Custom Kitchen Ideas For Entertaining
Although the summer is just starting to end and your hair may still be wet from the pool, the holidays are approaching, and it’s time to start working on your custom kitchen remodel to ensure all facets of production are done quickly, and in comfort. Warmer months are the perfect time to start custom kitchen construction, as structural changes can lead to drafts until the project is complete, and even basic remodels need time in the event of back-ordered materials or stylistic changes.
If you’ve been thinking of a custom kitchen remodel for your holiday events, DM Building will work with you at every step—from the beginning design sketches to the final construction. Our expert team of custom kitchen technicians have developed exquisite kitchens throughout North County San Diego in time for homeowners to entertain for the holidays, and enjoy the whole year through.
Building Your Custom Kitchen—How Much Space Do You Really Need?
Having a beautiful custom kitchen for the holidays may be the motivation behind your kitchen remodel, but its size and style are going to remain with your home long after the holidays are gone. For this reason, it’s best to ask yourself how much kitchen space your home really needs.
The holidays may bring many people into your home, but for a short period of time. Do you usually host large gatherings? Are there a lot of people living in your home throughout the year? If your family is small, and you don’t normally entertain large groups, building an extra-large custom kitchen for only certain times of the year may not be budget or space-friendly for your lifestyle.
However, if your kitchen is the focal point of your home and you spend more time there than anywhere else in the house; e.g. cooking, working, relaxing, crafting, then investing in a large, spacious custom kitchen may be the best investment you can make.
Also, when it comes to design, large holiday gatherings usually demand a lot of counter top space for prepping meals, wrapping presents, storing tins of cookies, baked goods, etc. But again, ask yourself if you’ll need a surplus of counter space for your custom kitchen throughout the year. Smaller counter tops can allow more space in other areas, such as a roomier breakfast nook, or an extended pantry.
