If you and your family enjoy cooking, then you need a spacious and stylish kitchen. Gourmet kitchens focus on the love of cooking and food, which makes them easy to use. Here is what you need to create a gourmet kitchen at home.

Open floor plan

An open floor plan makes it easier for you to move around in the kitchen, from the prep counter to the sink, to the stove. Entertaining is also much more fun because you can talk with your guests as you cook.

Spacious island

A large kitchen island is a necessity in gourmet kitchens. You need an area to prepare your food and entertain a few guests as you cook. Consider adding a prep sink on your island to reduce your trips to sink. Also, remember to install power outlets where you can plug in small appliances like food processors, blenders, and mixers.

High-end appliances

Gourmet kitchens are characterised by top-of-the-line appliances. You will need to add a gas range, double oven, a large refrigerator, and a dishwasher. Although electric stoves heat up faster, gas gives you more control over the cooking temperature. To make your kitchen look more luxurious, go for stainless steel appliances.


When creating a gourmet kitchen, you have to be very intentional about storage. It should be accessible and well organised. If you do not have a pantry, add open shelving in the unused areas of your kitchen. Decant your spices and oils in stylish jars and add labels for a more aesthetically pleasing look.

Easy to clean surfaces

When choosing your floors, countertops, and splashback, opt for materials that are easy to clean and maintain. Quartz is preferable for countertops because it is durable and stain-resistant. For the splashback, you can use glass or acrylic. Glass kitchen splashbacks are impenetrable to grease, water, and bacteria, and not to mention very stylish. Their light-reflecting capabilities also make small kitchens appear bigger.
