Custom kitchen remodeling projects for smaller spaces can take on a dramatic theme when interior designers decide to play up cabinetry with color and add other decorative pieces for layered texture. For example, the cabinetry of a California bungalow that was just steps from the beach were painted the subtle slate blue of the nearby ocean. Alternately, a Midwestern country cottage was rejuvenated when a surprising shade of yellow graced kitchen cabinets.
Although homeowners personally enjoy the finished results of their custom kitchen creations, they must be prepared to hone their hospitality skills a bit. Professionally inspired custom kitchen remodeling projects often result in living spaces that attract family and friends for spontaneous dinners and entertaining.
