Building a Luxury Kitchen: 4 Surfaces to Make your Kitchen Shine

Houses can be successfully sold on the basis of a beautiful and functional kitchen. More and more of us are centring our lives at home on the kitchen, and with modern open plan living kitchens are on display. For this reason, more of us are leaning more towards installing a luxury kitchen when it’s time to revamp or renovate our homes.

What We Call a Luxury Kitchen?

A luxury kitchen combines top quality materials with superior design for function and aesthetic appeal. It incorporates outstanding surfaces, top shelf appliances, leading edge technology, and premium lighting.

A luxury kitchen will include most of the following elements:

  • Well-planned spaces – interior design to maximise and enhance storage, functionality, flow, and entertaining;
  • Energy efficiency – including eco-friendly natural and electric lighting, insulation, water saving taps, eco-friendly water heating;
  • Newest technologies and clever home elements;
  • High end, attractive and energy efficient appliances;
  • Architectural detailing to flow into other areas of the home, especially with open plan living;
  • Large windows to bring the outdoors in;
  • High end materials and finishes – from the cabinetry doors to splashbacks; bench tops to floors, and even feature walls;
  • Premium light – a light filled space looks larger and brighter, and brings up the best in the kitchen interior.
