Luxury kitchen designs rely on sleek surfaces, like stainless steel and black marble countertops, to complement a minimalist design. For example, cherry wood cabinets are often paired with dark flooring options, white countertops, and stainless steel appliances and accents, like drawer handles. Combine that overall sophisticated design with some fun kitchen items, and you'll have yourself a luxury kitchen.

One interesting idea for a luxury kitchen is a built-in coffee bar. This addition would be especially fun for the coffee aficionado who can rattle off stats about different roasting styles and brewing methods. Create a coffee bar using high-end appliances, like a state-of-the-art coffee pot and espresso machine, complete with other necessities, such as a pour-over tool and French press. Keep various types of coffee, espresso, sweeteners and mugs on hand to give the space a real coffee-bar feel.

Another fun idea for a luxury kitchen is a brick oven, a perfect addition for the baker who enjoys making bread, pizza, rolls and other fresh goods. Wood-fired ovens can fit in many large kitchen areas and can be an especially interesting luxury item for the homeowner who loves to entertain.

No matter the luxury kitchen design you choose, the key is to splurge on an item you wouldn't otherwise deem "necessary." These additions can take a traditional kitchen from simple to luxury in no time.
