Interior Fittings, Kitchen Accessories Add Value:

When it comes to cabinet interiors, consumers want quality products that maximize storage and accessibility while adding value to the kitchen. Whether it's electronic controls that bring the cabinet contents out to the user, flexible shelving that can be adjusted based on how the space is used, soft-close features that enhance quality or upgraded finishes that add to the kitchen's aesthetic appeal, interior fittings continue to be a key part of making the kitchen work efficiently.

Kitchen accessories, too, remain a popular product category, and while the trophy kitchen may be a thing of the past, consumers still want upscale amenities that add a touch of warmth and luxury.

Below are some of the latest trends in kitchen accessories and interior fittings.

  • The trend toward elegant, sleek design extends to storage and interior fittings, with consumers seeking out clean and simple storage solutions that offer minimal fuss and maximum efficiency.
  • Accessibility is key, as consumers seek flexible storage products that will streamline and simplify their busy lives - without them having to climb, reach or crawl to get to cabinet contents.
  • With space at a premium, it's critical to maximize every available inch of space, which means storage solutions must get creative, whether it's with shelving that can be brought forward and down from high cabinets at the push of a button, swiveling circular drawer pivots, customized cutlery storage, spice drawers that make use of formerly "dead" space or classic lazy susans.
  • Popular finishes range from chrome to wood to glass, with warmer colors like champagne gaining ground.
  • Integrated soft-close, once viewed as a luxury, is now becoming expected, with more and more storage products integrating this key feature as standard.

Kitchen accessories that add a touch of warmth, such as floor warming systems, remain popular upgrades, while products that promote green living (built-in recycling stations, composting systems) are also hot choices right now.

Candy Cane Cookies

  • 1 box sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus additional for surface
  • Red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine sugar cookie mix, melted butter, egg, cream cheese, and flour; mix together to form dough. Separate dough into 2 equal portions and place in 2 different bowls. Add red food coloring gradually to 1 bowl of dough, kneading together until desired shade of red is created. To second bowl of uncolored dough, add peppermint extract and knead together. On a floured work surface, shape dough into balls and then roll each ball into 1/4-inch-wide ropes, each about 6 inches long. For each cookie, carefully twist some of the red and white ropes of dough together and shape into a candy cane. Spread candy canes out on cookie sheets and bake on the top shelf of the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool before serving.
