Aiming at top-of-the-range kitchens to furnish your home means giving yourself a great gift. The excellence in design and quality of these products makes them a choice that lasts over time and maintains its prestige, even after decades.
The kitchens of the most prestigious brands on the market are true emblems of interior design. But how do you distinguish a top-of-the-range model? And what are the distinctive features of such prestigious and unique solutions?
When we talk about top-of-the-range kitchens we are talking about products of the highest quality. But what exactly is meant by this expression? The quality of luxury kitchens manifests itself in various aspects. First and foremost, the materials used for the furniture are of high quality, but so are the design and stylistic solutions adopted by the manufacturers.
Installing a high-end or very high-end kitchen means having durable furniture whose design retains its appeal over time. At the same time, the kitchen is designed in such a way as to guarantee excellent functionality, from every point of view.
Brands that produce top of the range kitchens also invest a lot in research, to select the most suitable materials to create solid and elegant designs. This is especially true when talking about contemporary and innovative style kitchens, in which the worktops are made of materials that are the result of technological innovation. But we can also speak of research in traditional kitchens, when new paints or innovative treatments are used for woodworking.
Another aspect that distinguishes top-of-the-range kitchens from lesser kitchens is the craftsmanship of the production. High-end kitchens are usually made by experienced carpenters, cabinetmakers and craftsmen. The result of employing these professionals is kitchens made with great care in every detail, and with inimitable elements of customisation.
High-end and top-of-the-range kitchens are available in a variety of styles and can satisfy the needs of those who wish to furnish their homes in a classic manner as well as those who prefer a more contemporary style. In both cases, solid, durable and aesthetically pleasing materials are used. As well as state-of-the-art technology.
In traditional top-of-the-range kitchens, the starring role is played by solid wood. This material gives the furniture not only a robust look, but also an elegant and cosy feel. In contemporary top-of-the-range kitchens, wood is often combined with other materials: among the most common are metal – steel and aluminium are very common – or innovative materials such as technical ceramics or mixes of natural stones and resins.
As well as choosing the style that best reflects your own tastes, it is equally important to carefully plan the layout of the kitchen so that the arrangement of furniture and appliances is harmonious and functional.
A top-of-the-range kitchen is usually made up of modular solutions, which can be installed rather freely to find the ideal layout for the room. Both modern and classic kitchens can have a linear layout or a central island. Designers have a fairly free hand in this regard.
Thanks to designer kitchens, you can give your home a distinctive and recognisable look. These kitchens are handcrafted and often made to measure. Many of the top-of-the-range models are an expression of Made in Italy, which represents an internationally recognised seal of quality for the excellence of the workmanship and materials.
However, Italy is not the only country to boast great experience in design. France, for example, can also count on excellence in producing kitchens with an unmistakable style. La Cornue’s designer kitchens are one example. The recognisable style of this brand is suitable for homes furnished in a classic style, but also for more contemporary and design-oriented projects. Oven and hob are the fulcrum around which the rest of the furniture revolves, made with modular and composable solutions. The availability of various finishes and colours makes it possible to create thousands of different configurations and, therefore, allows you to find the perfect solution for the specific needs of your project.
When you decide to furnish your home with a top of the range kitchen, you are guaranteed that both the materials and the components of the various elements are of high quality and long-lasting. What makes a kitchen unforgettable is the overall harmony in the room. For this reason, high-end furniture should be accompanied by the right appliances, accessories and complements, which bring out the line and unique characteristics of the chosen kitchen furniture.
