Is it time to remodel your kitchen and bath? Do your cabinets no longer have that beautiful shine? Are your shower and tub outdated? Do you need a total renovation or a budget remodel? Kitchen and bath remodels are a solid investment in the value of your home, and it’s important to invest time and money to maintain that value.
Over the past several years, we have had the opportunity to work with Thompson Price Kitchens/Baths/Home on various kitchen and bath remodeling projects. Their expert advice and extensive knowledge will help you in your remodeling decisions from start-to-finish. As Tom Price says, “We take out the overwhelm and that ‘frazzled feeling’ that can come with big projects.”
So, how do you decide when it’s time to remodel your kitchen and bath?
Deciding to Remodel
How do you know you’re ready to call Thompson Price? The National Kitchen and Bath Association offer a checklist to help you assess your living space for a potential remodel project. Ask yourself the following questions. They’ll help determine whether it’s time to remodel your kitchen and bath.
Do you have adequate space in the room? Take into consideration whether the amount of counter space, cabinet space and floor space available is satisfactory. Consider your present needs and what your anticipated needs might be.
How well does the traffic flow in the space? In the kitchen, this is a consideration for a household with multiple cooks or those who entertain a lot. In the bath, this could be an issue for a family with small children, who will need parental supervision for a while. This is also a consideration for someone who is aging and wants to remain home as long as possible.
How are your children impacted by the present layout of your kitchen or bath? Safety considerations are necessary in both rooms, as well as making things more accessible to them.
How old are your appliances? Outdated technology can cost you more money in the long run than updating those older appliances.
Is your kitchen user-friendly to all who might use it? Is it accessible to people with disabilities? It’s important to consider safety issues and adaptability issues for special needs and aging individuals.
As you go through this assessment, make notes of what you like and dislike about your existing space. Note the changes you are considering. Don’t forget to include any major or minor existing issues in the room to bring to your consultant’s attention.
So you’ve decided it’s time to remodel your kitchen and bath. Maybe even both rooms need a refresh and update. Keep in mind that remodeling projects run the gamut: from a full makeover to a simple refresh of the room. Your design consultant will work closely with you to plan your remodel within your budget.
Are you considering a full kitchen remodel? When choosing new appliances, cabinets, and countertops, be sure to add counter and storage space! This is really where adequate space, smooth traffic flow, and smart technology come into play.
Do you need a refreshed and updated look to your kitchen? We are seeing a resurgence of people choosing to refinish their cabinets rather than replace them. Choosing to refinish your cabinetry means you can do anything from restoring the shine to your cabinet fronts to repainting them to match your new color scheme! Changing your cabinets’ hardware, replacing your sinks, or updating your backsplashes are all significant updates to your spaces that will transform your room.
Are you considering a full-scale bathroom remodel? This is an opportunity to add luxury to your home with a separate walk-in shower and heated floors.
Does your bathroom need just an update? You can refinish your cabinetry at a fraction of the cost of new, as well as freshen your walls with a new coat of paint. Bring that new, updated feeling to your bath with new shower doors, a featured service of Thompson Price.
Taking the next step to start the remodel of your kitchen and bath can be daunting. But at Thompson Price, their unique Design Center offers state-of-the-art technology providing an alternative to on-location showrooms and catalog or online shopping. As Tom Price says, “Our main goal with the Design Center is to make sure our clients enjoy the renovation experience.”
