A Gourmet Kitchen You’ll Fall in Love With

“The fondest memories are made when gathered around the table.”

Families have found these words to ring true, as kitchen tables have become a hub of activity over the past year – for school and work, puzzles and games, and renewed family meal times in the wake of canceled activities.

Providing the ideal backdrop, the gourmet kitchens from Normandy Homes offer a beautiful gathering place for your family’s memory-making moments. The boutique North Texas home builder, with communities in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, allows buyers to choose move-in ready homes or designer-selected, high-end options in our deluxe kitchens.

Top-of-the-Line Cooking Features

Whether you’re a creative home chef or a meal subscription cook, putting together a family dinner in an inspiring kitchen makes mealtime even more enjoyable. Large kitchen islands provide ample space for food prep, featuring your choice of quartz or granite countertops in most home plans. Washing your produce is a breeze in the dual stainless steel kitchen sink.

The gas cooktop range allows you to heat with more precise cooking temperatures, while proving more cost-effective compared to electric stovetops. Plus, built-in microwaves (available in most plans) make heating up leftovers convenient and easy. The pleasing hood discreetly hides the oven vent, which allows you to vent out steam and competing cooking aromas. A stainless-steel appliance package is available to buyers. Finally, ceramic tile floors and the hand-laid ceramic backsplash make for easy clean up.

Comfortable, Open Gathering Spaces

Normandy Homes’ signature open concept, which includes the kitchen/family room/breakfast nook and/or dining area, fosters family moments throughout the day. Kids can complete homework at the large kitchen island while you prep for dinner. You can watch a favorite family show or the evening news while you load the dishwasher. Keeping an eye on young children or pets is another benefit of the open-concept great room.

Beyond family bonding, entertaining is made effortless as guests nibble on appetizers and sip drinks while you put the finishing touches on dinner. Select Normandy homes offer LED recessed disk lighting, as well as modern light fixtures (with optional upgrades) in the dining area and over the kitchen island. Some floorplans, like the Cottonwood in Frisco’s Estates in Shaddock Park, feature a separate formal dining room in addition to a breakfast nook. The open sightlines and natural light add to the inviting aesthetic, offering a comfortable, beautiful hub that serves as the heart of your home.

Ample Kitchen Storage

Owners will appreciate the generous kitchen storage, which includes custom site-finished cabinetry with your choice of finish and raised or flat-panel doors. In addition to lower cabinet storage in your kitchen island, the 42-inch upper cabinets, with staggered projections and crown molding, house plenty of space for your everyday dishes and less-used special serving platters. Many Normandy floorplans include a lit, walk-in kitchen pantry. Plenty of counter space – with your choice of granite or quartz – means you can create a coffee bar or utensil station that is easily accessible.

You may not think about the details of a gourmet kitchen in your spare time, but the gorgeous spaces and deluxe features make it easy to gather and celebrate both everyday joys and special occasions.

Normandy Homes offers both personalized, designer selected home features and move-in ready options. Our single-family homes range from 1,700 square feet to nearly 3,900 square feet, depending on the community. Find your dream home and start cooking in your gourmet kitchen that you’re sure to love!
