  1. Luxury Kitchen Designs Are Elevated in These 3 Ways

    Leave a Comment

    When you hear the words “luxury kitchen”, several images likely come to mind in an attempt to define it. Perhaps you immediately think of gourmet appliances, quality cabinets, quartz countertops, or even cutting-edge technology integrated into the design. Each element of the space complements the next.

    Chances are, each time we define “luxury”–how it looks, feels and smells, we conjure up another magical image that encapsulates an oasis of comfort, style and taste – and each shares a commonality–they are custom designed and custom built.

    Here are the three ways custom design transforms your luxury kitchen into a wholly luxurious space that invites you to cook, entertain and unwind.

    An Uninterrupted Kitchen Floorplan

    Building a custom luxury kitchen gives you creative control over its layout, helping it integrate flawlessly into your daily routine and the rest of your home. By establishing an uninterrupted flow, you tie your home together in a way that a standard kitchen does not. A customized kitchen plan maximizes efficiencies and improves your day-to-day life dramatically.

    Custom kitchen design provides you the opportunity to choose a floor-plan that facilitates your intended kitchen usage so that your home serves you and your lifestyle as it should.

    If, for example, you know that you will use your kitchen as a gathering place during social events, you can work with your designer to build an open design concept that doesn’t feel crowded and encourages mingling between those in the kitchen and adjacent living areas.

    Kitchen Design Elements as Parts of a Whole

    Luxury design is a subtle art, the elements in your kitchen (and your home) must play together in a symphony of accents, melodies and undertones. The kitchen itself holds the power to breathe life into all other aspects of your home, and keeping those artful accents in mind (and especially how they interact with each other) while designing your kitchen is imperative.

    The sheer number of options available to you when building a first class kitchen is exhilarating. Consider the varieties of wood from which your completely custom cabinetry can be made, the nuanced countertop materials from which to choose, and the light fixtures you can select to bathe it all in the soft glow of home. And all of these choices are at your fingertips, ready to come together to create your perfect kitchen!

    In summary, a well-designed custom luxury kitchen works seamlessly with itself, each piece with the other to form a cohesive sui generis ensemble. This allows the kitchen to compliment and enhance the rest of the home, and all of it to flawlessly align with, and express – your unique vogue.

    Owning Your Unique Kitchen Design

    Speaking of tastes, constructing a custom kitchen allows you to express your unique aesthetics and prioritize what is important to you – something that a baseline kitchen design will not allow you to do. This is one of the primary advantages of investing in a luxury kitchen.

    Your kitchen can finally become the space where you can really decompress with a glass of your favorite wine, or maybe you’ll even be inspired to break out the ingredients and try that new recipe alongside your cooking show. Not to mention the early morning cup of coffee is always better when you’re bathed in a magnificent space of your own design! The environment and design of a luxury kitchen can elevate these experiences.

    And as you can imagine, every time you see the exquisite materials you’ve chosen, artfully and masterfully placed, and the superb quality of each hand-selected furniture piece, you’ll feel more at home, more comfortable and more blissful than ever before!

    It takes an exceptional designer to take something from idea to concept to luxurious livable space.

  2. 2019 Kitchen Trends: Color, Cabinets and Copper Accents

    Leave a Comment

    Because of the investment of time, effort and, of course, money when designing a new kitchen, or remodeling an existing space, when it comes to choosing colors, materials and finishing touches, timeless typically beats trendy. However, with a professional’s touch, it is possible to have the best of both worlds.

    “We dug into this year’s hottest kitchen elements to find the trends that are transcending into the realm of mainstay techniques in modern design,” details Phil Kean. “While these are our predictions for the details that will continue to dominate kitchens in 2019, our team of interior designers foresee each of the following directions maintaining their appeal for years or decades to come.”

    Our designers’ findings may surprise you, and are also sure to delight and inspire. Keep reading for the top five trends that will rule kitchen design in 2019 and beyond.

    Pops of Color

    Not long ago, all-white kitchens reigned supreme—our own monochromatic kitchen remodel won Room of the Year at the 2013 Best in American Living Awards. While simplicity still earns a top spot on trend lists, vibrant pops of color are claiming their moment in the spotlight.

    From accent walls and accessories, to cabinetry and ceramic tile, there are countless methods of incorporating unexpected hues in kitchen designs. Deep, jewel tone greens and blues have dominated interior design palettes in recent years. In 2019, we can expect to see the rise of earthy, warm tones—burnt orange, caramel and red. Muted shades of blue, green and gray, as well as rich teal, will also be a popular choice adorning islands, wall storage and appliances.

    Open Shelving

    Wood, glass, minimal, traditional—when it comes to selecting kitchen cabinetry, the possibilities are bountiful and beautiful. As we move into 2019, opting for open shelving in place of closed upper cabinets will continue to be a top trend for those building or remodeling a modern kitchen.

    A style as sleek as it is practical, open shelving allows homeowners to organize and display cookware, serving trays, pitchers, plates and other unique treasures. With no doors to hide behind, open storage solutions also offer an incentive to stay tidy and keep kitchen collections cohesive. With a range of available materials and styles—from floating live-edge wood planks to dark piping or stainless-steel brackets for an industrial touch—open shelving can contribute to creating a totally custom look.

    Two-Toned Kitchens

    There is a time and place for a monochromatic look, but 2019 brings with it an opportunity to shake things up. Two-toned kitchen designs are making waves for blending sophisticated elegance with a contemporary twist. This look can be obtained by mixing colors, materials or finishes, but achieving the right amount of contrast requires a designer’s eye.

    A popular route to incorporating multiple colors within a single kitchen design involves pairing dark lower cabinets with a light finish on the upper. This approach draws the eye upwards, creating the illusion of higher ceilings and open space. Color blocking an island or one wall of cabinets is another technique to add visual interest to a modern design and can be used to accent a point of focus, like a state-of-the-art gas range.

    Gold and Copper Accents

    From hardware to appliances and accessories, metal finishes add a luxe touch to any kitchen design. As color trends heat up, metallic accents will follow suit. In 2019, spaces will trade cool silver, platinum and stainless steel for warm gold and copper.

    Pairing well with dark shades like navy and black, as well as white and natural wood, gold and copper finishes boost contrast and style. Incorporated into modern designs, warm metals bring classic refinement in a timeless package.

    Pendant Lighting

    As showcased in several of our designs, pendant lighting is a chic way to call attention to a space’s central focus point. In the kitchen, pendants are a perfect complement to recessed lighting—practical yet polished.

    With a wide range of available suspended lighting styles, there are plenty of options to match your kitchen’s look and feel. Choose from Edison bulbs enclosed in glass, mid-century modern globes accented in gold, industrial metal shades and geometric designs, among many others.

    Unique Cabinet Handles and Hardware

    In exceptional kitchen design, it’s all about the details. Cabinet handles, pulls and hardware put the finishing touches on a space and have the ability to completely transform a room. For the 2019 kitchen trends, these elements will get their due respect, with intentional and innovative elements dominating interiors.

    From recessed handles to leather pulls and hardware making use of the gold and copper accent trend, this trend focuses on combining the best of form and function. A style that has stood the test of time in our own minimal kitchen designs, handle-free cabinetry is also set to gain widespread traction.
