If you're familiar with Cape Cod, you know there is a signature look to the kitchens here. At Custom Crafted Homes, we believe in quality craftsmanship and seek to provide custom-made living spaces to achieve the authentic Cape Cod look. When crafting the picture-perfect Cape Cod kitchen, there are three key elements we take into consideration.
Kitchen Islands: Large, open-concept living spaces are a characteristic of Cape Cod kitchen layouts. This is why we recommend a working kitchen island to help break up your space and allow for maximum functionality.
Custom Cabinets: There are many options for cabinets when choosing this detail of your kitchen. We consider quality molding for a Cape Cod handmade look. This includes chic hardware to elevate and modernize your Cape aesthetic.
Lighting Fixtures: Lighting is critical when designing your picturesque Cape Cod kitchen. We consider nautical elements such as lantern-style sconces and fixtures with industrial or modern vintage hardware.
Along with open floor plans, your kitchen's color scheme can be indicative of making it feel like a true Cape Cod-style kitchen. Navy blues are a staple in coastal style kitchens, but milky blues, seafoam green, and of course, white are colors to consider for your current design. In some of our recent modern kitchen build-outs, we have used untraditional colors with seascape themes, such as burnt orange, taken from the bits of warm hues you find on seashells. These colors can also work well. We've also seen an increase in design trends gravitating to baby blues and pinks. When choosing a color palette, a white base with a pastel touch won't let you down. When selecting your kitchen elements, it's essential to consider a large amount of white space. Cape Cod kitchens are known for their bright and white aesthetic, allowing natural light to radiate off surfaces. We never forget to consider this effect when helping our customers choose elements such as wall paint, cabinets, countertops, and more. Accent colors can complement the white space in these areas with hardware, décor, backsplashes, and more.

What is your kitchen’s primary use? Once upon a time, the kitchen was meant for food preparation but little more. Today it is a hub for entertaining, enjoying drinks or meals, doing homework, paying bills or simply hanging out. As a result, the kitchens of yesteryear—which were typically small and closed off—do not fit the needs of the average modern homeowner.
At Custom Crafted Homes, we want to help you attain a kitchen that better suits the needs of your family. If you are interested in pursuing a kitchen remodel, reach out to us and we will schedule a meeting for you with our kitchen design specialist. After speaking with you about your wants and needs, our design specialist will create a free no-obligation 3D kitchen design layout. If you do decide to move forward with us, this layout will be used as the speculative design for your kitchen remodel.
Exploring The Difference Between Traditional And Modern Cape Cod Home Style.
What is the difference between the traditional and modern Cape Cod home style? When comparing how Cape homes have evolved in recent years, you will discover many fascinating facts about the evolution of traditional Cape Cod architecture.
Traditional Cape Cod homes were relatively small compared to traditional homes. You'll find classic vintage elements like medium wood stains, bold cabinet hinges, and often one roofline.
In more modern times, homes have evolved to welcome open floor plans, floor to ceiling windows, upgraded materials, including hardware and countertops. Modern Cape Cod homes often mix elements from more modern homes that may not represent the Cape style, like modern light fixtures.
Our customers begin our kitchen design and build process by consulting with our designers and architects. We work with our clients to get what they want. We custom-build their cabinetry with unique elements and fixtures to meet their needs.
If you're anything like us, we find balance in both designs; this is why we specialize in Cape Cod style custom homes. We give you the flexibility to work with our designers and architects to choose the unique modern custom elements that speak to you the most.

Consider These Details When Building An Open Floor Plan Kitchen.
Like with most styles, they naturally evolve over time. Even considering the traditional touches of a Cape Cod kitchen, there are unique modern characteristics that can level-up your look and breathe new life into the traditional design.
For instance, Custom Crafted Homes can open your kitchen up and create a more casual dining setting when going for a more modern design. We could tear down any walls blocking off the kitchen and from the rest of the house. Doors are something not many people may consider, primarily when focusing on a kitchen remodel, but there's a good chance your open-floor plan kitchen has a clear view of the doors in your house.
Traditionally built Cape Cod homes often came with solid wood doors. Our carpenters will refurbish your doors or replace the door with a product that will maintain the home's architectural integrity. A quick upgrade to your doors and hardware can add considerable design value to your home.
We've said it before, and we'll say it again, upgrade your hardware and lighting! It's no secret that this is one of our top design secrets, especially when you're looking to modernize your Cape Cod home. Don't cut corners on the hardware, you'd be surprised how much the eye is drawn to it!
