Many people who build a custom home focus a lot of their attention on the kitchen. This room is often the hub of the home and the center of activity because people tend to gather where there’s food and family. The kitchen in your custom home should be designed to fit your personal style as well comfort. It is also important to choose the best appliances for your kitchen and to understand why this room is so important.
Designing the kitchen in your custom home
A person who loves to cook or create culinary masterpieces for family and friends absolutely needs a spacious and well-appointed kitchen. On the other hand, if a cook wants to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen, then the design and layout can be simpler.
When selecting kitchen cabinets, look for quality. This is not the place to be overly consumed with trying to save money. Well-made cabinets will provide lasting pleasure and functionality for decades. In addition, choose hard surface, durable, and high quality countertops. There are a variety of colors and selections available. Granite is an ideal counter surface for the any custom home because it is durable and comes in a large variety of colors.
Choosing appliances for your kitchen
Just as with the design of the kitchen, you should not skimp when choosing appliances. You don’t need to buy the best of the best, but good quality appliances help sell homes. Today, many custom home kitchens feature two dishwashers. The cost of an additional dishwasher is often only slightly more than the cost of the additional cabinetry it replaces.
To make the the most of the kitchen in your custom home, consider adding other features like a convection microwave, warming drawers, double ovens, and pot fillers. You can also invest in hidden pantries, coffee and espresso bars, elevated dishwashers, vegetable sinks built into the island, and purified water faucets. All of these features can make your custom home more modern and efficient.
Why the kitchen is so important
When you design your custom home, be sure the kitchen is given special consideration. You should also consider its relation to other rooms and features like the living room or dining room. A comfortable and functional kitchen will make a difference for years to come.
It is important to remember when you are designing a custom home to consider the resale value and design accordingly. A well-designed and functional kitchen not only makes the cook happy, it also ensures a greater resale value.
