Custom Kitchen Design Tips


Creating a custom kitchen design requires research, patience, and a little creativity. Not only does the new space need to meet your family’s requirements, but it also needs to fulfill all of your dreams. Whether you’re remodeling your home or building it from the ground up, it’s important to design a kitchen you’ll cherish for years to come. Discover how to design your custom kitchen in Olney, Maryland with tips from the experts at Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths.

Are you ready to begin your custom kitchen design?

Work in Triangles

What are the three most important elements of the kitchen? To most designers, those elements consist of the refrigerator, the stove, and the sink. These items are essential for preparing meals and keeping food fresh, so it’s crucial that they are easily accessible by the homeowners. Consider creating a “work triangle” with the refrigerator, stove, and sink to establish efficiency in the kitchen. If you’re designing a larger kitchen with a dining area, the designer might suggest multiple “work triangles” to improve the flow of the space.

Consider the Dinner Party

The kitchen was once a room where homeowners or housekeepers prepared meals. Today’s kitchens are multi-functional and serve as a place to enjoy meals, parties, homework, and more. When designing your kitchen in Olney, consider how the new space will be conducive for entertaining. Modern kitchen islands are a great way to open up a space, and allow homeowners to cook and entertain simultaneously.

Establish Cupboard Space

How a homeowner chooses to use their cupboard space says a lot about their personal style. Ten years ago, most kitchen cupboards looked exactly the same (despite paint color, of course). Today, many homeowners are maximizing the space in their kitchen with minimalist designs. Determine if you want a modern or traditional cupboard design, and consider how the location of the cupboards will affect your day-to-day.
