Tips for Your Waterfront Kitchen Design

Tips for Your Waterfront Kitchen Design

Design a beautiful kitchen for your custom home with these steps.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, including in a waterfront home! Your kitchen can take on any configuration and style when you design a custom waterfront home, and Shore-Line Construction is happy to help you along the way if you plan to build in Maryland. You can use these tips for your waterfront kitchen design to come up with the best solution for you.

Frame the View

The kitchen typically resides at the back of the house, and this is often where your waterfront view is. A waterfront kitchen design should prioritize the waterfront view as a necessary feature. It should frame the view so that you can look out at the water from your kitchen sink or the back door.

Consider Your Waterfront Kitchen Design

When you build a custom home, you likely will be working with a builder. This builder will allow you to choose between different waterfront home floor plans that you can alter to suit your needs as much or as little as you like. Consider the original kitchen layout of your chosen floor plan and see what you want to keep or change.

Consider Your Kitchen Lifestyle Needs

How do you know what you want to change? Consider carefully how you use the kitchen and what you want to use the kitchen for. Obviously, the kitchen is there so you can cook, prepare, and store food, but there may be certain appliances you use more than others, such as the coffeemaker, the oven, the wok, or the microwave oven. If you entertain a lot, you might benefit from double ovens or dishwashers. If you want your kitchen to be a gathering spot as well, that’s one more element to add to the design.

Consider Your Style

You have all the elements in place: your kitchen layout and all the appliances and seating to meet your needs. Next comes style. This aspect includes materials, colors, and finishes. Just because you live on the waterfront doesn’t mean your kitchen has to be blue and white. You can go with any color scheme and style you like, whether it’s warm and traditional or cool and modern.
