A luxury kitchen can be a tricky thing to define on paper. This is because everybody has different definitions of their designs and concepts. For some, this can mean using exquisite, hand crafted materials, for others it’s elegant design, and for some people its enhanced functionality. But while there are many elements that come together to define a luxury kitchen, let’s take a look at four common ones.
Choice and Flexibility
A luxury kitchen gives you freedom from design limitations. Manufacturers and designers today offer more choice in design and size than ever before. They can offer you a vast choice of products, finishes, textures and colours. You can even get your kitchen custom designed to perfectly match your lifestyle.
No particular style is more common for a luxury kitchen than another, however some designs seem to naturally lend themselves more easily to a luxurious approach. Gallery kitchens, L-shaped kitchens and U-shaped kitchens are probably the best choices if you’re considering a luxury kitchen installation.
Enjoyable Formal Spaces
Since our family and friends always seem to gravitate towards the kitchen, it makes sense to want a design that is an enjoyable alternative to a more formal space like a dining room. This means having a kitchen that our family wants to live in as opposed to just a place to prepare food.
Luxury kitchens are often large and well planned to accommodate even the most spacious family. In addition to this they feature plenty of practical space and places to enjoy and entertain such as kitchen bars, informal dining areas or breakfast nooks.
Double The Functionality
The latest trends in luxury kitchens it to have double the number of everything. Two dishwashers, two sinks, two fridges etc. This is to allow both a less visible heavy duty style of kitchen for mass food preparation as well as a light more formal option for easy cooking and entertaining.
This not only allows a kitchen that is easy for multiple cooks to navigate, but also makes your life a lot easier. If you have children it makes keeping up with the cleaning a breeze. If you have a small family you’ll understand how many dirty dishes they can conjure up, and the benefits that having two dishwashers can offer.
Accommodate Healthier Eating and Living Habits
This not only means kitchen design is changing but appliances are getting smarter as well. Larger cook tops are becoming more popular because people need larger cooking areas to steam fresh veggies. At the same time, refrigeration spaces have become smaller and more intelligently designed as more people are enjoying the benefits of fresh food.
The times are changing and what used to be an area only used for preparing food has now become the hub of the home. More people than ever before and gravitating towards installing luxury kitchens. Sydney residents are now able to choose between several eco-friendly benefits such as energy efficient lighting and eco-friendly materials in the build which makes the kitchen functional and environmentally friendly.
