Inexpensive Kitchen Renovation Ideas

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 17, 2012

It is hard to commit to kitchen remodeling if you are afraid that after a few years you may not love  the changes anymore.  Significant kitchen renovations – like cabinets and countertops, flooring and fixtures – require you to live with them for a long time.

With even minor kitchen renovations costing taking a bite out of your wallet, you may be hesitant to spend 10’s of 1000’s on a kitchen redesign. The good news is you don’t need a complete renovation in order to update your kitchen.
Here are some easy, cost-effective projects that can give the kitchen a whole new look:

Backsplashes can be both practical and beautiful, and they can really change the look and style of your kitchen.

Replacing cabinetry can be cost-prohibitive. Plus it’s an expensive tough job to tackle. Fortunately, there are easier ways to update the look of your cabinets. Switching out dated hardware with something new and eye-catching is a great start. Wooden cabinets can be repainted or stained. Outdated trim can be removed. Or, if you love the open-faced look that’s in vogue in many upscale kitchens, simply remove cabinet doors altogether and have your cabinets refaced.

When it comes to window treatments, most people have two objectives: to create a great look and protect their privacy. The kitchen, however, is one room where privacy is usually less of a concern. That means you can lighten up on window treatments, open your design options and create a light-filled look.

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.

Tips for Homeowners on Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Spring is the time that many homeowners start to consider kitchen and bathroom renovations, but right now is the perfect time to consider these renovations.  Plumbers have better availability after the winter heating season and skilled workers are still available before the busy summer season. So when spring cleaning reveals older and worn cabinetry and vanities, call Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.

A full kitchen renovation can cost quite a bit of money based on a variety of details along with the condition of the existing plumbing and electric.  Kitchen upgrades and smaller renovations with a big effect can be done for much less.  Great ways to change the look of your kitchen on a tight budget could include replacing cabinet doors, counter-tops, hardware, flooring and painting to name a few.

Likewise, partial bathroom projects or smaller bathroom renovations with a "WOW" factor can be completed for much less than a full make-over.  Vanity refacing or refinishing, a new toilet and sink, or just a new faucet, and painting are a few suggestions.
