Luxury Kitchen Design
Creating a luxury kitchen requires you to set your sights high. And, once all the design elements come together, you will be left with space you will never want to leave.
As technology and design innovations continue to evolve so, too, will the idea of what defines a luxury kitchen. But no matter how many changes are in store, one thing’s for sure: the luxury kitchen has become central to a contemporary lifestyle.
luxury kitchen exudes style, sophistication, prosperity and success. Being one of the most heavily used rooms in a house it is hardly surprising that more and more people are opting to enhance their home with the installation of a luxury kitchen.
Anyone who has dabbled in design knows that there are certain elements that are key to specific designs. This same concept holds true for luxury designs, as well. If you want a luxury kitchen, then you need to be sure that it includes the following elements:
- Architectural details.
- Selection of proper materials.
While it is not always the case, many luxuriously-designed kitchens also have energy conservation and other green elements added into the mix, too. If you are keen to give your property the pampering it deserves, there is no better place to start than the kitchen. But what exactly does a luxury, contemporary kitchen include? Some essential features of a luxury kitchen include the following:
- Stone Back-splash
- Frame-less design cabinets and storage space
- Quality and stylish lighting
- Striking and durable work surfaces
Stone Slab Back-splash
A current trend among luxury kitchen designers is using a stone or quartz slab as a back-splash. If you’ve never seen one in person then trust me, it’s a beautiful look. Particularly if the stone is a marble. Using quartz in the kitchen is very popular at the moment since most high-end kitchen designs are using tons of gray and white.
Frame-less design cabinets and storage space
There is a growing emphasis on modern luxury kitchens to be built with a frame-less design.
Designs such as the ‘face-frame system’ are outdated, likewise so are clunky cabinet hinges all of which will not conjure up feelings of luxury and sophistication. Opting for a frame-less design kitchen will create a kitchen that oozes luxury and style. Not only does a frameless designed kitchen look stylish, sophisticated, and luxurious, but it is significantly more practical, providing up to 15% more cabinet volume.
Quality and stylish lighting
From grand chandeliers hanging from the ceiling crafting a stately ambiance to contemporary wall sconces providing a modern quirk to the walls of a kitchen, to spotlights illuminating a defined area providing definition and practicality, the lighting in a luxury kitchen is of vital importance.
There are literally hundreds of kitchen lighting designs you could choose from when designing a luxury kitchen. Remember splendor is the key here though, so the more flamboyant the design, the better.
Striking and durable work surfaces
Choosing the material of your worktops is of vital importance to create a luxury kitchen which, most importantly, is strong and durable and will look as new in five years’ time as it does today!
One of the most luxurious materials available for kitchen worktops and surfaces is Granite. Granite kitchen worktops are made from beautiful natural stone that has been volcanically formed over centuries to give a striking and luxurious look and feel. Granite is also one of the most durable materials that will withhold the inevitable knocks, scrapes, and scratches a kitchen is inevitably subjected to over the years. Work surfaces are undoubtedly one of the most noticeable features of a kitchen and are capable of shaping the difference between a luxury kitchen and a standard, run-of-the-mill one.
Can something be replicated 1000’s of times still be considered a luxury. Luxury is exclusive, hard to attain, and of course highly very desired.
Despite considerable research in luxury cabinetry branding, no widely accepted definition of “luxury brand” exists. Meaning Not everyone agrees that what defines luxury in today’s current market these days…. Luxury can be inclusive and exclusive. Inspirational or attainable. Some people believe if it’s attainable and looks expensive, it’s a luxury. That is not the case.
