June 17, 2014

The kitchen is one of the most important places in a home. This is where many families bond, spark conversation and congregate throughout the day. If you have guests, friends, and family over often, you’ll want a kitchen style that reflects the value and personality of you and your home. Use these simple design tips to enhance your custom built kitchen.

Consider the Layout

When you are going through the blueprints of your soon to be custom built home in Murfreesboro, TN, be sure to consider how you want the kitchen to be constructed. Factors to strongly include:

  • The flow of traffic throughout the kitchen
  • Do you want a large dining space or will an elegant island or will a breakfast bar suffice?
  • Will your kitchen be located towards the front or back of the home?
  • How many appliances aside from a refrigerator will you require?

The designated layout will dictate the rest of the design and style throughout your kitchen.

Countertops Are Crucial

The style, design and material used for your kitchen countertops can drastically improve the quality and value of your kitchen. From quartz to marble to granite, you have a wide variety of options when it comes to designing your custom built kitchen. Remember to consider the following when deciding on a countertop material:

  • Style
  • Durability
  • Strength
  • Quality

Remember, you will be using your countertops for cooking, cleaning, and other daily activities – so find a material that suits your lifestyle and budget. A word of advice – always choose a quality countertop material that would be beneficial in your home. Should you decide to choose a more ‘affordable’ option, you may end up paying more in the long run to have them repaired multiple times throughout your time in the custom-built home.

Don’t Forget About Cabinets

Similar to countertops, cabinets can add a great deal of value to your home. Cabinets can be customized to a multitude of colors, styles and even shapes to match your ultimate kitchen design vision. Whether you choose a unique type of handle hardware or a color that makes your cabinets pop, this commonly overlooked aspect of a kitchen can truly enhance your custom built home.
