When designing your new home, one room you don’t want to skimp on is your kitchen. Why? The kitchen is often the most-used room in the home!

This is a place where families gather, meals are prepared, and hosts entertain. In addition to a family room, the kitchen is typically where families and guests hang out the most.

There are many aspects of the kitchen that require great thought and consideration. Here are just a few:

What kind of appliances do you want? Which color?

Do you prefer more cabinets or more drawers? Think about the kitchenware you need to store. And where do you want them placed? What style and color?

What counter tops do like? Granite, quartz, tile? Make sure you design enough counter space for storage and cooking.

Do you want a walk-in pantry or a large pull out cabinet? If you have enough space, maybe you should consider a super-pantry/second kitchen instead?

Have you thought about the layout? Is it an open or narrow space? Will you include an island?

When you think about your dream kitchen in your new home, consider these areas before making decisions. It might be a daunting task, but hopefully these questions help. We’re confident you will thank us in the long run!
