When designing your perfect kitchen, the possibilities are endless. There are so many features in a kitchen to take into consideration, but in addition to the basics, think about adding some standout pieces and appliances to really elevate the space. Here are just a few ideas to get your kitchen inspiration going:

Coffee Corner

Rising in popularity over the last few years, a coffee corner is one way to make your kitchen more luxurious. Gone are the days of cabinets cramped with mugs—instead, install a shelf or two above the coffee area and keep them on display. Install cabinets and even a mini fridge to make the corner a fully functional coffee bar.

Double Oven

Prepare double the meals in half the time! With a double oven, you can cook two dishes at a time, perfect for entertaining. Choose between a stacked, double-wall oven, or one that’s side by side. Either way, a double oven is a standout piece that’s sure to impress.

Statement Island

The kitchen island shouldn’t just blend in with the rest of the design—instead, use it as a focal point. Using different colors for the cabinets or choosing a unique shape will turn it into a statement piece. Add comfortable stools or chairs that match the aesthetic, and you’re ready to entertain.

Wine Fridge

A wine fridge is a great appliance to integrate with a kitchen island or lower cabinetry. Perfect for wine lovers, your collection is in an all-in-one, easy-to-access place. Countertop wine racks can often look messy and take up a lot of room, so a built-in wine fridge is the perfect solution.

Warming Drawer

Because these features are small, they’re better at keeping food warm than if you were to put it in the oven. If you have guests over often, you can start the food prep earlier knowing that the food will stay warm. It’s also great for families with differing schedules, such as a spouse who sometimes has to work late.

Pull Out Cabinets

Rather than dealing with clutter on the counters or in drawers, opt for kitchen pullout shelves that are meant for organizing. These also save you from rummaging around in cabinets and drawers, making it easier to access the items you need. Pull out pantries have also become a popular addition in recent years, especially for frequently used ingredients.
