Spicing up dinner time with a few zesty recipes might be a bit more fun in a new gourmet kitchen. After all, who wouldn’t enjoy a kitchen facelift that incorporates deluxe granite flooring, solid 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 gourmet kitchen. Here’s a look at a few strategies you can take to upgrade your kitchen from ordinary to gourmet.
While many homeowners associate solid cherry wood with a gourmet kitchen, your choices for customized cabinetry include, maple, birch, oak, and laminate. Styles include stained, distressed, pickled, and painted. Typically, you’ll want to choose a style in keeping with the general décor of your home. However, if your kitchen is separated from the rest of the house, your options are open ended.
Stainless steel offers a sleek, luxurious look that brightens the kitchen’s appearance. Upgrading your oven, refrigerator, sink, microwave, and dishwasher to oversized appliances that feature everything from warming drawers in the double ovens to ice makers in a supersized Sub-Zero refrigerator provides you with all of the conveniences of gourmet cooking.
Granite and hard woods offer excellent choices for deluxe flooring that stands up to lots of traffic, while also providing an elegant base for your kitchen table and chairs. However, your options are a bit more generous than that and you can choose travertine, sandstone, marble, and mosaic flooring for an elegant look.
Upgrading the kitchen’s flooring, walls, appliances, cabinetry, 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 If you are working with a really outdated kitchen, you may want to overhaul the entire room with a quality renovation.
