Quintessential, contemporary kitchen designs inspire a life of luxury
A gourmet kitchen is the focal point in contemporary home designs. It’s where all the magic happens, where laughs and recipes are shared between generations and memories are made to last a lifetime. With quality materials, state-of-the-art appliances, proper lighting and an alluring design that seamlessly blends functional style, tasteful kitchen designs cultivate the perfect place to prepare a decadent masterpiece. Luxury kitchens are built to reflect the appeal of the home and offer an extraordinary space for family, friends, amateur chefs and culinary connoisseurs alike.
An island centerpiece
An essential feature, a spectacular kitchen island makes a statement that transforms the entire feel of the room. Mix marble and metal for a captivating countertop, add additional seating, create various food prep and stovetop zones or mesmerize your friends and family with a stunning waterfall design. The perfect blend of chic style and performance, kitchen islands are a great way to maximize space and are as adaptable as they are aesthetically pleasing.
Versatile storage space
A necessity for any home chef, a thoroughly arranged kitchen setup is the key to foodie success. Elevated food storage adds depth, dimension and versatility to any home and makes crafting creative cuisine in your state-of-the-art kitchen easier with enhanced storage and maximum organization. Walk-in pantries boast the ultimate structural system while built-in shelving presents open wall space for quick categorization of spices, tools, decor and more. Hidden pantries offer pullout shelves for discrete, orderly placement, custom-designed cabinets showcase chic spaces for displaying your finest flatware and china and separate butler’s pantries deliver the ideal spot for food prep, a bar area and extra storage.
When it comes to the ultimate gourmet setup, it’s all about the extra features. Start with upscale lighting and unique fixtures that illuminate the stunning kitchen design. Elevate your basic liquor cabinet with home bars and wine cellars, luxury staples that are perfect for entertaining and showing off your mixology skills. Add a built-in coffee/espresso maker for a convenient gourmet beverage. Consider a breakfast nook for a charming extension of the kitchen that creates an intimate space ideal for both dining and relaxation. It’s a practical addition that offers more space for hosting gatherings or a cozy and comfortable area for connecting at the end of a long day.
Perfect for summer: Outdoor kitchens
Discover paradise in your own backyard with an outdoor kitchen that transforms your space into a natural oasis for alfresco dining, relaxation, fun and entertainment. Choose from extras such as a fire pit for cozy nights under the stars, a pizza oven for a homemade slice of Italy, a TV lounge for at-home tailgating, a bar to create refreshing craft cocktails, a movie screening area for family fun or a top-of-the-line cooktop to unleash your inner grill master. Your outdoor living space will never be the same.
