What’s hot in luxury Real Estate? Here in Sonoma County #1 is multiple dwellings, and the #2 luxury amenity is an open kitchen that flows into, and is a part of an open living space.
While luxury trends are not always the same across the country, here in Sonoma County we like our kitchens not only flowing into the living space of the home, we like them easily accessible to the outdoors as indoor/outdoor entertaining is pure Sonoma Style™. Using doors, slide through windows or Nana Window Walls, there is always an easy access from the kitchen to the great outdoors. This can often alleviate the need for a full other outdoor kitchen.
If you’ve been looking for homes here in Sonoma County, you know that many of them need to be completely renovated. So getting to help my clients not only find their perfect home, but then redesign it to their personal specifications is a delight. The first place we usually start in is with the kitchen.
And, the kitchen is often the largest investment of turning a fixer upper into the perfect place to hang out in, and Entertain Sonoma Style™. Since it is where everyone hangs out, shouldn’t it be a part of the main living space?
Sometimes, like in old world Europe, the dining room is an integral part of the kitchen, and used for both dining on, as well as used as the modern day island space to prep food and hang around.
One of the newest trends in kitchens is no upper cabinets at all. These kitchens normally have some kind of pantry, but the central view is made up of an interesting range and hood, plus a great outdoor view.
When it comes right down to it, the kitchen really is the heart of the home. And making it easy to live in is what it’s all about when we create that perfect home, Sonoma Style™.
