Benefits of Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Custom kitchen cabinets offer a number of benefits that stock cabinets simply can’t compete with, including quality craftsmanship, materials you want, optimal storage space, and local sourcing.


Quality Craftsmanship

One of the greatest benefits you reap when you choose custom kitchen cabinets is quality workmanship. Woodcrafting is in our blood, and we strive to offer the best of old-world craftsmanship with the digital technology of today.


Materials to Suit Your Taste

With so many wonderful material options available for custom kitchen cabinets, you can choose the materials that best suit your taste. From traditional wood and wood-based materials to laminate and thermofoil, you are sure to find the materials that will create the kitchen of your dreams.


Optimal Storage Space

Traditional cabinet designs can be quite limiting in terms of useful space. They typically involve a few shelves and that’s it. Custom kitchen cabinets offer unique solutions to fit the shape and size of your kitchen.


Local Sourcing

Another great benefit of choosing custom kitchen cabinets is that you can order materials that are local and offer a broad array of options. Rather than wonder about the origin of the wood you’ve selected, you can choose domestic hardwoods, which will lessen your impact on the environment.

Kitchen Cabinet Design ideas

When it’s time to remodel your kitchen, you want to make sure that you choose the design options that you like best. At Gateway Kitchen & Bath Centre in Winnipeg, we would love to show you all of the designs available to you, as well as guide you to the selections that will provide the best functionality in conjunction with the design. Not sure what you’re looking for? We’d be happy to provide examples of some of our completed projects to aid you in your decision-making process.



When choosing the color of your kitchen cabinets, try to stay away from tones that are too trendy, as you don’t want to be faced with another remodel a few years from now. If you do want to have some pops of color, then consider adding them in with some well-placed plants, pictures, or other small decorative objects. If you plan to sell your home at some point, then it's especially important to avoid colors that are super trendy. Sticking with traditional or neutral color choices will ensure that the majority of prospective buyers will love your kitchen.

Layout Choices in Your Kitchen

There are a number of different ways that you can design the functionality of your kitchen depending on the ways in which you use it. In fact, some layouts are better suited for different sizes of kitchens. At Gateway Kitchen & Bath Centre in Winnipeg, we would love to help you select the layout that will make your kitchen function at optimum. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.

No matter what size or shape your kitchen is currently in, it’s important to keep the kitchen work triangle in mind when selecting a new layout. Since the three main items that you use include the stove or range, the refrigerator, and the sink, they make up what is known as the triangle of workspace in your kitchen. The layout of these three items is vital to the functionality of your kitchen. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the five typical kitchen layouts.


The L-Shape

Your kitchen triangle will likely place the refrigerator and sink along the same wall, as they both need access to the water lines.


The U-Shape

You want the central space of the U-shape to be open for freedom of movement. Ideally, you’d place one appliance on each side of the room to form the triangle of work space.


The G-Shape

Also known as the peninsula design, the G-shape allows the option to keep your cooking, cleaning, and meal prep stations separate. Depending on the design you choose, you could also include bar seating on one end of the peninsula.


The Island

One reason that the island is an attractive design option is that it provides a nice open work space, since all of the major appliances will be placed along one wall. With this layout, it’s important to remember that the work triangle is eliminated, which may impact optimum flow at meal times.


The Galley

Typically found in smaller kitchens, the galley features the three main appliances on each side of the room. Typically, the sink will be opposite the refrigerator and stove/range. Make sure that you allow plenty of space to open appliance doors when working with this layout.

Functional Kitchen Features

We briefly touched on some of the functional features you should consider when selecting the layout of your kitchen. While you want to make sure that the layout offers the best flow for accessing appliances and preparing meals, there are a number of other features that can enhance the functionality of your kitchen.


Built-In Wine Rack

If you are a wine enthusiast, then the wall-mounted wine racks typically found in stores will likely not hold enough. While you can purchase wine racks that stand alone, you may not want to give up valuable floor space. To store your wine in a way that is both convenient and aesthetically pleasing, you consider adding a built-in wine rack. These are easily customized to fit the space and shape available in your kitchen.


Secondary Sink in the Island

Depending on the size of your kitchen island, you may prefer to add a second sink to accommodate all of your meal prep needs. If this is something you’re considering, then it’s important to choose whether you want the main sink along the counter or on the island. At Gateway Kitchen & Bath Centre, we can provide the pros and cons to help you make the best decision.


Wall-Mounted Pot Filler

Pot fillers are a wonderful convenience when you are using large stock pots. In fact, you can even opt for your pot filler to provide boiling hot water to reduce the amount of time it takes to cook your food.


Walk-In Pantry

A walk-in pantry is a feature that many homeowners wish they had. There is something nice about being able to store and see all of your dry goods at a glance rather than opening multiple cabinet doors.


Double Oven

Double ovens are especially handy when you’re preparing a lot of food at one time. If you like to host dinner parties or regular gatherings of friends and family, a double oven can provide an incredible boost to the functionality of your kitchen.


Warming Drawer

Sometimes, it can be frustrating trying to determine the timing of each dish so that they are all served at optimal warmth. A warming drawer could be the perfect solution for keeping food warm until it is time to be served.


Cabinets for Trash and Recycling

There’s nothing that can ruin the appearance of a kitchen quite as quickly as unsightly trash cans or recycling bins. One of the best options to maintain the form and function of your kitchen is to install custom cabinets that keep these items out of sight when not in use.


Spice Cabinet Organizer

Your spices and herbs are an important part of making meals tasty, but organizing them can be quite a task. Instead of digging through them every time to find the jars you need, opt to have a spice cabinet organizer installed with your custom kitchen cabinets from Gateway Kitchen & Bath Centre.
