The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where meals are prepared and shared and where friends and family gather. From fancy to functional and everything in between, there are kitchen designs for every budget and style. For many people who love to cook and entertain, having a beautiful, luxurious kitchen is a dream.
Whether you’re building a new kitchen, renovating an existing space or simply looking to add features that improve functionality and style, there are many different ways to create a luxury kitchen that you’ll love to use.
Update your cabinets
Whether you choose to purchase and install new cabinets or reface your existing cabinets, don’t settle for what seems easiest; find the cabinets of your dreams. While white or dark wood are the classic choices, colored cabinetry is a trendy pick these days.
Looking for some extra luxury in your cabinets? Add some extra features like built-in spice racks or pull out drawers.
Replace your countertops
If your countertops feel simple or outdated, changing them is easier than you think. Some of the most popular material choices include granite, marble, concrete and quartz.
If you’re replacing your countertops, it might also be a good time to replace your kitchen sink. A popular style these days is the apron front sink.
Add a backsplash
Another easy way to enhance the beauty of your kitchen is by adding a backsplash. A backsplash in a key area, like behind the stove, in not only functional but also adds visual interest to your cooking space. There are so many options, including tiles and glass mosaics that can be combined to create almost any pattern.
Replace your appliances
Nothing improves a kitchen’s appearance or functionality like high-end, stainless steel appliances. Spring for a microwave drawer, refrigerator with built-in coffee maker or professional-grade stoves and see what you’ve been missing. If you have room, you could consider adding a wine refrigerator.
Replace your faucets
Upgrading your sink faucet is a small change with big impact. New fixtures from top brands like Kohler and Delta won’t break your budget but certainly will boost your sink’s appearance and efficiency. Consider adding a pot filler near your stove as well.
