How Would You Design Your Dream Kitchen?

Want to show off your design druthers? Then head over to Sunset magazine's Dream Kitchen of the West digital design program, and vote for what you love. Do you prefer bamboo floors? Large central islands? Open shelving? Tell Sunset what your dream kitchen looks like by voting online.

“We wanted to come up with a 21st century take on our original Idea House concept,” said Katie Tamony, Sunset’s editor-in-chief. “The Dream Kitchen of the West is our Idea House 2.0.”

To find out more about the Dream Kitchen,


Each week for 10 weeks, new sponsor products, kitchen finishes, features, and colors will be presented on the website for an online vote. The completed kitchen will be revealed the week of June 1 on Sunset's website, and will be featured in the October issue of Sunset magazine. Oh, and you can enter the Dream Kitchen sweepstakes as well, which gives you the opportunity to win design plans and $10,000 for your own kitchen.

Award-winning New York- and San Francisco-based home and restaurant architect and designer, Cass Calder Smith, is directing the design of the Dream Kitchen by providing a selection of floorplans, kitchen features, and design inspiration. The kitchen, which is located in a single-family home in the Rose Garden section of San Jose, CA, will be built by DeMattei Construction.

What features would you want in your dream kitchen?

I would have a single basin sink w/ a built in drain board on the counter. And no lower cabinets, all drawers beneath the counter. And an industrial gas range w/ a griddle and grill in the middle.

2 ovens! That's a must. I'd really love a 50s diner vibe with black & white, stainless steel, and a formica table but there's no way I'll get that because my husband hates the look. Also, I'd want a kitchen computer, a vent that blows the cooking smell outside, super-cool organized cabinets, a soda fountain, a book shelf, an appliance garage, and a big gas stove with a grill in the middle. There's more but I think you get the picture.

Mine would come with a chef so I'd never have to cook!

Mine would definitely be quite big with lots of windows and skylights. I love natural light and can never get enough of it. I would also consider eco-friendly and reusable materials as well as very energy efficient appliances.

My dream kitchen would be huge with lots of counterspace, stainless steel everything and have 2 dishwashers (because sometimes one is not just enough! lol). There are lots of little details that I would want as well.

There are so many things I would do! I'd want kind of a contemporary/earthy vibe with a lot of natural woods and very open. :)
