New Years Resolution: Remodel Our Kitchen [Part III]

Now that you’ve assessed your kitchen space, considered budget and potential resources, it is time to contact a few companies or contractors who might do the work. Remodeling a kitchen is like…

New Years Resolution: Remodel Our Kitchen [Part I]

We all go into the new year with a list of improvements on our mind, whether it be to lose weight, work smarter not harder, or clean up the clutter. One of the most popular times for people to think about home improvements also happens to be in January. You’ve just hosted family and friends in your home over the holidays and you’ve realized the issues with your space. In this three part series about getting started on a kitchen remodel, we’ll take a look at how you might approach your project to make the end result as great as it can be.

Dog-Friendly Dining

Family tends to gather in the kitchen and any dog lover knows that always includes the family pet. This can quickly turn into chaos, especially for owners of multiple dogs. I only have one – a tiny, 10-pound miniature dachshund named Munchie – and I can only imagine what owners of big dogs must go through.

A Kitchen Remodel Increases Home Value

If you are like the rest of us, you have probably spent a lot of time in the kitchen over the past couple of months. From Thanksgiving through the welcoming of the new year, the kitchen seems to be at the heart of every gathering and activity. If you have an old or outdated kitchen, you may have even thought “Hmmm…wouldn’t it be nice to have a pretty new kitchen.” The truth is that in addition to improving your own enjoyment, a well-done kitchen remodel will most definitely increase the value of your home.

Classic Contemporary

We’ve been told not to judge a book by its cover and the same is true with our homes. This project is a contemporary respite wrapped inside a traditional brick home. The use of the different style tile in the same color maintains continuity while adding texture to the space. Adding high end appliances, like the induction cooktop (my favorite), make this kitchen a joy to use!

Sleek Spaces

Sometimes less really is more! The simple beauty of the design and the combination of natural materials in this kitchen create a sophisticated and textured look. Fantastic materials and modern appliances can speak for themselves without much design intervention. In spite of the tall ceilings and abundance of light, the use of dark, rich tones allows this space to feel warm and welcoming.

An Inside Look

For a little over six years, we have worked with a marketing consultant to align our strategies and promote our work. We finally had the pleasure of recently remodeling her family’s kitchen and so I am turning over the next three blogs to her to provide an inside look at what happens with one of our jobs. (Hopefully she’ll have only great things to say, right?)
