Custom appeal without breaking the bank.

“It’s all about the finishes,” says Victoria designer Kyla Bidgood. Rather than invest in pricey custom cabinetry sizes or high-end appliances for this builder kitchen, Bidgood mixed-and-matched white inset doors with a white-oak cabinet frame for a contrasting look that’s totally unique—and budget-friendly. She brought in more white via the countertop, which is actually porcelain, not quartz. “We wanted the space to feel tailored,” says Bidgood. “And that comes down to a simple pattern that’s carried through consistently.”
