Are you someone with a culinary bend of mind or simply love to cook and feed your family and friends? If the answer is yes, then having a luxury kitchen in your home can make a world of difference for you. From custom-fitted drawers and shelving to outdoor cooking areas—luxury kitchens come with a plethora of options.

1. Smart Appliances
A luxury kitchen is incomplete without top-of-the-line smart appliances. Fitting your kitchen with smart appliances will not only make cooking easy but also add a visual appeal to your space. Smart appliances come in all forms from small things like toasters, automatic mixers, and coffee makers, all the way to the main appliances like refrigerators and microwaves.
All of these high-tech appliances are designed to make your life easier, and with their clean designs and superior technology, they are a must-have item in your luxury home.
2. Drawer Dishwasher
While dishwashers are an absolute necessity, sometimes they stick out amongst all the lovely wooden cabinetry.
The solution is simple and brilliant—put them in drawers. Use multiple drawers for luxe dishwashers and use them to store your pots and pans when the washer isn't running. Drawer-style dishwashers help you conceal the dishwasher, take up less space than a traditional one, and—thanks to smaller loads—are more energy efficient.
3. Chef Grade Stove and Range
A cook needs their tools to be at the top of their craft and what can be better than having a chef-grade stove and range? They work faster, work more efficiently, and help you save energy consumption which can lower your monthly bill.
Fitting your kitchen with double ranges and ovens is also a good idea, especially when you want to cook up gourmet dishes for your loved ones.
4. Walk-in Pantry
Having a place for everything is an essential requirement for a luxury kitchen. The last thing you want when you get home from the store is too much food and not enough places to put them.
One of the ways to achieve that level of organization is by creating a walk-in pantry. This will allow you to find space for all your cooking essentials and make it easy for you to find things when needed. Have your pantry fitted with shelves and drawers as per your need to up the luxury quotient.
5. Custom Shelving
One of the marks of a luxury kitchen is having custom-designed and manufactured shelving installed. You can go with the material of your choice and have additional features like roll-out surfaces and corner shelves created to fit your unique kitchen.
Custom shelving helps you make smarter use of all of your available space, can look great, and will help give your kitchen more storage space.
Proper illumination of the kitchen is essential, it sets the tone that you desire by putting lights in various places like overhead, pendants, and under the cabinet fixtures to add that extra bit of oomph to your space.
If you use smart lights, you can make use of dimming and color changes to drastically change the atmosphere of the kitchen depending on the situation. You can make it brighter and more lively when you cook and warmer when you entertain.
7. Outdoor Kitchen Area
This is a bonus feature that, if added, will become your favorite place in the home.
Having an outdoor area to cook and entertain your guests is a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather of Southwest Florida without giving up the luxuries of an indoor space.
Alternatively, you can have glass sliding panels on one wall of your kitchen. These can be designed to open to a deck area, thus giving an illusion of bringing the outside in, especially during the warmer months of the year. Having such a kitchen area will make your evening parties particularly a hit amongst your guests or create a cozy space for you to relax with your family.
