High-End Kitchen Features
If you are planning to remodel your kitchen, here are some high-end features that will really make a big impression:
These are widely available and a common feature in an expensive kitchen upgrade. Expect a range with three to four times the BTU output of an ordinary home model and a look that is worth every penny.
GE Kitchen Hub
A Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled 27-inch touchscreen that sits directly above your stove, the GE Kitchen Hub not only gives users command over all their home’s connected devices but doubles as a functioning ventilator for those unexpected smokey moments. The Kitchen Hub comes equipped with stove-top facing cameras, allowing for the future potential of interactive cooking classes and of course, Hub users will also be able to stream their favorite playlist or binge watch Netflix on the device as they prepare dinner. Don’t worry about those sticky fingers while cooking, you can control the whole Hub via a voice-enabled assistant named Geneva.
You can use this in place of a regular dishwasher or in addition to a full-size dishwasher. These handy appliances offer efficient cleaning when you only have a few dishes. Consider installing one in a butler’s pantry, basement game room, or near a prep center.
Make it easy to cook large pots of pasta or soup, or add water to a recipe with ease. This convenient faucet placement will keep you from having to run from the sink to the stove while trying not to spill the water.
For a more streamlined and uniform appearance, go for the built-in refrigerator. This fits flush with your cabinets with nothing sticking out, and Articulating hinges allow the doors to open fully.
Be the hostess with the mostess and never put out a cold hors d’oeuvre unless intended. This warming drawer will allow you to keep cooked food at the perfect temperature until serving time.
You’ll love having a special area for your favorite drinks. Stylish and functional kitchen coffee stations stock everything you need in one convenient spot.
A common mistake is relying on one ceiling-mounted fixture to illuminate the entire kitchen. Homeowners are having professionals design and install lighting below, above, and inside their cabinets as well as recessed can lights. A combination of light fixtures offers the best mood-setting capabilities.
Transform a mess into a storage success with a walk-in pantry. There aren’t any strict rules about the size of the area or what you can store there. Customize your pantry to suit your home and lifestyle. You won’t know how you lived without this storage solution!
Also known as an apron front sink, farmhouse sinks are a timeless focal point in any kitchen. From a practical standpoint, they’re deep enough to hold large pots, and a shorter person has easier access to the sink.
Enclosed Trash & Recycling
Trash and recycling bins take up floor space, often smell bad, and are a temptation for pets. Hidden storage is ideal. Custom cabinets, like in the kitchen island shown below, can include compartments for your waste containers.
