The kitchen is the most important room in the home, as it serves many functions, but the most important is to personalize your kitchen design. To find your personal kitchen design style, take inspiration from a variety of places. The kitchen isn’t just one thing, so your design elements don’t have to stay true to one style. Custom building a kitchen allows you to take elements from different places to come up with your dream kitchen. One of the more popular trends that we’re seeing is to mix warm rustic features with cool contemporary design elements.

The above photo is a perfect example of how you can marry country and contemporary design elements. The country elements like the reclaimed hardwood floors, mixed with exposed brick and an open fireplace add warmth and comfort. On the other hand, the white and gray color scheme, along with a modern wine rack and stainless steel appliances, bring a sleek contemporary feel. It’s the perfect blend of two seemingly contrasting styles.

Custom kitchen cabinets

Having white cabinetry in the kitchen is nothing new. Keeping the kitchen light in color is a way to brighten up the room and bring in more light. This contemporary country kitchen features fresh and modern white accented cabinet doors. The cabinet doors use sleek, clean lines for a modern minimalistic design. We’ve chosen modern steel knobs for the hardware on the cabinets and drawers.

Variety of cabinets and shelving

Keeping this kitchen open and bright, we’ve chosen to customize cabinets and drawers in the kitchen island and below the countertops. For storage above the countertops, we chose to forgo the usual hanging cabinets and add open shelving. Mixing up the cabinets, drawers, and shelving keeps this kitchen modern, while still adding warm elements to make the kitchen more welcoming.
