How-To: Things in the Kitchen that Just Make Sense

Whether you’re revamping a kitchen that’s in need of a facelift or designing a new build, you’ll want to consider these kitchen must-haves from the experts at Kohler and Monogram.



A Sink with High Function and Style

Your kitchen sink is a major workhorse — and if your current sink just isn’t cut out for the job, take a look at the Prolific® sink by Kohler, which comes with a bamboo cutting board, two multipurpose grated racks, a colander, and a wash bin, which you can move about and position as you wish. Designed with noise reduction in mind, the sink offers SilentShield® sound absorption. Ease of use is also a priority here: The sink’s basin features three graduated ledges so that you can place accessories at the height that works best for you. With sizes ranging from 23” for a scullery or bar area to 44” for grander spaces, this sink is the perfect marriage of form and function.

If a farmhouse style sink is more your style, the Riverby® sink, by Kohler is an excellent option. Inspired by professional chefs and designed around real-life routines, Riverby® streamlines your kitchen tasks with accessories that make prepping, cooking, and cleaning a breeze. Crafted from enameled cast iron, this sink resists chipping, cracking, or burning for years of beauty and reliable performance.

Innovative Wine Storage

Why go out for drinks when you can stay in? Monogram’s 30 inch Fully Integrated Wine Sommelier makes it easy to enjoy a glass of vino—red, white, sparkling, you name it—from the comfort of your own home. This temperature-controlled fridge is built to suit your every need. A convertible lower drawer can serve as a fridge, freezer, or wine reserve by the touch of a button and only takes 24 hours to convert. The unit also has a separate drawer which includes a removable ice bin, serving all your entertaining needs this holiday season. Oh, and there’s no need to pare down your collection any time soon; the refrigerator offers storage space for 10 bottles in total.

Touchless Faucet

A touch-free faucet lets you avoid the mess and spread of bacteria while also conserving water and energy. The Tone® faucet by Kohler is available in six different finishes, ranging from Vibrant Stainless to a two-tone brass and matte black option, this faucet pays homage to mid-century modern style and is perfectly minimalistic yet stylish. The faucet can be turned on and off with the wave of your hand (or a kitchen object!) and features a three-function sprayhead.

Five-in-One Oven

Efficiency at its finest. Why settle for a regular oven when you can have five-in-one? The Monogram 30" Five in One Wall Oven with 240V Advantium® Technology can be used as a convection oven, toaster oven, warming/proofing oven, precision cook oven, and microwave. If you’re a home cook whose kitchen is in need of a major upgrade, this piece is calling your name. Appearing nice and sleek yet offering plenty of interior space, the oven is a major winner, featuring a 16 inch turntable inside to accommodate multiple dishes. Short on time? You can even program one of the oven’s 175 pre-set food selections—or add up to 30 custom recipes of your own.

Firepower without the Flame

The Monogram 30" Hearth Oven is designed to replicate the high-heat performance of a wood-fired brick oven so that you can whip up some delectable dishes from the comfort of your kitchen. Choose from a selection of preset cooking options (whether you’d like to indulge in some Detroit-style pizza or porterhouse steak is up to you), all while enjoying how seamlessly this stainless steel oven will fit into your existing kitchen.
