12 ideas for designing a sophisticated and luxurious kitchen
September 26, 2018
Functional luxury is now trending, and that applies for kitchen decoration, too: refreshing, brilliant and stimulating ideas that will bring a more elegant look to your kitchen without losing the practicality that a space of this type needs. Here, we explain the best ways to get your kitchen oozing more class.
1- Immaculate lighting design
Replace your classic kitchen lamps with more aesthetically pleasing designer models. Select large-sized lampshades in striking designs to add elegance and style to your kitchen.
2- Gold and copper taps
Add a trendy detail to your kitchen using taps with gold and copper finishes. You can find designer pieces in these two materials. Some of them have smooth, straight lines, while others come in a classic or a rustic style, but they’ll all transform the look of your kitchen.
3- Shiny features
Also available in more luxurious designs are switches and sockets. You can infuse sophistication and style to your kitchen by replacing your more basic models with these classier ones.
Choose pieces with glossy coatings in brass, silver or copper and even the smallest details will shimmer with stylish perfection.
4- Exclusive handles
Freshen up the look of your kitchen by replacing the handles of your drawers and cupboards. Select handles in leather or brass, or with glossy details, to add personality and style to your kitchen.
5- Double-door refrigerators
If space allows, install a double-door fridge in a classic American style. You’ll enjoy a very spacious kitchen appliance with the best features, including, of course, a must-have ice and cold-water dispenser on the front of the door.
6- Classier countertops and backsplashes
Choose a practical and stylish surface for your countertops and backsplashes. Silestone’s designs allow you to enjoy a unique material that combines practicality, high performance and quality in a single product. For the most upscale kitchens, where black predominates, you should opt for the Marquina or Charcoal Soapstone colors from the Eternal Collection. Silestone offers these two new products, ideal options for creating an exceptional kitchen, both more practical and more beautiful. And if you prefer Dekton ultra-compact surfaces, you should choose one of their grey tones: Manhattan, from the XGloss Basiq Collection; Fossil, from the Natural Collection; or Strato, from the Tech Collection. These three very stylish options will help you design a kitchen abounding with personality.
7- Small gourmet kitchen appliances
The elegant new designs of small kitchen appliances mean that you can just leave them on your countertop in plain view. Designer coffee makers with state-of-the-art features, retro-style toasters and blenders…Their immaculate style will always have a place in your kitchen.
8- Natural floral and plant décor
If you want to impress with an upscale and stylish kitchen, don’t forget to include some plant decorations. Natural flowers placed in exquisite vases, or potted plants brimming with personality, will instill a natural and very stylish feel to your kitchen. Cactuses and succulent plants, one of the current trends in home décor, will surely add a dab of freshness and character to your kitchen.
9- Accessories and cleaning products in decorative containers
Forget about bottles and cardboard cartons of dishwashing powder and other cleaning products. Store them in decorative glass containers, or buy quality cleaning products that already come in designer containers.
10- Designer auxiliary furniture
Stools, chairs and auxiliary trolleys. Give your kitchen some extra personality with furniture pieces featuring exquisite modern designs. Experience the pleasure of a more stylish office by using some of the many design items that exist, such as the Eames Plastic Chair, the ergonomic format of the Panton Chair, or the boldest and most colourful versions of the Tolix.
11- Stylish extractor hoods
Fume extractor hoods have become an essential decorative item in the most sophisticated kitchens. Take a look at the impressive models of extractor hoods that add a surprising decorative touch to their efficacy.
12- Bottle racks
If you like good wine and want to design a more elegant and luxurious space, a bottle rack is a must. You can fit one in an upper storage unit or on the floor, beside the fridge. You’ll then always be able to enjoy your best wines at an ideal temperature.
