Kitchen Remodeling without a Loan – Boston, Newport

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Have you been thinking about remodeling your kitchen? You are not alone. Home renovations are picking up. But, at the same time, home improvement loans are down almost 18% from this time last year. The blame has been put on the banks for tightening their belts when it comes to lending money.

But, if you want to remodel your kitchen, you don’t need to spend a fortune. In fact, you can get an entirely new look and feel in your kitchen for a fraction of the cost. Maybe you don’t need a loan.

Cabinet refacing is a faster and far less expensive way to dramatically change your kitchen.  Kitchen cabinet refacing is an alternative to refinishing or replacing the cabinets.  Although cabinet refacing is less expensive  than all new cabinets, it is still considerably more expensive than cabinet refinishing. Cabinet refacing involves the replacement of the door and drawer fronts and installing a veneer of new wood over the existing cabinets. This is usually done with your existing countertops in place if they are in good shape.

For a higher quality solution, you can reface cabinets without using veneers. You can get a brand-new kitchen in an affordable price, when you reface your cabinets by replacing doors and drawers that are custom-built with soft close slides and high-end quality lacquer finish moldings.

If you pay out of pocket for your kitchen remodel, it’s important to love your space – and love living in it, regardless if you are looking at selling or staying after your re-model. In the end, you want to make your money work for you and bring you comfort, convenience and possibly more money in the long run.

Home Renovations that Add Value to a Home

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Home renovations can add value to your home. Even if you do not plan to sell your home or take out a home equity loan, adding function through a few home renovations is something worth doing.
But remember that not all home renovations prove to be beneficial in the end. Consider two important factors before you take on any project.
1. Will this project add value to my home?
2. Will this home add function or improve my overall satisfaction with my home?
If you answer yes to either or both of these things, it may be time to tackle that renovation project.
Top 2 Projects for This Year
The following two projects are going to add value to your home from the view of an appraiser.
1. The Kitchen - It is the single most important area of the home and remodeling it, upgrading it and sprucing it up does both improve its function for your needs and add value to it in the long term. Your goal here should be to modernized - invest in energy efficient appliances, instead of replacing cabinets you can reface or refinish the cabinets, and add lighting.
2. Remodel the Bathroom - Add a bathroom or remodel the ones you have. This is one of the best ways to add value to a home especially if you do plan to sell. Master bathrooms add more value than others do, but any full bath (with a tub or shower) is also an important advantage. Modernize with new fixtures or reface or refinish the cabinetry.
