19 Feb Let’s Talk About Kitchens
With a new building, the design is incredibly important. You’re making an imprint on the real estate market that’s hopefully going to last 100 years or more.
At Farabough Homes, we help with all of what’s involved in custom home building, but let’s talk for a minute about kitchens and how to set up the right kinds of modern spaces. Putting the proper planning into your kitchen helps to optimize your property value and your enjoyment of your new home. If you cook, you’ll be spending plenty of time in this room! Also, better setups help with efficient dining service and can even help you to get your kids (or yourself) out the door quicker in the morning! Here are some principles of design that can make a big difference.
Sink and Appliance Placement
Every kitchen has its own layout, but many of these layouts follow standard guidelines. When you see our gallery, you’ll see how our modern faucet designs accentuate the workability built into placing sinks and countertops around a kitchen space. You’ll also see how we situate the larger appliances, like grand smart refrigerators and modern electric or gas ranges. Creating a sense of good ergonomic design helps your chef out – whoever that ends up being.
In addition, taking more time and planning in more detail helps to create a custom home that’s going to be a better part of the local real estate market moving forward.
Building In Vertical Solutions
We often talk to customers in detail – about not only the build of their cabinetry but how they want that cabinetry laid out. Sliding-in waste cans, for example, are very much in vogue, and there’s a similar concept where microwave ovens, toaster ovens, and other cooking appliances get built right into the wall. This is a brilliant way to add efficiency to your kitchen layout, but it requires some precise building. It’s the same way with the fish-eye lighting that keeps bulbs and fixtures flush with the wall and similarly opens up interior spaces.
Talk to us about the practicality and logistics of these neat additions to keep your angular spaces smooth and uncluttered-looking in your new kitchen.
Working With the Infrastructure
The blessing of a new building is that you’re not working with antiquated electrical and gas lines, or trying to jam new infrastructure into old spaces.
With that in mind, though, there’s still a need for planning the routing of plumbing, electrical, and other systems to prevent crowding or logistical problems with maintenance and repair.
