Expert Tips For Designing a Luxury Kitchen
Perhaps your kitchen is looking a little tired and you’ve decided to replace it with something new and special. What you can do is turn it into a luxury kitchen that speaks volumes for your personal taste and style. You can create the effects of a luxury kitchen without having a massive budget, it’s simply a case of shopping more carefully.
Of course, you’ll need to start at the beginning, looking through various interior design magazines both in print and online. This should give you an idea of what you like and how you’ll want your kitchen to look. You can take tips from a variety of different designs, that way you can create a mix of different styles that have caught your eye to form one unique luxury kitchen.
You may want a countertop, a centre piece for your kitchen where you can cook, prepare food and even eat at if you don’t want to use a separate eating area. Your surface can be anything from marble to quartz and it will largely depend on your budget and how much you’re willing to spend. Always finish off a surface with protective coating so your surface will be able to withstand hot pans and plates, and that way it’ll last longer.
Your cabinets will need a luxury feel and you’re going to go for something that suits your personal style naturally. That may be either classic or contemporary. A darker wood is fashionable right now with open shelving, but fashions change, so if you really want to keep your kitchen style up with what’s bang on trend, change it very 5 years or so, if your budget allows.
Luxury Appliances For Luxury Kitchens
Your appliances will need to be updated as part of your luxury kitchen, so think about hobs and all the latest gadgets available, including induction cooking with ceramic hobs as opposed to coils, and add a really sophisticated touch to your kitchen. Think too about clever ventilation systems so you lose smoke and fumes from cooking, this could mean being able to discard the ugly ventilation hoods. Investing in state of the art appliances can save you money in the long-term because you could save on energy bills. And of course, they look great!
Don’t forget the kitchen flooring
Don’t let your floor let your kitchen down, it’s as important as the rest of the fixtures and fittings. Carpets and rugs aren’t really a great idea in the kitchen, for as well having the potential to get dirty quickly, they can also cause accidents. But there’s some exciting choices out there for flooring such as tiles, and they come in a variety of different patterns and colours. However, if you have a small budget, you could go for linoleum which is always a striking look. It’s much better made now than it was back in the 60s and there’s a huge variety of textures, patterns and colours to choose from, giving you the option of a luxury floor on a budget.
