Many off-the-plan developments will let you customise designs, allowing you to create the ultimate statement kitchen. Statement kitchens are all about the finishes, so whether it’s a beautiful marble countertop, a decadent wine fridge, statement appliances or bespoke cabinetry, adding considered, elegant finishes can imbue the space with positive energy. As the natural hub of the home, having a kitchen space that you love is the key to making the most out of your daily life.
Use luxurious materials and textures
Playing with texture is an excellent way to add a positive sense of energy to any room in your home, but especially your kitchen. Marble and calacatta are elegant materials that some of the best designers use to create showstopping benchtops or kitchen islands. Exuding luxury and subtle elegance, featuring a marble island is the perfect statement for a sophisticated kitchen.
Make a statement with appliances
Integrating bold, state of the art appliances in your kitchen is the perfect way to make a statement. When working with large appliances in your kitchen design, you can use them to frame the rest of your kitchen. For example, you may want to design your kitchen around a range cooker. These convenient french-inspired appliances add a subtle sense of style and a European flair to your kitchen. To ensure that your appliances are the focus of your space, you could opt for neutral, complimentary colours throughout the rest of the kitchen.
Cabinetry can add a surprising sense of space and opulence to your kitchen. If you’re building wall cabinets, for example, you can place them above the kitchen bench slightly higher than usual. This will infuse grandeur into your kitchen space. You could even make your cabinets taller to accentuate the height of your kitchen and give the illusion of more space.
When you infuse colour into your kitchen design, you allow personality to shine through without the clutter of personal decorations on your kitchen bench. You may want to take inspiration from Dulux by implementing ‘Blue Skies’, their colour of the year, into your design. Ensure that the colour in your kitchen is incorporated throughout the rest of your home as well. This will create a sense of flow throughout your apartment or townhome.
A statement kitchen can add a sense of opulence to any home and create a space that you enjoy spending time in each and every day.
