Second to the master bedroom, the kitchen is the most used space in most homes. Kitchen design presents an opportunity to interject individuality into an overall design and conform to lifestyle. The contemporary kitchen has become a center of entertainment and a meeting place for family and friends.
We provide a base kitchen design that is functional, accessible, and fully equipped with quality appliances, cabinetry, and ample surfaces. Almost all plans include a pantry and most include a breakfast bar. The base design is electric, but can be easily respecified to gas. The appliances include a 30" range with oven, microwave/ventless fan combination, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. Provision for a 36" refrigerator is provided, and the supply of the appliance is normally the responsibility of the client. The Cabinetry is quality manufactured all wood with solid surface counters. Plumbing fixtures include a deep double bowl stainless steel sink and single lever faucet with sprayer. Floors are hardwood.
We provide a general kitchen layout on our plans, and final design is subject to completion based upon client input. We can complete this design, but the best option here is to consult with your or your builder's cabinet installer for completion. They will have design capability and product specific knowledge. This service should be at no cost to you.
Custom kitchen designs should start with the appliance selections for determining layout. Wall ovens, vented grill cooktops, island counters, warming ovens, oversized refrigerators, wine storage, and vent hoods are popular specifications. Involvement of the cabinet supplier should begin after the first draft is completed so framing adjustments can be made to accommodate the design. Don't neglect your storage needs. Cabinetry and appliance options can be seen in our Design Ideas.
