Still trying to decide which style of kitchen cabinetry will work best with your needs? European style cabinets - also known as frameless - provide several benefits and advantages. Let's take a look...
Can we all agree that winter is over? I sure hope so, this winter has been beyond overwhleming for most of us. Now it's time to catch up with all of our spring cleaning as well as planning for home design projects. Let's cover three of the most important kitchen remodeling projects you can focus on this spring!
Keeping your kitchen updated and fresh not only makes cooking and chatting with family and friends enjoyable, it also adds return on investment should you ever decide to sell your home.
Replacing your kitchen cabinets can be a fun project, but also costly. If you're thinking about replacing the cabinets on your own, then we invite you to read about some cabinet options, design and how-to install them yourself! Check it out.
Winter is usually a time where we think about improving our living spaces. Whether it's a new bathroom, kitchen or basement, this is the time we start noticing things we want to change. Replacing kitchen countertops is among the most common projects for the spring. If you're thinking about replacing your countertops, here's a few ideas and trends to consider.
Remember that last hotel you were in? Remember how relaxing, clean, elegant and private that bathroom felt? What if you could bring that same bathroom back home?... well the design & feel I mean ;-)
If you're thinking about selling your house, winter may not seem like the "ideal" time to start planning and preparing to sell. Far from the truth. This is the perfect time to start. Here's a few things you should consider right away!...
Kitchen remodels, if done very well, can yield good return on your investment as well as provide you with an effective and useful space. If done very poorly, a kitchen remodel can be quite costly resulting in more time and money being invested to correct problems that could have been avoided in the first place. Fortunately, knowing what mistakes to avoid up front will result in a much smoother and more profitable kitchen remodel in the long run.
When it comes to placing cabinets and countertops, we often focus only on the kitchen and bathroom, but there are other spaces worth considering, too.
So who ELSE needs kitchen remodeling? What things should I be considering prior to even looking for a kitchen design company?
A short, but special message from our team at Counter Intelligence, wishing everyone the best for this holiday season.
As someone once said, “You cannot have too much kitchen storage.” Even the fanciest most up-to-date kitchens with what seems like ample storage may not even meet your needs. There are a wide range of items that are traditionally stored in kitchen cabinets.
Recently, when I was in our showroom, a customer shared with me her favorite countertop sample: a fire engine red Silestone. She admitted, though, that she was not brave enough to use that color for her countertop. Then, reluctantly, she spread before her the samples of neutral colors from which she was going to actually choose.
Has your husband ever offered to carry out a home improvement project with the best intentions in the world?... but somehow he just fails to deliver? Yes, I know. I'm actually one of those "husbands"... not intentionally though! So how can you avoid home projects from dragging on forever?
When we talk about our "dream kitchen", we are certainly not referring to a dream we had during our sleep right? Or at least that's what I think. Besides, I have never met anyone that has experienced such a thing (have you?). Two things; why do we refer to it as a "dream kitchen", and how do you actually build it without falling asleep?
What should you be concerned about when responding to an ad that seems to be the perfect price tag for your budget?
My wife and I had been thinking about remodeling our small kitchen for a while, and we finally came to an agreement on our budget a few months ago. Equipped with an actual number, we were ready to start searching for a kitchen remodeling company that would make our project come true.
We are so proud to share with everyone the wonderful opportunity we experienced of helping The Home Depot's Children's Foundation "Believe In Tomorrow". We had lots of fun working on this project, and already looking forward to volunteering in the future! Check out some of the photos at the bottom...
If you’re like many of our customers at Counter Intelligence you are ready to replace your old laminate or acrylic countertop. Perhaps this is in conjunction with a totally new kitchen or maybe just a countertop upgrade. And like most people, this is probably your first experience with a project of this nature. I hope the following information will assist you with the process and help you make the right decisions for your tastes and application.
If your kitchen needs a facelift, painting your cabinets, installing new countertops and updating your appliances is a great option. If you need a complete remodel there are many other issues to consider.
