At HG Luxury Homes, our design-build team provides clients with custom kitchen designs to help them make their dream kitchen a reality. While kitchen remodeling can overwhelm homeowners from Spring to Magnolia, it’s important to take the time to plan out your space. When you work with our interior designers, we keep your tastes and preferences in mind to help you realize your vision.
As a homeowner, you likely spend a lot of your time in the kitchen. This means you know that thoughtful, functional design is vital to create a custom kitchen design that works for you.
Are you planning a kitchen renovation or hoping to build a custom home? Check out these custom kitchen design tips to help you map out your dream home. Carefully consider these design elements before you begin your kitchen remodeling project.
Understand Functionality in Your Custom Kitchen Design
Functionality is probably the most important aspect of a kitchen renovation. While cooking is the main function of a kitchen, it quickly becomes so much more. The kitchen is like the heart of your home, and your custom kitchen design should reflect that. We gather with family and spend the majority of our time in the kitchen, making it one of the most important rooms in our home.
Aside from cooking, a kitchen is a place to work, read the mail, chat with your family, help the kids with their homework, and enjoy a cocktail after a long day. It’s important to narrow down what you see yourself doing in your kitchen space. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Do you like to entertain guests?
- How much seating do you need?
- Besides cooking, what else do you do in your kitchen?
- How do you plan to use it day to day?
Understand the Work Triangle
Something important to consider as you plan your custom kitchen design is the flow of your prep space. Some refer to this area as the “work triangle.” This space is the distance between three most-used parts of your kitchen, typically your stove, refrigerator, and sink. When you have an efficient workflow, it allows you to move with ease between these three points.
Without a solid workflow, you run all over the kitchen trying to access the most important aspects.
An important aspect to keep in mind is the distance between each point in your triangle. While there’s no set rule, it’s good to have the edge of the triangle somewhere between 40-60”. Our kitchen remodeling team will help you plan your custom kitchen design and determine the best clearance between these points.
Plan for Adequate Storage in Your Kitchen Renovation
One of the most common complaints we hear from clients who want to remodel their kitchen is the lack of storage in their current space. However, even the smallest kitchen has options to maximize their storage with the right solutions.
Do you utilize small kitchen appliances quite often? Consider where the easiest place to access them would be. With our custom cabinetry service, we offer our clients a variety of options for creative storage solutions.
- Pots and pans drawers
- Pantries with pull-out shelves
- Walk-in pantries
- Overhead cabinets
- And more
The right cabinet design can vastly improve the functionality of your kitchen. Think of the items you use the most and where might be the most convenient locations. For example, if you love to cook with herbs and spices, a pullout spice drawer next to your stove might be the most effective option.
Your custom kitchen design can also take advantage of spaces that are less accessible to household items you don’t use daily. Hidden doors under a kitchen island seating area can be an excellent place to store serving pieces you use for special occasions.
