Transforming an Ordinary Kitchen into a Luxury One

Do you ever find it difficult to move around in your kitchen? Or do you find your kitchen too boring or old fashioned? If you find yourself poring over picture-perfect kitchen photos in magazines, then it is definitely time for you to have a remodeling done for your own kitchen. In order to get your dream kitchen, you have to be ready to spend some money, because smaller budgets will not give your kitchen the desired look.

Getting Stone Countertops

Granite or onyx countertops can be a little expensive, but will add that element of luxury to your kitchen. You will find many Malibu contractors who install these countertops for homes in Malibu, but you need to make sure that the contractors you choose know what they are doing. You don’t want to make a renovation only to find cracks in your countertops in a few years. Poor installation could do that to you. Make sure that the cabinets underneath the countertops are capable of supporting their weight. If you don’t want to spend too much, you may also consider granite overlays to your existing countertops.

Changing the Cabinets

If your cabinets are old, you might consider replacing them with ones that have soft close hinges so they are easier to open and close. If they are not very old, you might consider re-facing them, or installing luxury panel inserts.

Spicing Up the Kitchen Floor

There are many Malibu custom home builders who can bed in marble kitchen flooring for the ultimate luxurious feel. However, marble can be expensive, so you can also use floor tiles that look like marble. These will add an element of luxury to your kitchen without being too hard on your pocket. Also, if you want, you can get the builder to install floor heating for your luxury kitchen.

Other Factors

You might consider changing, replacing or adding other luxury factors to your kitchen like lighting or electric appliances. The lighting you install should improve the overall ambiance of the kitchen. You can install lights above or below your kitchen cabinets, up-lighting on your countertops, etc. You can also buy kitchen appliances with a stainless steel finish for a luxurious look. To make your kitchen more tech savvy, install docking stations for handheld accessories, mounted televisions and speakers in the wall panels.

On the whole, for the best kitchen remodel, remember to hire the best contractors who know what they are doing and will be able to do flawless installations for your kitchen. When it comes to reinventing your home, nothing but the best should do.
