Customizing Your Kitchen

custom kitchen

Depending on what your lifestyle is like, you could be spending a lot of time in your kitchen.  It’s not just where you cook, but depending on your culture could also be where you eat, socialize, and spend quality time with friends and family.  Creating a kitchen that’s right for you is well worth the money, as your kitchen should be somewhere you feel at home.  Even if you’re not the type that adores their kitchen, or even spends very much time there, your kitchen is still a reflection of you.  Below are some ideas for exactly what parts of your kitchen you can customize to get the best results for you and your family.

Height

Not all of us are as vertically gifted as others, and high kitchen cabinets can be just plain impractical for those of us who measure under 5’6’’.  Many kitchens feature a cabinet above the refrigerator, typically used to store things many adults don’t want youngsters to get ahold of, but what about adults that just happen to be the size of youngsters?  As we age, we get shorter, but it doesn’t mean we should go hungry!  Properly sizing the height of your cabinets as well as the height of your counter tops, bar stools, or appliances can make all the difference in your kitchen feeling comfortable and truly customized to fit your needs.

Color

Kitchens tend to stick to the same old color palette: whites, blacks, browns, and maybe reds if one is feeling particularly adventurous, but it doesn’t have to be that way!  Customizing the color of your kitchen to fit with your whole house is completely possible with the right contractor.  Greens, blues, yellows, oranges, purples, and more are all possible if you just do your research.

Dining Space

Like we said before, not everyone spends the same amount of time in their kitchen.  If you’re the type that likes to eat and socialize where you cook, then you probably want some sort of dining and gathering space in your kitchen.  An island with bar stools gives your kitchen a very open and welcoming feel, and it allows the cook to interact with their guests while continuing to prepare a meal for them.  However if you’re the type that prefers to keep cooking and company separate and your current kitchen has some sort of dining space, don’t be afraid to get rid of it!  A custom kitchen is supposed to be designed for you, so there’s no shame in eliminating the parts of it that you know you won’t use. 

Being conventional shouldn’t limit you from having the kitchen you really want.  For a kitchen remodeling consultation contact Alliance today!
