When you’re building your dream home and lavishing time and effort on getting every detail right there are some essentials for the kitchen that can turn the everyday into the amazing.
It goes without saying that precise, elegant cabinetry is at the core of the kitchen coupled with the best marble work surfaces, beautiful veneers, extraordinary metals and stunning glass. The island at the heart of the kitchen must be a show stopper, but what are the features, appliances and accessories that are essential to turn a premium kitchen into a super-premium kitchen?
1. Calcatta Oro Worktops
For centuries Calcatta Oro has been considered to be the finest marble in the world. A classic Italian White Marble with bright, creamy shades and subtle gold and grey colours running along the veins the finest examples are found in the Borghini quarry in the heart of the Apuan Alps.
Calcatta Oro looks stunning in sweeping expanses across the surfaces of contemporary and traditional styles of kitchens, bringing a classical finish rooted in centuries of history.
2. Wolf Range
Wolf ranges really are something to behold and make an impact as the impressively solid centrepiece to any luxury kitchen. Why chose Wolf over the other contenders? For starters each Wolf appliance is built to meet the unflinchingly high standards of professional chefs, ensuring precise control and the utmost quality every time. They also cater to every taste and preference, spanning gas, dual fuel, induction and steam models, and come in a range of modern and classic designs.
What we love too are the outstanding design touches including eye catching cobalt blue oven interiors, and stunning, chunky red knobs. Make no mistake Wolf Ranges are a serious piece of kitchen equipment sculpted in heavy gauge stainless steel and tested to perform beautifully through decades of heavy, daily use.
3. Gaggeneau Refrigeration
There is nothing more important than high quality refrigeration, but if it looks superb and comes with discreet features that can react to the most delicate and demanding of foods in an intelligent way, then it must be a Gaggeneau.
The Vario 400 series built-in modular landscape of refrigerators, freezers, fridge-freezers and wine climate cabinets can be combined to stunning effect. A cooling wall of appliances in near seamless stainless steel creates a truly grand architectural statement.
In any home where a love of fine wine is important a Gaggeneau Vario wine climate cabinet is a must have. Offering up to 3 independently controlled climate zones, depending on the correct temperature for your wines and with precise humidity control, vintages can be kept in precisely the right conditions. And with fully extendable bottle trays in oak and aluminium, the wine cabinets are designed to be admired.
4. BORA Professional Cooktop
We’ve blogged previously about our love of BORA, but we’ll say it again; if you’re creating a super-premium kitchen where everything is of the highest quality, where form and function combine to create a brilliant product then you have to install a BORA Professional 3.
At the leading edge of design, with innovative low volume downdraft extraction, simple cleaning, oversized cooking surfaces and minimalist design incorporating the most beautiful control dials the BORA Professional 3 is suited to the largest kitchens and the most creative cooks.
With BORA you’re installing a design statement coupled with a superb level of German engineering.
5. Quooker CUBE
Quooker are famous for their boiling water taps and it would be fair to say that we believe every home should have one, however what elevates the CUBE to the level of the extraordinary is its ability to transform the tap’s functionality.
In a unique innovation, the CUBE enables cold, boiling, chilled and sparkling water to all be dispensed from the one tap with the simple twist of a dial. The CUBE option saves time, water, energy and space and it means you never have to buy bottled water again. They look fantastic too with options in chrome, silver, brass and black that will enhance the finest kitchens.
What we love about them though is that they are just so extraordinarily cool!
