The layout, color palette and style of your new kitchen create its overall look. But if you want to take your new kitchen’s appearance and functionality to the next level, you shouldn’t forget about the small details. One of the premier custom home builders in the area, J. Bryant Boyd Architect Design-Build, shares a few designer touches you may want to incorporate into your new kitchen.
1. Flush Countertops
Kitchen countertops usually extend over the doors by half an inch. But you also have the option to make them flush with the drawers and doors to create a sleek, more contemporary look.
2. Pop-Up Outlets
If you’re not particularly fond of outlets that interrupt a seamless kitchen backsplash, you can go for a pop-up outlet. They disappear into the countertops when not in use, and they’re especially useful if you don’t have wall cabinets that can hide a plug molding strip.
3. Corner Sink
Your kitchen sink doesn’t have to be dead center in the counters. To create a long and almost seamless countertop surface for your kitchen tasks, you should consider positioning the sink at the corner. You can consult one of the trusted design build firms in the area, J. Bryant Boyd Architect Design-Build, to determine how this design choice would best work for you.
4. Wall Cabinets With Lift-Up Doors
Crowding your new kitchen with appliances is a no-no. You should be able to conceal the smaller ones at least, which is where wall cabinets with lift-up doors come in handy. They not only allow for a neater, more organized kitchen but help free up valuable countertop space as well. If you’re having difficulty finding a spot for your microwave, coffee maker or toaster, then these cabinets are it.
5. Undercabinet Task Lighting
While undercabinet lighting can also give your new kitchen visual interest, its main purpose is to illuminate your countertops. This unique task lighting makes for easier meal preparation, but just make sure to have it installed toward the front of the cabinet. If it’s installed around the back, it lights up the backsplash instead, completely defeating its purpose.
