What makes a luxury kitchen truly luxurious?

Let’s start by acknowledging “luxury” is a bit of a subjective term. That said, luxury usually use high-quality materials and share these traits:

  • Awe-inspiring countertops — Countertops can make a huge design statement for your kitchen. Luxury materials like marble and granite are the most common choices because of their unique look, veining, and colors.
  • Updated appliances — Not everything in the kitchen has to be brand-spanking-new; however, newer (or at least newer looking) appliances that blend seamlessly into your kitchen can go a long way to making your kitchen look and feel luxurious.
  • High-end cabinets and hardware — Cabinets are always the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel. If you want a luxurious kitchen, you have to spend that little bit extra on cabinets and hardware.
  • Hyper-personalization — If you’re spending money on your kitchen, you probably spend a lot of time in there and find it a good investment. You might as well look for opportunities to add custom elements to your kitchen, like ‘fridges dedicated to beverages or space allotted for particular uses.
  • Unique and to-the-ceiling backsplashes — A good looking backsplash that works well into the design of your kitchen gives the entire room its own luxurious feeling; adding mosaics or stylized tile is also popular.
  • Big and functional sinks and faucets — There are a variety of sink and faucet options to consider, depending on your style of cooking and cleaning, so this is another great opportunity to customize your kitchen.
  • Recycling and garbage cans blend in — Whether you hide them in the cabinetry or find the perfect trashcans that fit your kitchen aesthetic, making them blend in with the kitchen helps the feel of luxury.
  • Chic and flexible lighting — For bigger kitchens, the need to have a variety of lighting configurations that all look good becomes paramount — things like recessed lighting or gorgeous lighting fixtures work well.

What are the trends for luxury kitchens?

We have the benefit of working with customers across Philadelphia, New Hampshire and New Jersey so we see the emerging trends in luxury kitchens before they become mainstream. Here are some of the trends we’re seeing more and more:

  • One big slab for backsplashes — Using a big beautiful slab of marble or granite for a backsplash acts as the protection for your walls and an artistic-looking flourish that oozes luxury.
  • Matching countertops and backsplashes — While this isn’t widely popular (yet), there are more and more designers choosing to make countertops and backsplash match to create a seamless look.
  • Multiple sinks — Especially for larger kitchens, having multiple sinks is one of those things that you didn’t realize you needed until you have them.
  • Sleek ventilation hoods — Usually the last thing you think of when it comes to remodeling your kitchen, but choosing an updated sleek looking ventilation hood is becoming more and more popular.
  • Direct, ambient and access lighting — Different parts of the kitchen require different lighting, plus lighting can just look great (like under-cabinet lights); luxury kitchens are thoughtful in their lighting choices to provide light for form and function.

How expensive is a luxury kitchen remodeling?

We hope we’re not bursting any bubbles here, but luxury comes at a cost. However, there are some things you can do to manipulate your luxury kitchen budget to get the most bang for your buck. The biggest expenses of remodeling a kitchen are the cabinets and so they are the most cost-effective way to save on your luxury kitchen. A to-the-studs luxury kitchen renovation can cost upwards of $60,000.
