Almost every homemaker would look at ways to add affordable style to their kitchen, but what about those who want only the best… the ultimate luxury for their kitchen? Here are the latest trends in kitchen design and how you can add luxury to any kitchen.
Modern kitchens are functional, versatile and practical. They are a place where family and friends can gather and create. Stainless steel finishes continue to draw consumers, but a move towards natural materials gains momentum as new products are launched, engineered for practical use.
High-tech appliances have evolved to meet the changing trends for cooking and entertaining at home.
These are some of the trends that has made your old kitchen into new one:
Sinks and taps
As the saying goes…”Everything but the kitchen sink!” It might only be one element in a kitchen design, but fitting the right sink means everything at the end of the day. When installed in a separate scullery, the sink is not as important as one that is the feature in a kitchen.
A stand-out design with luxury taps will not only look good, but will add even more functionality to a well-planned design.
Handles and knobs
You will need pull – out drawers for pots and pans, easy access to the bin for kitchen waste, plus other accessories that make your kitchen functional and a pleasure to cook in.
When designing a kitchen many homeowners tend to forget the small details… handles and knobs. It’s these details that add a finishing touch to any kitchen. Soft-touch drawers are a popular choice for a streamlined kitchen design, but there’s no denying that handles and knobs add character and function to every kitchen.
Designing a kitchen with plenty of storage is a number one priority, unless you have a built-in pantry or scullery. You will need pull-out drawers for pots and pans, easy access to the bin for kitchen waste, plus other accessories that make your kitchen functional and a pleasure to cook in.
Discuss your storage requirements in detail with the kitchen installer, so that everything is covered before the installation begins.
Don’t settle for less than the best when lighting a kitchen. Layered lighting is essential in a room that caters for a wide range of activities at all times of the day.
Shop around for general, accent and task lighting that will enhance functionality and complement the design.
The trick to creating a luxurious dream kitchen is to keep it simple with a few select finishes that incorporate textures. You want a look that is modern and luxurious without being cluttered and over-the-top.
Let the design speak for itself and add a few extravagant touches to enhance the overall look and feel.
