Turning Your Kitchen into a Gourmet Kitchen
Are you dreaming of turning your kitchen into a gourmet kitchen? This is a major renovation, so there are some things you need to think about before launching into this project. A gourmet kitchens needs lots of functional space. Most regular kitchens are not large enough to become a true gourmet kitchen, so look around for space that can be “annexed” from the surrounding rooms.
A Standard Gourmet Kitchen
These are the major features of many gourmet kitchens:
- Pro-series appliances
- 48″ refrigerator/freezer
- 6-burner gas range
- double ovens
- 2 dishwashers
- Heavy-duty range hood ventilation.
- A large island with prep sink and ample countertop space.
- A large walk-in pantry or built-in pantry with pull out shelving.
Not All Gourmet Kitchens Are Alike
Your gourmet kitchen must meet your needs. If you are a “chef” you will need some different things than a “baker” will need. For example, a baker may want a marble countertop that is 30” high, and a chef may need a pot-filler faucet over the cooktop.
If you have lots of “machines,” you may need a special storage area or a butler’s pantry to store these appliances. (Think of Sous Vide machines, dehydrators, blender/food processors, air-fryers, coffee makers, waffle makers, etc.)
If someone else cooks with you, you will need more room and perhaps more task areas. If you entertain in the kitchen, you’ll need a place for people to mingle and sit without being in your way as you cook.
