There’s no doubt the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to consider when you’re buying a home. After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time there, and you want a space that fits both your life and your style. That’s why we’ve broken down different kitchen designs and features to help you figure out which look is right for you.
When you think of the perfect kitchen, what comes to mind? Do you picture a large space with an island or farmhouse-inspired details like open shelving and shiplap accents? Maybe you dream of pops of color and stainless steel appliances, or you simply want a kitchen that has plenty of storage and room to entertain family and friends.
Here at Clayton, you have many options that will help you create the kitchen of your dreams, including when it comes to the cabinets, flooring, backsplash, appliances and more. Keeping all these features in mind and knowing which styles you’re the most interested in will make it easier to find your perfect Clayton Built® home.
Since the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home, you’ll want the one that works for you and your family. Below, we will go through a few kitchen layouts you can find in our Clayton Built® homes to help you decide.
If you have a large family, you’ll want a kitchen that can provide enough room to cook for multiple people and a place for your family to gather for meals. Try a U-shaped kitchen with plenty of countertop space or a kitchen with an island that includes a breakfast bar or an adjacent eating area.
If you want a more linear design, a galley kitchen is a great option. Galley kitchens are long and narrow, but still provide plenty of countertop and cabinet space and are extremely efficient. Think of it as a sort of assembly line, where you can have a section for prepping, cooking, and plating and cleaning.
An L-shaped kitchen is a great option if you want a more open feel. The shape of this kitchen means you won’t have as much through traffic, and it makes use of corner spaces.
The layout of your kitchen isn’t the only thing to consider when you’re looking for a home – the features in your kitchen matter just as much and should work for your family’s needs while also fitting with your personal aesthetic. If you want a farmhouse feel, consider a farmhouse sink, open shelving and a shiplap backsplash or island. If you have a big family to feed, you might look at homes with a large pantry. Or, if you want your kitchen to be the focal point of your home, decorate with a backsplash in your favorite color and give it a high-end look with stainless steel appliances. (And you can even add pop-up outlets if you have a lot of smaller appliances.)
