Cabinets

Drawers, drawers & drawers! Did I mention Drawers? You need them. If your new kitchen design doesn’t cater to your pots and pans, then you’re losing storage space. The utensil drawers are your best friend as well. If you can make the utensil drawer to 600mm wide in lieu of a standard 450mm you have extra space for your cooking utensils.

The best luxury kitchen cabinet materials need to be long-lasting. The available options are wood, veneer, MDF, stainless steel and laminate. Laminates offer a plethora of designs and finishes to satisfy your creative palette.

Some of the best luxurious picks for door and drawer faces to bring the style are as follows;
Flat / Smooth finish – Can be in matte or high gloss, Shaker style, Glass door cabinets (They look great in overheads), Heritage / Traditional look, country style and Finger grip rails (Gives a seamless look to your kitchen with no handles).

Flooring

Being the hardest-working room in the luxury house, it is without a doubt that your kitchen requires a durable floor that can take all the abuse from spills and drips to the plot of feet. With so many flooring materials available in the market; you need to select one keeping in view the style, comfort, and functional requirements. Hardwood, vinyl, porcelain & ceramic tile, and natural stone are some of the common flooring materials for the kitchen. If you don’t mind going out on a limb burnished concrete and polished concrete are some of the greatest looks to have, however in winter prepare yourself as the floor can get chilly.

From all, vinyl floating flooring is getting popular as the most versatile kitchen flooring solution. It is durable and impervious to stains, damage, and moisture problems, but this will depend on the grade of vinyl you purchase. It is easy to clean and sweep. Modern luxury vinyl floors are the high-quality affordable choice that can also give you the looks of hardwood floors.

Countertops & Kitchen Islands

Countertops and kitchen island defines the active workplace and cooking area in your house’s heart that has to be sturdy and stylish. From the list of recommended countertop materials granite is at the top of the list. It gives you the ideal non-porous surface that is easy to clean and can withstand all sorts of cooking activities. But if you’re tight on budget, you can go for an engineered stone such as Essastone or Quartz stone, which though gives a chic style but for a fraction of the cost, this range will vary in cost so you need to make sure that when discussing this with your luxury builder that they make this apparent that the stone is in the high range or low range costing.

Scullery
