6 Reasons to Remodel Your Kitchen

There are a lot of reasons to remodel your kitchen, but the first one is the beauty. Because you never get a second chance to make a good impression. Your family and guests tend to converse in the kitchen more often than in the living room because these days, a lot of families spend their time in the kitchen. They’re gathering together in there, and then it will be very nice to have a nice and new beautiful kitchen.

The second reason is the lifestyle. We believe that the kitchen is the heart of your home because you’ll be cooking there, and then your family will be around you while you’re cooking. That’s what we’re calling it. The kitchen is the heart of your home. The kitchen will be one of the reasons you will be increasing your efficiency because you will be spending a lot of time in your kitchen no matter what. Your kitchen should function optimally. The existing kitchen probably won’t be answering your needs, and that’s why the new kitchen that we’re going to design needs to be exactly the way you want. That’s why, if the kitchen is more efficient, you will save a lot of time, and then you’re going to spend more time with your family.

The kitchens that we have are all eco-friendly, and we call them greener kitchens. You will be replacing your bulky, awkward, energy-guzzling appliances with energy-efficient appliances that cut the utility bill. You’re going to save a lot of money, and you’re going to see from the build that the kitchen that you’re going to get cabinet-wise will be eco-friendly too.

The kitchen that you’re going to get will be an investment, not an expense. Because our customers always say the same thing to us about our contractors, designers, and builders. When you renew your kitchen with anyone, that means you’re adding value to your house. When you remodel your kitchen, you’ll be selling your house for more than you were thinking. That is because the kitchen adds a lot of value to your home.

One of the other reasons that we believe you need a remodel is you deserve better. How do you feel when you visit other homes that have a beautiful kitchen? Imagine being the homeowner that other people are. Imagine being in a home when your kitchen is stylish, functional, and updated. You will take pride in the space. It’s a focal point of your home. Why not treat the kitchen with respect? We believe that you deserve a beautiful, nice, functional, and efficient kitchen.

  • 5% is going to be for your other expenses.

What is affecting the cost? The major fact is kitchen cabinets and the door type. There are a lot of different door types, and some of them are going to be cheaper than the others. That’s because once the door side gets more simple, the price gets cheaper.  The door style gets more complicated, instead of flat, raised panel, or inset or like more detail on the door will be, increasing the price a little bit.

Then one other thing is the door construction. Some of the doors are whatever we have in a solid wood door. We always sell solid doors and solid wood door cabinets. But some of the doors are like the frame of the door you can see on the panel and the frame of the door is being solid wood and then the center panel being plywood because recently the company makes that being price-wise cheaper and like quality-wise, it’s being better.

Then finishing, can be like painting or staining. It will be affecting the cabinet cost too, and then wood species. Wood species is for your cabinet and can be maple, cherry, or burgundy. There are a lot of different types of wood species that will be affecting the cabinet price.

Also, the countertop is one other major factor that affects your budget. We have different types of countertops such as natural and engineered stone. The natural stone we call granite and the engineered stones are like quartz.

Let’s mention a little bit of backsplash, flooring, and accessories. There are a lot of different backsplashes and flooring based on whatever you’re going to go with for your remodel. Here’s what we’re doing; we are trying to find the right door style for you with the right color.

After that, we’re choosing the right backsplash and different accessories for your kitchen, different handles and etc.

The solid wood door is going to last forever. You’re not going to have any problems.
