How To Make Your Kitchen Fabulous

Stainless steal appliances. Cherry-finish hardwood floors. Fresh paint that is sure to add summer time cheer all year long. We all want to have the best looking and most updated kitchen in our homes, but this can be difficult on a budget. However, renovations on a dime not only make us feel proud, but can also create a kitchen that you will love to spend time in.    

So grab your tool set and take our advice to recreate your kitchen within your budget.  

Tips For Remodeling Your Kitchen

1.       Chairs – Some people neglect the importance of their kitchen chairs, but choosing appropriate chairs can be a huge difference when decorating your kitchen.   Modern and light chairs are your best choice to a new updated look.

2.       Kitchen Island – If you want to make your kitchen look modern, yet traditional, a kitchen island- stainless steel or aluminum, is the perfect choice. This will not only add the “water cooler” effect as your guest gather around eating chips from a bowl placed in the middle but it will also make your kitchen look larger! And no one has to know about the cluttered pans hidden underneath.

3.       Cabinet Doors – Nothing gives a kitchen quite the face-lift like adding new cabinet doors. Show off your stellar beer mug collection from every state with glass cabinet doors or hid your six years supply of Kraft Mac and Cheese with freshly painted yellow cabinets with stainless steel handles in the shape of a skeleton key.

4.       Ceiling Wallpaper – Take the focus to the ceiling by adding Ceiling Wallpaper and we guarantee your mother-in-law will never notice another clump of dirt on your kitchen floor again. There are many wallpaper options for you to choose from and each will make your kitchen look amazing.

5.       Open spaces – If possible, make your kitchen an open space.  This means to not add walls, which block the kitchen’s view, isolating the chef as they cook. This will make your kitchen look larger and more inviting.

Don’t forget to take a look at some of our previous posts to learn more about remodeling your home and improving it as well.

Profitable Renovations For Your Home

clock June 9, 2014 06:21 by author Chris Vigna

Remodeling Your Home Can Be Profitable

If you have not remodeled your home in a few years, you are probably spending more money every month than you actually need to. Below are four tips you could change, which will save you money on your monthly bills.

1. Add a steel door to your entry.  Many homes are still using wooden doors and these may not be as energy efficient as high quality steel doors.  Steel doors are more secure than most of the wooden doors out there; plus, they also look better and tend to increase the selling price of any home.

2. A new garage door is also a great way for increasing your home’s value and security. Not only will this make your home look more complete, but it will also protect your cars and your entire family. 

3. Remodeling your kitchen is a popular way to increase your home’s value, but you need to be very careful, because it is easy to make mistakes and ruin your kitchen.  It is always a good idea to contact experts and ask for advice from professional kitchen remodelers before beginning any kitchen updates.

4. Try going energy efficient with your home appliances. There are many new home electronics and remodeling accessories, which are energy efficient and can reduce the amount of energy that other appliances use. 

 So if you are thinking about remodeling your home, remember these tips and start saving money every single month. At All About the Pipes, our staff of professional plumbers or other experienced remodeling staff will recommend the best practices for renovating your home that will save you from a lot of stress.

Increasing Home Prices, Encourage People To Do Some Remodeling

clock May 8, 2014 04:32 by author Chris Vigna

Home Remodeling Increase This Year

Recent nation and worldwide economic crisis have caused many homeowners to stop their remodeling and to stop thinking about any other changes to their homes.  Renovation is not a cheap task to get involved in most of the time and this is the main reason most homeowners have stopped doing any remodeling in their homes for the past few months. 

According to some recent surveys, homeowners have also stopped remodeling their homes, because the price of their properties have dropped and they do not see the benefit of investing in remodeling, if their home is still not going to be valued at a very fair price.  The same surveys have also found that homeowners are more willing to invest in some remodeling for their homes, if the value of their houses would increase again, which is what is happening this year. 

At least 53% of the people who answered the survey stated that they are more likely to renovate their homes if the value of their property increases over the next 12 months or so.  Of that 53%, at least 48% said that they would be more comfortable getting involved in a home remodeling project that costs more than $500, if their property’s value increases over the next year. 

Experts from stores like The Home Depot have stated that they have a very positive feeling about these next 12 months, as they think that people are going to feel more confident about investing in their home remodeling and thus have more sales.

Other housing experts, have stated that there could be a 5% annual grow rate for the next four years or so in house prices and this means that we could reach peek prices in that period of time.  This would certainly return confidence in most homeowners and would allow many to get involved in more home remodeling projects over the next few years. 

So, if you have been thinking about remodeling your home, but have not done so because of the house prices that the market has right now, you can start thinking about this again, as property values might start going up during the next 12 months. 

The economy, has certainly shown signs of getting back to normal and hopefully, home pricing and values, will continue to increase, so that more of us can gain enough confidence to get involved in a new home remodeling project. 

If you really want to start remodeling your home, but are still a little scared about the economy out there, you can always start with some of your remodeling plans and just take it a step at a time.  This will prevent you from overspending and will also help you achieve your dreams.

What To Do With Your Pets While You Renovate Your Home

clock May 4, 2014 01:26 by author Chris Vigna

Pets & Home Renovation

Renovating your home is no simple task and while some jobs may take longer than others, planning what to do with your pets is a very smart thing to do.  If you are a pet owner and are going to be renovating your home, you must think ahead and find a place for your pets to stay while the job gets done.

So whether you own a dog, a cat, a fish, a hamster or an iguana, renovating your home will surely make them uncomfortable and if you do not plan ahead your Charlotte plumbers could have problems with your little friends too.  It is well known that some dogs and cats can bite or scratch strangers and this could become a problem when your professional plumber is working in your home.

If you cannot afford to send your pets to a specialized hotel for a few days, there are always other options to consider and some of these may work for you:

·         Ask a family member or friend for help.  If you know someone close to you who loves animals and can take care of your pets for a few days, this will solve your problem right away.  Not only will you have more space and tranquility in your home, so the plumbers can work, but your pets will also be at a safe and comfy place. 

·         Use a medium to large closet, small patio or other extra space. If your home renovation is only going to take place inside your home, then find a small yard, patio or place for your pet to be outside.  If you don’t have a yard or your home renovation is going to take place outdoors, find a large enough closet or room for your pet to stay indoors and just bare with them during the renovation process.

·         If you happen to have a dog house or a crate, try using it to contain your pets for a few days.  Remember to visit it often and to take your pet out when the plumbers have gone home for the day.  This will prevent your pets from going into the work area and it will also prevent them from grabbing some of the tools or parts that will be used throughout your home’s renovation.     

Always remember to put some clean water and fresh food for your pets, as this will help to calm them down, while they wait for the plumbers to finish their job.   It is really not that hard to find a safe and comfy place for your pets while your home is being renovated, but you do have to plan ahead.
