Planning Your New Home Kitchen

Planning your new home kitchen is important and is usually a priority to focus on for most of our clients during the design process. During the design phase, you will want to think about how you envision your new home kitchen.

Important Elements to Consider for Your New Home Kitchen

1. Are you looking for a large gourmet kitchen for cooking and entertaining? Or are you looking for a modest and functional kitchen for everyday cooking?

2. Where do you want to place the kitchen in your new home’s floor plan? Are there views you want to take advantage of?

3. Do you want your kitchen to be open to the other main living areas of the home (great room and dining room) or do you want the kitchen to be separate?

4. Do you want to incorporate timbers into your new home kitchen design or keep it the design conventional?

5. Will your kitchen feature an eat-in area?

6. Are you looking to add an island for additional counter space and seating?

7. Do you want to add a walk-in pantry for extra storage?

All the above are questions ask yourself. Most of us who build a new home, only build once and it’s important to factor in all the different elements.
