Our Tips For Designing Your Custom Kitchen

When building your own modular home, you have the ability to choose every detail. While this offers you the exciting opportunity to create a space that is exactly what you want, it also increases the importance of being prepared for the decisions you have to make. Some of the most common regrets when creating a dream home often happen in the kitchen.

The Most Important Design Decisions

No matter where you are in life, kitchen serves a vital role in the daily life of your household. Your family size, cooking habits, and entertaining patterns all play a large role in the functionality of your kitchen. When creating your kitchen, here are the four most important things to consider.

1. Size: (cabinets, storage space, pantry)

Finding the perfect size for your kitchen is the first and most important decision you can make in the design. Ask yourself questions to try to determine the perfect size for you. Will you be entertaining a lot? How many dishes do you have? Will you be cooking on a frequent basis? Try to find the perfect balance between cramped and restricted movement and excessive space that could be used for other things. Our homes feature the most efficient use of space and many options to customize to your lifestyle.

2. Appliance Positions

In the excitement of choosing which appliances to get, we often overlook where we are going to put them. The location of your sink can have an especially large impact on the flow of your kitchen. Our home designers have optimized the position of the appliances to fit almost any lifestyle. But it is important to know that if you need something different our experienced home Consultants can help you customize.

3. Floors and Countertops and Cabinets

Though these seem to be some of the first kitchen decisions homebuilders make, it is important that you understand all of your options and the costs associated with them before fully committing to your decisions. Our model homes feature many different layouts and designs. And we can customize!

4. Colors and Lighting

Lighting is typically not something you think about when designing your home, but it plays a huge role in the feel of your space. We have many lighting and paint options , all of which can be customized to meet your family’s needs.
