Luxury homeowners want large luxurious kitchens. But, today’s luxury homeowners may not do a lot of cooking themselves in these kitchens. Instead, they often want a luxury kitchen that can accommodate a professional chef or caterer for large gatherings. Here are some of the top trends for kitchens in ultra-luxury homes.
Two Kitchens Are Better Than One
In many luxury homes, a secondary kitchen sometimes called a butler’s pantry or scullery is utilized to help cater large events. This area can be used as a setup area for passed hors d’oeuvres or as an overflow area for preparation or clean up, when the main kitchen is fully utilized.
Ultra-luxury kitchens are expected to have the latest gadgets and technology, and these features are often integrated into the design. Many luxury kitchens feature large walk-in pantries, multiple refrigerators and/or dishwashers, multiple ovens, wine coolers and smart home technology. Other bonuses include warming drawers, wall-in cappuccino makers, and even wine pouring devices.
For the Homeowner Who Loves to Cook
A gourmet chef’s kitchen is a serious undertaking for the homeowner who loves to cook and wants to create and enjoy an entire experience while creating their own delicious gourmet specialties. Gourmet kitchens revolve around three necessities: food preparation, cooking appliances, and an ample supply of organized storage options.
The luxury design elements often combine practicality with an abundance of style. Modern kitchen décor typically utilizes several countertop surfaces for accommodating a variety of different food preparation. A deep kitchen sink is a necessity, and in many kitchens, there are several. Lighting is also an integral part of the overall design and must offer an abundance of light for work areas while providing optional dimming and lighting options for aesthetics. Cabinetry selection, the use of decorative moulding, and the backsplash material all provide distinctive design elements to accommodate the homeowner’s preferences.
