If you’ve ever built a new home or remodeled a home, you’ll understand the detail that goes into making sure you’ve made the right choices. It’s stressful and it’s time-consuming, but you always want to put full effort into it. You don’t save up enough to do half of what you want done in a room your remodeling – you save until you can build your dream! So you definitely don’t want to put half of your effort into the choices made during a remodel or new home build.

Kitchens are full of tough decisions. Such a large portion of your home life is spent in this one room; you want it to be perfect. Below is a list of a few items you may want to think about while building or remodeling your dream kitchen.

GRAY IS THE NEW WHITE

The cabinets don’t have to be brown! We swear – there are other options! The newest trend is a gray cabinet tone. Could be light, could be dark, but gray is a great alternative to the ever-popular brown cabinets. It also brings a warmth to your kitchen that brown just can’t do!

MAXIMIZE SPACE

Well, being that we devoted an entire blog to this, I’d say we’re fans of using every inch of your home. But the kitchen is where it is most important. Make sure you use every inch of the space given to you. You won’t regret spending a little extra for this.

BUILT IN APPLIANCES

White, black and stainless are not your only options when it comes to appliances. Why not opt to continue your cabinet pattern on your appliances? The “hidden” appliances add a sleek look to your kitchen. And why not have a little fun confusing your guests? 😉

CABINET DRAWER BASES

Think about those cabinets underneath your countertop. You open one up, crouch down and dig through to the back to find that one specific pan. You reach to grab it and then bump the back of your head while trying to crawl back out of your cabinet. Quit crouching. Go for drawers at the bottom of all your cabinets.

CUSTOMIZED DRAWERS

While we’re on the subject of drawers, if you’re going to build your dream kitchen, build YOUR dream kitchen! Customizing drawers is a great way to save space and save hair-pulling-out. Think about ways you can make a space more user-friendly and add it to your renovation or build plans!
