Motion sensor faucets
Replace the conventional faucets with touch less tap ware for a more convenient and hygienic washing experience. The motion sensor in these modern taps will have water streaming with just a wave of your hands and stop flowing with another hand wave. Cool, isn’t it?
Amp up your kitchen ventilation
Upgrade your kitchen ventilation with stainless steel exhaust hoods from Martin Stainless Steel for a professional-looking kitchen setup. If you love the clinical feel of steel, then opt for benches and BBQ cabinets fitted with the material.
Widen the scope of your kitchen island
The kitchen island, apart from being a food prep counter, doubles up as the place for a heart-to-heart chat, a cosy dinner, or paying bills. All this while the soup is simmering away on the cooktop. Space accommodating, widen this multipurpose space for additional sitting and an overall grand feel.
Combining indoors with the outdoors
Remodel one of the kitchen walls to fit in French doors that lead to a clean, green backyard — an ideal space to host big gatherings. This will be the perfect transition from the indoor kitchen to the outdoor living space while adding comfortable air to the ambience and a luxurious feel at the same time.
Flaunt your collections
Do you have an enviable collection of wine? Invest in a sophisticated see-through wine cellar in the kitchen to impress your guests and also get easy access to your collection while entertaining them. Not just wine, this idea works great for most collectibles.
Backlit glass cabinets
Swap the dated cabinets with backlit glass-door ones and feel your heart swell with pride seeing the heirloom china, champagne flutes, and dainty wine glasses take their place of pride in them.
Apart from the under-cabinet task lighting for the regular chores, install a group of pendant lights over the sitting area, accent lights to highlight design features or a single prominent focal piece like a chandelier to level up the lavish feel of your kitchen.
Nothing spells luxury like golden accents. Create a bold look with cabinets fitted with golden pulls, or add a touch of gold to the chairs and bar-stools. Your options are unlimited.
