Are you thinking about a kitchen remodel? You’re not alone. Giving a kitchen a makeover is one of the most popular remodeling projects that homeowners undertake. It’s also a perfect way to increase the value of the home many times over. Thanks to many helpful YouTube videos and stores like Home Depot, a kitchen remodel has also become a very popular DIY type of project. Whether you’ll be hiring a contractor or doing the work for yourself you should consider some important options in your planning stage.
For your countertops you can go for a full slab or tiles of granite. Dark granite tiles with dark grout can give the same kind of look and feel of that full slab for a fraction of the cost. They are also easier to repair. Swapping out a single cracked tile as oppose to an entire cracked slab is a no brainer! For back splashes on your counters, look into vinyl or sheet metal for a sleek and modern look. This might be a better choice especially if you’re going to have stainless steel appliances. Speaking of stainless steel appliances, when you head out to the appliance store consider picking up a floor model or one that is slightly damaged. Suppose you find a beautiful stainless steel fridge with a dent on its left side. Is that the same side that will be forever hidden by your cabinets? If so, then doesn’t making a deal for a price that is several hundred dollars cheaper than the retail price sound good? This approach also holds true for washer and dryers. Will a little scratch or dent matter when it can mean some serious savings?
Another popular kitchen-remodeling tip is to update your light fixtures. Get rid of those glaring fluorescent lights and instead opt for warm track lighting. Most track lighting can be installed with a kit and dimmer that allows you to adjust the light settings depending on your mood. It can make a huge difference in the kitchen.
Then there are your cabinets to contend with. Here again you can find a simple approach to swapping out the doors and using existing hardware. If you take this approach then you’ll definitely want to set up a clean up appointment with Junk King Nashville. With their hard working crew and huge truck, Junk King will be able to remove those cabinet doors in the same day that you plan to take them down. If you’re replacing countertops, then let the JK crew remove that construction debris as well. Junk King works best when removing bulky objects that won’t fit into your trashcan. It might seem like an extra step but it is one well worth taking.
