On the other hand, today, most kitchens that are designed are open to the living room.

In the same way, the majority of kitchens that are not designed open to the living room, is because the owners of the house do not want their living rooms to smell of food or the kitchen vapors coming out of it.

The countertop is the most visible element in a kitchen, the one that stands out the most and the one we work on.

It is literally our workbench in the kitchen.

It is undoubtedly one of the most important parts of the kitchen.

In fact, depending on this choice, you are guaranteed a kitchen without renovations in a few years, or a kitchen that has to be renovated because the countertop is completely damaged and disfigured by use and the passage of time.

In this sense, today we have very good quality countertops that will allow us to clean them easier and better; countertops that guarantee greater durability, greater impact to bumps and cuts, as well as excellent resistance to high temperatures.

These countertops are made with a mixture of raw materials (glass, porcelain, quartz, etc.) exposed to a technological process that represents an accelerated version of the metamorphic changes that these materials undergo over the millennia at high pressure and temperature, achieving virtually indestructible surfaces.

Thus, the countertop becomes another of these important points that will make your kitchen a luxury kitchen.

Furniture and cabinets that optimize space

Luxury kitchen furniture and finishes

Luxury kitchen furniture and finishes

In addition to choosing beautiful and elegant luxury finishes, such as walnut wood, sumptuous lacquers or minimalist panelling, which are some of the trending finishes in luxury kitchens today, a high-level kitchen needs every inch to be well used and adapted to our demands and lifestyle.

Although it may seem like one of the easiest parts when designing a kitchen, since it is only about "filling it with cabinets", it depends on the care and attention you put into its design, location and customization, how comfortable it is afterwards you sit in your kitchen.

  • Do you need a breakfast table or a coffee table?
  • Do you need a sliding broom closet or shelf?
  • Need a space for all your spices?
  • Do you need a lot of storage space?

Think about your needs and those of your family, and based on them, ask the interior designer or kitchen manufacturer to design those openings, cupboards and drawers that will make life easier for you and your family, due to your style of living. life.

You can not imagine how comfortable it is to have a space to your demands, until you have it. It becomes not only a comfortable and luxurious kitchen, but an intuitive space.

This results in a better organization of the space and a greater optimization of it since it is designed specifically for you.

perfect lighting

led under kitchen cabinets

Integrated LEDs in the base of the high cabinets in the kitchen

In general, in most kitchens, one or two, three or as many light points as needed are installed in line on the ceiling, recessed, with white light, around 4000 degrees Kelvin and that's it.

And in general, this standard lighting, although it is adequate, it is also true that it always generates shadows when we are cooking.

It has happened to all of us at some point that we are cooking and our own body casts a shadow on us and prevents us from seeing correctly, TRUE?

Therefore, do not forget to add a good lighting system under the upper kitchen cabinets to prevent that overhead light from being the only one you have in the kitchen when you go to work.

After many works, reforms and kitchen designs, I can tell you from my own experience that this is one of the points that my clients appreciate the most over time.

Not the design or the color of the finishes, but how comfortable and happy they are with their integrated LED lights under the upper cabinets and with how they cook and see perfectly.

In addition, if the kitchen is not very large, installing a system of automatic LED lights, which activate the lights when they detect movement, does not raise the price excessively.

It depends a lot on the kitchen and the electrical installation, but it can add about €400 to the total kitchen budget to install a competent lighting system.

Believe me, it is one of the additions that you will most appreciate in the future.

On the other hand, you only have to look at any luxury kitchen that you have seen live or in magazines, and you will realize that they all have this lighting system. There must be a reason.

As you can see, it's not just about aesthetics when it comes to having a luxury kitchen. It's actually the more practical things that are going to make your kitchen not only look luxurious, but feel luxurious and comfortable.
