The kitchen is probably the most expensive room in a home. Considering the cost of cabinets, counter tops, kitchen fixtures and appliances, the kitchen is not only the most expensive room, it also requires the most creativity in laying it out. Many home buyers consider the kitchen the most important room of a home.
When building a new home the kitchen has the most options to consider. Cabinets can be oak, maple, hickory, cherry, pine, birch and many other types of wood. You can choose these woods in light, medium or dark. There are also "European" frameless cabinets and laminate cabinets available. There are options like glass mullion doors, crown molding, pantry pullouts, mixer shelves, vegetable bins, pot racks and many other conveniences. These options can be decorative as well as functional. Look for concealed self closing hinges, roll out trays and double doweled frame construction.
Designer kitchens are always laid out for easy access to and from the range, refrigerator, sink and dishwasher. There should ample room and easy flow to and from the dining areas. Another important consideration is a convenient and effective lighting plan.
