More Homeowners are Fixing up the Bathroom

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Does your home need a little updating? Many homeowners who have put off home improvement projects have decided to start giving kitchen and bathrooms a facelift.

Bathroom remodels have moved into the top spot as the most common remodeling project. What are most homeowners looking to accomplish first? According to a National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) survey, adding a linen closet, marble or granite double vanity and a shower with multiple showerheads top the list.

Homeowners want to create a luxurious and relaxing retreat.
To add a bit of beauty and bliss in the bath, start with the countertop. Updating to granite countertops will make an instant visual update. Next, choose a stylish new faucet to accentuate the area.

Next, think storage. While a linen closet tops the "wanted" list, bath accessories are an easier and more affordable way to add additional storage and organization. While your refacing or refinishing the bathroom vanity, add pull out shelves or a glass door to a corner cabinet.

Finally, update your shower to create a relaxing and spa-like environment. Depending on your budget, you can create the ultimate retreat or simply upgrade your current showerhead.

Kitchen Remodeling Can Help You Sell Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Whether you are remodeling your home for sale right away, or simply to increase the value of your home for resale in the future, the right renovations will make all the difference. Kitchen renovations do much more than provide a cosmetic facelift to your property; they offer potential buyers the necessary motivation to select your home over the rest in your neighborhood. Kitchen face lifts offer the greatest value and resale potential for your home.

Kitchen Face Lift

Kitchens are the center of family activity, so it is no wonder these rooms tend to make or break a home sale. Buyers today are looking for kitchens that are light and airy, open enough for entertaining and filled with contemporary features and conveniences. Consider replacing laminate counters with granite countertops and updating sink hardware for an easy way to modernize the look of your kitchen. No need to replace the kitchen cabinets when they are well made, just worm out. Instead cabinet refacing and cabinet refinishing is a better, faster, less expensive option.

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 11, 2012

As the weather starts to warm and flowers start to bloom, so does the desire of homeowners to get to their home remodeling to-do lists and projects.
 
The top trends in home remodeling based on industry statistics and customer requests indicate that people are choosing to do a series of smaller upgrades around the house rather than tackle larger renovation projects.

The most popular home remodeling job remains a kitchen makeover. Kitchens are the most popular room in the house to remodel. Homeowners in the market to sell their home recoup an average of 81% from their investment in a kitchen remodel. But smaller kitchen upgrades are what are becoming more and more popular. Cabinet refacing and refinishing are the perfect solution to a kitchen that has good layout and just needs upgrading.

Kitchen upgrades offer convenience for those homeowners wishing to stay in their home. Granite countertops, farmhouse sinks, and newly refinished kitchen cabinets are all popular choices.

Bathroom remodels are always a must-do project. Usually costing less than a kitchen remodel, many homeowners are turning their bathrooms into a spa.

New Countertops Add Value in This Tough Housing Market

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 29, 2012

Some home improvement projects do not give you the return on investment to make them worthwhile. However, there are some home improvements that increase market value. Most realtors will tell you, kitchens and bathrooms are where the sale is made.

Wall paint colors are easily and inexpensively changed, and chances are that the new homeowner is going to change the wall colors anyway. Complete ktchen remodels certainly create a wow-factor that will boost the value of a home, but the cost is prohibitive for many homeowners, and the work required is lengthy and messy.

Kitchens and bathrooms can benefit from a significant facelift simply by replacing outdated countertops with new custom countertops. At various price points, homeowners can choose from granite countertops, soapstone countertops, silestone countertops, concrete countertops, and a growing number of eco-friendly countertops.

Not every investment will actually pay off when you try to sell. New countertops, however, can beautify your home while you're living there and still provide great ROI when you're ready to move.

By choosing smart upgrades such as new countertops, a home's value will likely increase. Feature such as these are quickly becoming the standard for kitchens and bathrooms. Potential buyers will often not consider a home without granite countertops since they are so popular and readily available these days. Being competitive is crucial in a tough housing market.

Kitchen Remodeling Options You May Have Overlooked

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 15, 2012

In today’s economy many homeowners are opting to stay put. Others, who are in the market for a new home, are looking for more modest homes, McMansions have seen their day, and it may be passed for a while.

Sometimes it is challenging to envision your home or a potential new home beyond what is in front of your eyes. You may walk into your kitchen, or the kitchen of a home you are thinking of buying and see old cabinets and Formica counters and think, “the kitchen needs to be remodeled, this will cost tens of thousands”.

This is not necessarily so. There are realistic examples of beautiful kitchens that homeowners can emulate. Walk around the kitchen, does it have a good flow? Is the work triangle right? Are the cabinets sturdy, and in good shape other than the color and the pulls? Kitchen cabinet refacing and refinishing is a faster and less expensive option. Add granite countertops and you have a new kitchen.

Homeowners are investing in their homes, but sometimes you can do that with a much smaller budget. Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis encourages home buyers to consider options that you otherwise would have overlooked. We want to help you to envision possible kitchen remodels for less; less money, less time, less stress.
