Custom Kitchen Design – How To Choose The Right Kitchens For Your Home

Custom kitchens are designed for you by a professional designer. They’re built to last, and they’re made to fit your lifestyle. Every inch of the custom kitchen design is created to serve a visual or functional purpose.

Start With a Vision

Before you start shopping for cabinets, countertops, appliances, lighting fixtures, flooring, paint colors, and more, take some time to think through what you really need. What will you use your new kitchen for? Do you plan to entertain often? Will you spend much time cooking at home? Have a wish list to review with your designer.

Traditional KitchenThink About Functionality

You can find a wide variety of kitchen designs online, but before you buy anything, think about how you’re going to use your space. Do you cook alone, or as a family? Do you need extra space for your spice collection? Also, think about where your guests will hang out, as the kitchen is often the gathering spot.

Standalone appliances can now be stored away in an easy-to-access space within cabinet lift-up systems. Morris Blacks offers many solutions for cabinet interiors to help organize your kitchen to be functional and efficient. Whatever your needs, the designer can specify solutions that will work for you.

Decide Where You Want to Put Things

Do you want your kitchen to have a clutter-free countertop?  If so, modern Kitchens are designed to have lots of hidden storage.  See our 1908™ Cabinetry page for Modern design ideas. Traditional Kitchens may have large islands with pot racks for hanging your copper pot collection. Transitional kitchen design incorporates both Modern and Traditional Styling for a less date-specific style.
