Kitchen remodels not only increase property value, but they also transform the central hub of a home into a welcoming retreat.
Kitchens are the central gathering place in most homes, so it makes sense that kitchen remodels are so popular with homeowners. Think about everything that happens in this essential room—you prepare meals, talk about the day’s events, and visit with friends. You and your family spend hours each day in this space, so why settle for an outdated, inefficient kitchen?
Remodeling your kitchen will transform the space into something beautiful and functional. There are so many different customizations available that you should be able to get everything you desire. The William E. Carter Company takes pride in creating kitchens that not only serve a purpose today but also bring families together for many years to come.
The Process of Remodeling a Kitchen
When you purchased your home, you might have thought the kitchen was satisfactory, or at the very least, it was adequate. Once you moved in, however, you may have noticed a few shortcomings. There’s no reason why you can’t have the best kitchen on the block. Our team at the William E. Carter Company will transform your room from alright to amazing. We’ll sit down with you to make sure your new space represents your aesthetic and provides everything you want and need.
Before we move any walls or remove appliances, we need to understand your vision. We welcome our clients to show us pictures or tell us about their ideal kitchen. It’s important for us to know you on a personal level. Our design team will create a plan that takes every square inch of the room into consideration. We leave no stone unturned. Our attention to detail is evident in every update we complete.
There are a lot of components that go into designing a kitchen, and our team will help you make decisions for each one. We’ll discuss the type of cabinetry you want, from the doors to the hardware. Durable countertops are also essential, and you need a material that looks great today and will last for the long haul. We never cut any corners, and if it’s not good enough for us, it’s not good enough for your home either.
Your lifestyle is a critical part of the design process. How much do you cook? Do you enjoy cooking from scratch, or do you prefer a microwave? The design isn’t for the next occupant; it’s for you right now. Function and layout are at the top of the list. From where you put down the groceries to how many dishwashers you need, we’ll cover all the bases.
During construction, we’ll become your second family. We might not take your dog for a walk or drive the kids to school, but we will work diligently every day until the project is complete. Every nook and cranny of your kitchen will get our full and undivided attention. When our contractors move out, you’ll have a kitchen you can’t wait to move into.
Things to Consider During a Kitchen Remodel
You use the kitchen every single day. Even if you’re not a master chef, you still need to get milk out of the fridge. We encourage our clients to go big with this crucial remodel. It will have the biggest impact on your daily life, the quality of the time you spend with your family, and on the resale value of your home.
When you update the kitchen, one of the first things to consider are the appliances you want. Are you interested in the latest and greatest for making gourmet meals? Do you have a finish in mind to coordinate with your countertops and your cabinet? Do you like stainless or do you prefer black or white? You’ll get to decide between a gas or electric stovetop and if you need a convection oven. A wine fridge may catch your interest if you’re a wine connoisseur. And if you have a big family, don’t forget to add a second dishwasher or an under-counter ice maker. Let us show you all the options—we’ll make sure you get the gadgets you want and those you didn’t know you needed.
Cabinets are another integral part of the design. You need enough shelving and storage to keep your countertops clear. If you have a lot of small appliances, consider adding pop-up storage. You can even store all your spices in a designated, custom-designed drawer. Under-cabinet lighting is another popular upgrade with clients. We’ll go over all of your options, from where you want the refrigerator to how many electrical outlets you need to make sure all of your appliance needs are met.
And don’t forget about the flooring. A great floor can change the look and feel of your kitchen. We’ll help you make the right choice, so you’ll get the durability, usability, and appearance to fit your lifestyle and your design style.
