Get Rid of Your Outdated Kitchen With New Custom Cabinets

Custom Cabinets
If you have an ugly kitchen, custom cabinets can help to transform it.  Let’s face it, not everyone loves their house or their kitchen.  In fact, after you have put a fresh coat of paint on the walls and laid down new flooring, the main area of the house can usually look much improved.  These simple and affordable solutions work well for giving your home a fresh feel.  It doesn’t do much, however, for the kitchen, and if you don’t like yours – it is time for a makeover.

We can turn the most boring, ugly, and outdated kitchen into a dream space.  Whether you are stuck with old cabinets and appliance from the 70s or medium oak from the early 90s, we can take you into the next century.  While doing so, you can have the opportunity to customize your kitchen to fit your every need.  From how many sinks that you have to where each type of cabinet is placed, you can become as creative and as detailed as you like when planning for how to renovate your space. 

One of the reasons you can be so creative with your kitchen is that with custom cabinets, everything can be made to your exact requests and specifications.  Custom cabinetry goes far beyond selecting the height, width and depth of each cabinet.  You can select the color and the hardware for a customized appearance that matches your personality and that’s just getting started.  We invite you also to consider how you use your space, what your most used pots and pans are, how many spices you need to access, etc. Think about what meals you like to cook, how you like to cook them, and what tools and ingredients you need in order to do so.  Make a list so that we can learn about your style and incorporate features into your remodel that make it faster and easier to cook your favorite meals. 

We understand how critical it is for a kitchen to have optimal functionality and do our best to incorporate that into every design that we do.  For example, we may suggest wider drawers in place of several cupboards so that you can have a clean and organized space for your pots. What we do will be based on our conversations, learning about your concerns, and how you like to use the space.  All of this can then come together without an issue. 
If you love to make choices, you will love your new custom cabinets. Seeing something that you selected come to life is always a ton of fun, and we will work to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the material that you select, even the shade and hardware.  While creating a plan with you, we will also point out some amazing features that you can have incorporated.  Things like hidden compartments and a slide out cutting board can make cooking that much better.

Hire a General Contractor to Create a New Space In Time For Summer

General Contractor
As a general contractor, we are in the business of creating beautiful spaces.  Whether you want a new home built, are looking to build an extension or simply want to remodel – we can help.  It is important that you hire someone with a contractor’s license because, in order to get one, you must be bonded and insured. This means that if you hire a contractor and they don’t finish the job, you can go after their bond or insurance policy.  That’s a good thing because a contractor doesn’t want that ever to happen and, therefore, is motivated to ensure that the job is done right.  However, if you hire someone that doesn’t have these credentials, they won’t have the same motivation, and you will have fewer protections, as a result. 

If you don’t like your home, now is an excellent time to create a new space just in time for summer.  We understand that for many of our clients, the way that their home looks and functions is beyond important.  This is especially true if you have a family and spend a lot of your time at home.  We can be sure that your home reflects the changing needs of your family and that it looks amazing.  

As a general contractor, we have a lot of creative ways to give you more space, including:
  • Building a sunroom.  This is an ideal solution that can be used year-round.  With a wall full of windows, a sunroom gets a lot of natural light and can be an excellent place to read a good book or have lunch with your friends.  We recommend that your sunroom be as comfortable as your family room, only light and airy. 
  • Create a screened porch.  If you want to extend your living space and have an indoor/outdoor feel, create a screened in porch.  We can build one next to the kitchen with cathedral ceilings for aesthetics, a ceiling fan for comfort, a tile floor for practicality, etc.  Your screened porch can be an extension of your living space and a beautiful addition to any home.
  • Create a master retreat.  If you aren’t using all of the bedrooms in your home, consider what you would do with a master retreat.  It is unnecessary to have a bunch of room sitting unused and waiting for a guest.  You use your bedroom every day so you should be comfortable and enjoy it. By combining more than one room, we can expand the footprint of your master before turning it into a little paradise.  Once that is done, we can also expand your master bathroom to create a luxurious space.
  • Finish your basement.  One of the easiest way to transform your home is to hire a general contractor to finish your basement.  We are always looking for creative ways to make your home more functional, and your basement is a prime way for doing so.  The footprint already exists, so it is a simple matter or finishing the interior as you like.
