24 Instagram-Worthy Luxury Kitchen Design Ideas
If you’ve been scrolling through Instagram, you know — beautiful images of inspirational interior designs, especially kitchens, are all over the platform, giving you more and more remodel ideas with every click. Amazing colors and materials, chic lighting and sophisticated fixtures make these kitchens worth drooling over.
Dying to make your own kitchen Instagram-worthy? We’ve curated 24 luxury kitchen design ideas fit for Instagram, all highlighting our Watermark Designs fixtures which act as either a perfect accent or as the star of the show.
1. Install a Pot Filler
Luxurious, but also very useful, a pot filler is the kitchen detail you never knew you needed. Our Elan Vital collection wall-mounted pot filler, plus coordinating sink faucet and sprayer, take your kitchen’s utility up a notch.
2. Place a Large Island
Looking to make a statement? Install a kitchen island so big your entire family can pull up a seat! The modern vibe of this space had us at ‘hello’ — from the leather bar chairs to the schoolhouse pendants to the black pane windows to the wall-mounted pot filler — and the extra-large island acts as the perfect centerpiece.
3. Add a Bar
Your libations deserve their own area, don’t they? Cordon off a section of your kitchen as a bar, complete with storage, a sink and our Loft Collection faucet in Aged Brass.
4. Go Matte Black
Matte black fixtures in kitchens and baths are massively trending — why not go full force? Install a dramatic range hood in matte black, then complement it with lighting, cabinetry and fixtures. Our Elan Vital wall-mounted pot filler fits perfectly in this color scheme.
5. Make It Light and Bright
If matte black isn’t your thing, go opposite! Make your kitchen light and bright (and Instagram-worthy!) with bright white walls, cabinetry and furniture with loads of natural light pouring in. Sold exclusively through Rejuvenation, our West Slope kitchen faucet in Aged Brass adds a nice sparkle in this white kitchen design.
6. Use Greenery
Nothing is more Instagram-worthy than pretty, styled succulents in the home. Add a few to your kitchen windowsill in pretty planters for a moment worth a photo — against our Paris Collection faucet in Aged Brass, they really pop!
7. Create a View
How wonderful would it be to stand at the sink and look out on a beautiful scene through a few large windows? Sign us up for this dreamy view, with our Loft 2.0 collection sink faucet in Unlaquered Natural Brass as part of the show.
8. Modernize Country Cottage
Love the charm of a cottage getaway? Us, too. But we love it even more with a modern update to a galley kitchen from lighting, windows, appliances and fixtures, like our Elan Vital collection wall-mounted pot filler and sink faucet.
9. Go All-White
Whitewashing a space may seem boring...it’s actually anything but! And metallic fixtures work perfectly against this bright backdrop, like our Blue Collection faucet in an Unlacquered Natural Brass does here, matching the brass hardware on all white kitchen cabinets.
10. Embrace Bronze
From cabinetry to fixtures, lots of dark, warm browns create an inviting atmosphere. Our Loft 2.0 collection faucet in Oil-Rubbed Bronze adds an absolutely suitable detail here when set against the bright, marble countertop and backsplash.
11. Make a Dark Statement
Blackened steel, walnut-veneered cabinets and matte black fixtures — like our Blue Collection shown here — create a moody, inspired kitchen full of personality. Just add some bright, light home decor to keep the design from crossing the line into The Addams Family.
12. Or Go Light
Who says light wood is dated? We love this fresh take, pairing light wood kitchen cabinets with a marble countertop, stainless steel appliances and contrasting dark Elan Vital collection faucet and wall-mounted pot filler. This is a classic style that will be relevant for decades.
13. Go Rustic Chic
Wish Joanna Gaines would makeover your home? After all, who doesn’t love her farmhouse style? We think she’d love this rustic chic kitchen with white subway tile backsplash, open wooden shelving and dark, dramatic counters, sink and Elan Vital faucet.
14. Stand Out in Gold
While white and black are a power couple, adding accents of bright gold, like with our elevated widespread faucet from the Elan Vital collection, makes everything look more sophisticated and luxurious.
15. Go for the Counter-Height Table
Tack on a counter-height table to your island to add functionality and personality. This kitchen echoed the gold accents found in the table legs and cabinet hardware with our TOD faucet collection in Unlacquered Brass for all the right details. (Plus, did you see the herringbone tile backsplash in the background? Love!)
16. Install Dark Counters
Bring some drama to your kitchen with a black countertop, like this dark granite, contrast it with a white marble backsplash and then take it to the next level with an uncoated polished brass finish on your sink faucet. It adds the perfect amount of drama and flair to any kitchen design.
17. Make a Flooring Statement
Go dramatic with flooring — here, this patterned cement tile is paired with reclaimed wood for a wow statement — and keep other details simple. No upper shelving, clean subway tile backsplash and an industrial-inspired pot filler provide a clean, open look. And if you want to throw in some extra flair, add uniquely shaped statement stools made from wood to tie into the rest of the theme.
18. Use Copper
Gold, polished nickel, antique brass — a popular trend today, metallic mania is taken up a notch with copper, an underutilized finish. Case-in-point: Our Loft kitchen faucet with hand spray. Set against this beautiful white and blue color palette, the limited use of copper adds warmth and makes both the faucet and light fixtures stand out.
19. Use Dramatic Accents
Want to make a daring statement? Use neutral colors in the countertops and backsplash and use a bright, eye-catching color in unexpected places, like our Polished Copper pot filler, copper tea kettle and copper knobs and accents on the stove. The combo is sure to give guests a wow moment.
20. Keep the Bones
Transform the kitchen in a historic home by keeping the bones but updating the details. Modernize the island, lighting, appliances and fixtures and keep the oldies but goodies, like the flooring. This is a kitchen remodel done right.
21. Embrace Open-Concept
Open-concept living and dining spaces are almost a necessity for the way we live today, and a very popular trend. Making sure all details are refined and connected makes this type of layout work well — adding a sophisticated faucet, like our Sutton collection here, elevates the look without stealing the show. Plus, an open-concept floor plan can make a small kitchen feel large.
22. Add a Coffee Bar
Create a coffee bar to help you rise and grind. Just keep it near the sink for easy refilling of your coffee machine and cleaning up of any spills (the before-your-coffee kind). Our Loft 2.0 Collection faucet in Satin Nickel shown here ensures you can stay caffeinated in style.
23. Choose an Artisan Faucet
Hand-hewn with tons of details, an artisan faucet makes all the difference in a luxury kitchen design. Here is our Elan Vital Collection up close and personal, dramatic against the white counters.
24. Decorate Your Island
Add a funky, cool element to your island to inject personality into your kitchen design without it becoming overwhelming. A cool patterned backdrop becomes the focal point, while metallics in the lighting and faucet accent the design.
If you are planning a kitchen renovation or are starting from scratch, these Instagram-worthy designs are sure to help you make the most of the most-used space in a home.
