Building Your Dream Kitchen Without Budget Considerations

What kind of kitchen would you design if you could go for broke? (Although you’ll have few worries about going “broke” from a solid investment, like a well-planned kitchen remodel.) Great kitchens are superbly functional; truly a joy to use and spend time in everyday. Stunning kitchens certainly catch homebuyers eyes, so if you decide to sell your home, the property could sell quicker or bring a higher price. But all that’s for the future. Right now, let’s look at the extravagant upgrades and luxury kitchen accoutrements you can include in your custom kitchen redesign when money is no object.

Aim for an Airy, Open Kitchen

Does your new kitchen vision include an open layout? Would you like to create high, beamed ceilings? These design details are very popular–and for good reason, but no matter what type of kitchen space you desire, we can create it. As an experienced WV design/build company, Miller’s Residential Creations can remove (or relocate) walls and vault the ceiling to achieve your perfect kitchen, to reveal amazing sightlines from anywhere in the home. The point is; if you can imagine it, we can build it.

Create a Chef’s Kitchen with an Impressive Range

You can’t have a high-end chef’s kitchen without top-of-the-line appliances. The central feature of a gourmet kitchen is, of course, the stove. Select a large, extremely capable, commercial gas range with at least 6 burners and a double oven.In addition to your professional-level gas range, you might also want a state-of-the-art induction cooktop that never feels hot. To keep your cooking options open, you might add a microwave and a multi-function oven (with steam and convection settings).

Pair Commercial Appliances with Smart-Home Capability

Finish off your kitchen appliance list with a strikingly designed, ample refrigerator with advanced smart features, like a door that goes transparent when touched, so you can easily view what’s inside. These days, almost all kitchen appliances are available in “intelligent” versions that can communicate with you and connect with your smart home system. A high-tech fridge, dishwasher and even an espresso machine can all be networked for convenient remote control and monitoring from your phone.

Design Custom Wood Cabinets, to the Ceiling

You’ll enjoy designing bespoke cabinets to your exact specifications for your new custom kitchen. You can get exactly the style, color, functionality, dimensions, hardware and configuration you desire. The possibilities are endless when you can customize every tiny detail. Well-built custom wood cabinets should last a lifetime.

Select Luxury Finishes for a Stunning Kitchen

Choose incomparable luxury finishes that please the eye, invite touch, and may even inspire envy in visitors to your home, for instance:

Top of the line quartz countertop: Silestone offers a wide variety of countertops that mimic natural stone, as well as striking solid colors, to help achieve any look you like for your kitchen remodel. Showcase your high-end countertop surface by also using it on a kitchen island or peninsula in a waterfall design (where the countertop material extends down the side of the island, to the floor).

Elegant flooring: Breathtaking natural marble is the first option that may come to mind, and could be an excellent choice, although sealing and care is required to prevent scratches and stains. If you prefer hardwoods, consider an exotic; like dramatic Tigerwood or deep red Brazilian cherry, with a strong protective finish, often done on-site for best results.

Innovative new appliance finishes: Matte black may be the newest option, or you could go with classy, modern stainless appliances. Perhaps you might prefer to have your fridge cleverly and attractively hidden behind the door of a custom kitchen cabinet and built right in.

High-end fixtures/faucet: Select a no-touch faucet for convenience and consider black or brass, which are trending now, yet classic enough to stand the test of time. Include a practical pot filler to complete the commercial kitchen ambiance.

Backsplash: Consider using texture, rather than (or in combination with) color or pattern, to convey richness and subtle elegance. Subway tiles are an excellent option, too. Choose an interesting installation pattern, like herringbone, and the meticulous craftsmanship of your kitchen remodel will shine through.

Custom lighting: Add character to your kitchen design with unique pendant lighting over the island. Add custom under-cabinet lighting for convenience, and to keep your gleaming countertop in view.

Farmhouse sink: An attractive apron front sink is a “must” for the deluxe kitchen, and a real conversation starter for everyone who enters. Looks great in everything from white porcelain to cast iron, enameled or stainless steel, copper or…use your imagination!
