Customizing Your Kitchen in 2018

Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing and listen to your own instincts. When you customize a kitchen, it’s important that you’re honest with yourself. Everyone has different expectations and needs from their kitchen. Some like to cook big family meals while others use the oven as extra storage space. Whatever way you intend to use your kitchen, make sure you design for your specific needs, not what you think you should need.

Personally efficient

There are two ways to make a kitchen efficient. One, you need custom storage space for your kitchen appliances, utensils, and kitchenware. The kitchen should flow, and everything should be placed to make the flow of the kitchen feel natural and easy. Two, make it personally efficient. If you want to watch your kids do their homework while prepping dinner, then you may want to add charging stations and extra counter space to sit and work or do homework. If you don’t want to take a break from binge-watching Netflix as you get ready for a dinner party, then customize some space for your laptop that is not taking up precious counter space. These are the types of things that will make your kitchen both efficient and personal.

Bright and warm

You want light and sunshine to brighten up your kitchen. Hues of whites and greys will enhance the light. But you can bring in a bit of warmth by adding dark reclaimed hardwood floors, or other natural dark wood accents to the kitchen.

Playing with texture

Matte cabinets and countertops, mixed with the shine of gold and brass fixtures will add texture to your kitchen. You can also play with shapes and sizes, like having a few oversized lamps, to make your kitchen more visually interesting. Varying between a few open shelves, cabinets, and drawers will also make your kitchen more dynamic, personal, and efficient.
