Giving Your Old Furniture a Second Life

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 30, 2010

Kenneth C Lewis provides professional furniture restoration services....and we do it well!  If you have older furniture in your home and you are tired of it, you can revive it by giving it a new look and a new purpose in life. Frequently, these older pieces of furniture get stuck in closets and attics and are all but forgotten, however with just a little imagination, and help form us, you can put these well-built and sturdy pieces of furniture to work for you in other places in your home. If you have a contemporary home, re-purposing a single piece of vintage furniture and adding it to your space can create a beautiful focal point for your room. By re-purposing an old piece of furniture not only are you making your room beautiful, but you are also doing your part for reducing waste and living green.


If you are working with a piece of wooden furniture, you are probably working with a surface that is less than perfect. You can fill divots with wood putty before painting, or you can embrace the distressed look of the piece. Your imagination really is the only thing holding you back. For example, we can take a simple forgotten little dresser and turn it into an eye-catching vanity for your bathroom. With a multitude of  refinishing techniques (just one of the reasons to trust Kenneth C Lewis), we make your piece of furniture brand new. If you like the old antique look we can spruce it up a bit and return it to its glory, while still looking vintage.


Once we restore or refinish your furniture, move it to a new location.  (By the way, don't forget that we provide kitchen countertop refinishing services and kitchen cabinet refinishing services).  You will be surprised at how much change it can bring to your home if you just simply move pieces around. If you have an old dresser in your bedroom that you are no longer using, why not re-purpose it as a buffet in your dining room. Not only will it look great, but it will also add storage and function to your dining room. And, if you have a mismatched chair in your dining room, why not bring it into the bedroom and use it at your vanity table. You can also use old dining room chair to make interesting side tables for your bed. They can add symmetry and interest to your bedroom space, especially if you do not have a headboard.


Contact us today to find out what endless possibilities your old furniture can have in store for you. Take a look at our popular finishes and see which one would be best for you, we will gladly work with you to choose the perfect refinishing job for your home.


Consumers Are Going “Contemporary” For New Kitchen Cabinets

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 20, 2010

One of our most popular types of cabinets is the contemporary style. People choose contemporary kitchen cabinets because they are more aesthetically pleasing. It is that simple. Good looks matter and nothing can transform the appearance of a dated, worn-out kitchen than the installation of some attractive alternatives. Aesthetic appeal is not shallow or silly. It is natural. The quest for beauty in form is a part of human nature. If you have been considering an upgrade based on looks alone, you should not feel at all uncomfortable with your motivation. You are just doing what comes naturally.

Not only will the cabinets look good to you, but It will increase the overall value of your home. When you have a great looking kitchen, you have a more valuable property. Though some of us plan to stay in the same house indefinitely, most people do move and sell their homes at some point. Those who have made significant improvements and who have done their best to keep their homes up to date always generate high visitation and higher purchase prices than those who do not. You want to get the most from your house when it is time to sell. New cabinets whether contemporary or more traditional style cabinets  help you do just that.  Never forget that the first thing people look at when they are purchasing a new home is the kitchen, and the bathroom.

In fact, the installation of the right contemporary kitchen cabinets will increase the value of your home by more than the cost of the cabinets themselves.  They simply are a great investment and are an investment that you can enjoy on a daily basis.  You certainly can't say that about everything you buy these days.

Are you ready to create a more attractive and comfortable space in your home? Are you interested in maximizing your property's value when it is time to sell? If you answered either of those questions in the affirmative, check out our description and details of our cabinets. You are sure to find something that will increase your kitchen's overall appeal and that will make you happier with the way things look.

Cabinets are not just a place to stuff things. They are an integral part of your kitchen's appearance. That isn't something to overlook. Upgrading your kitchen can produce benefits on multiple levels.


Kitchen Countertop Replacement – The Value Home Renovation

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Most homeowners when queried about home renovation priorities will state their preference for either remodeling the kitchen or bathroom. The professionals at Kenneth C Lewis Cabinet Refinishing and real estate professionals alike know that the kitchen and the bathroom make the biggest impression on buyers.  House presenters also know that making simple changes to either area can add much needed value to a seller's price.

If you are going to modify the kitchen, and you cannot do it all, start with the countertops. This will give you the most valued return on investment.  Countertops come in a variety of materials, including laminate, solid surface, quartz, and natural stone. Make a simple and honest assessment of your kitchen.  If you think your countertops look old or drab, those who visit your home think the same thing.  Realize that replacing countertops does more than simply give a new look and feel to your counters.  Your new countertops will flow with the cupboards, floor, and appliances.
 
Countertop remodeling is a bigger chore than most people realize. Typically, this involves the removal of the existing surface, disposal of old items, plumbing disconnect and reconnection, electrical work, color selection, sink and faucet selection, and more depending on the scope of your project. Is the thought of leaving this to the pros a welcome one?

For most people, the idea of new kitchen countertops is an exciting idea. They can spruce up a home, giving it the attractive feel of a new dwelling. This does not even have to be an exotic material, since any change will bring about a sense of anticipation and newness.  Let's plan it together.


What It Means To Earn An "A+" Rating From The Better Business Bureau

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 08, 2010

We thought we'd take a moment to discuss how Kenneth C. Lewis is viewed in the eyes of the Better Business Bureau (BBB).  Maybe you've noticed the new BBB logo on our home page. We are very proud to display that logo and the associated A+ evaluation of our business. Below we'll share with you what the BBB does, and what it means to earn their respect,  and why it leaves no doubt why you should choose us for your kitchen and other home renovation needs.

The BBB deals with a wide assortment of industries with cabinet and countertop refinishing being just one of many. They pride themselves on being an unbiased ethical agency and their long history of truly trusted business practices has empowered that pride. We carry that same pride in our quality of service in part due to our uninterrupted qualification for the BBB seal of approval. We are contractually obligated to uphold the BBB's "Standards for Trust" and we also agree to prioritize and resolve complaints that are filed against them with the BBB. This sets us apart from other businesses. Non-BBB business is not required to be ethical or resolve complaints. We have zero BBB complaints which is just one of the contributing circumstances to our achieving the highest rating from the BBB.

When evaluating a business, BBB looks at many different factors.   Being accredited doesn't guarantee that a business earns the top grade of "A+". In fact, there are many businesses out there that treat customers well but do not rate near the perfect grade. Good business often get "C" ratings and below.   You need to realize that "A+" earners have demonstrated to the BBB that we go above and beyond in quality and service. There are close to half-a-million accredited businesses in North America with a fraction of those rated A+.
 
When you contract with us for counter top, cabinets, or any other refinishing service, you will see the same quality of service reflected in our A+ rating from the BBB. If you'd like to see the exact factors we were judged against by the BBB, navigate to and read the BBB review ratings page and know that we guarantee you the same quality of service that we've demonstrated to earn their trust.  Of course, call anytime to learn more about what we can do for you.
