1. Gourmet Kitchens
Gourmet kitchens are desired by both home chefs and those who like to entertain in their homes. Before planning what yours will look like, be sure to ask yourself: what kind of dishes do you like to prepare? How many people cook in your house at any given time? What is the primary function of your kitchen? These questions can help you prepare and plan for the amenities that will help you design the kitchen of your dreams.
Gourmet kitchens often include include:
- Superior quality, top-of-the-range appliances with industrial-strength ventilation. This can include appliances such as a: professional-grade range, double oven, warming drawer, dishwasher drawer, convection microwave, and microwave drawer
- Plenty of storage, including a walk-in pantry
- Heavy-duty countertop materials such as Quartz. These are a great choice as they don’t require sealing, are less porous than natural stones and are more durable and stain resistant
- More than four times the amount of lighting than a regular kitchen. This includes task lighting which focuses light on specific work spaces in your kitchen
- 2 Island areas adding additional counter space
- Lighting below the toe kick
- Lighting above the cabinetry
- Multiple sinks for food prep and cleanup after a meal
- Full-height stone backsplash
- A spacious kitchen layout
Incorporating any of these additions to your kitchen will make your space more functional and easier to cook in. You won’t regret the additional time and thought you put into your kitchen as you use it daily.
2. Indoor Sport Courts

basketball or other sports, instead they can stay put and have friends over to play
