When it comes to kitchens, beauty and efficiency have joined forces to create a partnership of style and function. The kitchen is where we cook and enjoy moments with friends and family, and it always seems to be a room of constant convening. It makes sense that the trend has shifted towards a kitchen that is as enjoyable to look at, as it is functional. Whether you're a frequent entertainer or just a regular home chef for the family, having the most appropriate fixtures in your kitchen to complete your regular tasks is essential. "Today's sinks and faucets are designed to help alleviate strenuous movements that can cause temporary or permanent damage to our bodies," says Donna Church of Kohler Canada. "Constantly lifting heavy pots of water from the sink to the stove isn't easy on our wrists. People are doing more in the kitchen and require products that reduce strain and make it easier and more enjoyable to cook." Making the kitchen a more ergonomically efficient environment can be relatively easy with a few upgrades. Installing a pot filler, like the HiRise pot filler from Kohler that attaches to the wall beside your stove, eliminates the need for carrying heavy pots from the sink to the stove. You no longer have to fight with those pesky pots and pans either. When it comes to clean-up time, Kohler has been creative with its Smart Divide design for kitchen sinks. The divider is only 4.5 inches high, making it easier to clean and rinse pots because the whole pot actually

fits in the sink with the handle being able to extend across instead of fitting awkwardly in the basin. Fill the sink up the whole way to do a load of dishes, or fill it up part way for rinsing before the dishwasher. Either way will be less of a struggle. Today's functional fixtures and faucets are beautifully designed so there's no sacrificing performance for style. The ideal kitchen relationship has been created with the meeting of style and function, making your kitchen beautiful and more enjoyable. More information is available online at www.kohler.com.
