Modern custom kitchens have spacious, comfortable and functional designs. The kitchen has truly become the centre of the home, your Calgary custom home builder can help you design the best kitchen for your family.  At Sunset Homes, we have seen many kitchen trends arise in modern custom homes

Kitchens are becoming less traditional and introducing more statement pieces. If you love unique patterns and textures, we recommend playing with custom backsplashes. Fun tile patterns are in!

Heavily veined marble is trending for a luxury look throughout the home. Your Calgary custom home builder can help you incorporate marble to make a statement. We’ve seen it on countertops, flooring and backsplashes. It is a sustainable and durable product that adds an eye-catching look to custom modern kitchens. Can you picture marble features in your custom kitchen? 

Play With Colours in Your Custom Modern Kitchen 

Expressive and unique touches of colour are trending in custom modern kitchens. We have seen lots of kitchens that subtly incorporate colour where the majority of the cabinetry takes on a gray hue, while the island cabinetry showcases beautiful blues or greens.

 Are you bold enough to incorporate black into your custom kitchen design? Your Calgary custom home builder can help you design a distinctive kitchen that features black cabinetry with metallic hardware. This colour scheme is growing in popularity, showcasing that you can get creative when designing your custom kitchen.  Check out our blog 3 Things to Consider When Selecting Kitchen Cabinetry and Door Hardware to get excellent ideas.

Functional Additions are Trending in Modern Custom Kitchens 

Style is important, but so is functionality! Your Calgary custom builder can help you create a modern kitchen that implements many functional additions. Pot fillers make pasta night easy! Consider incorporating a built-in pot filler by your stove. Prep sinks are growing in popularity as well; these small sinks are positioned strategically so you aren’t running back and forth across the kitchen. 

Smart technology is a helpful addition we’ve seen in custom kitchens. Your Calgary custom home builder can guide you through selecting the perfect smart appliances for you. Nowadays, there are fridges that can send you grocery reminders and coffee makers are getting better and better at automation. 

Calgary Infill Homes are Including Super Pantries 

Kitchens require storage space, why not build a large pantry to accommodate this with your Calgary custom home builder? A walk-in pantry design and large cabinet space are in for pantries! We have seen pantries that showcase small fridges and drawers with cutting tables to help with prep and storage away from the kitchen. We have seen custom ladders that can roll around pantries to reach each shelf!

Connecting to the Outdoors in Your Custom Modern Kitchen Design
