Building a custom home starts from the ground up, and that means you should think long and hard about every room in the house. You’ve probably heard the kitchen described as the heart of your home. It’s true! Here are some exciting ways to make your kitchen the centerpiece of your custom home.
An Open Floor Plan
Both open living spaces and open kitchens are trendy ways to make your custom home feel even more welcoming. Your new kitchen should make you feel like you are able to entertain more often, and an open floor plan centered on the kitchen will help you do just that! Open floor plans also help to optimize the flow of foot traffic and prevent the kitchen from becoming too congested.
Combining Three Rooms
Putting three rooms together, such as the living room, kitchen, and dining room into one great room is possible. In fact, it is another method through which you can emphasize the beauty of your kitchen design. You will also have a convenient place to sit and relax while you get some work done for the office. Alternatively, you could be comfier while researching some new recipes all while still making it easy to converse with anyone seated in the living room.
Adding an Island
A kitchen island can serve as the pride and joy of your custom home. The island makes socializing, cooking, and relaxing in the kitchen of your new abode more fun and, more importantly, more convenient. Spend time with the rest of your family preparing a delicious meal, and once dinner is over, move over to the island to have a family game night!
Open floor plans lend more flow to your custom home. Consider how the front door and foyer run directly to the kitchen. Meanwhile, the kitchen can just as easily lead to the sunroom, the back patio, and the basement that has even more room for entertaining. Also, mull over various design features that also complement your new living space – deeper cabinets, a walk-in pantry, and additional seating.
