Golf Club Estates at Heritage Creek Offers Hot Kitchen Design Trends

Tuesday, November 09, 2010 / Mignatti Companies

A kitchen is more than a room in which to prepare meals. It’s a highly personal space where families gather, relax and entertain. . “Think about how you most efficiently utilize your kitchen space and how many guests you usually accommodate — then design accordingly.” That is the advice of Marie Higgins, ASP, sales associate and accredited home staging professional for Mignatti Companies’ Golf Club Estates at Heritage Creek luxury home community in Bucks County.


With the holidays fast approaching and more attention being paid to overall design, quality and functionality, Higgins shares three essential kitchen design trends to help homebuyers create a beautiful and efficient space.


Don’t Overlook the Basics: The first things to consider when building a kitchen, says Higgins, are the appliances. These primary tools affect everyone from the frozen-food kings and queens to those with a more sophisticated culinary flair. Golf Club Estates offers GE® Profile appliances as standard in all of its kitchens, embracing the brand’s clean, contemporary look and high functionality. GE® Monogram and Viking appliances are available appliance upgrades. Higgins advises those building a dream kitchen to research and select quality appliances with strong brand track records. “Of everything in your kitchen, you’ll have your appliances the longest,” said Higgins.


Take Your Cabinets Seriously: Cabinets are the dominant visual element of a kitchen and set the room’s overall tone and style. While some trends have come and gone, other designs are timeless. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, 80 percent of all cabinets purchased continue to be wood finishes. Oak, maple and cherry remain in the top tier, and Golf Club Estates offers all three, with oak as standard in each kitchen. “Select cabinetry that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Wood finishes are classic and will keep your kitchen looking stylish for years to come,” Higgins notes.



Consider Style and Functionality: While islands are wonderful, it’s important to thoughtfully consider their use, notes Higgins. Will the island serve primarily as a workspace or a gathering space? A longer-style center island, an available option in some of the Golf Club Estates designs, provides more seating space and better accommodates a gathering for a meal, a glass of wine or just an impressive conversation space. Others prefer the island as a workspace, in which case adding a stainless steel vegetable sink might be an ideal marriage of style and function.


For those in the market for a new home, Golf Club Estates offers  a luxurious kitchen with GE® Profile appliances (oven, cooktop, dishwasher and microwave), granite countertops and oak cabinets as standard in each of the neighborhood’s nine home designs. A number of kitchen packages are available for homebuyers looking for an array of luxury features.
