How to Make Your Kitchen Look Expensive

As we welcome another year, many homeowners will be remodelling their favourite spaces, especially their kitchens. If you are contemplating revamping the heart of your home to give it a luxurious look, here are some styling ideas to note.

Make sure to have the right layout

One of the important elements of kitchen design is the work triangle or the distance between the cooker, the sink and the refrigerator. The triangle’s main goal is to minimise the distance of major workstations, enabling a more convenient and efficient kitchen workflow. There are different kitchen layouts to choose from such as the L-shaped, which consists of countertops on two adjoining perpendicular walls, the U-shape that has three walls of cabinets and the galley layout that has two countertops opposite to each other with a walkway in between.

Use granite countertops

Granite is elegant and timeless. Known to be durable, it makes an ideal material for countertops. It’s tough and solid qualities make it less susceptible to chips, scratches and cracks and it can also resist heat without damage. Granite countertops are a great investment as they provide years of service and can increase the resale value of your property.

New Taps

With various designs on the market today, there’s no need to settle on the usual taps. Try to coordinate them with your cabinet hardware for a more striking look. Warm metals like gold and brass give a pop of colour and texture when put together with cool metals like silver and chrome.

Upgrade your light fixtures

A simple touch of lighting can update the aesthetics of your kitchen. Having said this, consider getting new light fixtures with intricate designs, such as pendant lights. Aside from illuminating a target area, it also accentuates certain parts of the kitchen and adds personality to the space. It is important to hang them at a significant distance below the ceiling to create a luxurious atmosphere.

Replace your cabinets

Replacing your old cabinets with new ones can give your kitchen a sleek look. Glass or high-gloss cabinet doors are a must if you want a clean concealed storage. On the other hand, if you want to display your dishware, you may opt for open shelving. You can also use trendy drawer pulls and cabinet knobs to add style to your storage.

Fresh coat of paint

Transform your kitchen by applying a fresh lick of paint to your walls. Creams and beiges can make your space look lavish, white can make it airier and expansive whilst dark colours such as black and grey gives a modern, sophisticated feel.

Invest in smart kitchen appliances

To improve your kitchen experience, consider investing in smart appliances. With its user-friendly technology, it makes your daily life easy by helping you with household tasks. Having a smart refrigerator allows you to track the freshness of your food and lets you plan menus. Meanwhile, a smart cooking range has advanced functionalities that let you cook food faster and more evenly.

Layer in some accessories

Breathe new life into your kitchen by adding accessories such as wall ferns and interesting textiles. Create a display area where you can put practical items and interesting pieces. Kitchen accessories can make an instant impression and help to lift the mood of your space.
