A comprehensive kitchen renovation doesn’t need to cost a fortune.  We handle all of the details of the project, therefore; nothing is overlooked and we stay close to budget. As a veteran owned and operated Design-Build Company, we provide piece of mind during your remodeling experience.

The layout of your kitchen—where you place your appliances, your countertops, and your storage—will determine how cook-friendly your kitchen is.

Ask yourself:

  • Will I have to walk far to get water to top off a pot on the stove?
  • Will I have enough space to slice, dice, chop, and otherwise prepare meals?
  • Will I have room to store the olive oil near the stove or will I have to go across the room to get it?
  • Will two or more cooks be able to work comfortably in the space without constantly bumping into each other?
  • Will I be able to easily rinse dishes and load them into the dishwasher?
  • Do I prefer a range or a separate cooktop and oven?
  • Do I need a prep sink and a cleanup sink?
  • Do I need an eating area in the kitchen?

Of course, if you’re remodeling, the structure of your existing home will limit your layout options. You’ll have considerably more flexibility the larger your space and if you’re building a new home or building an addition.

Common kitchen plans include the one-wall kitchen, the corridor or galley kitchen, the L or double L kitchen, the U-shaped kitchen and the G-shaped kitchen. These shapes could determine if you will be able to utilize counter height stools against an island or bar, or if a bar stool height is the way you'll have to design and build.

One factor to consider when planning your budget for a kitchen-remodeling project is to consider the layout and cabinet configuration.  It will affect the price greatly, for example, a stack of drawers will be higher-priced than a one-drawer/two-door base cabinet.  A U-shaped kitchen will typically cost more than one that's L-shaped with an island.  A wall oven/cooktop combination range will generally cost more than a freestanding range.

When choosing cabinets consider the wood species that will cover the cabinets, door style, the type of finish, and the cabinet construction. Choosing the right wood will help to figure a budget on cabinets, as well as your entire kitchen. Melamine surfaces will be the least costly; cherry is usually the most expensive vs. oak, hickory and pine. Specialty woods like alder, mahogany, fir, rift-cut woods, redwood, and teak will cost more than common woods like oak or pine. Maple is the most common wood, usually priced somewhere between oak and cherry.

The style of door you decide upon will also have an effect on the price of a kitchen remodel.  A door with more details like arches, grooves and molding and the amount of each will have an effect on the cost.  Different finishes are also a factor to consider because the types of finishes will vary in price. Painted cabinets will run about 10 to 15 percent more than standard stains. Glazes or layered finishes will run about 7 to 15 percent more than a standard stain due to extra labor.

Kitchen Countertops

When you choose your countertop, select a color and texture that compliments your cabinetry, floor or paint selection. Don't be afraid to combine two or more countertop materials in one kitchen. Complimentary colors or textures on adjacent surfaces can create visual interest. Remember, it pays to select a material that will withstand years of use without extraordinary maintenance requirements, and is easily repairable should an accident occur.

Two of the best options that we offer are:

Granite Countertops

Granite is hard as a rock. When buffed to a shine it creates a smashing look for kitchen counters. It is also riding a crest of popular style that began over 10 years ago. With granite tops, the experience and expertise of the fabricator is vitally important.

Marble Countertops

Granite, marble, and quartz, all popular for countertops, and are beautiful natural materials. In most areas, you'll find a great selection of colors and figures.

Kitchen Tiles

Tiles form a very important part of the kitchen décor, making or marring it completely. One of their best aspects is that they are available in small sizes, enabling you to create wonderful patterns. At the same time, the variety in colors, sizes and materials of kitchen tiles is almost endless. Apart from being used on the floors, tiles also form a part of the walls, backsplash and even countertops. Not only do kitchen tiles look extremely attractive, but are also stain as well as water-resistant. The only flaw with them is that the grout needs to be cleaned regularly. At the same time, you (should) need to replace them when they get chipped or cracked. Still, using tiles in kitchen is a good option.

Kitchen Sinks

Our sinks give your kitchen the kind of performance, efficiency and handsome good looks that cooking pros depend on and enjoy. These task centers are stylish and centralized, using custom accessories to organize your space and reduce steps across the kitchen floor.

Kitchen Faucets

Kitchen faucets come in a vast range of styles, colors and materials. They're designed to be both functional and beautiful. No one wants a brand-new kitchen with appliance doors that bump into cabinet doors, or an island so close to the wall that it can't be used for dining. Good space planning will help you develop the best layout for your kitchen, so take the time to read this condensed version of the NKBA guidelines. (The full guidelines are available on the NKBA website). Designed to maximize safety and functionality in home kitchens, the guidelines represent ideal layout solutions to kitchen concerns from storage space to door clearance. Don't fret if budget limitations and the constraints of an existing kitchen require some compromises and tradeoffs: The only rules you must follow are building codes.

Our kitchen remodeling projects are priced desirably, and include labor, materials and permits. We can supply several written estimates based on different plans, designs and options.

We will work closely with you to provide renovations that will work within your budget and please you.

Some of these kitchens have very traditional wood cabinetry and stone and/or wood counters. This is often the first thing people think of when they think "kitchen." It is a classic way to redesign a kitchen and it has a long lifespan. Often if you go with a more traditional look it will stay stylish longer, and does not need quite as much done to freshen its look later.
