If you are planning a full kitchen remodelling project for your Mississauga home and budget isn’t a concern, then this pair is for you!
As more homeowners eat healthier by cooking at home, there’s an increasing emphasis on luxurious and spacious kitchens that let you cook meals in a functional and efficient space.
And while “luxurious” might imply how the space will look, your kitchen’s overall design will vary depending on your preferences. So, whether you want a Scandinavian or mid-century modern kitchen, you can achieve a high-end appearance.
Here are some features to consider adding to your kitchen remodelling project. They will help create a space that oozes style and extravagance while also being practical.
Tips for a Successful Luxury Kitchen Renovation
What elements define a luxury kitchen? Let’s look at some of the options for a successful kitchen remodel.
1. Plan a Big Kitchen Island
This is a must-have that enhances both the functionality and style of your luxury kitchen. You can choose from a wide range of kitchen island styles, designs, and sizes, depending on the size of the space you are dealing with. But remember to pick something that looks proportionate with the space as you don’t want to overwhelm your layout. On the other hand, you don’t want a small island that gets lost in a huge kitchen and isn’t necessarily functional.
To successfully achieve an efficient kitchen island, it’s vital for homeowners to determine how they will be using it. For instance, do you want to prepare meals on it while chatting with friends and family? Then it’s best to have the cooktop installed on the island. Or if you’re looking to keep an eye on your children or pets while preparing food before you cook, it’s better to have a sink on it. If your kitchen allows it, consider having two islands: one focused on dining and entertaining while the other can be used for prep.
2. Add Built-In Storage
A kitchen can’t feel luxurious if the countertops (and other storage areas, like open shelves) are so cluttered that you can never find what you’re looking for, Plus, how can you use the space efficiently if things are scattered all over?
In order to create a kitchen that is deemed luxurious, you need clever storage solutions. The cleaner the space, the better you will be able to work in it and the more luxurious and spacious it will feel.
Depending on the available space, as well as your requirements and preferences, you could add kitchen cabinet shelves that can be folded or pulled out into the kitchen area when needed. Also, think of installing custom kitchen cabinets in smaller areas or ones that have a unique shape and/or size. Open shelving units, meanwhile, can add a deluxe appeal to the entire space.
3. Carefully Choose the Countertop
Your kitchen countertop should be chosen just as carefully as you would the cabinets as it can easily become the focal point that makes or breaks the overall design.
However, if you are indecisive and cannot choose from the wide range of options available, look for high-performance alternatives that complement the look and feel of your space.
One of the most coveted countertop materials is quartz. It can be customized to mimic the appearance of any surface, including natural stone, and is available at a fraction of the cost. Plus, its manufacturing process allows quartz to be a more durable option than natural stone alternatives. Most of the latter, such as granite and marble, need to be sealed periodically to ensure they maintain their shine and durability. However, this isn’t the case with quartz countertops as the sealant is applied during the manufacturing process. This tends to last as long as the countertop, even with heavy use.
But that isn’t to say that natural stone alternatives should be avoided. You can certainly choose granite countertops for their beauty and durability. And, if you are ready to put in the time to maintain them, you can’t go wrong with this option. Plus, no two slabs of granite are alike so you don’t need to worry about someone else having the same countertop.
Do you want your kitchen remodelling project to be successful? Do you want to make sure you enjoy the space for years to come while enhancing your home’s overall style? Then follow these simple tips. They will allow the space to become the centre of your household, where you host family dinners, entertain, serve cocktails, and share quiet meals with loved ones. But employ experienced kitchen designers and contractors to ensure you get a luxurious and truly bespoke kitchen that makes the most of your investment.
