A common home upgrade is the kitchen remodel or renovation depending on the functionality of the existing layout. Whether you are in our hometown of New Hampton or one of our neighbors in Orange County this project adds value. It makes the house nicer for your daily needs and for entertaining guests. Done right your kitchen will invite you in, putting a smile on your face every morning and serve as the backdrop to many wonderful memories.
The first aspect to consider when buying new cabinets or having them custom built is the style that suits your family and the home. Clean cut lines that reminds you of a hospital is too much for most homes, but the style can be emulated to give the feel of a modern efficient kitchen. On the other hand, grandiose layers of moulding can build intricate cabinetry which is a focal point and conversation piece in the room. The kitchen is the heart of the home and should reflect both your style and the character of the home.
Custom Cabinetry Options
Regardless of the style you choose, your kitchen has to work towards your needs on a daily basis. A family who has four children in school and a stay at home parent who spends hours cooking every day is going to have different needs than someone who reheats takeout leftovers and cooks microwave dinners. Now just because you may not spend a lot of time in the kitchen yourself dose not mean you should use bottom end, disposable grade cabinetry. Think long term value and think about the next owner.
Determining Usable Function
When remodeling / renovating your kitchen, it’s important to understand what you really need so your kitchen can function as you intend to use it. Whether you need storage for dozens of kitchen gadgets you use to prepare 5-star chef quality meals or whether you want room for friends and family to gather around catered meals determines your new kitchen’s design. Be sure to discuss realistically with your contractor what you hope to accomplish and you’ll end up with a kitchen you love because it suits your needs well.
