The top reasons why a hybrid kitchen makes perfect design sense
Essentially, a hybrid kitchen is a design scheme that combines both re-cladding and custom cabinetry. Refacing saves a lot of budget so you can reinvest in other features and upgrades. Additional custom cabinetry or a new island creates valuable additional storage space and the visual change homeowners often crave.
The new cabinets that were added during the hybrid kitchen remodel match perfectly with the new, existing cabinet box.
The result is a highly personalized and transformative kitchen design.
This hybrid approach improves the aesthetics and function of the kitchen while increasing the value of the property should you decide to sell down the street.
The 2022 Cost-Value Report states that a small kitchen renovation will return 74.7% of the investment
make it personal
A hybrid kitchen can include any type of custom cabinetry, a desk, or a custom display case that matches the converted cabinetry to create a unified space.
Our design consultants often suggest creative ideas for storage solutions and address issues you probably didn’t even know existed. A good example of this could be creating a designated storage area for dry goods, spices, cooking utensils and other everyday items. All of these improvements go a long way in helping you stay organized.
