Kitchen Remodeling Trends for 2014 - Newton, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 22, 2014

A new year brings new kitchen design trends. There are plenty of new kitchen remodeling ideas that people are excited to put into their kitchens in 2014. Here are the kitchen trends that are popular this year:

1. Engineered stone countertops; they don’t chip or stain like granite and the other natural stones can, and are gaining popularity in homes with children.

2. Open Concepts; homeowners want to create a space that allows more people to gather in and around the kitchen instead of compartmentalized areas.

3. Gray; either gray stained cabinetry or gray painted walls, gray is definitely the new beige.

4. Stainless steel hoods with beautiful backsplashes; instead of just the hood being a focal point, it allows the whole area to become a focal point.

5. Open shelving; it draws the eye upward and breaks up a space that’s heavy with cabinetry. Refacing cabinets is a great way to speed up the job, save time and money, and save on resources. With cabinet refacing, shelves or glass doors can be added as well.

6. Glass tile backsplash; it adds beautiful texture to a kitchen and isn’t found in every kitchen you walk into.

7. Large kitchen islands with seating; as the kitchen becomes more of an entertaining space, homeowners like to incorporate seating around the island to make the kitchen even more inviting for guests.

8. Prep sinks in addition to main sinks; this is ideal for families who typically have two cooks in the kitchen, allowing both people to work without bumping into one another.

9. Beverage centers; they help the traffic flow in a kitchen, especially while entertaining.

10. Quality products; people want to remodel their kitchen with quality materials and products that won’t need repairs or replacing in a few years.

Use Existing Cabinets for a Green Kitchen Remodel – North Attleboro, Providence

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 17, 2014

As a nation we have become more aware of waste and recycling. One of the most obvious reasons that we recycle is because of our landfills. Landfill use peaked in the 1980s when we threw nearly 150 million tons of trash each year into landfills.(Discovery.com)

This is only one thing to think about when considering kitchen remodeling. If waste reduction is a concern in your household, consider remodeling green by refacing or refinishing existing kitchen cabinets.

By forgoing removing and dumping existing cabinetry, you can relieve landfills of this massive amount of remodeling waste.

Refacing cabinets or refinishing cabinets allows you to make your home look better, and work better for you and for the environment. Want a cleaner planet? Salvage materials and use your existing cabinets. If you like your kitchen layout, and if your cabinets only need an updated look, refacing or refinishing cabinets is the greener, less expensive and less time consuming option.

When you use existing cabinets into your kitchen remodeling project, your project costs less than new products, and last longer at the same time. This is especially the case when you are trying to match or create a style from a certain period or time of construction in an older home.

Another plus? When you choose to re-use your existing cabinets again with cabinet refacing, you reduce disposal costs and help our local economy by creating jobs for local contracting companies that specialize in these environmentally friendly services.Today, we throw away more than 100 million tons of garbage every year. That means that in many places, landfill space is scarce In addition to lessening the burden on our landfills, refacing or refinishing kitchen cabinets minimizes the demand for tree harvesting, water, energy, and other natural resources, as well as toxic materials used to process, manufacture and transport new materials.

Cabinet Refacing Options for a Whole New Look – Newton, Cambridge, Brookline

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 16, 2014

Cabinet refacing experts can brighten any kitchen for a fraction of the cost of a full kitchen remodel. Homeowners choosing a cabinet refacing company will have less stress, less kitchen disruption and a beautiful kitchen with a new look and feel in far less time.  Cabinet rafacing offers kitchen improvement options without the hassle of demolition and total replacement of your cabinets. This is an excellent choice if the existing cabinets are outdated but in good shape, and if you like the layout of your kitchen. Kitchen cabinet refacing is a good choice if the basic structure of the cabinetry is intact but the doors have become worn and tattered as a result of use over years.

Refacing cabinets can be accomplished by filling in any existing cracks, sanding, painting or staining the cabinets. This affords you the opportunity to update your kitchen color to something more trendy or updated. Cabinet refacing is cheaper than buying all new cabinets and involves the replacement of the door and drawer fronts. This is usually done with your existing countertops in place if they are in good shape.

Another cabinet refacing option for custom cabinets includes refacing with veneer. This is an option for when your kitchen cabinets are made of a wood, like plywood, that does not respond to refinishing with stain or paint.

Another option is entirely removing and replacing all or some of the cabinet doors. This is a more affordable option than replacing all the cabinetry and will still offer the kitchen a whole new custom look.
