The Luxury Kitchen In Your Home

Apr 18, 2008
Luxury kitchens are becoming one of the most popular trends in fine living. Besides the obvious design perks of having a stylish space to cook and eat, turning your kitchen into a luxury space might even jumpstart your healthy lifestyle habits.

With amazing space including vast granite countertops to prepare healthy lifestyle foods to refrigerator technology that keeps foods fresher for longer, luxury kitchen design ideas are popping up n websites, blogs and throughout interior design magazines. Architectural designers are also getting a slice of the luxury life as business is booming for original designs in homes and remodels prompted by the recent appeal of sleek, sophisticated fine living spaces.

Size does matter where kitchens are concerned. Some people including couples and families use the kitchen as an extension of their living room. In these instances, and perhaps when designing a fine living space from scratch with an architect, it might be wise to dedicate more space to the area you think most time will be spent. For some, a functional kitchen is more important than a stylish one, and functionality and size can go hand in hand.

Questions to ask when considering kitchen size might include how large your family is, where you see your home and family in ten years and what your current and desired space includes. For the chef who will be cooking and entertaining, choosing a larger space is the best bet so as not to limit the future of your healthy lifestyle or luxury fine living options.

Dishwashers to sinks, refrigerators to ovens, having two of every appliance, even dishwashers, is the trend of the season. Again going with the bigger is better theme, ten years ago one might not be able to imagine having two of all these high end, often multi thousand dollars appliances. For the chef and for those who can afford such a luxury, a double oven is a great way to optimize kitchen operations. With baked potatoes on the top oven and brownies perfectly timed for dessert on the lower oven, double the duty often means a more efficient operation.

Where sinks are concerned, a double sink serves the purpose of dishwashing on one side and soaking vegetables or prepping other foods on the other side. This prevents cross contamination and makes healthy lifestyle choices more convenient for those who think that it is more complicated to create a fine living atmosphere.
