Designing a Custom Kitchen: 3 Tips from the Experts

Posted on July 1, 2018
Life is sweet in Fulton, Maryland, but it could be even better if you had the kitchen you always wanted. Custom kitchen remodeling is no simple task, and often it takes a team of experienced professionals to complete the project successfully. Are you planning to remodel your Fulton home? Discover three custom kitchen remodeling tips from the experts at Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths.


Are you planning to remodel your Fulton home?

Ask the Right Questions

You can’t design your dream kitchen if you don’t know what you want. Before you begin the process, ask yourself a few important questions. How will the kitchen primarily be used? Is it a space used solely for cooking or will you entertain guests too? Do the children complete their homework at the dining room table? Do you prefer to eat breakfast on the kitchen island? Answering these questions will help your designer learn more about you and your family’s needs.

Maintain Communication

In an ideal world, a homeowner could snap their fingers, and the perfect kitchen would appear. A custom kitchen remodel takes time, and it requires your help along the way. You don’t have to pick up a hammer to contribute, but it’s important to maintain an open line of communication with your contracting team. Drop by the site on occasion, and don’t be afraid to ask questions or offer your opinion. The kitchen is the soul of the kitchen, after all, and you want to ensure that the design is reflective of you.

Incorporate Technology

We’re well into the 21st century; it’s time to bring your kitchen up to speed. Upgrade your old-fashioned appliances to new, energy-efficient options. Not only will new, modernized equipment allow for you to save money on your energy bill, but it will simplify the process of cooking and cleaning. Consider incorporating technology throughout the kitchen, and ask your designer what they can do to make integration easier.
