Room of the month: Indulge in culinary opulence
This exquisite kitchen design proves a functional kitchen can also be fashionable.
Designing a luxury kitchen in the Carolinas requires attention to detail, high-quality materials and a focus on functionality and aesthetics. The team at Dillard-Jones Builders checked all of the boxes in this stunning custom project for homeowners Arnie Kozak and Alexis Ressler.
“We love how our kitchen balances form and function,” Kozak said. “It is well-equipped and designed to be a practical cook’s kitchen first. We wanted the kitchen’s efficiency to be elegant with a contemporary feel that would not be austere. Design features such as the waterfall island and the unique pendant lights that Dillard-Jones found for us, after much searching, were a perfect complement and contributed to this modern sense.”
The kitchen features a double oven, a steam oven (no microwave) and a warming drawer. It has two sinks — a large-format black stainless steel with an additional prep sink. The cabinets are painted in a calming blue and neutral gray. The walls were painted in a darker shade of gray with white trim.
“We really love the appliance wall and especially the built-in coffee maker,” Kozak said. “I was dubious about this feature, but it really makes great coffee!”
Carolinians are entertainers so the ideal kitchen serves many purposes. It’s a place for cooking and preparing food, storage, dining, socializing, relaxation and more. This kitchen really does it all.

A luxury kitchen should be both beautiful and functional. Consider the layout of your kitchen and how you will use the space. For example, if you love to cook, you may want to invest in top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of countertop space, like in this kitchen built by Dillard-Jones Builders.
