4 Aspects of Kitchen Design That Building a Custom Home Allows You to Get Creative With

Custom Home

The right kitchen design elements can make your custom home everything you dreamed of.

When thinking about a custom home, you’re thinking about how to customize each and every space to fit your specific needs and preferences. One such space that can never be underappreciated is the kitchen, which many rightly think of as being the heart of the home. It can be common for the kitchen to account for up to 10% of the overall budget of a custom home. The real question is where you begin and what areas you can get creative with when designing a kitchen that works for you. Here are five areas of kitchen design that building your very own custom home allows you to do something unique in terms of design that just won’t be seen elsewhere.

1. Flooring

There are a huge number of options when it comes to kitchen flooring. This includes everything from tile, stone, hardwood, bamboo, cork, concrete, and beyond. Every option has its own benefits and drawbacks, but typically, most people just want something that looks good and is water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about spills. Options like laminate may be able to offer you the look of hardwood while still giving you the durability that is offered by other choices like tile.

2. Countertops

Like flooring, there are numerous material options available for picking the right countertops for your custom home. There is a huge range in prices here as well—from around $10 per square foot for tile, up to $125 per square foot for higher end finishes like marble or soapstone. There’s plenty of wiggle room in between those extremes too, with choices like quartz, granite, and butcher block being some of the most common kitchen countertop options. 

3. Appliances

These days, there are smart kitchen appliances that can make your everyday life just a smidge easier. There are also plenty of finishes out there that can play into the aesthetic of your home. Overall though, most people are more concerned with features and durability, so many of the big brand names out there are great starting places when you’re finding an appliance package.

4. Cabinetry

Kitchen cabinetry is an important part in having enough storage for you and your family, but on the other hand, you’re also going to want to find something that looks right for your space. Rustic wooden cabinets can be the key to achieving a more traditional looking kitchen space, whereas sleek, modern cabinets may make everything feel clean. Cabinets are usually made of wood but the kind of wood can make a difference too, with oak and hickory being common lower end options while cherry is used in more luxurious kitchen spaces.
