3 Questions to Ask Yourself When Designing the Kitchen in Your Twin Cities Luxury Home

The kitchen is the heart of your Twin Cities luxury home. It’s not just the prime location for meal preparation, but also for dining, entertaining, and quality time with the family. Designing your custom kitchen is exciting, but with all of the little details, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. The professionals at L. Cramer are here to help. When planning your dream kitchen, ask yourself these 3 questions:

  1. How Will I Use My Kitchen?

The heart of your home serves different purposes, so it’s important for your kitchen design to accommodate your lifestyle. Do you want seating at the island to allow kids to grab breakfast or snacks? Will you primarily be entertaining? Do you need extra elbow room for more than one cook? Do you want your kitchen to open to a family gathering spot, or do you prefer a separated kitchen? The answer to these questions and many other questions will help our team tailor the space to your needs.

  1. What are the Priorities?

You’ve assembled a list of elements you’d like to see in your custom kitchen. Have you been dreaming of a large walk-in pantry, or a professional grade stainless steel range with gas burners and a grill? Go through this wish list and identify items you have always dreamed of. When we know your priorities, we are able to help create the space that will enhance your every day.

  1. What’s My Style?

It can be difficult to pin down your individual style, especially when different elements from a variety of styles speak to you. Maybe you love the sleek look of modern kitchens, but you’re also drawn to the striking colors found in eclectic kitchens. While you can mix different style elements, finding the common thread amongst what appeals to you will help to form the rest of your kitchen’s design. L. Cramer and the team of architects, and designers, will synthesize your magazine clippings, Houzz ideabooks, and other inspirational materials to identify your unique style.

The answers to these 3 questions are a good place to start on your custom kitchen design. Are you ready to make your dream kitchen a reality? Contact Greg Jurvakainen at L.

"Greg and his trusted team were a valuable resource throughout our building process. He was onsite everyday making sure all tasks were completed on time and completed correctly. He was very approachable and made any vision that my wife and I had come to life. Our building process would not have been as enjoyable as it was without Greg and his team."
