Things To Consider
When Planning a New Kitchen or Bath.
How much money do you want to spend?
An average bath is between $8-10,000. An average kitchen is between $15-25,000.
What is your primary reason for remodeling?
Is it more storage, counter-top space etc., or is it that you simply want to update the look?
How do you want to spend your budgeted dollars?
Is granite on your must have list? If so, then you may need to spend less on cabinets just to keep in budget. Is there a gourmet cook in the house making state of the art appliances a necessity, and the cabinets secondary? Do you need one dishwasher or two? Possibly an additional refrigerator in your beverage center? All of these are important questions when considering your project.
What Look Do You Like?
You could show us the styles that interest you by bring pictures along.
A few things that would ease the process are to provide us with room dimensions that also show window and door opening size and placement. Pictures of your current kitchen could be very helpful. For bathroom projects, consider who may be using the bathroom. Taller height cabinets are great for adults but if children will also be in the home then you may want shorter cabinets for their ease of use. Will it be necessary to move any of the plumbing, because this will eat up your budget in a hurry. What about the age of people using the bath? If there will be older users, you might want products, such as grab bars, a higher toilet or a seat in the shower.
The expectations of our customers is extremely important to us. What do they want for their money verses what can they truly afford or what can actually be done with their space.
