New Features to Include in Your Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans

Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans
We can complete a kitchen remodeling in New Orleans to improve the look and functionality of your home.  Your kitchen is one of the most frequently used spaces in your home.  If you have a family and cook a lot, there is a good chance that you are preparing three meals a day plus at least two snacks in this space.  During the summer, when the kids are home from school, the kitchen has to work even harder at keeping up with the demand of meals and the constant clean up.  This time of year, it is easier than ever to see if your kitchen is up for the tasks at hand, or if it severely lacks in functionality.  If you are tired of constantly battling for counter space or dealing with a lack of storage and pile of dishes, give us a call.  We can meet with you and present you with design solutions to improve your space.  In the meantime, here are some of the aspects we incorporate in every remodeling project.

Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans – Storage Solutions

No kitchen remodel would be complete without addressing the need for storage.  When they built older homes, the cabinets tended to be smaller, and there were fewer of them.  This has created an issue for the modern homeowner that tends to have several styles of dishes, pans, and small appliances.  Storage space is absolutely critical and instead of creating one-size-fits-all solutions, we like to learn about the amount of things you have and create a storage plan to fit them.  This way, you will not end your remodel without having a space for everything. Even if we are not expanding the footprint of your kitchen, we can use smart storage ideas like bringing the cabinets all the way to the ceiling, adding shelving, making the island a storage space, etc.  Installing drawer and cabinet organizers will also help to make the space more functional so that you can fit more and so that it is less messy than it is currently.  For example, one silverware drawer can have two levels of storage so that you can keep twice the amount of utensils in one space.

Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans – Design Style

When remodeling your kitchen, it is important to select a design style that fits your personality.  Just because you had a country kitchen when you bought the house, does not mean that you have to keep it that way.  You could switch to a modern kitchen with clean lines, or you could go darker and install cherry cabinets OR if you have always wanted a country kitchen, we can make yours beautiful.  The reality is that there are so many design styles and features that can be included to transform your kitchen into a space that you absolutely love.  All you need to do is let us know what your favorite design style is and what your favorite colors are so that we can incorporate them into the design plan.

Why You Should Add Custom Cabinets to Your Home

If you are starting a remodel, include
Custom Cabinets
custom cabinets in your plans. This is an excellent way to create the storage you need to hide the clutter, create organization, and add beauty to your home. While many people tend to think of cabinets as no more than a functional item, they can also be beautiful and improve the appearance of your home. We can make cabinetry out of all types of wood. They can be painted or stained, and blend in or stand out. The choice is yours, and we can help you select the type of cabinetry perfect for your home and your family.

Custom Cabinets in the Bathroom

The bathroom is an excellent space to have custom cabinets designed and installed because they can maximize your storage. This is especially important if a bathroom is being shared by multiple people. For example, if you have a kids' bathroom being used by a teen, an elementary student, and a toddler, you will need to store three very different types of products. While your teenager may need a blow-dryer and a curling iron, your toddler might still be using bath toys. This means that your storage solutions need to keep up with the demands of your family. We can install various cabinets and drawers for each person to use, so their belongings can be entirely separate. We can also create space for towel storage, toilet paper, etc., so your hallway closet can be freed up. In the master bathroom, we can get more detailed with your storage solutions, providing cubbies for makeup, hair accessories, etc. This can make it easier and faster to get ready in the morning.

Custom Cabinets in the Family Room

Most families have games, toys, CDs, DVDs, blankets, etc. that all end up in the family room. If you have multiple video game consoles or your kids like to read, the amount of items that need to be stored only increases. This can turn any family room into a cluttered space in no time at all. If you are tired of picking up constantly or having the room look messy when it is actually clean, you should have custom cabinets built. With a wall of built-ins, there can be a space for everything that lives in the family room, which will make the room look better and make picking up less of a chore for you and the kids.

Custom Cabinets in the Kitchen

When it comes to your kitchen, cabinets are a must. We can design them to function as both storage and organizational tools. For example, you do not have to use a large cabinet for a tower of pans to go in. We can create cabinets that can actually separate and store pans, dishes, utensils, appliances, and more, so everything has its own organized place. Cooking will be much easier this way, and cleanup will be faster, as well.
