A full custom kitchen remodel is the ideal solution when a kitchen has significant design flaws or doesn't meet the homeowner's lifestyle needs. It provides the highest level of design freedom, allowing you to overcome the limitations of the old kitchen layout. Whether you require more cooking space or want to reconfigure the floor plan, a custom remodel offers extensive flexibility.

However, it's important to consider the budget when opting for a full custom remodel. Modifying appliance placement, cabinetry, plumbing, or electrical systems involves specialized skills and can be costly. Structural changes, such as removing walls for an expanded or open floor plan, incur additional expenses.

A full custom kitchen remodel may include:

  • Full redesign of kitchen layout
  • Major structural changes
  • Custom cabinetry
  • New appliances
  • New flooring
  • Updated backsplash
  • New lighting fixtures
  • Custom features
