The kitchen is the centerpiece of your Long Island home
No other room in the home needs to perform as many different functions as your kitchen will. The kitchen is an entertainment center, friends and family always seem to gravitate to your kitchen. Your kitchen is also a work area. Meals are prepared here, cakes and cookies will be baked here and a midnight snack can be sneaked in here. A great kitchen balances all of these varied roles so well that you take for granted all that the kitchen is required to do. Everyone’s idea of the perfect kitchen is slightly different. We encourage you to make a list of the requirements that are most important to you in your kitchen remodeling project. As your kitchen contractor, we know that understanding your needs is crucial to meeting and exceeding your expectations.
It may seem obvious, but the very first step in a kitchen remodel is deciding on the style. Traditional, Modern, Contemporary, Transitional, Farmhouse and Craftsman are all popular design styles. Our Houzz ideabooks are great tools to help you select a style and begin the process of designing your kitchen. Take note when visiting friends and family what you like about other peoples kitchens. Design centers, magazines and other websites are also good sources of kitchen inspiration. Printing out pictures of kitchens you like and even taking notes are key to communicating your inspiration ideas to our kitchen design team.
So, you have decided on a design, assembled pictures of what you like and even made a list of what requirements you have in mind for your dream kitchen. Does your designer and kitchen contractor seem interested and attentive to your concerns? Do they provide good feedback and ask questions? If not, you really need to look for a kitchen remodeling contractor more in tune with your vision.
Once the kitchen style and basic look are chosen and the requirements have been decided upon, a functional kitchen design can be worked on. Unfortunately, many homeowners and kitchen contractors work on the kitchen design before the style and functional requirements are in place. This is often the difference between a kitchen that you are completely thrilled with and a kitchen that looks good but is described by the homeowner with phrases such as “I should have” or “I am happy with my kitchen but…”
Style, functionality, layout, design and finish product choices all come together to make a kitchen uniquely yours. Chosen wisely and with the proper planning, all of these factors can come together to give you the kitchen of your dreams with no regrets. A great kitchen remodeling contractor understands that there is more to this process than coming up with a design and signing a contract.
Once the thought process and requirements phase is done, and the kitchen design and cabinet choices are finalized, cabinets can be ordered. Most kitchen cabinets take between 4-8 weeks to be manufactured and ready for delivery to your home. We will begin your kitchen renovation once the cabinetry is ready for delivery. From the time of demolition until all the cabinets are installed is usually 2 weeks or less. Granite, quartz and other countertop choices are templated at this point and make take 1 or 2 weeks to be manufactured and installed. Once installed, backsplash can be installed and final touches undertaken. Every kitchen remodel is unique and carries its own timetable but the vast majority of our Long Island kitchen remodeling projects are substantially complete within 2 weeks as fully competed within 3-4 weeks.
