Remodeling your kitchen is a big decision, and one that requires careful planning. If you decide to go with custom cabinetry, you should consult wth an expert firm of installers, who will be able to give you the best advice on the most functional and stylish kitchens available. You should pick an installer based on their commitment to quality and reliability. The best firms will combine exceptional craftsmanship and the latest technologies, with a choice of materials, such as maple, pine, birch, oak, hickory, beech, cherry or walnut, silver maple, alder and bamboo. And best of all, you can now go green with eco-friendly cabinetry with formaldehyde-free wood, glue and finishes.
You may have been dreaming of a new kitchen with shiny appliances, custom wine racks, custom built cabinets and shelves, or even a new fireplace or wine bar. The majority of respondents in a 2013 survey, or 79% of them, said that they were remodeling their kitchens to “improve their look and feel.” But there are more practical reasons for a kitchen makeover.
Remodeling your kitchen adds value to your home, and even a minor remodel, if it includes a complete remodel of the cabinets, provides an average return of investment of 72.8%. So remodeling your kitchen offers double value: not only do you get the kitchen of your dreams, you actually increase the value of your home.
How much will it cost?
A minor kitchen remodel which includes new cabinet doors and drawer fronts, new countertops, new flooring, and appliances, costs on average $19,226, according to the 2015 ?Cost vs. Value Report?. This includes the cost of labor.
This means that remodeling your kitchen is a major decision, and that you should choose the style, appliances, custom cabinetry and layout carefully. One of the best things about a kitchen remodel is that you can go green and get rid of all the old materials that were used in your kitchen. With formaldehyde free countertops, paint and glues, your kitchen can become a healthy and safe place for your family.
Now, eco-friendly cabinetry is better for you and the environment
At least one person out of four keeps the environment in mind when picking home decor and furnishings. A study found that 28% of men and 25% of women choose sustainable products for their homes. Which is why you’ll be delighted to hear that now you can get “green” eco-friendly cabinets with great quality and looks but with safe, formaldehyde-free wood, glue and finishes.
You can even choose to use materials from a certified sustainable forest, and certified environmentally friendly particle board. Not only are ecofriendly materials better and safer for you and your family, they’re produced using sustainable practices, so they’re better for the environment.
Once you’ve decided to go with a kitchen remodel, custom cabinetry will give it the unique look that will make your kitchen the envy of your family and friends. It’s a big decision, and involves some hard work on your part, but it will be worth it.
