Kitchen Cabinets: Which Style is Right for You? - MA, RI

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 29, 2014

Refinishing cabinets or getting new ones is not just an opportunity to give your kitchen a face lift. It is also a chance for you to customize and maximize storage and space. So consider not just the quality but also the style of the kitchen cabinets. Make your kitchen more fashionable and functional with some of the basic types of cabinetry.

Base cabinets

They give visible storage space while leaving enough room where you can work. They usually come with either pullouts or drawers. Base cabinets can store not just large dinner plates in them but also good-sized kitchen appliances.

Specialty cabinets

Specialty cabinets provide design flexibility and storage options - more shape configuration, clean symmetry, and cabinet additions. These are custom-built to fit in with the kitchen design itself and to maximize square footage and organization efforts.

Tall cabinets

Tall kitchen cabinets have become stylish over the last few years as a popular part of kitchen remodeling in MA and RI. They offer a very different look as compared to compact cabinets. Considered much more modern, tall cabinets can add significant storage space to a kitchen, taking advantage of the vertical space up to the ceiling that shorter cabinets fail to use.

Wall cabinets

Wall cabinets keep your kitchen clean and clutter-free by taking advantage of the horizontal space. They will hide any disheveled contents. These are perfect for larger kitchens because it provides more storage space for dishes, pans, appliances, and other related items.

Choices for Cabinet Door Replacement – Providence, RI

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 22, 2014

Why replace all the kitchen cabinets when really you only need to replace the doors? When considering cabinet door replacement, you have two choices: buy new cabinet doors or reface the old ones.

Refacing Cabinet Doors
Refacing existing cabinet doors will cost you significantly less. But remember, DIY refacing is a very tough job, especially for the inexperienced. Replacing doors and drawer fonts may be easy, but replacing the veneer is not something the layperson can do. So it is better to get some help from a professional like Kenneth C. Lewis. Cabinet refacing means that the cabinets and doors are removed, refinished, and reinstalled. You can choose what finish, stain, or paint you want to create a whole new look and feel in your kitchen. Choosing this route will cost 50% less than new custom cabinet installation.

Buying New Kitchen Cabinet Doors
When choosing new cabinets, you can still choose what finish, stain, or paint you want. Additionally, you can also choose the style and material. When choosing the materials for cabinet door replacement, you can match them with the current material or you can switch material. However, whichever path you choose, this is a much more expensive and time consuming route because all of the doors need to be custom made and finished.

Cabinet door replacement may take two to three days which means that you can get a ‘new’ kitchen faster, for less. Get all the details you need on cabinet door replacement and other alternatives, see Kenneth C. Lewis now.

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 16, 2014

Office furniture contributes largely to a business' public image. In today's tough economy, a business' budget may not allow for new or replacement office furniture. But furniture repair and restoration makes it possible to give your office a new look without buying brand new office furniture.

Furniture in beautiful condition creates a productive business atmosphere. It is beneficial to your employee's work environment thereby improving their mood and their productivity. An office with beautiful, attractive furniture instills a lasting impression to potential clients. It subtly sends a message that your company is one that cares about its image, is profitable and successful. Thus, furniture refinishing gives clients a good impression about your company, which is a good way to start building business relations.

Furniture restoration for chairs and desks will cost you significantly less than buying new. So invest in commercial furniture refinishing services to promote productivity, improve first impressions and, of course, save on business expenses.

Take Care of Your Kitchen Storage Cabinet to Save Time and Money- MA & RI

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 08, 2014

Stop stressing yourself on deciding what should be inside your kitchen storage cabinet. Instead, focus on organizing the things in it. Cup hangers, peg boards, and shelf dividers make it easier to organize given such a limited storage area. Choose square containers, with labels on them, as they stack easy and well inside the cabinet. Storing similar things together also helps save space.

Decorate kitchen cabinets to update the look of your kitchen. The space above (or below if its hanging) your kitchen cabinet can be a perfect venue to achieve a new view whenever you enter the kitchen. You may also experiment with colors and on styles, Or just prop it up with some unique items to give your cabinets a face lift. You may add personalized photo and frame or a vase of flowers on top of it. You may also add a little detail to the bottom to chunk it. The open area where the cabinet ends and ceiling begins provides much needed space to store other bulky stuff like big baskets or bins.

Owners often fail to consider cleaning their kitchen storage cabinets. Cleaning them prolongs their life and maintains their mint condition. But before you clean the inside of the cabinet, make sure you remove all the stuff in it first. The obvious secret on how to prevent reapplying the dirt you removed from your cabinet is to rinse your sponge or cloth thoroughly and frequently. There are specific cleaning solutions you should use depending on the type of cabinet. So be guided accordingly.

Do not directly decide on replacing your kitchen storage cabinet just to cater the stuff you want to fit into it or change one side of your kitchen. If you do not want to waste your time and spend more money, then learn how to take care of it.

Repaint Kitchen Cabinets Instead of a Full Remodel – Boston, Providence

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 01, 2014

Many homeowners dream of giving their kitchens a full-scale remodel. This can give a kitchen an entirely new look, but the new look does not come cheap. According to Remodeling magazine's 2013 "Cost vs. Value Report," homeowners can expect to spend more than $53,000 on a major kitchen remodel and recoup just below 70% of that cost at resale. So while the idea of a full-scale kitchen remodel might be a dream project, the cost of such an undertaking is beyond many homeowners' budgets.

But homeowners who cannot afford a full remodel can still give their kitchens a new look and can do so for relatively little money. Painting or refinishing kitchen cabinets a new color or giving fading cabinets a fresh coat of paint or stain can instantly add life to a kitchen, giving the room an entirely different feel without breaking the bank. The following are a few tips for homeowners planning to paint kitchen cabinets.

Assess your existing cabinets. Some cabinet materials, including wood and metal, can be repainted. But other materials, including plastic laminate, are not so amenable to repainting and may require refacing.

Plan for ornate cabinets to take a little longer. Painting projects will go faster when cabinets have flat fronts, but they can take longer when cabinets are unique and more detailed. If your cabinets are ornate, then factor this extra time into your schedule. However, refinishing kitchen cabinets takes considerably less time than an entire kitchen remodel. Kenneth C. Lewis is an expert in this field, and will only be in your home 2-4 days!
