Layout is key! Not only should your kitchen have ample space to move around, but open concepts that provide plenty of space for yourself, as well as guests while preparing meals is vital in the overall enjoyment of a luxury kitchen. Likewise, having the kitchen open to a living space not only allows the kitchen to feel bigger and brighter, but creates ample space for entertaining.
Trash & Recycling
Nobody wants to see a trash can or recycling bin shoved into the corner of a kitchen. Instead having your trash and recycling bins concealed within a pull-out cabinet drawer creates a much more visually appealing way of hiding the trash and allowing your kitchen to always look clean and tidy.
When buying a luxury home, flooring plays a huge role, especially in high traffic areas such as the kitchen. While the flooring may look nice and luxurious at first glance, you want to ensure that the flooring is highly durable, waterproof, and able to withstand heavy foot traffic, water/food spills, etc.
Not only will the brand and style of fridge be important in any kitchen, but the way the fridge fits into the kitchen is also key. A luxury kitchen should boast a seamlessly placed fridge ensuring that there is no space between the fridge and cabinets and that the face of the cabinets sit perfectly flush with the doors of the fridge.
An oversized kitchen island creates ample space for food prep, storage, as well as dining and entertainment space and many argue is a staple in a luxury kitchen.
