An Ever-Changing World of Design and Construction

The design and construction world is forever changing, and our industry saw some of those changes last month. Some of our staff went to KBIS (Kitchen Bath Industry Show) in Las Vegas. While they were there, they had classes to sharpen their skills and stay up to date on licensing and education. They also spent the better part of two days walking a show that was over one million square feet. So much to see and learn. We go to these types of events so that we can share what’s going on in the business and the newest and latest items coming to the marketplace. Something that jumped out at me at KBIS was the Champagne Gold hardware and plumbing fixtures. I can’t help but fall in love with this color. It’s gaining traction, and we’re seeing it used more and more. The color is just stunning while screaming “look at me!”

It looks like as we move further into 2020, we’ll be seeing more contemporary designs with flashes of bright color, and more textured finishes will be used. We continue to get excited by the ideas that our clients bring through the door. Since we’re a design/build firm, we can tackle these ideas head on. By the way, when you begin working with us, we offer and encourage you to use our FREE design services. We have award-winning designers on staff who are ready to help you get through the many questions and selections prior to the remodeling construction process. Just think… you’ll be working with a person who will help you keep track, navigate, and manage the many ideas going through your head. We work to make it less stressful by limiting selections and keeping them pertinent to your budget and wish list.

Remember, this process can be fun. Our staff operates so that you can relax and enjoy the moment and finally, the remodel itself. We’re continuing to grow as a company, and we hope that 2020 brings us great projects that not only keep us busy but will challenge us to think outside the box.

We’re starting to move in a direction that offers more transparency while sharing great information, pictures, and online blogs. We believe social media is the future of client communications and inspiration. So, please visit us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter. We look forward to your comments and likes on these platforms. Thank you for taking the time to read this and catch up on what we’re doing!

Selling or Staying, it's Time for a Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen is one of the first rooms homeowners explore when it comes to renovations. It’s the main gathering place in the home for families and friends after all. It’s the area where socialization happens most of the time, so it makes sense to choose this room to remodel. A kitchen remodel can be extremely fun, and it should be. There are so many small changes that can be made to completely transform a kitchen that it’s mind-boggling. But the big question is, is this remodeling project a sound financial decision? Let’s see…

What you need to do first is look at the long-term picture. Are you remodeling the kitchen for your preferences, or will you be selling your home in the near future? Either way, renovations to the kitchen can help save money down the road. If you’re planning to stay in the home, you can explore some new choices that can help save your monthly utility bills. You can opt for new energy efficient windows that can save you on electricity. You can install low flow faucets to save on water consumption. You can buy appliances that are more energy efficient. You’ll also experience personal satisfaction that your new kitchen is more operational and updated than it was previously.

If you’re planning to sell your home, you can expect a very significant return on your investment with a renovated kitchen. If you ask any realtor, they’ll tell you that one of the first things a potential buyer is interested in is the kitchen. If your kitchen is fresh and updated with contemporary designs, it will make your home stand out against homes that have an older kitchen. You can expect to get a return of at least 40% of your remodeling investment when you list your home.

A home kitchen makeover is a very sensible choice, especially if you have the budget to remodel only one room. The kitchen is central to the home, and you can spend a lot of time cooking, eating, and socializing in it. The benefits of new and updated appliances and other elements far outweigh the costs you’ll incur. You’ll be surprised at how far you can get with virtually any proposed budget. When your project is finished, you’ll realize it was money well spent.
