They say ‘a house is not a home’ – and this is true to an extent. A house is merely bricks and mortar.

On its own – no matter what ‘stuff’ you fill it with – the bricks and mortar only really becomes a home because of the people you share the space with, be they friends or family.

The Kitchen is The Heart of the Home

However, maybe it’s not quite as simplistic as that.

In fact, all the ‘stuff’ we put into our homes: the gadgets, the furniture, the comforts are important.

Modern life can be busy, hectic, and often stressful. The home is the place we keep coming back to. It’s our base camp.

It’s the place we spend most of our time, away from work.

And the kitchen is a vital part of our home life.

It is the beating heart of the home.

The Kitchen is The Hub of the Home

Gone are the days of the kitchen merely being the area where food is prepared and cooked.

The kitchen is a veritable hub of the modern home.

It’s a meeting place, a social space, and a lot more besides.

Luxury in our Lives

We all crave a little bit of luxury in our lives and if there’s one space in the home where we truly deserve that taste of luxury, surely it is in the kitchen?

That’s why a luxury kitchen is so appealing.

And your dream kitchen is not out of reach.

Some dreams do come true!

Of course, the most modern and futuristic kitchen styles aren’t the only type of luxury kitchen on the market.

If you want to opt for a classic style of cabinet, there are plenty more traditional styles and designs to choose from.

‘Traditional’ certainly doesn’t have to mean ‘old-fashioned’.

A luxury kitchen can suit all tastes.

The Classic Shaker Kitchen

When you see the superb craftsmanship of the likes of the classic Shaker Kitchens, you will be blown away by the end result.

The famous Shaker-style kitchen door may have been born out of minimalist and functional thinking, but the quality of the craftsmanship has never been in doubt. The instantly recognisable panelled Shaker cabinetry has been an inspiration to kitchen designers and homeowners alike for centuries, and the contemporary variations on the classic theme: Modern Shaker and Signature Smooth Shaker definitely create a luxurious feel in any space.

What is the Golden Rule for Kitchen Design?

Choosing a luxury kitchen isn’t just about the quality of the worktops, the colour and finish of the cabinets, or whether the kitchen looks like it is straight out of a showroom or a glossy home improvement magazine.

No, luxury is something to be lived, not just looked at.

After all, a kitchen is for living.

Therefore, if you are designing a bespoke kitchen from scratch, you need to do more than merely select a beautiful colour scheme.

The Layout of a Kitchen is Important

The Kitchen Triangle Rule – a design principle that dictates that the cook in the kitchen should be able to move unimpeded between the three main points of the kitchen: cooker, fridge and sink – is still widely used by architects and kitchen designers alike.

It’s true that the role of the kitchen has evolved over the last few decades. To this end, some might argue that the triangle principle is outdated. However, ensuring that your kitchen has an efficient and effective layout that suits your lifestyle needs is still of paramount importance.

For many homeowners, a kitchen island has become a way of creating a luxurious feel for their kitchen.

An island creates a statement and becomes a genuine focal point for the kitchen. It also serves as the hub of the space overall.

Final Thoughts

Ultimately, the term ‘luxury kitchen’ will have different meanings and connotations to different people.

For a few, it will mean spending the most money possible on the most exclusive and expensive materials and brands – and if you have the money to do this and it’s what you want, go for it!

For most of us, our definition of ‘luxury’ is slightly more realistic!

But the good news is that luxury can be affordable. It depends on individual tastes and preferences, but with Kitchen Warehouse cabinets and doors, you can be assured that high quality materials and craftsmanship will have been used to create every single piece of kitchen furniture.

You can also be sure that everything will be incredibly stylish.
