Your kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home. It makes total sense that you want to have a luxurious kitchen when designing and building your custom Gold Coast home.
Not just a place to prepare and cook food, the kitchen is often a place where the family gathers and with open plan living areas now taking over new home designs, the kitchen can be seen and accessed easily from the main common areas such as the lounge, dining room and outdoor areas.
If you are looking for ideas and inspiration for how to design and build a Gold Coast luxury kitchen in 2022, then look no further! We give you six things to consider when designing and building a luxury kitchen.
What do luxury kitchens tend to have on the Gold Coast?
Building a luxurious kitchen is worth every penny when it is something you use every day and has the potential to make your life so much easier and enjoyable! Even packing the kids’ school lunches can be less taxing, trust us!
Plus, your kitchen is a room that will often be seen by your house guests so it is nice to add a bit of luxury.
Adding a butler’s pantry to your custom home is an absolute must in 2022. It goes without saying, that more space is a good thing. But even being able to “hide” appliances, pots and pans, and dishes means the common area of your home looks cleaner, tidier and gives more of a sense of calm and organisation.
Using LED lighting under your bulkheads is a great way to soften our kitchen lighting and give a more luxurious feel.
Pendant lighting over your kitchen island or main kitchen bench also makes a big difference and adds a fantastic feature to your luxury kitchen.
High Quality Kitchen Cabinets
All the hardware in your kitchen should have a lifetime warranty including the hinges, the draw runners and cabinetry doors.
We think soft close drawers and cupboards are a non-negotiable for a new kitchen build in 2022. Minimise noise and any possible damage of the contents of your cabinetry with this simple upgrade.
Avoid solid wood cabinets as the moisture in your kitchen will eventually cause the wood to warp or swell, creating cabinets that won’t close properly! You also want to be able to confidently wipe down your kitchen cabinets with water and disinfectant for hygiene purposes so it is best to go for a laminated wood, plastic or a melamine finish to ensure they won’t fade.
Trendy Kitchen Splashbacks
Your splashback is a great place to be able to add a touch of luxury to your kitchen. The best options are either tile or stone and you can choose to blend it seamlessly with your kitchen bench or make a statement with bright or patterned tiles.
You can even have a small ledge or shelf built into your splashback, convenient for oils and spice jars.
Thick Kitchen Benches and Countertops
When designing and building a new luxury kitchen you should use stone countertops for your kitchen bench. As trends have changed, the way to add more luxury to your kitchen is to opt for 40mm thick stone benchtops as opposed to the traditional 20mm.
Another popular kitchen feature is a waterfall bench to add more interest and design to your kitchen. This is where the countertop continues down the side of your kitchen island to the floor giving the ‘waterfall illusion’.
Ensure you buy your appliances before designing your luxury kitchen, so your cabinet maker knows what sizes to design and build all the cabinetry for your new kitchen.
Stainless steel appliances are very much out of style now in 2022 and all appliances are either black or are integrated into the cabinetry to be on trend.
Integrated appliances means things like your fridge, microwave, and dishwasher have their own cabinet door attached to the appliance so it appears as part of the kitchen cabinetry and gives a cleaner look.
If you are trying to make a luxurious impression then keep high end appliances such as specialty wine fridges visible.
