Luxury Kitchen Design Ideas

Luxury Kitchen Design - coffered ceilingThe kitchen, if you truly think about it, is without a doubt the most valuable room in your home. From the time and energy that is spent inside the kitchen preparing meals three times per day to the actual cost of cabinetry and appliances, it is definitely safe to say that you should always be thinking about how you can protect your investment. Some luxury kitchen design ideas include high-end cabinetry and finishings– and the best way to make sure that your kitchen remodel lasts a lifetime is to make the investment in the first place. With kitchen design, you get what you pay for. Let’s take a closer look at what it means to pay attention to details so that you can get the most out of your investment in your kitchen.

Luxury Kitchen Design Idea #1: Ceilings

Your kitchen ceiling is not just a structure. If you think about it, your ceiling can be just as important as the rest of the design of your kitchen. Consider a coffered ceiling, a dramatic architectural style that provides your ceiling with a waffle grid-like structure where panels are sunken in and beautifully accented with molding or color – an excellent contender among many luxury kitchen design ideas.

Luxury Kitchen Design Idea #2: Counters and Hoods

If you are having trouble coming up with your own design ideas, know that you can always go the custom route. Every kitchen needs a hood over the cooktop for filtration and ventilation, but yours can be customized and even made of wood. Custom options include storage for cooking oils and built in spaces for spices where the hood connects to the counter.

Consider, too, your countertops. If your kitchen has an island, it is often built up and thicker than the perimeter countertops, but thicker countertop edges for all your counters can be wonderful when considering luxury design. Edge details on counter perimeter tops can also be easily customized. Options include a simple square design with detail specific to the island or a variety of customizable alternatives. Contemporary kitchen design lends itself well to this kind of customization.

Luxury Kitchen Design Idea #3: The Finishing Touches

Finally, of course, there are the additions that come last but are as important as any other aspect of your kitchen. When lighting your kitchen, you can consider anything from 5-inch recessed LED cans with pendants to chandeliers. Under cabinet LED lighting is an excellent choice as well, and lighting inside the cabinets themselves can be enormously impacting for displaying colorful items that add the wow factor to your unique and luxurious kitchen.

Decorative moldings add dimension and interest to the kitchen. Crown moldings can be detailed and ornate or cleaner and simpler, depending on your overall kitchen design.

Ultimately, you can also create spaces for built-in appliances in your new kitchen design – such as coffee or cappuccino makers or wine coolers. Wood paneling is a nice customization on the front of your appliances; refrigerator drawers, warming drawers, fridge or dishwasher.
