7 Luxury Kitchen Ideas to Get you Cooking
Today’s luxury homes carry the luxury quotient through all the areas of a home and the kitchens are as luxurious as the rest of the house is. These kitchens are much more than having the latest appliances and large spaces – they call for exquisite detailing, use of rich colours and materials. Very importantly, a luxury kitchen also gives you choice and flexibility.
Some New Ideas
When you are designing a luxury kitchen, it’s about not being shackled by limitations. You should feel free to choose the kind of colour, finish and products you want. It is now becoming easier to procure unique & exotic materials and this gives you the opportunity to get creative with your selections. Here are some luxury kitchen ideas that will get you cooking:
Kitchen cabinets can be much more than wood veneer or fancy laminates. You can opt for unique styling and materials and use a combination of finishes. The idea is that your aesthetic preference should be satisfied. When you have the flexibility to choose from a range of products, you automatically get high quality at flexible pricing and to an extent, that is what luxury is about
In the same context, you will find that some high-end kitchen appliance brands provide a wide variety in design and functionality. You can find combination appliances in different sizes which add to the luxury aspect of your kitchen.
#3 Enjoyable Formal Space
There was a time when kitchens were strictly utilitarian rooms. Today, luxury homes have kitchens that use very high-grade, unique materials and finishes and have graceful lines. In short, this space becomes a very enjoyable formal space that you can actually live in. This reflects the personality of the people who live in that home, just as the rest of the areas in the house do
#4 Special Touches
This is probably one primary aspect that distinguishes a luxury kitchen from others. A luxury kitchen will have stunning finishes such as reflective mica chips incorporated into lacquer paint, exotic stone flooring, shimmering mosaic-tiled walls and barrel vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling tiling and more.
#5 Added Functionality
The latest trend in luxury kitchen design is to have 2 or more of just about everything and so it’s common to see kitchens with 2 sinks, 2 dishwashers, 2 refrigerators etc. If expansive square footage is available, some luxury homes also have 2 kitchens. A professional and less-visible kitchen which can endure all the food preparation and heavy-duty cooking that works in tandem with a “showcase” kitchen that is used for lighter cooking & entertainment.
#6 Allows for Healthier Eating Habits
As people consciously change their eating habits and opt for healthier cooking, it also changes the appliances they choose. The general layout of the kitchen also undergoes a change. Larger ranges & cook-tops are popular as larger cooking surfaces are required to steam fresh grains and veggies.
Similarly, wall ovens that have a steaming capability are being installed in luxury kitchens. Though many kitchens have standard gas cook tops with a grill and fryer, a Teppanyaki opens up a range of cooking options. More efficient refrigeration is being added to accommodate fresh foods
#7 Eco-Friendly Concepts
A luxury kitchen offers eco-friendly contemporary living. Today, everyone’s lives are filed with visual and audible noise and when they come home they want spaces that are quiet, calm and low-maintenance. This is why luxury kitchens always have low-maintenance features such as high gloss lacquer, minimalist cabinet styles, engineered quartz stones, such as Caesarstone/Silestone- these are durable and easy to maintain. Glass or stone backsplashes help reduce those grout lines and are easy to clean.
Current day luxury kitchens are a lot about eco-friendly living. Using cabinetry, materials and appliances that promote a very healthy and sustainable environment is vital. LED lighting is being used versus task lighting. The former allows greater energy-efficiency and helps maintain the indoor temperatures at more comfortable levels.
In simple words, the definition of a luxury kitchen has undergone a sea-change. It’s no longer based only on price tags- a luxury kitchen must be easy to use and a pleasure to work in and should be a reflection of your personality.
