Sometimes it’s the smaller details that make all the difference in your home. One area that benefits immensely from custom upgrades is your kitchen.

If you are looking for some design elements that will take your kitchen upgrade from standard to luxurious, we have some ideas for you.

Unique Flooring in the Kitchen

Your kitchen should have flooring that looks great and also stands up to daily use.

It needs to be durable and easy to clean since the kitchen is one of the most heavily trafficked areas of the home and should also compliment the rest of the décor choices. Some examples include wood-like tile that is durable and easy to clean while looking timeless, like hardwood floors.

Slate is another option that looks great while hiding everyday messes. You can also choose designs that match other kitchen elements like the backsplash or play with color. Choosing a checkerboard pattern of ceramic tile or installing a mosaic border around solid-colored tile is sure to make the space look attractive.

A Striking Backsplash is the Perfect Kitchen Upgrade

Possibly the easiest way to change the look and feel of your kitchen is to install a striking backsplash. Depending on the color, texture, and materials used, a new backsplash can make the most basic kitchen look extravagant.

The options are endless when it comes to backsplashes. Choosing an on-trend material like marble will give your kitchen a sophisticated look, while natural stone can be used to make the space look tranquil and warm.

Add a Beverage Center

Everyone loves being able to get their favorite beverage whenever they need it, whether it’s a special bottle of wine, an ice-cold beer, or a hot cup of coffee.

Now, there are appliances that cater to your thirsty needs. Wine storage units come in different sizes to fit into your kitchen and accommodate all your bottles. Under-counter refrigerators and refrigerated drawers put cold beer, soda and juice at your fingertips.

And if you’re into coffee, you can get built-in units that are connected to your water supply, so a hot espresso or latte is always just moments away.

Painted Kitchen Cabinets

Adding some color to your kitchen will completely change the look of your kitchen. If you don’t want to have plain white or wood finish cabinets, consider cabinets finished in color to completely transform your space.

Popular colors like blues and greys will make your kitchen look modern and provide a luxe look, and can be easily paired with the unique flooring and striking backsplash, you are also going to install. 

Include a Secondary Sink

Having two sinks in the kitchen is an underrated feature, especially if you enjoy entertaining. In addition to your larger main sink, we can install a small secondary sink. We like to put them either on your island or include a space for one in your beverage center.

Either way, this sink can be used for washing fruits and veggies or defrosting meat without having to use your main sink. You can get a sink and faucet that matches your main sink or opt for something more eye-catching, like an under-mount copper sink.

Whatever kitchen upgrade ideas you’d like to include in your next remodel, we are here to help. Let’s get started!
