Custom Kitchens VA, MD and DCIs it finally time to design your dream kitchen? If you’ve been considering a kitchen remodel, now is as good a time as any, especially if you want a fresh, new look in time for the holidays! Perhaps you’re interested in a new design and have already decided to remodel but need some custom kitchen ideas.

Whatever the case is, you’ve come to the right place. We hope some of these ideas give you the inspiration you need!

Four Great Custom Kitchen Ideas

While the best way to get the kitchen of your dreams is by talking to a professional custom kitchen designer, there are other things you can do as well. Plus, it’s always helpful to have something to bring to the table when you meet with the professional design team, even if it’s just a few ideas jotted down on a piece of paper.

Custom Kitchen Islands

Islands are beautiful and functional and can not only enhance the aesthetic of your kitchen, but they are also very efficient and can serve multiple purposes. Custom kitchen islands can:

  • Provide more countertop space
  • Increase storage space
  • Give you room for a second sink if you need it
  • Act as a breakfast bar
  • Provide extra seating (ideal if you entertain frequently)

Custom Kitchen Cabinetry

Custom kitchen cabinetry offers a number of benefits and can add unique beauty to any room. In fact, people use custom cabinetry for not only the kitchen but also bathrooms, dining rooms, foyers/front halls and more. With custom cabinetry, the sky is the limit when it comes to size and construction options, so it is a good solution for those looking for ample storage space in their kitchen design.

Space Maximization

Regardless of the shape or size of your kitchen, maximizing space is vital. Even if your kitchen is beautiful and has a lot of cabinet space, spending time in it – whether you’re cooking, cleaning or entertaining – will be difficult if the design isn’t efficient. And every efficient kitchen design shares a common attribute: maximized space. A truly efficient design is always possible, even for small galley kitchens and uniquely shaped spaces. It just takes the right custom kitchen designer to work with what you have and optimize the space. There are also numerous space-saving features you can use in your kitchen, such as hanging pot racks, wall-mounted knife racks, etc.

Lighting Usage

The lighting in a kitchen can make a major design statement and lend authenticity to your space. For instance, if you have a rustic kitchen design, a wrought iron chandelier can enhance the design. Interested in a modern kitchen? Try uniquely shaped, contemporary pendant lights. There are a lot of different options to choose from when it comes to lighting, no matter what style your kitchen is.
