Planning & Designing Your Custom Kitchen

Kitchen showcase in Centennial

Planning a custom kitchen is a complex process since there are multiple factors to consider, and the design team at The Kitchen Showcase are here to help point which deserves the most attention. With years of experience designing custom kitchens in Denver, Colorado and surrounding areas, The Kitchen Showcase has come up with a checklist that is sure to help you save both time and money when planning your space.
Designing a kitchen in Denver

  1. Style of Design: Custom kitchens can come in all styles and designs, ranging from traditional to modern/contemporary. You will want to select a design that best fits your home and matches your lifestyle.
  2. Color Selection: Much like the design of your custom kitchen, the color you select will help to set the atmosphere and tone of your room. Colors can match those of your home, or they can be bold and modern to add a twist to a traditional home.
  3. Countertop Finishes: Countertops come in a wide variety of shapes and materials, ranging from the cheaper laminate options to more expensive solid quartz and granite. The designers at The Kitchen Showcase can help you select a few options that will fit the style of your kitchen, as well as offer options at varying price points.
  4. Custom Kitchen Cabinets & Cupboards: Much like your countertops, kitchen cabinets and cupboards come in a variety of materials. Depending on your budget, you can select to have custom kitchen cabinets built from high-end solid wood, or you could have prefabricated ones installed instead. Materials and colors are easily interchangeable, giving you unlimited options when it comes to selecting which designs you prefer.
  5. Amount of Refrigerator Space Needed: When designing a custom kitchen be sure to note the size of the refrigerator that you plan on installing. This is one of the largest and most important appliances in your kitchen, so you will want to be sure that your design plan allows the right amount of space for it to sit. The placement of your refrigerator will also dictate the setup of your kitchen cabinets and counters, so be sure that you have selected a location that you are satisfied with.
  6. Sinkware and Location: Much like your refrigerator, you will want to carefully plan out the location of your sink, as it can be difficult to relocate in the future. Are you looking to install a smaller single bowl sink, or will you be in need of a larger double-bowl sink with two drains? Many like to locate the sink near to, or in front of a window, and it could mean that a new window must be installed to meet your needs.
  7. Appliances: Having already selected the desired location for your refrigerator and sink, take the time to map out where you would like to place other kitchen appliances, such as a stove, dishwasher or icebox. These tend to take up possible cabinet space, so do take the time to think about where certain things should be located. Must your stove be placed an arm’s length of your sink? Are you looking to have your dishwasher close to your cupboards? You want your kitchen to flow, and by understanding how each appliance accompanies one another, you can better decide what needs to be close to one another.

There are many things to take into consideration when looking to select the perfect cabinets for your kitchen. You will want to clearly outline your budget before hitting the market place, as there are numerous options to choose from.
The Kitchen Showcase, the Denver custom kitchen and cabinet center, would like to discuss many of the questions that you should ask yourself before making your final selection.

TKSI wood cabinetryWhat are You Looking For in a Kitchen Cabinet?

Lets be honest here. All kitchen cabinets serve the same purpose, and when it comes to functionality, they tend to work similarly as well. Selecting the right kitchen cabinets for your home can be compared to buying a car. Are you looking at picking up a new Prius, or are you looking at that new Range Rover? While they will both get you from point A to point B, they each do so in different fashions.
Take a long look at your current kitchen set up and determine exactly how you want your cabinets to look and function. How much are you willing to spend on these features? Maybe you would prefer to spend that money elsewhere to help customize other aspects of their kitchen.
Cabinet all share the same basic properties, however, it is the craftsmanship, hardware and choice of materials that causes the biggest swing in pricing.

Understanding Basic Cabinet Types

When selecting your cabinets you will have the option to choose between in-stock, semi-custom and custom cabinets. In-stock kitchen cabinets are obviously prefabricated and the the lowest priced of the group. This variety comes in a wide range of styles and options, and they also have been designed so that they fit most sizes of kitchens.
Semi-Custom kitchen cabinets can be selected from pre-existing styles, but the cabinets themselves are build offsite. These option do come with more customizable features, as the sizes, materials and hardware can often be altered to create a more customized kitchen. That being said, they do often come with a higher price tag given the added features. These do, however, take multiple weeks to be created, so you will have to be patient when selecting this option.
Those designing a custom kitchen will likely want to go with custom kitchen cabinets. From start to finish, you have 100% control of what the finished product will look like. Custom kitchen cabinet designers will be able to view your kitchen and make professional suggestions as to which options might best match the style of your home. While these are the most expensive options on the market, they are the perfect addition to any custom kitchen.
