Custom Kitchens: The Perks of Custom Designed Cabinets

Wondering if you should invest in a custom designed kitchen? Here's why we think you definitely SHOULD!

A custom designed kitchen is one of the best investments you can make for your home. There are so many benefits of having the space custom designed, from the quality and longevity of your new kitchen to the custom design process itself.

Long Lasting Quality

Custom kitchens will be built using top quality materials. This is the kitchen that WILL potentially last you for the next 20 years. This kitchen is the stuff your culinary dreams are made of!

The key to nailing a long lasting, top quality kitchen is to work closely with your designer or builder to take advantage of their experience and knowledge of not only the design process but also of the various materials and finishes available to you.

You will want to discuss all the various options in terms of materials, colours and finishes with your designer or builder: they will be able to advise on which products will meet your expectations and which to avoid! This is another factor that will affect the quality of the finished product so seek advice and perform your own research too.

Top brands for kitchen products (such as Laminex and Caesarstone for example) are renowned for producing top quality finishes and are an excellent place to start your research. There are of course, many other excellent alternatives and options available to achieve the exact look, feel and quality standard in your new kitchen, which you can discuss with your designer.

Optimal Use of Space

Off-the-shelf and semi-custom kitchen cabinets are always excellent options however, a completely custom designed and built kitchen is created specifically for your space. Every nook and cranny available is used to its maximum potential which in turn allows you maximum storage space, optimal USE of the space and an overall better design.

Designed to Suit You

Perhaps one of the very best points in favour of a custom kitchen is that everything is designed specifically to suit your needs and your lifestyle. Anything you can dream of is possible! Need a built in breakfast nook that cleverly conceals storage? Done! Dreaming of a fabulously large pantry with a roll out chopping board? That can be done too!

Don’t be afraid to discuss your ideas with your designer or builder, as wild as they may seem – you will be surprised at just what is possible in your kitchen design!

Complete Control of Your Design

Working closely with you designer or builder, you will find that you do in fact have complete control over your design. As mentioned, a custom designed kitchen is built to suit your needs and wants so why put yourself at the mercy of standard off-the-shelf products that do not offer this sort of flexibility?

Although we love the cost effectiveness of off-the-shelf cabinetry, you WILL have to make compromises in your design. Going for custom designed cabinetry allows you the complete freedom of control over your design.

Investment into Your Property

Last but most definitely not least, a custom designed and built kitchen is a HUGE asset, instantly adding value to your property. If you are planning to sell your property, any improvements you make will add to your final sale value. A smart looking, quality custom kitchen will attract the interest of your potential buyers, especially those that are looking for a move-in ready home (a huge market, by the way!).

Of course, when renovating a home to sell you will want to take some time to set a realistic budget (click here for a helpful kitchen budget guide) for each space on your renovation list and ensure you stick to it to avoid over capitalising. Yes, this can be done with a custom designed and built kitchen!

So there we have it – a custom designed kitchen will not only work for you but WILL last you longer and will also add considerable value to your home while also allowing you complete creative freedom to create the EXACT look, feel and function you are after in the space.
