Our Helpful Tips for Kitchen Remodeling

Very few home improvements are more significant for purposes of lifestyle improvement, not to mention resale value, than kitchen remodeling. A well done remodel provides a beautiful new look for your home, and the usefulness of modern appliances and countertops can’t be overestimated.

Of course, the design and construction phases can be complex. But a qualified local home remodel contractor can become a part of the process very early, helping you to make decisions that will make a big difference in how you manage time and budget. We put together a short guide to walk you through the important parts, and would be happy to hear from you if you’d like a quote and our guidance.

Budget Considerations

Determine early on the scope of the changes you require. For example, kitchen remodel jobs can involve flooring, countertops, cabinets, appliances, walls and paint. It’s a great idea to carefully weigh your priorities in the case of a limited budget.

We would be happy to discuss your options, and help you to understand where cost and benefit collide. In other words, we want to create the kitchen of your dreams, not pounce on a project designed only to line our pockets.

The Planning Phase

Begin by grabbing a notepad and pencil. Gather the family around the dining room table and begin to sketch the changes necessary to modernize your kitchen. For example, if you’ll be changing appliances, do you favor stainless steel or a particular color? Is there a need for convenience items such as a lazy susan, perhaps a garbage chute?

And don’t forget about your plans for cabinets. The facing of your cabinets is an enormous footprint within your kitchen and an attractive look, one that complements the appliances and color scheme of your flooring and walls is crucial.

Modernizing Appliances

There have been spectacular advances in the technology behind refrigerators, dishwashers and ovens. We will help you make great choices depending on your priorities.

Things to consider include the size of your family, the amount of entertaining you may or may not do, and access to utilities such as gas. We will be happy to help you narrow down the selection.

Choices in Cabinetry

The selection available for kitchen cabinets is massive these days. Do you favor hardwoods like cherry or oak, or perhaps a pine? These choices can make a significant difference in terms of cost, not to mention durability.

You might want to visit our showrooms to appreciate how we’ve paired both warm and modern cabinets with a wide array of flooring and appliances to see if anyone style is best for you.

Your Kitchen Countertops

Once you’ve begun to put together the aesthetic pieces of the puzzle, namely your cabinet and appliance appearances, you’ll want to complement all that work with lovely countertops. These come in a variety of materials and colors, and a qualified home remodel contractor will be best at describing these options.

Interior Paint

We feel that first selecting appliances, countertops and cabinetry is crucial to arriving at the perfect color for your walls. Clearly, any color can be created in today’s mixing station, and so paint has been rendered more a complement than ever. Gloss, semigloss, we have it all covered.

Home Remodeling

This is the optimum range for homeowners to spend and expect to recoup during a home’s resale.

The fact you’ll be living in the house for years to come means that you’ll continue to find value in their repeated use.

This could reflect poorly when potential buyers are perusing and comparing homes in the area.

If your cabinets are dated or damaged, potential buyers may walk away with a bad impression. The cost of new cabinets varies depending on whether you opt for custom or stock cabinets. Stock cabinets ($80 – $400) are pre-made and sold in home improvement stores.

They are affordable, but can be found in a limited number of designs and sizes.

Semi-custom details include resizing drawers and door fronts and increasing or decreasing cabinet depth. Custom cabinets ($500 – $1,500) are designed however you want them to look. Start with a standard cabinet and add on anything you want to meet your kitchen’s needs.

These are the most expensive and often require a skilled carpenter to create. Refacing involves removing the old cabinet doors, door fronts and any hardware. Next, select new elements and apply a wood veneer that matches the rest of the cabinet.

With refacing, you don’t have to replace the entire unit cabinet and still get a brand new face to your cabinet for a fraction of the cost.

Refinished cabinets ($1,400 – $3,500) are less expensive than refaced ones. This process involves removing, sanding and staining the drawer fronts or doors. The end result is cabinets that look almost brand new without having to replace any of the parts.

You’ll probably need to hire a professional if your cabinet fronts are particularly dinged up, or if you’re worried about how to proceed with either project. If your objectives are to improve your home’s value, though, skimping here can prove self-defeating. You should probably avoid buying most appliances used, but you can usually find appliances at an outlet store that are just a little dinged up from transport or used as displays in stores.

These don’t have all the extra features or technology that more expensive models do, but they can still do the job and will work in most kitchens. Determine whether you need to upgrade your electrical board to accommodate that new refrigerator or oven – which can cost $1,000 on average.

This is often an overlooked expense that most homeowners don’t think about until the project is already underway. Make sure you have an electrician on hand to guide you through the process instead of just plugging everything in and hoping for the best. If at all possible, try to avoid moving your gas lines.

The process involves moving and running additional gas lines in a kitchen, plus you have to upend flooring and knock out walls to get to the gas line.

You will also have to acquire a permit to mess with natural gas lines. Interview three or four candidates for the position and make sure you check their backgrounds and past work thoroughly.

Make sure to check HomeAdvisor reviews , as well as other sources. Set aside a good chunk of money to cover any of those unexpected expenses. About 20 percent of your estimated project cost, or around $3,000 to $5,000 is a good amount to save for surprise turns of events.

From there, the plan goes to the local building permit office and onto the record for your home. If you don’t sign a contract with your contractor, he or she might not be held liable for any mistakes or misunderstandings. You do not want to be saddled with additional repairs after the fact, so make sure you get in writing the scope of the project and his or her responsibilities.

In addition to a full project description, the contract should also include the cost estimate and timeline.

Homeadvisor.com is simple to use (I’m not very computer savvy) and is the first site that doesn’t require extra passwords, etc! This is for professionally designed and expertly installed work including appliances with a licensed, bonded, and insured firm.

This article gives me an average cost, for of my future plans and what is important to me! Most importantly is the value of the many types of product, because I plan to stay in my town house until whatever happens to me. Also I plan to keep this site of r future references. I came across home advisor which was I gave to say VERY informative!

Good luck with that when choosing the lowest bidder for each category.
