A custom kitchen says so much about you and your family. While the kitchen is often the showcase room that every houseguest sees first, it’s also the room families spend the most time in. Are you a wine-enthusiast with a custom-built wine rack? Do you gather around a marble kitchen island to start your day with a cup of coffee? Are you a serious chef, with professional-grade appliances?
Whatever style of custom kitchen reflects your personality, C.C. Dietz has the expertise to make your dream kitchen a reality. For over 90 years, the Dietz family has built custom kitchens for homeowners throughout York and York County. Our team of expert carpenters and tradesmen have earned a reputation for unmatched attention to detail.
Planning Custom Kitchens
The first step in designing your custom kitchen is to determine what your needs are and how the space will be used. How will the floorplan work with the rest of your home? Will the walkways be easy to navigate and allow for more than one person to work or relax in the kitchen? Will the cabinets and storage areas be easy to access and keep organized?
As the most important room in your house, it’s essential to design an efficient custom kitchen floorplan. You may not know exactly what you’re looking, so we’re here to offer guidance and help you envision how the finished room will look. If you need inspiration, we can show you one of the many custom kitchens we’ve designed for customers in York and York County. To narrow down your choices, ask yourself some basic questions about the custom kitchen you’re looking to have created:
- Do I want a large open plan, or narrower walkways with a central island?
- Where would I like my refrigerator placed, for easy access? Will it be in the way of other appliances?
- Do I want a kitchen island? What will I use it for? Eating area, or food preparation?
- Do I want more than one sink, and where should they be located?
- Where will storage cabinets and pantries be located?
- How large of a kitchen table do I want, and where should it be located?
Styling Custom Kitchens
From sleek and modern to warm and traditional, there’s a custom kitchen style for every home and every home owner. The first consideration when choosing a style for your kitchen is how it will integrate with the rest of your home. A bright, stainless steel and modern kitchen may look out of place in a more traditionally styled home, with dark, ornate woodwork.
Whether you’re looking for a higher end custom kitchen with rich marble countertops and stainless steel appliances, or a more minimalist style with reasonably priced appliances and cabinets, C.C. Dietz stands behind the craftsmanship of every custom kitchen we build in York, York County and throughout the region.
