Our Helpful Tips for Kitchen Remodeling

Very few home improvements are more significant for purposes of lifestyle improvement, not to mention resale value, than kitchen remodeling. A well done remodel provides a beautiful new look for your home, and the usefulness of modern appliances and countertops can’t be overestimated.

Of course, the design and construction phases can be complex. But a qualified local home remodel contractor can become a part of the process very early, helping you to make decisions that will make a big difference in how you manage time and budget. We put together a short guide to walk you through the important parts, and would be happy to hear from you if you’d like a quote and our guidance.

Budget Considerations

Determine early on the scope of the changes you require. For example, kitchen remodel jobs can involve flooring, countertops, cabinets, appliances, walls and paint. It’s a great idea to carefully weigh your priorities in the case of a limited budget.

We would be happy to discuss your options, and help you to understand where cost and benefit collide. In other words, we want to create the kitchen of your dreams, not pounce on a project designed only to line our pockets.

The Planning Phase

Begin by grabbing a notepad and pencil. Gather the family around the dining room table and begin to sketch the changes necessary to modernize your kitchen. For example, if you’ll be changing appliances, do you favor stainless steel or a particular color? Is there a need for convenience items such as a lazy susan, perhaps a garbage chute?

And don’t forget about your plans for cabinets. The facing of your cabinets is an enormous footprint within your kitchen and an attractive look, one that complements the appliances and color scheme of your flooring and walls is crucial.

Modernizing Appliances

There have been spectacular advances in the technology behind refrigerators, dishwashers and ovens. We will help you make great choices depending on your priorities.

Things to consider include the size of your family, the amount of entertaining you may or may not do, and access to utilities such as gas. We will be happy to help you narrow down the selection.

Choices in Cabinetry

The selection available for kitchen cabinets is massive these days. Do you favor hardwoods like cherry or oak, or perhaps a pine? These choices can make a significant difference in terms of cost, not to mention durability.

You might want to visit our showrooms to appreciate how we’ve paired both warm and modern cabinets with a wide array of flooring and appliances to see if anyone style is best for you.

Your Kitchen Countertops

Once you’ve begun to put together the aesthetic pieces of the puzzle, namely your cabinet and appliance appearances, you’ll want to complement all that work with lovely countertops. These come in a variety of materials and colors, and a qualified home remodel contractor will be best at describing these options.

Interior Paint

We feel that first selecting appliances, countertops and cabinetry is crucial to arriving at the perfect color for your walls. Clearly, any color can be created in today’s mixing station, and so paint has been rendered more a complement than ever. Gloss, semigloss, we have it all covered.

Home Remodeling

Many bathrooms feature white – whether fixtures or vanities – but going to the dark side, with black featured heavily in accessories, fixtures and tile.

Check on the company’s background — Indy Renovation has been awarded a Presidential Award for Excellence in Business, is a 5-time recipient of the Baltimore Consumer’s Choice award, and has an A+ rating with the BBB. It’s often essential to the home and the homeowner’s health that water-damaged or moldy structural elements such as the framing or subfloor be repaired prior to covering it again during the renovation process.

You can add glass shower doors and frames to an existing shower enclosure or bathtub/shower unit to give it new appeal while limiting the need for a whole-shower renovation.

Our Aberdeen Proving Ground contractors are fully licensed and insured, and undergo rigerous training to ensure they complete all work to the highest standards.

But just consider the fact that if the contractor’s employees have to go to the hardware store then he’s still got to pay his employee’s $58 an hour to roam the aisles of a big box store.

Buyers typically want at least two full bathrooms in a three-bedroom house, and because a lot of homes feature a mere one-and-a-half bathrooms, sellers are seeing the benefit of making their house that much more appealing to potential buyers while still incorporating elements that they personally like. Don’t settle for cheap plastic units that hang from the showerhead or attach to rods that run from your tub to the ceiling; they look ugly and can ruin your attractive new design. Designed for function, the room gets a lot of use and possible damage of water and mold.

Build a list of your favorite materials for tile or stone flooring, backsplashes or shower surrounds, making sure to note performance and durability.

Out-of-the-box vanities are available online and at many home improvement stores and will be the most affordable option.

However, for a more custom look, you can piece together a vanity with cabinetry topped with a material of your choice and a sink.

They gave me a very reasonable estimate for what I asked for. They also answered my all questions and gave me no hassle at all.

Everything from the fixtures to the floor to the tiles were the originals from 1969. They arrived everyday on time and cleaned up every night before they left.

If there were major changes that I wanted during the job – they would get me a price and ask for my approval before they proceeded. I thought their style suggestions were excellent and felt that they really heard us when we told them what we wanted. We got 2 other bids before choosing them and they were the most reasonable, timely, and personable.

Jason and Team were on budget, on time and CLEAN!!!! I would and have recommended them to many friends and co-workers.
