1. Start with the Cabinets
Reface or Replace?
Reface or Replace?
Cabinet refacing can save you up to 50%. If you're pretty satisfied with your kitchen layout, and your cabinet frames are in good shape, then refacing may be a better option for you.
If you'd like to change the current layout of your kitchen or your cabinet frames are not structurally sound, then new cabinets may be a better option.
Reface your base cabinets, and replace or add new cabinetry or island in a contrasting color.
Cabinet refacing has many upsides. It can save you money, and it is a fast and efficient way to update your kitchen quickly.
Because you can reface your cabinets without changing your countertops, sinks and faucets, you can update your kitchen over time. This can allow you to spread your remodeling dollars over a period of several years, refacing now, then replacing countertops at a later date - or replace countertops now and reface cabinets at a later date.
New Kitchen Cabinets
New cabinets also have many positives. Selecting new kitchen cabinets gives you free reign to get the exact layout and cabinet options that work perfectly for you and your lifestyle.
Our talented designers will work closely with you to provide you with ideas and options that will give you the most function and beauty for your remodeling dollar.

4. Plan Your Remodeling Budget
Plan Your Budget
Plan Your Budget
The first step in any remodeling project should be to plan your budget. Decide how much you have to spend and how you're going to pay for it. If you are planning to move in the next few years, you should include only those items that will allow you to recoup your investment and that will help you to sell the house. Figure out what you can fit into your budget and whether you can afford to do it all at once or if it would work better to spread it out over a few years.
Study the Averages
Study the Averages
To help you set your budget, these averages might help.
In a full remodeling project, you can expect to spend approximately 30% on cabinets, 15% on appliances and ventilation, 10% on countertops, 10% on flooring, 5% on lighting, 5% on plumbing and faucets, and 20% on installation.
Create a list of priorities. Decide what is most important to you and create a list. Make notes outlining which brands or items are must-haves and which ones are more generic for you. If budget becomes an issue, remove things from the bottom of the list first or look for alternative products for the items and brands that were least important to you.
With the wide variety of products available, there is literally a kitchen for every budget. Often times, there are opportunities to keep the items on your priority list by being open to different materials or manufacturers - with very little give-up in style or aesthetic. Let your designer know what your budget is and what your priorities are. Rely on them to provide you with options to achieve your goals. Good design can stretch any budget!
Track Your Progress
Finally, keep track of your spending. Sometimes the little things can start adding up. Keep a spreadsheet with all of your expenditures. If you find you are approaching your limit, it might be time for some design alternatives.
5. Call the Pros
Our Remodeling Process
We know how stressful remodeling can be - from selecting the right product, to getting the best price, to signing up the right contractor. Our process is both effective and efficient, saving our customers time and money.
We do hundreds of projects every year. With over 25 years of experience, our methods are well proven and set us apart from our competitors. We're confident that you won't find a better price for the same workmanship and materials.
Step 1: In-Home Consultation
The process begins by meeting with you in your home to understand your needs and provide you with ideas and advice about your project.
Our talented designers will make suggestions for changes that you might not otherwise think of that could enhance your project and give you more satisfactory results. We bring samples to your home so you can see the colors and styles in your home before making your decision.
Step 2: Design
Once you've met with our designers, we will take your ideas back to our office and create a design that fits your lifestyle and needs, staying within your specified budget.
We provide you with a CAD design of your floorplan that will give you a good idea of how your new kitchen could look. If you're doing a full remodeling project, your design could include ideas for cabinetry, flooring, tiling, lighting, countertops, sinks and fixtures.
Step 3: Review and Approve
When the design is complete, we'll meet with you to answer any questions you might have and make modifications where necessary. We will assist you in making all of your selections from cabinetry to countertops, flooring and lighting, and everything in-between.
It's your choice to purchase any of the materials independently, or to have us order them for you. We install everything you will need to complete your job. While this may seem a daunting task with so many different options from which to choose, you'll be surprised at how easy the selection process can be with the help of our talented design staff.
Step 4: Order Materials
After you make your final selections, a contract is signed and we order the materials. Our 2000 square foot showroom adjoins our manufacturing facilities, allowing us to complete your project more efficiently.
By shipping materials to our warehouse, we're ready when we begin your job, equipped with everything we need to complete your project as efficiently and with as little disruption to you as possible.
Step 5: Schedule and Install
When all materials are assembled, we schedule your installation at a time that's most convenient for you. We handle and coordinate all aspects of the installation, including the cabinetry, countertop, flooring, plumbing and electrical.
We are experts at installation and are fully licensed, bonded and insured. Our project management skills are among the best in the industry and we complete our projects with as minimal disruption to our clients as possible.
