Tips for Custom Kitchen Design
Ameri-Star Homes helps you achieve a professionally-designed custom kitchen.

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house.  The kitchen is significant because of the obvious functionality for daily living and its propensity to become the focal point of entertaining. Plumbing, electrical, carpentry, and appliances come together here masterfully. In a customizable home, one can begin from a helpful floor plan template to make the most out of your custom kitchen design.


The best design is one in which every component has a relevant purpose working to serve the whole.  In every Ameri-Star architectural design, our kitchen layouts are professionally designed.   Although it may sound difficult to accomplish, it can become easier as you list all the ways in which you’ll use the kitchen and get feedback from the experts at Ameri-Star Homes. With their “Buy Wise, We Customize” program, every step of the home-building process becomes easier and is expertly completed.

Open or Closed Floor Plan?

One of your first decisions will be the kitchen’s layout in relation to adjacent rooms. Will the kitchen be open to the living or dining room? Will it be closed off from the rest of the house? In essence, are you looking for an open or closed floor plan? Each has its pros and cons, although today’s market prefers open-concept layouts.

Preparation Spaces

The kitchen is where you prepare things. You might prepare your meal, prepare a cup of coffee, or prepare a holiday feast. Make a list of all the ways in which you need your kitchen to function. An amateur baker’s kitchen may look different from a cook’s or your average non-chef’s. Plan to have spaces to accomplish your meal preparation goals.


With the countless inventions and modernizations in the 21st century, one can easily fill up their kitchen to the brim with nifty kitchen gadgets. Starting with the basics, however, you’ll begin with the refrigerator, sink, and range. If you go with a double wall oven, you’ll need a stovetop instead. Consider how many people you expect to cook for to decide how large and how many appliances you’ll need. If necessary, plan out how many electrical circuits you’ll need for all the different countertop appliances.


Style is limitless when it comes to custom kitchen design. At Ameri-Star Homes’ design center, choosing fixtures, materials, and colors can be a breeze.
