Anthony Carrino's Kitchen Design Tips
The Cousins Undercover star tells HGTV Magazine how to get your kitchen camera-ready, even if you aren’t on TV.
- Invest in the best appliances you can afford. Although most people don’t need the bells and whistles a pro chef would, features such as convection cooking capabilities make life in the kitchen easier.
- Design around a focal point. Go for a bold color with your counters or backsplash—not both. “John and I put pink counters in one house, and they looked awesome,” Anthony says. “But we kept the backsplash neutral to balance them out.”
- Try under-cabinet lights. They’re handy when you’re using your counters—plus they can add ambiance when you entertain.
- Soft-close hinges are a must. If you want to reduce wear and tear on cabinets, it’s worth springing for hinges that make doors close slowly and quietly. You can even retrofit many old cabinets with them.
