It is no secret that the kitchen is the heart of any home. It is not only the space where delicious family meals are lovingly prepared but also a place for socializing. While a luxury kitchen makeover is considered to be a major investment, it is one that will not only bring you joy for many years to come but will also increase your property value. Here are a few things to keep in mind when giving your kitchen a luxury makeover.
The Layout is Everything!
Getting your kitchen layout just right is one of the most important components of your luxury kitchen renovation.Whether your kitchen is large and sprawling or relatively small, a carefully-planned layout will help you get the most out of your available space. When planning your layout it is important to remember that there is a lot more to a functional layout than just furniture and appliance placement. Keep in mind that there should be a comfortable flow from one zone to the next. Other important considerations include the height of counters and large appliances and making sure that there is enough room to comfortably move around in. If you do not have confidence in designing your luxury kitchen layout yourself, consider investing in the services of a professional remodeler.
Pick High-end Appliances
When picking the appliances for your new luxury kitchen, remember to consider the brand, aesthetics, and functions. You also need to take the size of your bigger appliances into consideration as they will have to be included in your initial layout plans. While your budget will ultimately determine how much you can spend on your appliances, you definitely do not want cheap-looking appliances of questionable quality in your luxury kitchen. A smart fridge that can send out an alert if any of its contents is about to expire is an asset to any upmarket kitchen alongside a professional stove. When choosing a washing machine, opt for one that will meet all your personal needs. Ask yourself how often you will be doing laundry, what your laundry typically consists of, and also whether a front loader or top loader will suit you best. Whether you’re planning on washing shoes in your washing machine or softer items made of linen, you’d want to invest in a quality appliance.
Don’t Skimp on the Finishes
Aesthetically-appealing finishes are an absolute-must in a luxury kitchen. As the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house it is important that your finishes not only look good, but are durable as well. Choose countertops and other materials that will boost both the appearance and functionality of your kitchen. Industrial finishes are once again popular this year with stone and cement also ranking high on the list of top luxury choices. When it comes to work surfaces, quartz and marble are both superb choices. Other popular trends to consider for your luxury kitchen makeover include wood flooring, contemporary tiled backsplashes, smoked glass cabinet doors, and mat metallic cabinet handles and light fixtures.
Many homeowners dream of having a luxury kitchen at their disposal. By knowing what a large-scale remodel entails, you can ensure that your luxury kitchen makeover is as swift and simple as possible.
