November 7, 2022

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It's where you cook, eat, entertain, and make memories. You probably spend more time in this room than any other in your house, so it's important to make it a reflection of your personal style.

At Gemcraft Homes, we want you to love your home for years to come. That's why we offer a variety of ways for you to build your kitchen so that it perfectly suits your needs and taste. Keep reading to learn 5 ways to personalize your kitchen with Gemcraft Homes.

1. Choose Your Countertops

Your countertops are one of the first things people see when they walk into your kitchen. And they're one of those features that really makes or breaks the look of the space. 

There are so many different types of materials to choose from:

  • Granite
  • Quartz
  • Laminate

Each one has its own unique look and feel, and the cost varies widely. In our Design Center, you can see and touch a wide range of the most popular countertop options. Plus, our Community Sales Managers can educate you on the benefits of each option and help you choose the perfect countertops for your needs and budget.

2. Choose Your Lighting

Lighting is another important element in your kitchen. It can really set the mood for special occasions or just everyday life. And there are lots of different ways to personalize your kitchen lighting:

  • Do you want stylish pendant lights over your island for a chic, modern look?
  • Or classic recessed lighting for a more subdued feel?
  • What about under cabinet lighting to make food prep easier?

Consider how you want to use your kitchen and what ambiance you want to create. Then choose lighting that will help you make the most of the space.

3. Choose Your Fixtures

Your faucet, sink, and hardware are also important elements in your kitchen that are easily overlooked.  But these fixtures can really make a statement!

A sleek, modern kitchen might be best with stainless steel fixtures, while a warm and inviting kitchen might be best with copper, bronze, or brass fixtures.

And do you need a pull-out faucet or sprayer? Single or double sink? Undermount or drop-in sink? Again, think about how you want to use your kitchen and choose fixtures that will make your life easier.

4. Choose Your Cabinets

Homeowners these days are really making a statement with their kitchen cabinets! We're seeing everything from bold colors to open shelves and even hidden storage solutions.

Classic white is always a popular choice, but more and more people are choosing darker colors like nightfall. And two-toned cabinets are also gaining in popularity.

You can play around with the options and see your Gemcraft Homes kitchen come to life with our virtual kitchen designer. It's a fantastic tool that lets you customize every aspect of your kitchen from the comfort of your home!

5. Choose Your Flooring

Flooring takes up a lot of real estate in your kitchen, and it's constantly subjected to spills, dropped dishes, and tracked-in dirt. That's why it's important to choose a flooring material that can stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life (but still looks good!).

There are lots of different types of materials to choose from for kitchen floors:

  • Tile
  • Wood
  • Laminate
  • Vinyl
  • Linoleum

The top pick for our floor plans tends to be luxury vinyl plank flooring because it's durable, relatively affordable, easy to care for, and comes in a wide range of styles.

Personalizing your kitchen is an important part of making your house a home. With so many choices available from Gemcraft Homes, you're sure to find the perfect combination of elements to build your vision. Visit us today and let us help you create the kitchen and home of your dreams!
