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.

For more cost effective kitchen and bath renovations, contact Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis.

Kitchen Remodeling Options You May Have Overlooked

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 15, 2012

In today’s economy many homeowners are opting to stay put. Others, who are in the market for a new home, are looking for more modest homes, McMansions have seen their day, and it may be passed for a while.

Sometimes it is challenging to envision your home or a potential new home beyond what is in front of your eyes. You may walk into your kitchen, or the kitchen of a home you are thinking of buying and see old cabinets and Formica counters and think, “the kitchen needs to be remodeled, this will cost tens of thousands”.

This is not necessarily so. There are realistic examples of beautiful kitchens that homeowners can emulate. Walk around the kitchen, does it have a good flow? Is the work triangle right? Are the cabinets sturdy, and in good shape other than the color and the pulls? Kitchen cabinet refacing and refinishing is a faster and less expensive option. Add granite countertops and you have a new kitchen.

Homeowners are investing in their homes, but sometimes you can do that with a much smaller budget. Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis encourages home buyers to consider options that you otherwise would have overlooked. We want to help you to envision possible kitchen remodels for less; less money, less time, less stress. Contact us for more information on kitchen cabinet refinishing and refacing.


Kitchen Remodeling has High ROI

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 08, 2012

Instead of selling homes today more homeowners are upgrading and updating their homes instead. There are several home improvement jobs with a high return on investment. If your goal is to improve your home’s value, here are the remodeling projects that will give you the most return for your money:

  • Kitchens and baths
  • Decks
  • Siding
  • Windows
You have several choices for bathroom and kitchen remodels. You can spend a lot of money on a complete gut and remodel. Or, you can do it for less, by refacing or refinishing kitchen cabinets and countertops, and maybe a new floor. This will still give you the effect you are looking for, and still have a great return.

Not all kitchen remodeling projects need to be invasive and massive. Sometimes it is just a face lift that you need. Where you live, the materials you choose, and the scope of the work are all factors that determine costs and can make a difference in your budget.

For a kitchen facelift, contact Kenneth C. Lewis Cabinetry today.


Does Your Kitchen Look The Way you Want it to?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 01, 2012

Forget about the living room; the kitchen is the social hub of a home. Today's homeowners want their kitchens to reflect their personal tastes and accommodate their daily lives.

A dream kitchen is one that reflects the way you live. The best advice for anyone looking to remodel their kitchen is to think about how you use it, and how it affects your lifestyle. Do you need a new kitchen layout, or will newly refinished cabinets and countertops suit you fine?

Everyone uses the kitchen to prepare food, but many homeowners use their kitchen for entertaining, crafting, or just spending time with their families.  Often the existing kitchen cabinets are fine, just in need of a face lift with cabinet refinishing or cabinet refacing. This changes the whole look without a whole remodel.

Home Chefs
Food preparation and cooking are the primary functions of a kitchen, but creating an environment for gourmet cooking is a special treat for homeowners who consider themselves "at-home chefs."

Entertainers
For Most parties, everyone ends up in the kitchen. Homeowners who like to entertain should consider whether or not their kitchen is attractive for entertaining. There are several features that can help make the party successful.

A kitchen island helps make entertaining easier. Not only can an island provide extra seating and serving space, it can include great storage.

Open shelving  and glass doors on your cabinets also adds a great design element for a kitchen used for entertaining. These shelves allow the homeowner to display beautiful dishware and glasses; and guests can help themselves to a plate for appetizers or a glass for wine.

Moms
Moms know that having young children can make the kitchen a challenging space, but there are features to make this room more kid friendly. Soft-closing drawers and doors can protect against hurt hands.
