In the area of home improvement, Americans love to steal. That is, over the years, we’ve borrowed the best of every culture’s design aesthetic to create a perfect mosaic of form and function. Italian tile. French country sink. German craftsmanship. The list goes on.
So, what is our specialty? Many of the best appliances are made in the grand ol’ USA, but that’s not enough. Americans clearly reign over an even greater domain—custom design. We’ve scrounged from every quaint corner of Europe and beyond to assemble the strongest, most inspired kitchen motifs. We love paying homage to our Old World roots. Still, nothing matches the timeless appeal of our genius space saving and other tailor made solutions. The kitchen is the hardest working room in the home, so it needs to deliver on both form and function.
How might you tap into your fellow Americans’ ingenuity? Here are some keen, unique kitchen concepts that are exciting our country’s homeowners with their powerful designs.
You can nowadays integrate this practical centerpiece in nearly every tiny to expansive kitchen. Utilize smart surfaces like stainless steel, natural stone, or butcher block. Cooks love freeing up countertops for an all-in-one prep and serve space. You can also incorporate shelving or cabinetry, or go for efficiency with a second sink or built-in beverage refrigerator.
Custom Built-In Pantries
Days of the closet-style pantry are gone, especially when folks are trading up their homes for chic but tight city apartments. American carpenters have unveiled tons of brilliant custom designs. From floor-to-ceiling pullout shelves to low-lying rolling drawers, your clients can stock their goods without cumbersome freestanding storage units.
Custom Appliance Garages
Americans love their everyday appliances, but they take up valuable countertop space. Coffeemakers, toaster ovens, and trusty smoothie blenders are terrible eyesores. Conjure up something absolutely unique to help homeowners stow their essentials. With a one-of-a-kind appliance garage, a hidden panel scrolls down to shelter their devices all while blending seamlessly with existing cabinetry.
