It’s the heart of the home and most used room, so you better love your kitchen. But in case you’re in the market for something with a more functional layout, extra space, chef-grade appliances or if you need some renovation inspiration — we’ve rounded up five kitchens worth drooling over.
Spacious. Sophisticated. Serene. The gourmet kitchen in this custom-built Craftsman truly delights all the senses. Feast your eyes on the immaculate design, with its bright white cabinets, natural oak open shelving and paneling – which elegantly conceal integrated Jenn-Air appliances – and grand statement island. Enjoy natural light and fresh air pouring in through the European-style tilt and turn windows, your favorite music piping in from the in-ceiling speakers, and the smell of coffee from your integrated Bosch espresso maker. For more formal gatherings in the dining room, you also have the luxury of an adjoining serving pantry.
Rich wood paneling, a stylish mosaic tile backsplash and garden views make this kitchen feel like a jewel box. Top-line appliances, including a Verona dual-oven range, and Caesarstone countertops elevate everything from daily food prep to special occasion cooking. French doors seamlessly connect an outdoor dining patio and beautifully landscaped yard for effortless entertaining — a rare gem in a market saturated with open-concept layouts.
If you prefer cooking and dining with a side of majestic mountain views, welcome to your dream kitchen. The open layout features near-floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the evergreen-blanketed vista of the Pacific Northwest. Of course, the interior is just as appealing. Crisp white custom millwork and high-end stainless steel appliances perfectly mix with the rustic hardwood floors and cozy fireplace in the adjacent living area. Nestled off to the side, there’s also a workspace and server’s pantry that leads to the formal dining room.
Between air fryers, espresso machines, pebble ice makers and standing mixers, countertop space is at a premium in most kitchens. Not this one. Balancing the crisp white cabinets and Viking Professional refrigerator, beautiful granite wraps around the space. The central island provides ample work surface for chopping, kneading and cooling — it also serves as the perfect place to lay out crudites and a charcuterie board for guests. And with double-stacked ovens, you’re ready for every holiday and dinner party.
This elegant Hilltop residence is an epicurean’s sanctuary and entertainer’s dream. Take a minute to savor this modern chef-inspired kitchen: the professional-grade Wolf range, the multiple Bosch dishwashers, the paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator, the expansive quartz waterfall island, the sleek custom cabinetry. Pocketed glass doors create a seamless flow to an outdoor oasis, complete with a fireplace and built-in barbecue – perfect when you crave some al fresco dining. You won’t be able to keep guests away, but the temperature-controlled wine room will ensure you can keep them in good spirits.
