Interior Design: Kitchen Refrigerators and Graphic Wraps

Everyone knows that if you want to sell a house quickly you need to have an updated kitchen. But even for those of you who are not selling your home, holidays are a great test as to whether or not you need to update it for entertaining. It might occur to you when all 15 family members are trying to squeeze between you-the stove-the ovens-and the microwave, or it might occur when your refrigerator goes out for no reason at all. Either way, chances are you will definitely know by the end of the holiday season.

A great way to begin updating your kitchen without going all out is to pant it and replace the appliances. One of the most unique and affordable ideas out there is using graphic wraps on refrigerators (like the cars that have full advertisements on them). If you have a theme to your kitchen, or want a really neat and unique kitchen space, it's perfect!

Here are a few suggestions when renovating your kitchen:
  • Look for the Energy Star Seal: According to "All major home appliances must meet the Appliance Standards Program set by the US Department of Energy (DOE). ... Test results are printed on yellow EnergyGuide label, which manufacturers are required to display on many appliances. This label estimates how much energy the appliance uses, compares energy use of similar products, and lists approximate annual operating costs..."
  • Try to use either a theme (ex: French Country Kitchen) or neutral colors with stainless steel appliances. 
  • Install a water purification system
Because the kitchen tends to be the central hub of a house, you want to make sure it is welcoming, functional and stylish - but that it also goes with your house. Always do research on appliances, construction costs, and locate a real estate agent who can let you know what the market is doing in your area so you don't lose money in your renovation.

Here are some stylish refrigerators in gorgeous kitchens. Most of these refrigerators are from GE but browse online and look at your local stores to see a full assortment of what is available - get inspired!


Road Trip: A Real Luxury Supercar, the Zenvo ST1

The Zenvo ST1 is a brand new luxury supercar from Zenvo Automotive. Recently unveiled (December 15, 2009) at the Dubai International Motor Show 2009 the ST1 is already generating a lot of buzz.

So, what's under the hood of this Danish-designed supercar? The ST1 is a 6 speed manual, 7 liter V8, 1105 HP (no, i'm not joking), is turbocharged and supercharged, and has top speeds electronically controlled at 233 mph (375 km/h)....... this beauty slaps back if you touch.

It goes 0-100 in 3 seconds flat, is rear wheel drive, and apparently can cross Demark in 18 minutes. But if you want to play with this toy, hurry. There are only 15 being made and with the competition mounting expect to pay at least 850,000 Euros or about $1,122,000 dollars (and that isn't including import fees, registration, tags, etc).
