Kitchen Installations and Remodels that work for you.
Kitchen areas can be designed for movement and breathing. Sometimes a wall needs to be removed and sometimes a wall needs to be added to create the perfect area for cooking. Cabinets that outline an open area give the home’s residents maximum flexibility and meets their storage needs without effort. Inset, stainless stoves and refrigerators should capture the cabinet layout with blending lines only offset by color differences.
More often than not, home owners have done their fair share of research and know exactly what they want for their kitchens. The cabinets and appliances have been designed and chosen and a shipment date has been scheduled. The only thing missing is a qualified installer. Installation of cabinetry is a careful practice. An installer has to be careful not to scratch or mar the wood or composite with their tools. Also, installers need to know how to follow design layouts or recreate pictures. The most thorough and best practice in the industry is to take the time to do it right the very first time.
When considering a kitchen remodel, home owners usually decide to upgrade their countertops. Countertops can be marble, stone, formica, wood or a wood composite. The removal of existing countertops should be accomplished carefully so as to not damage areas that are not under-going changes. When installing a new counter, it is in best practice to take the necessary time and not rush the procedure. Marble or granite countertops are delicate and can easily crack and break. After the installation, it is recommended to protect the surface by not placing hot cookware or leaving water sit on it.
When deciding on what features to upgrade during your kitchen remodel, you may choose to do something different with your floors. Along with new cabinetry, choosing to enhance the look of your kitchen flooring is a great way to shake up the entire look of your kitchen. Tile or Marble are incredible assets to install on your kitchen floor. If there are currently wooden floors, consider changing the color of the stain to offset the new cabinetry. The current color trend for wooden floors is deep silvers and grey with hints of pink. Some home owners may decide to keep their flooring exactly the same. If this is the case, proper floor protection should be used at all times.
Tracing back to 1700 BC on the Isle of Crete, faucets and sink basins are extremely important assets to your kitchen. Thanks to great inventors such as Albert Brown and Al Moen, we now have faucets and sink basins that feature all kinds of colors, shapes and materials. However, choosing a faucet or sink basin for your kitchen should not be based on look and color alone. Faucets and Sinks see a great amount of use. Albeit simple, turning on and off faucets and water beating the sink basin is arduous on the material they are made out of. The secret to choosing the perfect faucet or sink basins is to choose them for their durability.
Since the dawn of recorded time, we have been using stone in the preparation of our food. Imagining an open flame, a recent hunt and a surface to prepare is a far cry from our luxurious marble and stone counter tops we have today. Granite and Marble counter tops have what seems to be limitless options and styles. The simplicity of solid color stone or the intricate ways that granite and marble can have color run throughout them is at our fingertips and can make a kitchen incredible. In the counter top arena, the vast array of options rival our imagination and your kitchen is the winner.
The installation of a kitchen backsplash is a feature of a remodel that has a variety of options to choose from. Tile and metal are commonly used when deciding to install a backsplash. As the name implies, a backsplash helps to protect the wall behind it from grease stains, food stains and fire from cooking. When choosing which type of material to use for the backsplash in your kitchen, choose a material that is easy to clean such as ceramic tile or glass. Home owners have infinite choices when deciding which materials to use as a backsplash. This area of the kitchen is growing very popular and becoming the focal point of kitchens. A popular choice in Bucks County is to order tiles from the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works located in Doylestown, Pa
Popular ideas to remember in kitchen remodeling and renovations is to add multiple work stations that function together. This helps when making gastronomic magic by adding precious space in an area that can other-wise be clustered. Cabinet islands also allow space for storage, preparation, and clean up. Blend this with appliances that are within reach and you have the ultimate utility area for food preparation.
What To Expect During a Remodel
Cabinet installations will render your kitchen unusable for the duration of the install. You will most likely find your kitchen table and grocery items stacked on top of it in the living room. If your design requires a wall removal, for safety, a homeowner or loved ones should stay clear of the area until the wall has been removed and a cleaning of the area has been performed. The same goes if you are installing a wall to add cabinets to your kitchen. It is in everyone’s best interest to keep a safe distance from all phases of the remodeling process. The kitchen area should be blocked off with plastic if any type of demolition is involved. This contains any debris from infiltrating other areas of the house. This is especially important for your loved one’s air quality. The cabinet hanging process is part of the final phase of the project. Again, as in a previous paragraph, this is a careful practice. The cabinets that a home owner chooses are not just objects to us here at Andrew Beury Contracting. Rather, kitchen cabinets reflect a home owner’s desire to surround themselves with a gorgeous kitchen and we have the ability to create that environment.
