Interior of beautiful, luxury kitchen

The kitchen: often called the heart of the home! It’s where you gather, you share, and you create. Durham Region residents know that a great kitchen really makes a difference.

And, when it comes to your kitchen, there are a few things that you can do to take it from a regular kitchen… to the luxury dream kitchen your friends and family will be jealous of! Or, well, they might just want to come over to your home a lot. Here are our top five luxury kitchen must-haves!

Top-Of-The-Line Appliances

One of the most expensive must-haves is one that will also make the biggest difference. When you’re considering updating your kitchen or purchasing a new home, you’ll want to consider the appliances in your space.

Luxury appliance brands, such as Miele or Gaggenau, make some gorgeous pieces that will be perfect for a wide range of tastes. But, of course, luxury comes at a range, and there are a plethora of luxury brands to choose from. 

"Appliances" also goes beyond your basic fridge, oven, and stove. Additional appliances, such as a wine/beverage coolers or a warming drawer could be the finishing touch for your luxury kitchen.

Luxury Cookware

Sometimes an afterthought, luxury cookware is not for everyone. However, it is advisable that you invest in cookware that will last you a long time—and that makes you want to use it.

There are a multitude of luxury brands to choose from, in a number of colours and finishes, when it comes to luxury cookware, and this is applicable for both gas and induction cooktops. Well-made, high-end equipment will last longer, look better, and will help you cook your food to perfection.

Intricate Lighting

The lighting in your kitchen will elevate your space to new heights. Depending on your personal style, lighting in your kitchen can be something contemporary and edgy, or an elaborate chandelier—whatever appeals to you!

Other than beautiful, central light fixtures, there are other ways to incorporate lighting into your kitchen. Luxury kitchens often have lighting within cabinets, activated when opened. As well, under-counter lighting is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon!

Quality Countertops and Backsplashes

The icing on the cake that really brings the entire look together! While countertop and backsplash trends seem to change every couple of years, generally you’ll want to consider something durable that will still feel classic as time passes. 

Some popular choices include quartz (which overtook granite a while ago!), as well as marble—as a more adventurous choice! Marble is often used for the backsplash, as well, which gives everything a seamless look. Unconventional materials, such as wood or stainless steel, are also popular alternatives for countertops, while tile (ceramic or stone) remains the favoured material for backsplashes. But what you choose is up to you!

Fun, Handy Gadgets

What’s a kitchen without a few gadgets? And what’s a luxury kitchen without some high-end ones? 

There’s a kitchen gadget for everything. Le Creuset, Bosch, and Smeg are just some of the top brands making some excellent small kitchen appliances—and in the case of that last one, colour-coordinated ones, too! From waffle-makers to mixers, wine bottlers to espresso machines, consider investing in some handy gadgets that fit your lifestyle. 

But where do I store them all? Why, in your appliance garage: the luxury kitchen storage solution that’s become ever so trendy!
