Did you know that the average upscale kitchen remodel could cost $100,000 or even more? You certainly want to have the kitchen of your dreams when spending that much money. You should end up with a stylish kitchen that not only fits your needs, but also increases the value of your home. The good news is that there is a plethora of design concepts that will accomplish this. For example, you can have a multipurpose island installed. Designers have been utilizing kitchen islands to take up space in sizeable kitchens for years.

However, the role of the kitchen island has been recently expanded. First and foremost, they are getting even larger in luxury kitchens. Most islands now serve as a casual seating area for eating, drinking, and relaxing. Kitchen islands can contain cabinets that are filled with kitchen appliances and devices such as wine coolers. Kitchen islands are even starting to blend into other rooms of the home as extended living spaces. They are perfect for incorporating the popular open kitchen concept to your residence. Another upscale kitchen remodeling idea is based around the smart home concept.

Smart home technology has fast become a standard in high-end luxury homes. It provides you with the ability to control many of your household systems, appliances, and electronics through the tap of a button on your smartphone or tablet. For example, you can set the temperatures in your home, view the security cameras, change the lighting, and open or close the window shades with smart technology.  You don’t even need to be home to do these things. Why not take it one step further and run your kitchen with smart technology? You can purchase smart appliances that will make your life easier.

For example, there are smart refrigerators that track your groceries and alert you when you’re running low on particular items. There are smart ovens that you can turn on or off from remote locations. Of course, you can incorporate smart elements from other rooms into your kitchen as well. For example, it’s always nice to have smart shades and smart lights in your luxury kitchen. Our final upscale kitchen remodeling idea is to install a bigger and brasher backsplash. It’s the perfect way to add some character into your kitchen design. Consider using the same material as your countertops.

In essence, it will create a bold focal point. However, you can go in the exact opposite direction and use an entirely different material. Your backsplash certainly doesn’t need to match your countertop. You can utilize copper, granite, glass, marble, stainless steel, tile, wood or quartz to name a few. The backsplash doesn’t need to stop part way up the wall anymore. When the backsplash runs up the entire wall to the ceiling it certainly makes for a dramatic design.
