Remodeling the kitchen is generally a great investment in the value of your Tolland home. But it’s not a small investment in terms of your family’s money or time. Dave Davidson Remodeling embraces the challenge of helping your family get the kitchen you want at a cost that makes sense to you.
Plan and Design Your Kitchen
Picture your perfect kitchen. What do you see? When we look at your kitchen and consider the job you need to weigh in many factors, including:
- The vision of the space.
- Your overall lifestyle and what demands your kitchen needs to meet.
- How your kitchen connects to the rooms around it.
- The amount of space available and the possibilities for expansion.
- The location of windows and how to get the best natural light in the space.
- Your budget.
Choosing Materials and Products for Your Tolland Kitchen
Everything from your cabinets to your flooring needs to be selected. Depending on your budget, you need to list what you can live with and what absolutely needs to go. If it is a full kitchen remodel, then you need to plan for how each element will work together. Will the flooring go with the cabinets, what hardware works best for my style. Planning ahead helps cut back on frustration and design errors.
Kitchen flooring needs to withstand foot traffic and potential spills, drops, and cooking accidents. You want durability and low maintenance as well as aesthetics when choosing a kitchen floor. Floors also play an integral part in tying the room together visually, so it is important to choose something aesthetically pleasing.
Options available in the Tolland area are:
- Porcelain tile – most durable.
- Hardwood (or synthetic wood) -beautiful and soft but scratches easily.
- Travertine, Limestone, Slate tile – provides great character but are significantly less durable.
Cabinets establish a visual theme and help define the style for your entire kitchen. The design, construction, and installation of cabinetry can also be some of the most time-consuming aspects of a kitchen remodeling project. It’s not always necessary to invest in luxury cabinets to get high-quality features and quality craftsmanship. Some moderately priced cabinets offer organizational solutions like drawers instead of doors and built-in features such as spice racks and organizers. Cabinet design also helps make use of the dead space that can occur in the way back of cabinets. Great design can help you put it to use when you are in the process of creating custom cabinetry.
Along with the cabinets, countertops set a visual tone and help define the kitchen’s style. You want your countertop to work in harmony with your cabinets, appliances, and flooring. Granite is often on the wish-list for homebuyers and remodelers alike. But, newly engineered stone products are replacing granite in high-end design. They not only offer a luxurious-looking, granite-like surface but can be stain-resistant and very durable. Other countertop materials include:
- Ceramic tile
- Stainless steel
