Get the premium restaurant-quality appearance – even if you’re not a pro

In the efforts of showcasing their taste for luxury, homeowners aren’t turning to sprawling estates or impractical décor embellishments. They’re outfitting their current properties with the most premium professional kitchen décor their money can buy. That means designing a space so professional a Michelin-starred chef would be happy to cook there. And, in the case of the ultra luxury housing market, that is sometimes the case!

Whether you have the Benjamins necessary to make a full luxury transformation, or simply wish to upgrade your space to include a few professional kitchen décor features that are ultra functional and fashionable, there are a few key ways to “go pro” with your kitchen design.

Hosts and hostesses who know the luxury dinner party game, know that chaotic kitchen space is a real atmosphere killer. So, more people are taking a cue from “Downton Abbey” and investing in a butler’s pantry (sometimes referred to as a “scullery”). Not only does this space provide ample additional storage (so cabinets in the kitchen are impeccable), but also acts as a secondary cooking space. While you and your guests are enjoying a party, the food preparation, or caterers, are ensconced in an entirely different area.

If you’re not lucky enough to have the space for a scullery, then you’ll need to guarantee your kitchen is as hushed as the help. A stainless steel industrial range hood solves that issue easily. Though a fan can be housed in a custom wooden casing, to show off your professional cook credibility, let the stainless steel shine and pair it with all stainless steel built-in appliances, like a double French door fridge, powerful gas range and double ovens.

Stainless steel can also make an appearance in worktop surfaces of the professional kitchen décor style. However, to ensure the space doesn’t come off too cold, it’s best to keep it to the kitchen island only. On all worktops marble is the way to go. Its naturally cool and antibacterial properties make it the #1 surface for food preparation and when selected and installed correctly, it instantly adds that premium touch to a kitchen.

Though Carrara is the “no-brainer” choice for many homeowners, interior designers who are familiar with the premium professional kitchen market are encouraging people to consider other, more high-end marbles. Statuario marble for example, is a stunning and unique option when selected to showcase a one-of-a-kind pattern.

Use one, or use them all, the addition of any of these professional touches will give your kitchen the luxurious and professional look you crave.
