The kitchen is without question the most important room in determining a home’s value for buying and selling purposes. Of all homes listed for sale on Realtor.com, approximately 70% promote the kitchen’s size, design, features, fixtures and appliance package as the home’s primary selling points. The kitchen is the heart of the home—a central hub with a lot of traffic. So as a focal point, it should be uncluttered, spacious, with lots of working surfaces located where they will be most efficient.
We love custom designing (as well as custom redesigning) kitchens that are showstoppers, jaw-droppers and must-have list toppers!
The current preference is for an open, casual atmosphere with professional-grade restaurant kitchen capability. For those who love to cook or entertain, a gas stovetop and oven, brushed metal commercial range hood, eat-in island or bar, dual dishwashers, oversized refrigerators (freezer drawers), and abundant counter space are a dream come true.
Custom cabinetry is another obvious choice—so its design and styling carry through architectural themes of the home. And lastly, top-tier, leading-brand appliances matter. Factor in countertops and backsplashes that take your breath away and you’ll understand why the kitchens pictured here are some of our favorite recent projects.
