The kitchen is the center of the house, whether cooking, eating, or socializing, the kitchen is a well-used gathering spot. A kitchen remodel is a great way to add beauty and function to your home. Real estate, building, and remodeling surveys reveal that the one project likely to give you a 100 percent return on the dollars invested is a kitchen remodel. Whether the project is as involved as gutting the room back to the wall studs or as simple as applying a fresh coat of paint to your cabinets and upgrading the countertops, each project is an investment in your home’s value and ultimately, in your enjoyment of using the space. Getting the most from your kitchen starts with a good design and we can help.
The first type of kitchen remodel is a kitchen upgrade. This option entails keeping the same structure and space as your current kitchen layout. Refinishing your current cabinets is a great way to keep cost down while giving your new kitchen a more updated look. Incorporating detailed touches such as glass on the cabinet doors, in cabinet and under cabinet lighting can create a lot of style at a minimal cost. Installing new appliances will give your kitchen a new look with the functionality of today’s kitchens. Selecting stylish finishes and installing pre-fabricated countertops, mosaic backslash, decorative handles and knobs along with updated colors for your walls will give your kitchen a contemporary look while keeping your project under budget.
Mid Range Kitchen Remodel
The second type of kitchen remodel is a mid to high end kitchen remodel. If your existing kitchen layout isn’t working for your lifestyle and you would like to increase the space and add an island or panty then this kitchen might just be the right fit. Moving the layout of your kitchen, which could mean, moving or relocating walls, plumbing, electrical, will likely require drawings to best tailor the kitchen layout to your needs. We can design and build a custom island or peninsula which is a great way to add countertop space and creates a place for the kids to sit and do homework while the evening meal is being prepared. This type of kitchen remodel will offer custom kitchen cabinets with many options for cabinet style, door style, stain or paint colors, in nonstandard sizes with all the accessories to create a beautiful and functional kitchen. A quartz slab or natural stone slab material such as granite or marble will certainly be more costly than a pre-fabricated piece, however, for some clients the look and feel of these materials is worth the extra cost. Glass, stone or tile backsplash are great design elements. This type of kitchen remodel has designer features and will increase the space to cook and entertain in.
High-End Designed Kitchen Renovation
If custom cabinetry, built-in refrigeration and a Viking range are all must haves, you’re talking high end and the price tag that goes with it. Just as with the mid range kitchen, don’t be surprised if everything, including the kitchen sink gets moved. This means new plumbing, electrical, drywall and so on. With this type of kitchen remodel you are gutting the space and starting from scratch. Wood floors, stone countertops, and a chandelier will all contribute to the high-end style and elegance. Well-made, well-crafted and beautifully finished cabinetry in custom sizes will make your kitchen uniquely yours. Reinforce the special nature of the cooking area with a backsplash that draws attention. From the tablelike island to the feet on the sink base, these details let you know that the cabinetry doesn’t have to look like cabinetry. Custom wood panels that match the cabinetry conceal the bigger appliances. Of course you’ll pay more for these details and the high-quality plumbing fixtures, but that cost will ensure the remodeled kitchen is not only a joy to use, but a visual treat as well.
