Luxury Kitchen Designs That Feature Waterworks

Even though most of us will spend a huge chunk of our evenings in the living room relaxing after a long day the most well used and well-loved space in a home is actually in the kitchen. There is something about being in the kitchen and having a place where everyone comes together to share a meal. Designing a kitchen that is functional yet has everything you have ever envisioned is a little more complex because of all the designing options you may come across.  Here are a few of our favorite luxury kitchen designs that feature waterworks that we think will inspire you to want to upgrade your current kitchen décor.

Rose Gold

Gray is a great color to pair with rose gold accessories. In fact. consider using multiple different shades of gray to get the most out of this color combination. Having them paired together will bring out the softer shades of gray and the richer gold tones in rose gold.

Rose gold is not only a staple and trend in jewelry this season it is also a luxury metal to have in your kitchen. Consider having a rose gold kitchen sink faucet combined with marble countertops for the ultimate contrast that works well with numerous different kitchen decorative elements. You may want to keep the rest of your décor a bit more-simple to give your rose gold faucets the spotlight.

Marble

marble ktichen 2 Luxury Kitchen Designs That Feature Waterworks
The great thing about marble is that it looks great anywhere it is placed. It appears luxurious, rich in color, and no two marble pieces are ever the same. With that being said surrounding your faucet with a marble countertop brings out the beauty of your faucet design.

Marble has always been a top favorite for the kitchen and when it comes to luxury kitchen designs it does not stay behind. The reason why marble is so popular is because it appears as rich and luxurious as it really is. Pair marble countertops with a rich, deep tone kitchen faucet for a bold contrast that immediately upgrades your kitchen style.

Double Sinks

Having two sinks just makes sense which is the beauty of it. There are numerous benefits to have double sinks which is why we love this idea. Plus let’s not forget you can always upgrade your sinks and make them as modern as you would like. If you decide to go the marble routine for your kitchen use two or more different types of marble for a trendy twist. 

There is something very luxurious about having double sinks in your kitchen. Plus, let’s not forget it extremely useful as well. Double sinks allow you to have more space for washing your hands, handling kitchen necessities, and much more. Have two double sinks one in front of one another or right next to each other for the ultimate upscale look and feel.

Kitchen Island Waterworks

Having a kitchen island is great. It is multifunctional and you can customize it to your liking at any moment. If you are not a fan of having a unique faucet on your kitchen island go for a more traditional look this will give you a luxurious take that is also traditional and classic.

Kitchen islands have become quite popular over the years. One of the main reasons being we have become more aware of how convenient kitchen islands can be. Having a kitchen island with a unique water faucet can give the room the modern yet traditional feel you may seek. Due to this, let’s not forget it also brings together your entire kitchen décor with an elegant feel.

All White

Having a white faucet is a very contemporary move because it is not traditional at all. However, it works extremely well when you are working with an all-white palette. You can always go the traditional route and use silver. Nevertheless, an all-white palette with a white faucet will make the neutral impact you seek. 

Take it up a notch and have a completely white kitchen, including your kitchen waterworks. The idea is to have a crisp, clean kitchen with little to no color. Having a white faucet can be a bit intimidating, but it works beautifully against an all-white decorated kitchen space. If white is a bit intimating, consider using silver instead. It is still subtle enough to have in a white kitchen bit with just the right amount of flair.

Unique Faucet

Although, having a unique faucet may be the last thing you think about when decorating your kitchen. It can help brighten up the space and give you that trendy touch you need. Consider using a faucet that offers two different faucets in one including an extender handle. The extender handle is functional and trendy. 

Instead of having a traditional faucet, consider having a faucet with an intricate touch to it. To create the intricate aspect with a kitchen faucet, you can choose a faucet with a unique shape, color, style, or even texture. The key is to have a staple piece in the kitchen that adds an irreplaceable effect. Having this feature will add a contemporary twist to your kitchen space.

Black

The elegance a black faucet adds to a kitchen is indescribable. Its elegant, put together, and trendy. On top of that, it is also a gorgeous addition to any decor you may currently have. Keep it fresh by only having a few black pieces surrounding your faucet. This will keep your eyes directly on the all black detailing. 

If you already have a well put together kitchen and simply want to add to your kitchen space a twist of luxury and modern a black faucet and waterworks will do the trick. Having a black faucet adds an elegant appeal to your kitchen. There is a richness that a dark hue such as black will create in the kitchen space. This is especially true when it is paired against a neutral palette. The black hue will stand out and create a bold contrast between the two.

Gold Handle

Golden handles are great if you want an understated metallic feel. However, if you want to go all out go for a fully golden faucet. The bold statement of having a golden faucet will bring out all the rich tones in the room. Allow the rest of the room a calming yet neutral hue the ultimate balance between the two. 

Having metallic tone kitchen waterworks can sometimes be a bit much. However, having gold handles can be exactly what you need for a metallic touch. Metallic is bold and trendy. Therefore, having bits and pieces of a metallic hue brightens up the space as well as adds a modern beauty to it.

Matching Pieces

Create the luxurious feel that you seek by matching your faucet to your appliances. Doing so adds that little extra touch of trendy that simply works well together. This is especially true if you are working with a colorful palette or using more then one hue in the space.

The idea is to have all of your appliances including oven, refrigerator, and coffee machine one color. Whether that is sterling silver, white, black, or even gold the option is up to you. Having all of your pieces match one another adds a well put together appearance that is also very trendy. This look works well in every kitchen, regardless of the décor you currently have. The best aspect about this is you will not have to change your entire décor to get this look simply match all of your appliances.

Bronze

Bronze is a great statement color because it is rich, and bold without being black. If you do not want to go with a fully black faucet bronze is an excellent option. The trick is to have other bronze items in the same space in order to bringthe entire decor together.

Although we have mentioned dark hues bronze is a must-have color. Bronze works great because of how rich and luxurious it looks and feels. Have a bronze faucet and kitchen waterworks for the richness you seek. The right shade of bronze can add a hint of color into the space while still being understated.

To conclude, it may be time to give your kitchen the ultimate waterworks upgrade. Which of these ideas do you want to include in your kitchen? Please let us know in the comments below.

Texture works great in a bohemian space because it adds visual appeal. Visual appeal works great for a bedroom that has a bohemian contrast. Add texture in rugs, chairs, and linen for the best results. You can also add it with a textured chair. 

When it comes to bedroom décor the first thing you may consider is adding comfortable items. Items that will make the space feel cozy. However, for the bohemian feel, you want to add different textures. Skip the cotton only rule and add fringe, knitted comforters, and/or a shaggy rug. The different texture will give the room that easy going vibe that a bohemian style exuberates.

Choose a blue that has tints of gray for the upscale feel you want. If you want a brighter take on this look choose a pastel blue instead.

Kitchen cabinets have come a long way from where they used to be when it comes to color. They typically were beige or white always. Now we are experimenting with color a lot more. Add a grayish blue shade to your kitchen cabinets for a softer taken on decorating with blue.

Bold Is Best in Pattern

Can’t decide on what blue pattern to add to a room? The answer is simple choose stripes. Vertical stripes are great for any room because of how they elongate the space which causes the room to appear larger. Use dark hues to create a contrast when it is paired with light tones. 

Blue patterns are great because of how neutral they can turn out to be. Even though blue is a powerful color when it is mixed with other shades it takes a softer twist. Choose to add a bold patterned wallpaper in your living room or even have a patterned blue rug for a rich twist on a classic color scheme.

Keep the rest of the room as neutral as possible to give the walls the focus they deserve. You may even want to add little accents around the room in the same shade as the wall. 

If you are in need of a color change in your bedroom consider the color blue. Lighter shades of blue work great with neutral furniture. Meanwhile darker shades pair great with dark furniture. The contrast helps create an expansive feel to the room.

Bring on the Cushions

Take the beautiful blue hue outdoors as well. Add blue cushions to your patio set for a vibrant feel that adds to your outdoor appeal. Pair the blue cushion hues with matching umbrella for a beautiful touch. This looks best on dark tone patio sets as it causes the color to truly stand out. 

A touch of blue can be fun, especially if you are working with a soft color palette. Add blue cushions to your dining table for a little-hidden twist that you will enjoy. They are easy to pair with other colors and will bring a vibrant take on a neutral dining table.

Touch of Vintage

It will bring the entire focus to that specific space in the kitchen. Which in return will make your kitchen appear larger and more put together.

Having a blue kitchen island will add a pop of color right where you need it.

Mix and Match

Do not be afraid of navy blue hues. In fact, navy blue works very well in any room as it is the perfect rich shade to provide elegance while still being softer than the color black. Pair navy blue walls with orange chairs for a beautiful modern contrast. When working with this contrast the brighter the orange shade the better. 

To many individuals, the color blue is considered a statement color. However, we consider it a “works well with an extensive amount of colors” type of color. The reason for this is blue can work well with almost every color in the palette including statement colors such as orange. Blue works beautifully when mixed with orange because it makes the orange shade stand out even more. Mix and match your shades of blue with accent shades of orange for a pop of boldness that does not change the look of your home instead it enhances it.

French Glamour

Powder blue walls paired with gray accents are great for a glamorous twist that is still modern and subtle. Mix and match darker shades of gray and pair it with deeper shades of blue. Doing so will enhance the appeal of these two tones together. If you have extra room add a blue bench for a pop of color.

That’s right the color blue can also be glamorous. Pair powder blues with beige or gray to add a French twist in any room. This works especially well in a bedroom. The reason being when paired with soft neutral shades it creates a relaxing space that also feels rich and glamorous. Add a blue sitting bench to your bedroom for an extra dose of blue.

Cheerful Walls

Bold walls make a huge difference in any area that they are placed in. If you really want to make a bold statement consider using a similar hue all over the space with your furniture. Contemplate having blue couches, accent chairs, and/or stools to bring the entire decor together.

Go bold or go home when you are decorating with blue hues. Add a vibrant shade to a darker room to create a modern take. Consider turquoise walls paired with dark tones. This will add a cheerful wall into the space, giving you a focal point right on your walls.

Just a Hint

Bleu sofas are refreshing. They are soft to look at while still commanding the space. They provide an elegant feel that is still very feminine. Choose a darker shade for a bold pop of color and a lighter shade for a subtle twist that is not so subtle at all. The different shades of blue will give your room a twist of color your guests may not be expecting. 

A blue sofa is the perfect hint of blue any room could use. It takes a classic color and makes it the main focus of the room. Pair it with boldly patterned cushions for a modern feel or pair it with neutral tones for a classic look that is still fun and memorable.

Beachy Elegance

Your dining table does not need to be large for the blue chairs to make an impact. Regardless of the size of the table bleu chairs make a huge impact where they are placed as it completely calls the attention of anyone who enters the room. When working with light-toned tables lighter shades of blue work best as it doesn’t overpower the table.

Many homeowners like the idea of decorating with shades of blue because it has a beach or nautical feel to it. Add a beachy vibe to your dining room by changing your chairs and getting blue ones.

Glitter the stem and keep the rest of the pumpkin as neutral as possible. Doing this will still give you the natural pumpkin feel while being modern and elegant.

Matte Blue

Matte blue pumpkins are all the rage this season especially as centerpieces for your fall decor tables. Take them outdoors and place them with other unpainted pumpkins for a striking contrast between the two.
