A kitchen renovation project seems a like difficult endeavor because the first thing you might want to do is to install new countertops and bring in new appliances which can be too costly.
But you do not have to spend thousands of dollars on upgrading the beauty and functionality of your kitchen. There are plenty of simple adjustments that can transform your kitchen into a space that feels new and luxurious.
Interior fit out companies in Dubai share the following upgrades to boost the style and functionality of your kitchen for a luxury hotel feel.
- Touch-Sensitive Faucets
You have just finished breading the pork or chicken cutlets for your dinner. Time to for you to wash up! But instead of wiping your possibly pathological palms on the water handles, it would be nice to just tap your faucet using your arm and have the water stream down.Touch-sensitive faucets are indeed a luxury with a practical payoff since they are easier to clean and have fewer germs. Most models also come with manual handles so if you want to get hands-on, you can still do so.
- Hidden Power Outlets
Power outlets are crucial for a functional, luxurious kitchen. However, they can make your kitchen design unappealing. Small details like putting the power outlets inside drawers, under cabinets or behind hidden panels can help enhance the overall look and feel of your kitchen.
- Secret Compost Bin
Composting doesn’t just improve your garden but can also help reduce waste. But having a compost bin in your kitchen can make it unattractive.
A stainless steel system with a cover that can easily be enclosed into your countertop can be your best option. This does not just help you save space and make composting a lot easier but it is also an item that belongs in a luxury kitchen.
- Under-Cabinet Lighting
Under-cabinet lighting will make your culinary area more beautiful and usable. Under-cabinet will illuminate your workspace and make chopping, reading recipes, and other countertop-area work easier and safer.
Also, it adds mid-level and diffused ambient light to your entire room.
Aside from making improving the natural brightness of your kitchen, adding a skylight will also make the place airy. If your house allows it architecturally, this kitchen upgrade will let the light shine in.
Interior design experts say that the natural rays of the sun can add an extra dimension of brightness to the room.
- Steam Oven
Gone are the days when ovens are only used for baking. Steam ovens are becoming popular. Most offer the traditional baking option along with steam; however, its steaming function is the new thing.
Steaming is a healthier way to cook since it keeps more moisture with less oil and butter. Also, it can give you more flexibility when cooking.
- Eye-Catching Backsplash
An excellent way to give your kitchen that wow factor is to install an eye-catching backsplash. You do not have to go all-over with your attractive tile; by choosing a flashy look and just concentrating it in a focal area, such as over your stove, you can already get a bang for your money.
Consider opting for a funky mosaic, stainless steel tile, or metallic tiles because these can easily grab the attention of anyone who enters your kitchen.
- Cabinet Handles and Pulls
Cabinet handles and pulls can easily update your kitchen. So if your cabinets are age-neutral, give them a quick facelift by upgrading their handles. Remember though that when you have a handle with two screws before, you must replace it with a similar thing.If you use a handle with one screw, this can leave an unappealing, uncovered hole.
- Crown Molding
With a crown molding to finish off your cabinets so they meet the ceiling, you can make an epic difference when it comes to the value perception of your kitchen. It can be a huge difference-maker in how your space looks to you and your visitors.
- Hidden Appliances
It is essential for you to cover some (if not all) appliances using panels in order to integrate them into your cabinets. Most designers do this in kitchens with modern, minimalist designs so that the appliances won’t break the smooth flow of the room.
Another great option is to cover your appliances to blend in with your wooden cabinets to achieve a warmer look.
Give your home a luxury hotel feel by integrating these kitchen upgrades on your next renovation project. Consider working with reputable interior contractors and construction companies to ensure the success of your project.
