Another year has come and gone, which means it’s time to reflect on our most popular posts from 2022. We love taking the time to review the designs that grace our Instagram to reflect on this year’s trends and think about what new ideas we believe will emerge as we head into the next year.
Do you see yourself designing a kitchen like the ones below for yourself or a client? Below are our most admired kitchens of 2022 to provide inspiration for your next project.
It’s Not all White Anymore
Remember when all-white kitchens were the most desirable? They aren’t anymore!
The latest trending kitchens do feature white as the main color, but instead of everything in one shade, there are multiple shades of white spread throughout the space. This kitchen features bright white cabinetry with a range hood surround in off-white. That same off-white hue makes its way into the shiny, rectangular zellige backsplash and countertops. This kitchen is finished off with wooden accents of varying finishes and grains. It’s still the all-white look, but updated for a warmer atmosphere in the home.
This kitchen also takes the top spot for one of the most popular on our Instagram. Similar to Home by Julianne, @kalakleindesigns used white zellige-like Scandinavian tile, white cabinetry and off-white countertops. She paired it with a wooden-framed range hood surround and wooden décor dotting the walls and windowsill.
This kitchen features our 36” Electric Double Oven Range.
New Uses for Traditional Cookware
This lovely Dutch oven isn’t just used for cooking – turn it into a makeshift flower pot to display directly on your range! Laura Reister used her Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Heart Cocotte for Valentine’s Day flowers. You may want to try this hack if you have little no counterspace, but still would like to display seasonal blooms. It’s perfect for apartments or kitchens without islands.
This kitchen features our 36” Prestige Dual Fuel Double Oven Range.
Pops of Color in Unexpected Places
Susan Serra also features a red Le Creuset Dutch oven in her kitchen, which perfectly matches the red runner and Burgundy knobs. So many ranges on the market only offer knobs in Chrome, but our Designer Series ranges allow you to choose two colors of knobs –– Black and Burgundy.
This kitchen features our 36” Designer Series Induction Range in Matte Black with Burgundy knobs. The range is reminiscent of the iconic Christian Louboutin black pump with red soles ––daring in black with a surprising pop of color in the most unexpected places.

Give thanks this holiday season with your loved ones by enjoying a classic Thanksgiving meal. From stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy to cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, there are plenty of dishes that will bring warmth and joy to the table.
But if you’ve ever hosted or are planning to host a Thanksgiving dinner, you know the turkey takes center stage during this holiday. To help you perfect your turkey dinner, we’ve compiled a few frequently asked questions that will get you prepared for your holiday feast.
With hundreds of varieties, shapes and sizes, pasta has found its way into almost every culture and home around the world. A staple comfort food with endless recipes, this delectable delicacy is versatile and accessible making it a household favorite. In celebration of National Pasta Month, we’ve put together some helpful tips on how to take your pasta-making game to the next level:
Build from Scratch
Making pasta from scratch can seem like an intimidating process, but with a little practice, you may just find the time and effort required to preparing this family favorite is not only fun, but well worth it. Delicious and rich in flavor, fresh pasta only requires a handful of basic ingredients and is fun to make with family and friends in the kitchen—plus, it cooks quicker than store bought, with an average al dente time 6 mins faster!
Add a Pot Filler to Your Kitchen
Tired of carrying heavy pots full of water from the sink to the stove? Consider adding a pot filler above your range to reduce trips back and forth allowing you to get your pasta water boiling even faster, all while keeping your sink and countertop areas open and free for food preparation.
Opt for Induction: Precision Cooking
With their precise temperature control and energy efficiency, induction stoves and cooktops are quickly making their way into more American homes as a reliable and safe form of cooking. Ranges like Verona’s 36” Designer Series Induction offer homeowners versatility and precise temperature control over their cooking with additional power levels like “Gentle Heat”— a lower, three-level heat setting which provides continuous gentle heat, ideal for creating more delicate pasta dishes, such as Carbonara and Bolognese, where sauces are prone to breaking if exposed to too much heat.
Opt for Induction: Rapid Heating
They say “a watched pot never boils,” but we think otherwise. Quickly boil large pots of water with Verona’s 36” Designer Series Induction “PowerBoost” function—a precise heat setting that operates at the maximum power level for up to 10 mins, allowing your pasta water to boil faster than ever. And, for those times when you need to bring sauces up to a boil then reduce to a simmer, the “Fast Heating” function is a quick and efficient setting that allows you to rapidly heat up food or liquid then automatically reduce the temperature to a pre-selected heat setting.
Finish Your pasta in a Saucier
When creating a pasta sauce, a higher-walled saucier allows you room to work with your ingredients, giving you more flexibility than a regular sauce pan. With the wide base and high walls, you can build your sauce and add pasta directly to the saucier yielding a more flavorful pasta as it absorbs some of the sauce while cooking.

Fall is in the air! As the leaves begin to change and the days grow cooler, what better way to welcome this autumnal shift then adding seasonal décor into the heart of your home.
From incorporating lush accents and bold colors to adding organic, natural accessories, give your kitchen the refresh it needs inspired by the rich autumn harvest.
Read below for some of our favorite style tips on how to decorate your kitchen for fall.
Neutral Color Palette
Using neutral colors such as beige, green and brown create the perfect color palette for a warm and cozy space. Additionally, accents such as copper containers, green wreaths and wooden accessories add a glamorous yet natural beauty.
Accessorize Your Kitchen Island
Keeping your kitchen island functional yet stylish is key. Creating an eye-catching arrangement consisting of fall scented candles, a small wooden tray, greenery and gourds is the perfect combination of texture and color creating blissful ambiance to your space.
Pumpkins. Pumpkins. And More Pumpkins.
Whether it’s felt garland adorning your cabinets, stacked pumpkins from the local farmers market or detailed embroidered hand towels, there is no end to the elegant and fun ways you can incorporate this seasonal staple into your home.
A fun, yet easy way to bring fall into your kitchen is through a beautiful and bountiful tablescape. Adding fresh fruits, candles, wooden cutting boards and herbs creates an organically balanced surrounding for your showstopper meal.
In the world of appliances brands, smart consumers are finding entry-level luxury brands like Verona Appliances whose style, quality and functionality are on par with trendier brands, but come at a more accessible price and are in-stock!
First there were no appliances to be found and then came the price increases due to supply chain issues and inflation. While manufacturers have shouldered some of the costs, consumers are seeing at minimum a 13% increase in appliance pricing from 2021 to 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and in some cases, they could be as high as 20% more given that many promotional plans and rebates have been discontinued. Moving from high-priced brands to an “entry-level luxury brand” can go a long way right now for the customer that needs to balance their budgets.
Fortunately, there are hidden gems in the market that are beautiful, functional and reliable – but they do not carry the same high price point as trendier brands. These entry-level luxury brands are getting more than a second look as savvy consumers are ditching brands whose pricing has risen astronomically for companies who have items in stock, come at a lower price and often prove to be more feature rich for the money. With a little research and persistence, consumers are unearthing these gemstones and turning them into hot commodities overnight.
“As a family-owned company since 1958, we are seeing a lot of interest in our brand recently,” states Melissa Haber, vice president of Verona Appliances. “Verona is crafted in Italy, but made for the U.S. market. We don’t spend millions of dollars in marketing – so it takes a little extra effort to find us – but feature-by-feature, our products are on-par, if not better than brands that can charge more because they have more status in the market. Our office still answers phone calls in person, in New York, and our customers really appreciate the one-on-one connection, service and help. There are definite benefits beyond price for picking brands like Verona.”
“Consumers should also be wary of ‘made-in-China’ copycat brands that have recently come on the market – they lack quality and features but their price points are low, so they are grabbing the sale,” states Haber. “They do not compare in features and quality to established brands like Verona that have a good track record for service and quality. Consumers really have to look to find not just a good price, but a great value.”
Verona Appliances recently introduced their Prestige collection with seven new 36” electric ranges. The new 36” electric double oven ranges are an industry exclusive, with an upgraded look that is only surpassed by its high-powered capabilities. The single ovens are offered in four colors (Stainless Steel, White, Matte Black and Burgundy) and the double ovens offered in three colors (Stainless Steel, White and Matte Black).
