When it comes to designing a custom kitchen, the sky's the limit. From the cabinets to the floors, every detail is key to creating a luxurious kitchen with aesthetic appeal yet ultimate functionality. To set you off on the right path, here are 5 luxury kitchen must haves that are making waves:
There's nothing more luxurious than perfectly organized kitchen cabinets. Whether you like to display your kitchen ware and fare or you prefer a clean slate of cabinets, custom kitchen cabinets are the base of any solid kitchen. With custom cabinets, you can choose the materials, finishes, and aesthetic. For inspiration, head over to Poggenpohl, the oldest kitchen brand in the world.
For buyers who have embraced the art of cuisine, no kitchen is complete without a professional gas range. Opt for something along the lines of a gas range with stacked burners, a convection oven, and whatever add-ons you please. No need to fret if you're not cooking inclined. An induction cooktop takes the science out of it and provides seamless heat options.
Move aside granite and marble. The rustic yet refined trend of exotic wood countertops is on the rise. When looking for inspiration, think zebra wood and don't be shy of embracing the wood's natural contours. This luxury kitchen feature is not only visually appealing, but also extremely practical thanks to the wood's extra strong finish.
Praised for their convenience, a double wall oven is a treat to have in the kitchen. Because it's mounted higher on the wall, it eliminates any need to duck down and check on your dinner. Taking inspiration from the swinging doors that lead to many kitchens, some of these appliances even feature French doors on the double wall oven.
In a recent blog post, we discussed the features that luxury buyers are looking for in their homes. One such feature was an eco factor to the design and materials. Eco-friendly flooring is not only immaculate, but it's sustainable. And sustainability doesn't have to stop there. Eco-friendly design options can be found for other parts of the kitchen, including recycled metal and glass back splashes.
