surface. Rocky Mountain Hardware has partnered with CuVerro® to offer homeowners the same type of anti-microbial protection hospitals use. All Rocky Mountain Hardware products can be cast of EPA registered-CuVerro® antimicrobial copper alloy upon request. The hardware helps inhibit buildup and growth of bacteria between routine cleanings. The continuous antibacterial action never wears or washes away, chips or peels. Pricing depends upon the style of hardware, plus an upcharge for the anti-microbial product. Rocky Mountain Hardware, 888.788.2013 | rockymountainhardware.com

EFFICIENT

The Miele Whole Bean Built-in Coffee System boasts new features that will turn you into a barista supreme. A cup sensor automatically adjusts the height of the spout; the machine automatically rinses all milk spouts and hoses; and you can prepare two different drinks, such as a cappuccino and a latté at the same time. $3,699.

ORGANIZED

Drawers are replacing lower cabinets in the kitchen. That means no more bending and searching for dishes. Use liners, such as these from Porcelanosa, to up the function quotient of your drawers. About $670. To-the-trade only. Porcelanosa (601 S. Broadway, Denver), 303.802.3210 | porcelanosa-usa.com
