A custom kitchen is one of the most luxurious additions to include in your new home. When installing a custom kitchen in your new home build, the kitchen design is the first thing to consider. Kitchen design can be challenging, especially when choosing from the various available features, creating a balance between aesthetics and functionality. In most cases, homeowners want their kitchen to be aesthetically pleasing while ensuring their design and characteristics accommodate their wants, needs, and lifestyle. Continue reading for three key elements to include in your custom kitchen design.
One of the first steps to be taken in the design process of a custom kitchen is developing the layout. The layout plays a significant role in establishing your kitchen’s space, flow, functionality, and position of your kitchen’s main components and features, such as appliances, islands, fixtures, and more. Many layout options are available for kitchens, including the work triangle, which creates a clear path between your refrigerator, stove, and sink, allowing you to maneuver through your kitchen efficiently. There’s also the L-shaped kitchen layout which is a practical option for small and large kitchens. It has an open layout in the shape of an L, offering you space and versatility. Choosing a layout that accommodates your kitchen is key in ensuring your kitchen is functional, effective, efficient, spacious, and organized.
When it comes to kitchen storage, there just never seems to be enough of it. However, when designing and building a custom kitchen, you can extend your storage options to include features that aren’t typically offered in a standard kitchen. Features include built-in custom cabinets, deep drawers, island storage, built-in shelving, walk-in pantries, and much more. Customized storage options are key in keeping your kitchen organized and clutter-free, creating an appealing and safe area for cooking and preparing food. After you’ve established the layout of your kitchen, you can implement storage plans, ensuring that the aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen are cohesive.
One of the most common mistakes made in a kitchen design is poor lighting. Lighting is key in creating the perfect ambiance in your kitchen while enhancing its space and appeal. Many lighting options can be implemented in your kitchen design, including ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. You can even customize your kitchen to include smart lighting options or built-in lighting in your kitchen cabinets and drawers.
