Stylish Kitchen Additions You Didn’t Know You Needed Until Now

If you’re remodeling and revamping your kitchen we know that you’ve spent hours looking at trendy backsplashes, marble countertops, and perfect kitchen tiles. Those are the things that are going to give your kitchen style on the surface, but have you thought about what’s going to make it unique?


We’ve been inspired by these seven luxury kitchen additions, and we can’t stop thinking about them. The best part about these additions is that they’re trendy, chic, and make your life easier. Having a kitchen that looks great and makes meal time simple sounds like serious bragging rights to us. 

Wine Storage

Is your wine taking up space in the fridge? What you need is a kitchen island wine cooler.  A kitchen island wine cooler is great for hosting, or to assure that when you get home from work you’ll have a bottle perfectly chilled and in reach.

If you don’t have a kitchen island, have no fear, you can fit a wine cooler into the counter too!

But what about the reds? For that, you’re going to want to look into a wine wall. A wine wall is chic and impressive. If you have the wine already, you should show off your good taste!

Hidden Pantry

We know those kitchen cupboards can fill up fast, between buying everyone’s favorite cereal and stocking up on canned food it feels like there’s never enough space. Now, imagine a cupboard that opens up into an entire room… I’ll give you a moment to get excited about all that extra dedicated pantry space!

These sinks look like your average kitchen sink but they have a unique feature, they’re motion censored!  They turn on with a simple tap or touch. Not only do these faucets have a simple but modern look that complements any kitchen, they make cooking and clean up easy.

Planning a kitchen is no small feat. After you’ve decided on your specifics and have your perfect look it’s time to start thinking about what you really want. Hosting spectacular dinners, enjoying family time, or even a solo glass of wine is what having a kitchen is all about.
