Do you want to get your kitchen looking luxurious in no time at all, and without spending tons of money? Here are some features you should bring in for a luxury kitchen.
- Double ovens
These not only look beautiful in your kitchen, they give you the option of having a main oven for major cooking and a secondary oven for plate warming or additional baking. Here are some ideas from Which about the different types of oven.
- Dishwasher drawers
You can use dishwasher drawers in place of regular dishwashers, or in addition to the standard sized dishwashers. These appliances provide you with time and money efficient cleaning when you only need a few dishes washed.
- Island cooktops
With a kitchen cooktop, you get to enjoy countertop burners. If the cooktop is built into your kitchen island, you get to enjoy a generous work surface with room for storage too. You could consider getting a Kitchen Island cart.
- Commercial style range
Commercial-style appliances and features are common in luxury kitchens. The BTU output for commercial cookers is 3-4 times higher than for normal models. You therefore need to make sure you get cookware that can handle the heat, and that you can afford the bills!
- Pot filler
This is a rare feature that can go anywhere you can run a cold water line. It is mounted high enough to provide a flow of water to pots beneath.
- A coffee bar
This is basically a miniature kitchen that offers a refrigerator, microwave and most likely espresso machine.
- The on-counter garage
This will house all materials you use regularly but don’t want to be in view all of the time. This feature makes sure the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen isn’t blighted by a monstrosity of an appliance.
- Corner Storage
This is another feature that will help you maximise every bit of space in your kitchen. Revolving corner storage carousel can be really handy. Mike Taylor, of Mike Taylor Bespoke Kitchens, explains “space is the most important commodity in any kitchen. Where you put storage, and how you purpose different areas, can make or break the design of your kitchen. Corner storage units are a must for small kitchens, and work well in larger kitchens too.”
- Deep drawers
This will house your large cooking pots and pans.
10. Full extension drawers
This type of drawer makes it easier for you to get objects in and out of the drawer.
11. Divided storage
