Building a Luxury Home? Here Are 4 Custom Kitchen Ideas You’ll Love

Did you know 98% of Americans say that cooking a meal at home is still their preferred way to prepare a meal? This may come as a shock—after all, it’s easy to have food delivered from your favorite restaurant, right?

However, cooking in your home’s kitchen offers more than just the food itself. It gives you the chance to spend time with loved ones and bond as you prepare a meal together!

Whether you’re hosting company or cooking solo, the kitchen is one of the most-used rooms in the home. But what custom kitchen ideas are best for a luxury home?

We’re here to fill you in. Keep reading below to learn about four of the latest kitchen trends for custom homes!

1. Crown Molding

If you want to veer away from the contemporary designs that have been popular the past few years, it’s time to jump on the crown molding trend. Crown molding has been around for thousands of years, cropping up in the architecture of Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece.

10 years ago, crown molding may have been considered gaudy, but we’ve now entered the crown molding renaissance! Crown molding may not be the most practical addition to your kitchen, but they add charm to any luxury home and will give your cabinetry a more classical look.

2. Outdoor Kitchen

When it comes to kitchen spaces, why limit yourself to just one? If you’re working with a luxury home builder, consider consulting with them about an outdoor kitchen.

Outdoor kitchens are exactly what they sound like—a patio space that has as many or few traditional kitchen appliances and work areas as an indoor kitchen. If you’re a fan of outdoor grilling, an outdoor kitchen addition will make the entire cooking process easier.

3. Chandeliers

When designing a custom kitchen, you’ll want to spend a little extra time weighing your lighting options. A space with windows will give you amazing natural light during the day, but what about in the evening?

Chandeliers are one of the hottest kitchen trends right now, especially hung in the center of the room or above an island. They work no matter what aesthetic you’re aiming for. They fit right in with elegant designs, but they’re perfect for adding a pop of glamor to minimalist designs too!

4. Double Islands

Many kitchens have one island that serves as a place to set snacks, stash groceries on, etc. Double islands are the newest trend though, and they offer both visual and practical benefits for your kitchen.

With two islands, you can use one for prep or to store items and use the other as a casual dining space. It’s perfect for the host who likes to chat with their guests while cooking up a delicious dinner in their custom home!

Build Your Ideal Custom Kitchen

There’s nothing more comforting than a cozy kitchen where you can spend time cooking and spending time with others. With the ideas above, you’ll have no trouble designing your own custom kitchen!
