The entire kitchen renovation will look outstanding, but these show-stopping features will take center stage. Explore the benefits and see how these kitchen upgrades take their designs to the next level:
1. Solid Material Countertops
Laminate countertops are a fine budget option, but a dream kitchen demands the feel and color of a solid surface countertop. Granite and quartz are the luxury countertop materials we use, and they are simply better than even the best laminate options. The authentic stone look of a solid surface countertop can’t be replicated, and the extra durable materials provide decades of great style.
2. Range Hoods
Going along with a new gas or electric range, this kitchen upgrade is a must-have for at-home chefs everywhere. From a practical standpoint this supersized hood clears the air in your kitchen quickly and efficiently, just like in a professional kitchen. From an aesthetic standpoint, nothing announces your love of all things culinary like one of these kitchen features.
3. Two-Tier Kitchen Island or Double Island
These dream kitchen features are an incredible addition to the spaces that can accommodate it. Two-tier kitchen islands provide the ultimate flexible space between a lower prep area and a higher seating area. On the other hand, the double island is a potent visual centerpiece, especially when paired with a bold countertop pattern. Either of these upgrades signal that your kitchen is a truly a one-in-a-million space!
4. Bar Seating
Going along with the two-tier kitchen island, bar seating allows you to create a multi-person seating area. This is perfect for entertaining guests while you prepare dinner, or it can be a standout spot for casual family meals on busy weekday evenings. More than any of that, since this is such an uncommon addition to see, it will surely be an attention-grabbing addition to your dream kitchen.
5. Undermount Sinks
An on-trend kitchen upgrade, undermount sinks provide a sleeker and subtler profile for your entire countertop. While once upon a time, all sinks were molded and placed down into the countertops, this breaks free of that and makes a huge style difference. Simply put, nothing makes your kitchen look new quite like a striking undermount sink.
6. Backsplashes that Match
Color and pattern coordination is one of the traits that separates a nice-enough kitchen from a magazine-worthy kitchen. One of our favorite ways to weave this coordination together is by pairing the backsplash with another element in the kitchen. You can exactly match the backsplash pattern by placing a set of accent tiles (on a tier island, for example). Of course, you can create style symmetry by connecting the color of the backsplash to the cabinet color.
7. Unique Cabinets
Cabinets are one of the most impactful parts of any kitchen remodel (and one of the biggest financial investments, too). Whether you want totally new cabinets or to simply renovate your current cabinets, you can make them all your own. Different cabinet doors or a new cabinet paint or stain color can provide a unique kitchen update without replacing perfectly serviceable cabinets.
While kitchens are one of the most popular rooms of the house to renovate, any room can be improved with designs tailored to your personality. While kitchen remodeling is certainly one of our specialties, our team builds luxury master bathrooms, powder rooms, finished basements, and much more. No matter what we build for you, you can count on the same personalized design services and elite quality craftsmanship.
We hope you’re feeling inspired by these dream kitchen features and are actively imagining how you’d incorporate them in your design. Of course, if you like our ideas and our design philosophy, we’d love to work with you. The first step is to schedule a conversation with one of our designers at your home or in our showroom and inspiration center!
