Spicing up dinner time with a few zesty recipes might be a bit more fun in a new luxury kitchen. After all, who wouldn’t enjoy a kitchen facelift that incorporates deluxe granite or natural quartz countertops, custom wood cabinets, and stainless steel appliances? The kitchen is one of the most visited rooms in a home, and as such, it’s a good investment to renovate it with modern upgrades that ooze with style, quality, and convenience. After all, there’s nothing quite like cooking in a luxury kitchen.
Westside Remodeling recommends the following strategies you can take to upgrade your kitchen from ordinary to luxurious:
While many homeowners associate cherry wood as the popular choice for a new luxury kitchen, today’s options for customized cabinetry are expanding to include other wood species, such as walnut and quarter sawn oak. Painted finishes, especially white and gray, are on the rise. Current design trends for cabinets incorporate clean lines with contrasting textures and hidden storage options to make cooking more convenient. More than one wood species or wood finish is often blended together in the same kitchen, or metal accent doors are combined with wood doors. Typically, you’ll want to choose a style in keeping with the general décor of the rest of your home. And don’t be afraid to ask your designer how to make your kitchen even more inviting by adding accents or conversation pieces to draw in your guests.
Granite and quartz are very elegant choices for countertops. Quartz is coming on strong as manufacturers continue to create fabulous new looks that set your kitchen apart from the rest. This material is even more durable than granite and easier to clean. Another glamorous option is a solid wood countertop. Again, the trend is to mix textures within one kitchen—perhaps wood on the island and quartz on the rest of the countertops.
Stainless steel continues to offer a sleek, luxurious look that brightens the kitchen’s appearance. New trends for appliance styling include white and black glass exteriors that offer a sleek, minimalist appearance that is also easy to clean. Upgrading your oven to one that offers steam/convection cooking, or purchasing an induction cooktop, or perhaps a smart phone enabled gas range provides you with some of the amazing conveniences that help to make cooking a luxury.
Tile and hardwoods offer excellent choices for deluxe flooring that stands up to lots of traffic, while also providing a stylish base for your kitchen table and chairs. Your options are a bit more generous than in past years, since today’s porcelain tile can convincingly mimic wood or stone. Beautiful exotic hardwoods and hardwoods with textures, such as hand-scraped finishes, add glamour to your kitchen.
Upgrading your kitchen’s cabinetry, countertops, appliances, flooring, walls, and lighting can transform a dull kitchen to one with the elegance of a fine restaurant. Giving your kitchen a luxurious facelift that encourages you to try out gourmet recipes for your dining pleasure is a great idea, since it also increases the market value of your property. If you are working with a really outdated kitchen, you may want to overhaul the entire room with a quality renovation.”
