House Hunters International: Swiss Kitchens

...... so in my last post before leaving for Switzerland to go house hunting, I joked about what I might encounter when looking at kitchens there.  Well, let me tell you, I was happily surprised.  What I found were sleek, modern designs and finishes filled with the latest appliances (minus a giant ice maker like we love here in the States).   Here's a sampling......


yes, that is a marble floor



my favorite..... because of the red, ofcourse, combined with that great ledge to fill with delicious Italian olive oils and vinegars and a piece of framed art...... oh, and that slate floor.



this kitchen was better equipped than my kitchen at home, with a built in wine refrigerator and griddle.... and it was in a multi-story apartment building!

Ofcourse, I would definitely have to infuse a hefty dose of "homey" into these contemporary designs but pretty impressive, no?

  8. It truly is always a smart concept to use wood countertops for your property. If you already have a different countertop, you'll be able to simply replace it with the wooden countertop. No other countertop can turn your dwelling as beautiful as a wooden countertop.
