Trusting a Northern Colorado custom homebuilder to build you the home of your dreams, also ensures that you get kitchen of your dreams.
In the past, the kitchen was tucked away and boxed into a back corner of the house, where it would be out of sight. Today, kitchens are one of the biggest focal points of a home, but even more so in a custom home. In the majority of custom homes, the kitchen is carefully and creatively designed to beautifully accentuate and integrate into surrounding rooms. Custom kitchens add both beauty and function to provide a space meant to bring people together at the heart of the home.
With so many possibilities, custom kitchens can go beyond the cookie-cutter recipe of a traditional space and become the gourmet creation that will inspire you to cook, eat, and gather. Here are just a few of the top trends in kitchen design to inspire you as you cook up your dream kitchen.
Oversized Kitchen Islands
A kitchen island has been high on the wish list of homebuyers and home renovators for decades and continues to remain at the top of kitchen must-have lists. Oversized kitchen islands provide function and convenience, but they also make a bold statement. Oversized doesn’t mean the island has to overpower the space; the actual size of your island can be customized to complement the size of the room and the functionality you need.
Two-tone kitchen cabinets have become increasingly popular providing a simple way to make a bold visual impact. Two-tone cabinets can easily be integrated into any design style to add depth and diversity or to accent specific areas of the room. You can choose the colors that will best fit with the overall décor of your home or opt for darker or brighter colors that will stand out from the surrounding areas. There are countless ways to incorporate two different colors on your cabinetry and transform your space.
Eye-catching backsplashes are another way to add color, texture, pattern, or detail to the look of your kitchen. An amazing kitchen backsplash can be done in bold colors with traditional shapes, unique shaping in neutral colors, or with a unique combination of color and shape. Tile comes in all shapes and sizes and in different types of materials such as ceramic, porcelain, glass, or metal, but backsplashes can also be done in other materials to create a distinctive accent.
Technology can be wired into any room of the house, including the kitchen. Smart technology is available from the faucet to the lighting to make your life easier and more convenient. Whether you limit the advancement to countertop appliances or take it a step further to your oven and refrigerator, smart technology can transform your custom kitchen in new and innovative ways.
Metal finishes and accents have quickly grown in popularity in the home design industry. Whether you prefer gold, bronze, copper, or silver, metallic adds both a timeless and contemporary feel to any space. Gold, in particular, has become highly sought after for kitchens. From light fixtures to faucets and extending even to silverware and cutlery, gold has been magic in the kitchen.
Storage is one the biggest needs of any functional kitchen. Finding ways to maximize on space, while keeping items concealed can be difficult, but thankfully there are an increasing number of cabinetry options and ideas to deliver clever storage solutions for your kitchen. Roll out shelves, appliance garages, floating shelves on backsplashes, tall vertical drawers, and many other ideas can be carefully designed to create seamless and effective kitchen storage. Even pantries can be designed to make the most of the space, while still looking pretty.
