Luxury Kitchen Must Have’s

No Comments

Everyone says the heart of a home is the kitchen which I believe in 200%! Family’s gather to socialize during get togethers, holiday gatherings but really the kitchen is the soul of the home.  Recently building a new home myself we focused the majority of our upgraded options on the kitchen. Honestly, that is where I spend the majority of my time anyway being a stay at home mother of two small children so I wanted to make sure there was plenty of space to cook and have room for small children to be around. We added a large Island, granite countertops, double oven, large double basin sink, tile backsplash and stainless steel gas appliances. We did our research, went to model homes to see the newest trends, and spoke to kitchen designers to see what popular selling points of a house were if we eventually sell. So when looking to purchase a new luxury home you will want your kitchen to be adequate for not only yourself but perhaps a professional chef that may be hired to help with holiday gathers or dinner parties. Bob Vila, remodel guru suggests these must haves in all luxury kitchens:

  • Wall Ovens: sleek design, space saving and innovative
  • Wood Counters is the newest trend and unique to every kitchen
  • Build in Fridge: flush with cabinets and built-in panels to match cabinets
  • Large Eat-In Islands
  • Built in Coffee Bar
  • Walk-in Pantry: focus on simplicity, organization, and location
  • Use high-quality materials
  • Leading edge technology for kitchen gadgets such as Dacor Discovery Wine Station or Blendtec Food Processor. Options are endless in this department!

Despite what the popular trend is when creating designs for your kitchen, build what is functional for you as a family and what you envision. You can have endless options and expensive gadgets but will you ever use the $10,000 vegetable fridge or $20,000 espresso machine? Everyone has different tastes in style and options they will suggest is a “must” but it boils down to what you need to have for a functional kitchen. But cooking with love is all that really matters and meals with memories are made in the kitchen
