Custom Kitchen | Rolling In Ideas

Coming up with ideas for your custom kitchen remodel can be a lot of fun. Gone are the days of your basic, standard kitchen. Of course, you still need a sink, some counter space, and a refrigerator.  But, there are so many other really cool options out there! If you have an open mind, you can come up with a custom kitchen that uniquely suits you and your individual needs and tastes.

One of the best suggestions we can offer is to let your imagination be your guide. In today’s custom kitchen, the sky is the limit. Even if you don’t know where to begin, there is so much inspiration out there these days. Magazines, Pinterest, and even reality TV can all spark ideas for your ideal custom kitchen.  Take a look at things and places in every day life. There is inspiration everywhere.

Because there are so many options from which to choose, you really need to think about two main factors: style and functionality. First off, the style of your kitchen should flow nicely with the style of your home. Having an ultra-modern kitchen when the rest of your home reflects a country décor may not be the best choice. But, you can have a mix of some contemporary elements in your country kitchen that creates an interesting, yet complementary feel.

Some amazing style elements that you could consider adding to your custom kitchen include the following:

  • Furniture details, such as decorative brackets or furniture style feet at the toe kick to give built-ins the look of unfitted cabinets, which offers a European flair
  • Open shelving to display favorite dishes, pottery, or cookbooks
  • Splashy and vibrantly colorful countertops for that wow! Factor
  • Exposed brick juxtaposed with contemporary stainless steel appliances
  • Curvaceous islands and rounded kitchen sinks that break up traditional angled cabinetry


Having a custom kitchen that functions well for your lifestyle and cooking style can really make things easier when you’re making a meal. For example, how convenient would it be to have a restaurant-inspired, integrated faucet right next to your cooktop? You would no longer have a need to haul a heavy pot of water from your sink to your stove! Or, you could install warming drawers to keep food hot and refrigerated drawers at a kid-friendly level to make it easier to grab snacks on-the-go.

With so many choices, it could get overwhelming trying to figure out which direction to go. No worries. That’s why we have our expert designers on hand to help you create your ultimate custom kitchen.
