Setting up a luxury kitchen does not mean that you will simply go splurging on every item you need. On the contrary, even a luxurious space requires some amount of constraint. There is no point in springing for a marble countertop if it does not work with the rest of the kitchen. There are undoubtedly some areas where you will spend big to get the right look but for the space, and these are:
- The cabinets. No luxury kitchen is complete without custom cabinets. As soon as you have a layout and know how much space you will need, you will have to hire a cabinet maker. Every detail is important, from the height and the accessories to the color and design. Homeowners generally enjoy this stage of the process as it allows them to create a space that reflects their tastes.
- The countertops. There are a number of durable countertop options, so look for the ones that are the most attractive and that suit the look of the rest of the space. Quartz, marble and granite are some of the most sought after options for luxury countertops. You can also consider options like travertine and onyx for durable and beautiful workspaces.
- If you want a luxury kitchen, you must be highly selective when it comes to getting the right appliances. Unfortunately, looks alone are not enough. Top of the line brands with the most advanced technological features will reflect your emphasis on class and luxury.
Understanding the Cost
A high end kitchen does not come cheap, but it is a good investment. Typical the cost ranges between $45,000 to $100,000, depending on the features you choose. A big chunk of that will go to the materials, with the custom cabinets accounting for much of this. Keep in mind that the cost of materials is sometimes influenced by your location.
Included in the budget will be designer hardware and accessories. With a luxury kitchen remodel you can forget about big-box items in this category.
In many luxury kitchens, the natural look of wood is a powerful and sometimes dominant visual. You are not bound by any particular color schemes, but contrasts work effectively in these spaces. A white wall against dark wood is a good example of a lovely contrast. Consider the rich look of red-toned wood and grays for your luxury kitchen as well.
