The Benefits to Cabinet Refacing

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 13, 2013

You love your home, but your kitchen needs a facelift. New cabinets are out of the question, the cost is too prohibitive. There is another solution. Cabinet refacing is a popular alternative to replacement. Updating your kitchen by refacing the cabinets can be a very effective way of updating your kitchen.

What is cabinet refacing? This is replacing only the doors and drawer fronts and applying a matching wood veneer to the existing framework. Homeowners can save thousands of dollars by choosing kitchen cabinet refacing and you can achieve the look you are after.

There are also several benefits to choosing this option. Cabinet refacing is far more cost effective than replacement; replacing cabinets is very inconvenient and can keep you out of your kitchen for weeks where cabinet refacing can be done in 2 days; and finally, it will give your kitchen an entirely new look.

Keep Kitchen Remodeling Costs Down

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 06, 2013

A kitchen remodel is one of the more common home upgrades. Styles change, new technologies improve old appliances and your kitchen gets a lot of use.
 
For an inexpensive kitchen remodel you'll have questions to answer.

  1. How big is your budget?
  2. How much remodeling will your budget allow?
  3. How much (if any) of it will you do yourself?

Find out how much you can afford to spend. Then work within that budget. In fact, you probably should only plan on spending about 90% of your budget. Kitchen remodeling projects tend to uncover a surprise or two.

Once you have a budget number, decide how much remodeling you can fit within that budget.

There are a lot of less-expensive options available. You might want to refinish cabinet doors. Or if the underlying cabinets are sturdy and in good shape, cabinet refacing could be a good choice.

Make the little things count. People tend to notice things such as drawer pulls and handles. You might get more impact by spending an extra dollar on each of the 18 drawer pulls and handles instead of spending hundreds more on the cabinet doors.

Choose your contractor carefully. Get three bids on any work that a professional will do. And check contractors' references. Make sure they're bonded and insured. Agree in advance on how you'll be billed for unexpected problems that add to the labor.

Planning Kitchen Remodeling?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Kitchen remodeling gives homeowners one of the highest ROI, which ranges from 80 to 105% of the money invested in the remodeling project. There are many ways to renovate a kitchen that will allow for extra space as well as water and energy conservation.

The value of a home can increase dramatically in direct reflect of a well-planed kitchen Remodeling. Creative and appealing renovations will not only help to attract more potential buyers, it will effectively sell a house in a shorter period of time. Regardless of the size and budget set aside for kitchen remodeling, the worth of a fairly inexpensive and well-planned renovated kitchen is priceless.

There are many things to consider when starting a kitchen remodeling project.  Here are some Guidelines:

Setting a Realistic Kitchen Remodeling Budget-
Homeowners should start with a careful examination of their finances to come up with a realistic figure that they can afford to spend on a kitchen remodeling project. Then find an answer to this key question: are they going to stay in the home for five years or less? Then the kitchen renovation should be viewed as an investment on their home. If they are going to be there for a longer period of time, it’s essential to keep in mind their family needs and to consider what's going to give them the most satisfaction through the years to come.

Kitchen Cabinets-
The kitchen cabinets can be the most challenging part of kitchen remodeling and improvements. They project the greatest visual impact to the space, and as far as their cost they have the largest impact on the budget. But they don’t need to. There are other options for your kitchen cabinets to bring any kitchen to life.

Kitchen cabinet refinishing and refacing is an inexpensive option that leaves you with cabinets that look new and eye catching. What is the best part? You are not stuck with a price tag that leaves you skimping in other areas. Refinishing and refacing cabinets is significantly less than buying new cabinets and no one, not even you, will know the difference.

Choosing the right layout-
Choosing the layout of the room is crucial in making a beautiful, practical and feasible kitchen design. Through years of experience, regardless of the size of the kitchen, any expert in home remodeling will know how to utilize the space to achieve the maximum storage and prep area.

The basic "Island" or "kitchen triangle" is a tried and trendy design that not only adds to storage space, also allows for optimum flow and performance in a kitchen layout. But it’s important to keep the set budget in mind when thinking of the kitchen layout, as changing the existing layout may require changes to the pluming and ventilation system which can add much more to the cost of the kitchen remodeling.

Home Renovations Spending Tops New Construction

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 20, 2012

Home makeovers have never been more popular. Spending on remodeling has topped new construction for the first time nationwide.

Many people are buying homes for the first time that have older kitchens. These homes need renovation work. The home is in the right price range, and the layout works, so new homeowners are doing the work to make the home right.

This is not uncommon. More people are opting for home remodeling rather than building new than ever before.

A lot of people love where they live, and they don't want to build, they don't want to move. So, it gives you that option of staying in the school district, getting that fresh new look, and working with the space that you have.

Remodeling can give a home an updated feeling, and keeps the resale value up. And an easier, less expensive way to update a kitchen is by using the old cabinets rather than buying new. Kitchen cabinet refacing and refinishing is a better, greener way to rehab an old kitchen.

With a new kitchen and new flooring and paint, homeowners can have the home they were looking for.

Angie's List of Kitchen Renovations

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Not only is an outdated kitchen unattractive, but it can also make cooking challenging. Unfortunately, kitchen remodeling is one of the most expensive home improvement projects.

There are some ways that homeowners can update their kitchens without breaking the bank. These updates can lead to a more attractive kitchen that is also more pleasant for cooking and entertaining:

Angie's List tips: Simple kitchen updates

Remodel kitchen cabinets and shelves: Obtaining a completely new set of cabinets can be very expensive, but homeowners can hire a kitchen remodeling contractor to update, not replace, the cabinets inexpensively. Some common updates include adding slide-out shelves, lazy susans, drawers and new hardware, refinishing or refacing the cabinets. Painting or refacing cabinets is an aesthetically pleasing idea.

Install a new countertop: new countertop installation can take place in a single day, so homeowners may be able to find a contractor who will charge a reasonable rate for this upgrade. Corian or Granite countertops or some other material change the entire look and feel of your kitchen.

Update the faucets: A new kitchen faucet is a small addition, but it can change the look of a kitchen, making it appear more modern or refined.

Install new lighting: Lights that are too bright can give the kitchen a glaring, unfriendly look. Light that is too soft can make it hard to work. However, homeowners may want to consider installing several types of lights, in various places.

Add a garbage disposal or trash compactor: These appliances are relatively inexpensive and can be installed by most home builders. However, they can go a long way in making a kitchen more modern and practical.

Get a "Magazine" Kitchen for Less

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Empty Nesters who were considering downsizing, opted to stay and upgrade their home instead because they loved their location.
 
They decided instead to give their colonial a new look by updating the kitchen (keeping resale in mind).

They wanted to get the most for their remodeling dollars, so they had to decide what was worth the splurge and where they could save money. They learned that when it comes to kitchen remodeling, you can get the magazine look without breaking the bank.

They knew how they wanted the kitchen to look as far as light and color. But, to save money, they decided to keep most of their cabinetry.

But to get the kitchen they wanted, they removed some of the cabinets and refinished the cabinets with the lighter finish they had been looking at. The cabinet refinishing only took 3 days. For two of the cabinets they had the doors replaced with glass doors.

They also added a kitchen island of the same color.

One of the keys to saving on a kitchen remodel is to keep the existing cabinetry, spending money on countertops and hardware, and lighting.

They also splurged on an iridescent backsplash. Backsplashes give kitchens a high-end look at a variety of price points.

Getting started on building the kitchen of your dreams within a budget requires research, contact Kenneth C Lewis for details.
