Houston luxury design destination, CASA Companies, introduced Cesar Kitchens to Houston in 2019 and has since created customized kitchen designs for both new construction and historic renovation single-family homes. These include luxury condominium projects, such as the jaw-dropping Residence 201 at The River Oaks recently unveiled to a VIP design crowd featuring not one but two show-stopping kitchens by Cesar.

CASA’s in-house kitchen design expert, Mark Arce, works hand in hand with clients to ensure every detail is carefully crafted to create the perfect kitchen design using Cesar’s ample selection of timeless finishes to complement any space.

“Translating Cesar’s Italian aesthetic to Houston design needs has been effortless. Their selection of world-class finishes and endless customization options allows us to showcase Cesar’s versatility,” says Arce. “We can create timeless designs to fit all our client’s needs, no matter how modern or traditional their tastes may be.”

So, what’s trending in Houston? Arce shares the top three luxury kitchen design trends that Houstonians are requesting:

Invisible Kitchens

CASA’s clients are requesting kitchen designs that are clean, sleek, and minimal yet functional. This design blends seamlessly with the rest of the living space and conceals much of your typical kitchenware for a “barely there” look. Cesar’s large selection of high-end finishes creates tonal designs in many material options to achieve this trend with ease.

Statement Islands

Creating a bold island design with innovative use of luxurious materials like large statement stones or bold-colored lacquers adds a “wow” factor to any kitchen design and transforms a practical island used for everything from entertaining to meal prepping into an exciting and decorative focal point of the room.

Natural Materials

Bringing the outdoors in with natural materials is a great way to add elevated touches to your kitchen design. Using natural stone countertops and backsplashes is a great way to add luxe yet eco-friendly flair while wood cabinetry with sleek metal accents can bring warmth and elegance to the space.
