When it comes to renovating your kitchen, it can be difficult to figure out where to start. Which is why it makes sense that one of the first questions our clients ask is “…so what’s the difference between your kitchens and the ones at a big box store?” A lot, actually!

A fundamental difference is that, here at Canaan, we build completely custom-based kitchen solutions for your home. Now, you’re probably wondering, “how does this benefit me?” Don’t worry, we’ve got that covered too! Keep reading to learn about a few of the many benefits to having a custom kitchen in your home.


So, you’ve decided to renovate your kitchen…fantastic! Now what? With kitchens, there are a countless number of routes you can take, with even more options to consider when you add in your material selections.

To help simplify the noise, the vast majority of kitchens can be categorized into 2 types: custom and semi-custom/prefabricated (aka. think Home Depot or Lowe’s). As mentioned before, Canaan falls into the custom category, but why? Well, let’s stop and think about the “why” for a second. You’re a unique person, and your list of kitchen needs and their order of importance is most likely unique to you as well. So why would you try and make a cookie-cutter, kitchen fit in your home? You wouldn’t (or at least, you shouldn’t!).

With a custom kitchen, every single component of the kitchen’s design and functionality is created with you in mind. During the design stage, you’ll work with our team to create a concept and style that not only matches your unique tastes, but also ensures continuity throughout the home. We’ll also pinpoint your unique needs in order to ensure that the new kitchen will meet, and even exceed, your expectations. Ensuring that, after your installation is complete, you can rest easy knowing that your new kitchen has been made exactly for you.



When it comes to picking the material in a custom kitchen, there are a countless number of options and materials you can choose from, with each possessing their own advantages. And while there are standard components that go into any custom kitchen design, you’ll be able to take your uniquely designed kitchen a step further by customizing the following materials that make it up:

  • Door style
  • Door material
  • Door colour
  • Countertop(s)
  • Hardware

As you can see, there are quite a few decisions that need to be made! Not to worry, however, as our design process will guide you through every decision. Guaranteeing that the space will contain quality materials and exemplify your sense of style.

Our showroom also contains a vast assortment of samples so that you can pair different materials together to get a first-hand experience of how well they match. Not only will this allow you to pick out all the materials for your kitchen at once, but it will give you the peace of mind knowing that you’ve played an integral part in selecting the material. You can even choose a new sink and facet from our wide selection of options!



Keep in mind that, as houses age, they naturally settle. This means that once perfectly straight walls may begin to warp, or a previously quiet floor might start making an unfamiliar noise. While this may seem like cause for concern, it’s actually just part of a home’s natural aging process. However, when it comes time to renovate, it’s vital to be aware of these peculiarities so that they can be accommodated for and offset as much as possible.

When it comes to you, this is where a custom based kitchen can really stand out as your kitchen is designed and built to fit perfectly in your space. Not only that, but we will work with you to ensure that the kitchen flows seamlessly in your home and that it upholds the layout’s continuity and theme.
