Kitchen Remodeling

Where hospitality begins.

We believe that every kitchen should be a reflection of its owner’s unique tastes and lifestyles.  It should be a place for gathering and making memories – a place that feels happy and welcoming and functional.  All of the use and caring and creating in that kitchen wears down surfaces. Hinges and drawer glides begin to wear out. Or perhaps your space no longer functions for the way you and your family live. Regardless of the why, eventually the heart of your home will need to be remodeled.

Frequently Asked Questions

Kitchen Remodeling FAQs:

The duration of a kitchen remodeling project depends on its complexity and the scope of work. On average, minor remodeling – like replacing countertops and adding a fresh coat of paint, takes approximately 2-4 weeks. A more comprehensive project, involving structural changes and installing new appliances, may take 6-10 weeks.  Keep in mind that unexpected issues, material availability and weather conditions can affect the timeline. It’s advisable to allow some buffer time in the planning stage.

The specific permits and approvals needed for a kitchen remodeling project depend on local building codes and regulations.  In general, you will likely need permits for structural changes; electrical and plumbing work; and any modifications that impact your home’s integrity or safety. Additionally, if your property is part of a homeowners’ association or falls under historical preservation restrictions, you may need their approval as well.  It is essential to consult with your local building department or professional contractor to determine which permits and approvals are required for your specific project.  Failure to do so can lead to fines, as well as delays in the construction process.

Yes –  a well-executed kitchen remodeling project can indeed increase the value of your home. Kitchens play a pivotal role in a home’s appeal to potential buyers, making them one of the most important areas to invest in. A thoughtfully planned and aesthetically pleasing kitchen can significantly boost your home’s market value. Here’s how:

First Impressions: The kitchen is often the focal point of a home. A modern, updated kitchen can create a positive first impression on potential buyers, setting the tone for their perception of the entire property.

Functionality: A remodeled kitchen can offer improved functionality, storage, and workspace. This can be especially appealing to buyers who value convenience and efficient use of space.

Upgraded Appliances: Incorporating energy-efficient appliances can attract environmentally conscious buyers and those seeking modern conveniences, potentially increasing your home’s value.

Design and Aesthetics: Aesthetic upgrades, such as new countertops, cabinets, flooring, and lighting, can transform the kitchen into a visually appealing and inviting space, leaving a lasting impact on buyers.

However, it’s important to strike a balance. Overinvesting in a kitchen remodel that doesn’t align with the overall value of your home and neighborhood might not yield the desired return. It’s advisable to research local real estate trends and consult with professionals to ensure your remodeling project aligns with market expectations. Contact us today to start the design process.
