4 Features Every Custom Kitchen Must Have

A kitchen remodel is a great way to improve the inside of your home, yet you are going to want something that looks a little nicer than all the other cookie cutter kitchens out there. Thankfully, you can customize almost any aspect of your new kitchen, so that it does not look the same as any other kitchen.

Here are 4 features that every custom kitchen must have:

Access to the Outdoors

So many people are choosing to entertain outside, so we always recommend that you create easy access from your kitchen to your deck or outdoor space. By doing this, your kitchen will visually look and feel larger. You will also find that it is much easier to bring food and drinks out to your deck and the dirty dishes back in.


Natural light will make a kitchen look bigger too, but it can be difficult to add multiple windows in this space. Therefore, we recommend that you install skylights, because they will not take away any necessary wall space. These skylights will keep your kitchen feeling bright and airy every day of the year.

Under-Cabinet Lighting

We recommend that you place lights underneath your cabinets, so that it is easier to see when you are prepping for a meal or cleaning up at night. These lights can also be placed on dimmer switches, which is perfect for creating ambient lighting late in the evening.

Island Sink

You may think that we are crazy for saying that you should have two sinks in your kitchen, but once you begin using each one, you will completely understand. Those two sinks will allow others to be in the kitchen with you as they help you prepare food or get their own snack. The island sink is also perfect for when you are working at the island and you don’t want to walk across the room to the other sink with your hands dripping with anything gross.
