Menlo Park, CA –Sunset Magazine (http://www.sunset.com/), the premier guide to life in the West, today announced the launch of the first Dream Kitchen of the West digital design program (www.sunset.com/dreamkitchen), which gives everyone the opportunity to help design the ultimate kitchen by voting online. Each week for ten weeks, new sponsor products, kitchen finishes, features and colors will be presented on the website for an online vote. The completed kitchen, which will incorporate the winners of each vote, will be revealed the week of June 1 on Sunset.com and will be featured in the October issue of Sunset Magazine.
Award-winning New York and San Francisco-based home and restaurant architect and designer, Cass Calder Smith, is spearheading the direction of the Dream Kitchen, providing a selection of floorplans, kitchen features, and design inspiration.

The Dream Kitchen of the West sponsors include GE Monogram (appliances), Teragren (counters), Kohler (plumbing), Armstrong (flooring), and Benjamin-Moore (paint).
