Unique Things to Consider for Your Denver Home's Kitchen Remodel Project


February 20, 2019

Taking on the task of having your Denver home’s kitchen remodeled can be a tall order, as you will be significantly altering your home’s primary living space in favor of a well-curated and personalized kitchen. This prospect can overwhelm any self-respecting homeowner, as they will have to consider endless amounts of design prospects and choices to create their dream kitchen. If you’re really wanting to make a serious splash with your new kitchen, you may want to consider unique design choices or items to install. Here are a few to get your creative juices flowing:

Lounge it Up!

You may think a kitchen is not the right place for a lounge-type environment, think again! If you’re really trying to make a statement with your Denver home’s new kitchen, think about adding a lounge style seating area to give your home an restaurant vibe. It will also provide you and your guests with a comfortable seating area, creating an atmosphere quite different from the normal setup. The right banquette setup can create a large seating area for family gatherings.

Unique Color Choices

Think your kitchen’s color choices are merely limited to black and white and other standard colors? You’re limiting yourself! Consider other color choices to brighten and liven up your kitchen’s look and feel and to provide a style statement that will be unparalleled in relation to your friend’s kitchen spaces. Consider coordinating the color of an island and your kitchen’s new fridge, perhaps finding a way to work in a turquoise or gold palette to really brighten things up. 

Expose Your Ceiling

If you’re wanting to increase the space and roominess in your Denver home’s kitchen without sacrificing an essential element, such as a table or island, think vertically. If your home has a low-hanging ceiling, you may consider the possibility of having an exposed ceiling in your kitchen. Wood rafters hanging above your kitchen can provide a unique and rustic charm that can’t be matched by other style options.

Two-Tone Your Cabinets

Thinking about what color scheme you’d like to install for your new cabinets but you’re having a hard time deciding between your two favorite options? Choose both! Assuming these colors work well with each other, two cabinet color schemes can provide your kitchen with an unrivaled sense of character and intrigue. Say goodbye to the drab, boring, tired choices and say hell to a kitchen full of color and personality. Have your top cabinets as one color, while opt for a different color for your bottom cabinets.

How to Ensure Success for Your Denver Kitchen Remodeling Project


February 13, 2019

The prospect of remodeling your kitchen can bring with it both excitement and anxiety. The feelings of excitement come because you’re thrilled with the idea of updated an old, uninspired space and to put your personal touch and vision into one of the most important areas of your home. However, this project also comes with a fair amount of anxiety, as you will be taking significant steps to update and remodel your home. A kitchen remodel can quickly go from your dream project to your worst nightmare, especially if you decide to hire a contractor with a limited amount of experience or expertise. If you are thinking about updating your Denver home’s kitchen, here are a few things to ensure this project’s success.

Determine Your Budget

One of the most important and obvious aspects of any home remodeling project is to figure out how much money your family can afford to spend on the project. It’s a good idea to be flexible when it comes to a budget, as many things may arise which may require you to spend more money. If you have a target of $8,000 for a remodel, but have a max limit of $10,000, you will be much better positioned to deal with unforeseen circumstances from arising. 

If you go in with a set budget without any wiggle room for additional expenses, you may be facing financial difficulties in order to complete the project. Talk with your contractor from the start about your concerns and ways you can tackle the project so you can adequately address all possible scenarios, preventing an unexpected financial hardship in the process. 

Research, Research, Research!

Taking on the task of remodeling your kitchen must involve an extensive amount of research and consideration before beginning any project. If you start remodeling your kitchen and eventually realize that you’d prefer to do things differently, you may not be able to change your design. The last thing you want to have after spending money to remodel your kitchen is to have regret over how the project turned out. 

Trusted professional contractors can walk you through the numerous options available to you and your family and should be able to offer helpful suggestions in terms of what may work. Not every design will fit well with every home, as you may have structural and design limitations to work around. Search the internet for examples in order to give you a solid idea of what to look for and thoroughly discuss what you have in mind prior to beginning the project.

Things to Consider When Deciding on Your Next Denver Home Remodeling Project


February 1, 2019

If you own your own home in Denver or elsewhere, it can be tempting to always be pondering the next big project which will turn your home into the dream you have for your house. Indeed, the prospect of providing immediate value to your home, both in terms of its overall functionality as well as the value of your property, can make the idea of making improvements to your home ever-alluring. However, you probably have a certain budget you need to work around, making it difficult to get everything you want done all at once. If you are feeling overwhelmed by what you should do to your home next, here are a few of the things to consider.

What Part of Your Home Needs a Remodel the Most


Does your home deal with consistent moisture issues as a result of a poorly-insulated basement? Perhaps your home has a kitchen that is severely impacting your experience of making food at home and detracting from your family’s ability to host large groups of people? Whatever issue appears to be the most pressing and dire need is the thing that you should consider focusing on first.

In regards to prioritizing needs, it’s always important to think about the things which are needs and important for functionality. A house which has poor insulation should think about dealing with this situation first prior to taking on any additional projects. However, if you don’t have any serious functional/structural issues, consider what part of your home will benefit the most from an overhaul. If your family has regular guests, finishing your basement can provide you with the extra space. Consequently, if your family places a high value on its kitchen, think about upgrading this component first.

What Will Improve the Value of My Home the Most


When it comes to deciding which improvement to make on your home first, it’s important to think about the thing that will add the biggest amount of value to your property. If your kitchen is in dire need of replacement, upgrading this part of your house can provide immense value to your home, both in terms of how your family uses it as well as the overall resale value. Thinking about the projects which will pay off in the long-term whenever you decide to sell can be an important part of the decision-making process. Once you’ve decided what you want to have done to your Denver home, it’s important to seek the services of a trusted contractor.
