Ideas to Steal from Our Favorite Custom Kitchens

Considering building a custom home, or remodeling your existing home? Ending up with a kitchen that meets your family’s needs, feels current, and is well-suited to your home is no small task. In our role as custom home builders, we have seen so many concepts move through the design phase to fruition. Here are 3 ideas we recommend stealing:

Waterfall Edge Countertops

Waterfall edges can be created with a variety of solid slabs like marble, granite, concrete, or even wood. Lending a current feel to the design, a waterfall edge makes the material you have so carefully chosen visible from more angles and lends a beautiful cohesiveness to the entire space.

Creative Shelving

You can create a more open and contemporary feel in your kitchen by reducing the number of upper cabinets. But creating a sense of space doesn’t have to mean less storage. Adding a shelf or two will ensure that everything has its own place.

White with Warm Woods

White is a timeless color choice for any kitchen, traditional or modern. Make the space look larger and balance the whiteness with warm woods. Wood elements can include a butcher-block section in your island, wood flooring, or shelves (see above).
