Is remodeling a kitchen a good investment?
A kitchen remodel is one of the best returns on investment for a homeowner, not just in terms of resale value, but also in use value. The kitchen is the place in which a significant portion of entertainment and socialization occurs. With the right elements and the right process, a kitchen remodel is always money well-spent.
How long should it take to remodel a kitchen?
A typical kitchen remodel takes approximately 60 days, or about 8 working weeks. We are sensitive to the needs of our client’s and recognize that life must go on, meals must be prepared, etc., during the construction process. We make every attempt to phase our work to accommodate this and provide clients with the most ongoing functionality possible.
What is the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel?
Costs associated with various categories can vary or fluctuate greatly; generally speaking, the largest portions of clients’ budgets are allocated to cabinets, countertops, and appliances. We work with our clients early in the process to identify what elements are most important and which are more flexible, and use this information to appropriately assign budget percentages.
Which kitchen layout is the most functional?
The simple answer is—the one that works. Adequate time spent designing a new kitchen is critical, and careful consideration should be given to flow, spacing, distance, storage access and proximity of components that rely upon one another, e.g. the sink and dishwasher, or waste bins and prep spaces.
How can I redo my kitchen countertops?
The first step is to give us a call and we will come out and assess your current countertops. We will take a look at what appliances are involved, the configuration of the countertops, and what we need to do to protect the cabinets and cabinet structure. We ensure that the cabinets will be able to support the new counter. For example, if you are replacing laminate counters (weighing a half pound per square foot) with soapstone (weighing 25 pounds per square foot), the structure of your cabinets and floor system must be evaluated (and potentially modified) to ensure that they can support the new load stresses.
After the initial assessment and any necessary structural upgrades, we will put you in contact with our preferred countertop vendor to set up a consultation. They will discuss all of the options and installation process; we’re happy to join in that meeting and provide assistance. Once selections are made, we will work with the countertop vendor to schedule installation. On installation day, an Aaron & Co. supervisor will be on-site to monitor the work and provide assistance, if required.
