Kitchen Remodeling Tips

When you sit down to design a kitchen with our professional kitchen designers, we recommend that you consider the following kitchen remodeling tips:

Design Wide Walkways

Paths throughout a kitchen should be at least 36 inches wide. Paths within the cooking zone should be 42 inches wide for a one-cook kitchen and 48 inches wide for a two-cook configuration. When planning, adjust kitchen islands and peninsulas accordingly.

Find the Right Height for the Microwave

The best height and location for a microwave oven depends on the chef and the degree of kid-friendliness desired in the kitchen. For adults, 15 inches above countertop level is a good microwave height. For kids, a below-countertop setup might be safer and more suitable.

Consider the Countertops

Those who cook frequently require more counter space — ideally between the oven range and sink — than those who cook infrequently or who prepare simple meals. Incorporating two countertop heights makes baking easy and helps kids who are involved in meal preparation.

Plan For Plenty of Plug Outlets

Install multiple outlets along the backsplash and on the island so that you’ll have electricity wherever you need it without having to unplug other items.

Break Up Cabinetry Blocks

Avoid using heavy blocks of doors and drawers by adding small yet impactful details such as glass doors and display shelving. You can also try wine storage or windows.

Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Remodeling a bathroom is one of the best ways to increase the resale value of your home and at the same time make it more practical and accessible for you and your family.  Here are some bathroom remodeling tips to help you save money, time, and stress:

See the Unseen

If possible, get a blueprint of your home to determine the current plumbing and electrical layouts. Rerouting plumbing and electrical lines is expensive, so you’ll save time and money if you can work with the existing line locations.

Choose the Right Products

Bathroom products are susceptible to many challenges, most of them related to moisture. Carpet, for example, is a bad idea in bathrooms,so go with tile or stone, something that will stand up to water and moist air.

Size Things Up

Make sure your new tub fits your needs and the new fixtures are user-friendly. Don’t be shy! Climb into the showroom tub or shower to try them out for size. Fiddle with knobs, levers, and switches before you take the time to purchase them and mount them in place.

Pick the Right Partner

When using a contractor, choose one who specializes in bathroom remodels. Make sure the remodeler has a current license and insurance, including workers’ compensation, and ask for references. Also, carefully study any proposed contracts. Look for clauses that address unforeseen conditions, debris removal, and delivery charges.
