What you should know before installing a custom kitchen

Custom kitchen can be a phenomenon in your interior design as it can utilize your available space to the fullest. A custom kitchen should have everything individually designed based on the individual. A Custom kitchen costs a fortune due to the fact that it is extremely labor intensive, but it is something different and unique. Low budget kitchens are all too common these days and have no imagination whatsoever. When selecting a cabinet manufacturer, the most important thing should be the utilization and design of the space available. If you want to install a custom kitchen, you need to know that this type of kitchen requires a preliminary design. Make sure you have a rough idea or a plan for your custom kitchen, and if not interior design studios can optimize your idea. If you are working with a design studio, make sure you choose an experienced designer that is not simply working from a flow chart, but has a vision of his or her own.




The best possible approaches for a custom kitchen are two – the design and the layout can be synchronized with the existing electrical and plumbing installations or the whole kitchen can be designed to match your exact specifications without taking them into consideration. Of course, the second approach would be much more time and money consuming, but after all this is why we call them custom kitchens, right? This is how greater comfort and a higher level of functionality will be achieved.

Majority of kitchens have the T-shaped layout, but you can change that depending on your preferences. Another design principle used by many kitchen designers is the “triangle”; this is formed from the three major points of utility in the kitchen – the sink, the cooking or stove area and food storage (pantry or refrigerator). When creating a custom kitchen, pay special attention to the corners. If needed, provide tailor-made cabinets for total space utilization or use simple useful shelves.


The important factors that influence the custom kitchen vision include the following: the cabinet panels, natural and artificial veneer, kitchen boards, paint, stainless steel, granite surfaces. The individual designs are performed by skillful professionals, which will also help you decide on the most comfortable and functional kitchen appliances. Keep in mind that apart from the general concept, you should also consider the details, so that your idea can materialize in the best possible way.

You can enhance the individual style of your custom kitchen design by the inclusion of fittings such as wine racks and non-standard storage units to take advantage of otherwise redundant gaps and irregular spaces.  Make sure you give it a good thought when planning your custom kitchen.
