Kitchen Facelift Instead of a Kitchen Remodel

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Many homeowners, thinking they need a kitchen remodel, only need a kitchen facelift. The kitchen is the heart of the house, for that, it needs soul.

But sometimes, a remodel is just too expensive. A kitchen facelift can be done, a minor kitchen remodeling project, which injects the kitchen with life and soul.

A kitchen face-lift typically involves refreshing a lot of the old and injecting some of the new.

Kitchen face-lifts are all about making the most of what you have, maybe keep the flooring and the cabinetry. Add new backsplash, as well as countertops.

When you have kitchen cabinets that are sturdy and in good shape, cabinet refacing or cabinet refinishing, or a combination of both, is a great, inexpensive option.

Add new appliances if necessary, maybe an island if you have space and Viola! A new kitchen. Contact Kitchen Cabinetry.


Stay in Your Home Just Remodel it

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Many homeowners who want to remodel are faced with the question: Should they replace their kitchen cabinets or just replace the cabinet doors?

Other homeowners have no idea that, depending on the material, they could restore their countertops to save some money, rather than buy new ones.

They want their kitchen remodel to be done right but also economically. They are also sure about one other thing.

They are not interested in buying a new home, just in making their existing home more comfortable by fixing up the kitchen and the bathroom.

The state of the economy and real estate market has created plenty of interest in remodeling projects. But consumers are not spending as much money as they used, but rather looking for more economical solutions. One of those solutions is cabinet refacing or cabinet refinishing in the kitchen and the bathroom.

If you are interested in spending your money more wisely, looking for value, and staying put, contact Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.

Home Improvements ROI

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 11, 2011

If you’re planning on a few home improvements, it's best to know which of them are likely to pay off if you sell your home and which won’t. ROI, or return on investment, should play a part in your plan. Basically, it is how much money you could recoup when you sell. Will that minor bathroom remodeling job be a good investment or not? Should you spend the extra money to fix up the kitchen?

More often than not, sellers can get back a substantial percentage of their outlay for a variety of well-executed improvements if they keep the market in mind.

According to the Cost vs. Value Report a "minor" kitchen remodel (in home improvement speak that's about $20K) is usually a good investment. The national average for cost returned is about 83%.

Keep in mind that spending more doesn't necessarily mean you'll get back a higher percentage later. In the last year, an upscale kitchen makeover, which might involve installing custom cherry cabinets and other luxurious amenities, the average recouped value is lower (about 78%) than for a minor kitchen remodeling project (83%) that is much less extensive or expensive.

This is why you should consider spending less and getting a larger return on that investment. If you have nice solid, but perhaps run down kitchen cabinets, consider kitchen cabinet refacing or refinishing. Contact us.

Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing for Colonial Massachusetts Homes

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 04, 2011

There are many colonial homes in Massachusetts. Often in these homes, you would like a kitchen remodel, but it is important to stay with the period look.

Often in these kitchens, the cabinets are custom made and designed, so they are challenging to replace. Additionally, when considering replacing the kitchen cabinets often you feel s though you may need to remove walls, which would detract from the cozy, colonial feel of the original kitchen.

Cabinet refinishing can save you the hassle and expense of ordering and installing new kitchen cabinets, and will allow you to keep the look of your kitchen and home intact.  With cabinet refinishing, the original cabinets remain in place and the doors are refinished in the look and style you are looking for.

Besides being a less expensive route, it takes far less time; around 3-4 days. Contact Kenneth C. Lewis at Cabinet Refinishing for more information on the process.
