We specialize in medium scale to extravagant custom kitchen remodels, including the following: new cabinet design and layout, cabinet refacing, structural adjustments to accommodate specific design detail, flooring (or heated flooring!) with many finish options, new lighting design and install, detailed tile and/or stone work for wall details or a simple backsplash, and any additional electrical or plumbing required to create your vision.
Because the kitchen is the heart of your home, remodeling can yield a variety of benefits. New kitchens can revitalize a home and bring new energy to a family, drawing them together in a central location for a daily ritual. New countertops, appliances, and cabinetry are just the beginning — a revamped layout, improved lighting, and better storage opportunities are all possible with a well-planned remodel.
Kitchen Remodel Cost Factors
Regardless of scope, the major factors to the cost of any remodel are budget, longevity, and the neighborhood in question. By planning your project around these factors, you can create a kitchen that meets or exceeds your expectations, lasts for decades, and ultimately recoups the original cost during resale.
When planning a kitchen remodel, the number one consideration should be budget. It limits every aspect of the project, including materials, professional assistance, and the appearance of the final product. If you fail to budget properly, the project could fall apart half-finished after funds run out. Also keep in mind that investing in sustainable, energy-efficient appliances can help you save money in the long run.
Depending on the age of your home, you may need to set aside additional funds in case unexpected problems arise during construction. Plumbing, electrical, structural, pest, and mold problems are all possibilities, but unfortunately are difficult to detect until work has begun.
Another important factor should be the length and duration of your intended stay in your home after you complete the remodel. If you're planning to sell your home shortly after the remodel is complete, you may not want to spend too much money and effort on the project. If you plan to live in your home for several years after, splurging on higher-quality items like new cabinetry, countertops, and appliances isn't a bad idea. You'll be able to find daily enjoyment in these aspects and value in repeated use.
If you plan to keep your home for a significant amount of time, you should consider what your neighbors have done with their kitchens. Your kitchen should reflect the best qualities of your home and your personality without going overboard. Comparisons within neighborhoods do factor into buying decisions and market value during resale, so take a hard look at what you like and dislike about other kitchens in your neighborhood.
