planning your custom kitchen

The kitchen is one of the rooms in a home that gets used the most frequently and gets used by the whole household. It stands to reason that since you’ll be spending a lot of time in your kitchen, you should be able to design the space to be exactly the way that you want it. At Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center, we can help you do just that and create a kitchen that ideally suits your needs and preferences. The prospect of planning a custom kitchen can be somewhat daunting, but in our experience, you can easily streamline the process by following a few simple steps.

  • Decide how you’re going to use the space. The main function of a kitchen is obviously to cook, but there are additional factors to keep in mind. Do you plan to use your kitchen only for food preparation, or do you want to include space for a kitchen table or breakfast nook? How many people are likely to be using the space at once—is one person going to cook alone, or do you want room for the whole family to work together? Our team at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center can help you realize your vision of the perfect kitchen for your home.
  • Plan the layout. One of the biggest draws of a custom kitchen is the ability to create the layout you want. The layout of any kitchen plays a vital role in determining how functional the space is—even a kitchen with top-tier appliances is unlikely to get used much if the layout is poorly designed. When planning your custom kitchen, make sure that your layout creates a natural workflow between appliances, and give yourself enough room for at least two people to move around comfortably.
  • Give yourself enough storage. Another critical factor in a kitchen’s success is the amount of storage space. You need room to put all your groceries as well as all your cooking equipment so that you can always find what you need. We at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center can work with you to design a storage layout that will keep everything you need close at hand, so you never need to go hunting through your cabinets for the right gadget again
