When remodeling the kitchen, keep in mind that you are renovating the kitchen not just for resale value, but for your own enjoyment. Nowadays, the kitchen is becoming more the social epicenter of the home and we always want an elegant and durable space that we can maintain and work in for a long time. If money is not an issue and you want the best kitchen, here are some tips to achieve the look and quality you want.
Choose a traditional Victorian kitchen style for a formal and elegant look. This style is characteristic of American and European homes from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Crown and rope molding, fluting, brackets and other embellishments and trims create a grand look fit for a queen. Compliment this style with antique fixtures and appliances. For the cabinet doors, dark and strong wood such as cherry and walnut is the best choice. Apply ornate details and moldings to elegant cabinet details such as cathedral arches and raised panels. Top your cabinets with heavy moldings and stacked up to the ceiling to make use of available space. Include cabinet options such as tilting front doors, spice racks and slide-out wire baskets for more functionality.
Go for a more individual look on your kitchen appliances and spend more on quality. Remember that you want to enjoy working in the kitchen, so don’t hold back on quality and functionality when choosing kitchen appliances. There are new products available such as plate warmers, built-in coffee systems, state-of-the-art ovens and high-tech dishwashers that could do most kitchen chores without lifting a finger. Buy your appliances from well-established market brands that provide good after-sales service and long-term warranties
